Publisher's Summary

Lord Dawlish is a well-liked and generous man. But he is poor, the poorest of his rank in the British Isles. His fiancée will not marry a man of modest means, so Dawlish decides to make his fortune any way possible. Romance, golf, the theater, and mad monkeys are all part of this merry mix-up that has more witty remarks and sharp retorts in one minute than most people could dream up in a lifetime.

Hilarious

Well written and funny. Now I see much of the influence upon Monty Python. Well done indeed.

Good story, annoying narration

Although not one of Wodehouse's best, it's still a good story. However, the narrator was very annoying. He stuck an extra 'r' in so many words. For example, saw became sore, thought became thort and banana became bananer. This was not just for some characters, but for everything he read, including American characters and the narrator. I suggest listening to the book by another narrator.

Excellent Narration!

Great story, made even better by the skill of the reader. He did the voices very well and paced it just right for my taste.

Uplifting Tale of True Romance

Ignore the plot machinations — this is Wodehouse at his extravagant best. By the end of the tale, the romantic in you will forgive him anything, in admiration at his infallible technique.

Cute story

A cute story with a few funny bits. (Not fall off the chair funny but ok) However, it kept one interested the whole time and moved swiftly.
Good narration. It’s tough to be a make narrator speaking the female voices but it’s to be expected. He’s a great narrator for inflections and knowing the intent of the author which I like.
I’ll be reading more from the author for sure.
