Publisher's Summary

Bill (Lord) Rowcester was well and truly in the gumbo. With the benefit of hindsight he could see that setting himself up as a Silver Ring bookie might not have been his smartest move ever. Particularly when being down on his dibbs threatens his oncoming nuptials with the sterling Jill Wyvern. Lucky for Bill he had the land-lease of Jeeves. Lucky indeed that the fish-fed mastermind's formidable genius was at liberty to take a header into such teasers as borrowing the stellar Mrs. Spottsworth's pendent for an hour or three or overseeing the added ingredients of Abbey's Derby Dinner, to say nothing of his lordship's mauve pajamas.

Great book ruined by awful narration

A great book from Wodehouse as any. Between Billy's Incessant gulping and Rosy's linking-R, the audio book is mired by Nigel's overly dramatic narration.

This is Jeeves without Wooster

This is solid Wodehouse but not his best. It is Jeeves without Wooster and so it doesn't contain their chemistry. It doesn't have Wooster's first-person narrative. There is none of the sparkle that Bertie's narrative voice brings to the other Jeeves stories. The young hero is just another person in the world that is described, not really the focal point of the story even though he functions exactly the way Bertie Wooster functions in the other stoies.

My advice, read it last. Don't expect much more than a curiosity. We shouldn't expect all of Plum's books to be great. But, sure, have it when you are ready for it.

Fun story. Bad American accent.

It’s a decent Wodehouse and other than inexplicably throwing hard R sounds at the end of all words that end with A for Mrs. Spottsworth’s “American” accent, an adequate narration.

The American accent needs work.

Unfortunately there were way too many “r”s in places they don’t belong. I would have almost preferred keeping the English accent all the way through.

Contains the most despicable character ever enounced

Overall, an average amount of LOL moments for a PGW book (quite a few). Different narrators lend different interpretations and I concede that Nigel did not hit the high mark with the main character. But between PG and Nigel, I was impressed that I have never met a character I reviled more than Rory (or Sir Roderick). If you share my sensibilities, see if you agree that Rory is the person you would most want to avoid ever spending time with in real life. It’s my 2 cents worth that his character is one of the most annoyingly memorable in Audible history.

Egregious reader

The reader’s nauseating portrayal of the main character renders this book almost unlistenable. Most of the other characters are dine well. The story is typical Wodehouse / Jeeves which is always enjoyable, but I would suggest looking for a different version of this audio book unless you enjoy listening to a baby-talk / Jar Jar Binks type character.
