Summary

If you come into a lot of money, life becomes easier, right?

No, wrong - at least for Sally Nicholas, whose generosity of spirit immediately runs into all the slings and arrows outrageous fortune can send. Her handsome fiance turns out not to be all he seems - and then there is the show he's written, which Sally puts on in the theatre. No, in this delightful early novel from the master of English comedy, life is not straightforward at all.

But waiting in the wings is Ginger Kemp, who really does adore her, seems to make a hash of everything he tries and yet is always ready to try something else. If money becomes a problem, perhaps Ginger will provide a solution.

Brilliant Jonathan Cecil and brilliant P. G. Wodehouse

If, like me, you are disappointed to find that you’ve bought a P. G. Wodehouse audiobook and the narration is just not up to the mark, rest assured because Jonathan Cecil sets the standard. He is always brilliant and captures the essence of Wodehouse. Always check out the narrator of Wodehouse audiobooks because, sadly, there are some unlistenables out there. I could name one in particular but that wouldn’t be fair.

Classic (non-Jeeves) Wodehouse

Whenever I'm reading a non-Jeeves or non-Blandings Wodehouse story, I mostly feel like I'm reading the book for some old-fashioned musical: a story full of plucky heroines, misguided heroes, misunderstandings, and delightfully happy endings.

And 'The Adventures of Sally" is another in this vein. Well-read as usual by Jonathan Cecil (my favourite Wodehouse reader), it's a nice little story. Not a lot of laugh-out-loud moments, and a little predictable, but still enjoyable - especially if you're in the mood for a happy ending!
