Summary

Poor Sir Buckstone Abbott, Bart! Not only does he own in Walsingford Hall, one of the least attractive stately homes in the country, but he has to take in paying guests to keep it upright. So when it seems a rich (if not very nice) continental princess might buy it, he's overjoyed - particularly as he's being rooked by the publisher of his sporting memoirs. His daughter Jane comes up trumps in the company of the playwright Joe - but not before engagements are broken and fortunes lost and made.

Very funny

This story is a wonderful example of PG Wodehouse silliness. Jonathan Cecil performs it perfectly.
One minor niggle, this is obviously a copy from the CD versions such that it includes the words “end of CD 2” and “start of CD 3” etc at what would be the change point. Come on Audible, this is a simple thing to fix and you should be embarrassed that it’s been left in.
One other point of warning, the book is a product of its time and includes a couple of references to the “N” word in the phrase “sweating like a N...”.

Classic Wodehouse.

Classic Wodehouse and Cecil too. He takes you right there with them, faultless narrative by a master.

Sound quality is poor

Jonathan Cecil is a wonderful narrator but the reading is spoiled by him saying the disks number and the sound quality

Jonathan Cecil - the master narrator

Took a while to get into it, but it eventually grew on me.
The narrator was as usual wonderful, bringing the characters to light.

An absolute corker!

This is great stuff. Wodehouse with a love story - what more could you want. Definitely right up there for me, along with Luck of the Bodkins. Also, I very much like the narrator’s voice and style. All top notch.

Up to standard

A classic Wodehouse farce with all coming right in the end. A very funny and clever light read.

The best fun I've had from a book in ages!

This book is an astonishing creation and read equally astonishingly! You will just have to listen to it to find out why!
