Would you listen to A Damsel in Distress again? Why?

I am a Wodehouse fan and there are very few of his stores that haven't thoroughly enjoyed. Whilst this may not be one of his best it's still very, very good. The typical thread of circumstances, characters' single-mindedness and downright tomfoolery lead the novel through catastrophe, plotting and delight. The course of true love, in the Wodehouse world, never runs smoothly.

Any additional comments?

Jonathan Cecil is one of the best performers of Wodehouse novels. He managers to really engage the listener and his ability to conjure up the characters personalities vocally is astounding.
