A treat to rival any Jeeves book

Where does A Damsel in Distress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I devoured all the Jeeves books (two or three times each) but I hadn't thought to explore other P G Wodehouse books. How silly of me and what a lot of lovely catching up I have to do. This was my first venture into non-Jeeves stories and it was delightful; a great start for anyone fearful of leaving behind their dear friend Bertie and venturing into unfamiliar waters. The characters in a Damsel in Distress are familiar in their Wodehouse-ness and the story is immediately appealing. And good old Jonathan Cecil as narrator; no one reads Wodehouse better than Cecil.
