"Jonathan Cecil amazes as he reads this larky narrative, capturing perfectly the befuddled Wooster, the conniving Stilton Cheesewright, and the divine Florence with flawless aplomb." (AudioFile)
"I'm walking but I'm reading!"
Bertie is growing a moustache and Jeeves disapproves. Bertie is determined to keep said moustache but unfortunately, novelist and ex-fiance Florence Craye, admires the moustache resulting in the wrath of Stilton Cheesewright, a "combustible chap", who considers the moustache a cheap trick by Bertie to steal his girl.
When Bertie gets a call for assistance from Aunt Dahlia to rush down to her "country pile" at Brinkley Court, he unfortunately finds himself in close proximity to Florence Craye, and Stilton Cheesewright.
Bring on those Jeeves specials.
Contains the fabulous insult:
“You revoting young piece of cheese.”
1 have not read Wodehouse for years, and found many aspects of his style had not worn well. However, he and this reader still had me laughing often.
PG Wodehouse is a genius. These books are fantastic. The world of Bertie is wonderful and I love visiting it. Funny, wonderful phrases run throughout. Bertie reminds us that it is enough simply to be kind and have the best intentions.
I couldn't recommend these books highly enough and (without wanting to seem too gushing) I think my life would be poorer and darker without Jeeves and Wooster. Thank you PGW
"narration not skippy enough for Bertie"
sorry, narrator too slow and too received pronunciation to convey Bertie's joie de vivre. will be looking for other readers
