Publisher's Summary

Bertie Wooster has been overdoing metropolitan life a bit, and the doctor orders fresh air in the depths of the country. But after moving with Jeeves to his cottage at Maiden Eggesford, Bertie soon finds himself surrounded by aunts - not only his redoubtable Aunt Dahlia but an aunt of Jeeves's too. Add a hyper-sensitive racehorse, a very important cat and a decidedly bossy fiancée - and all the ingredients are present for a plot in which aunts can exert their terrible authority. But Jeeves, of course, can cope with everything - even aunts, and even the country. The final Jeeves and Wooster novel shows P.G. Wodehouse still able to delight, well into his nineties.

Great Fun

I love listening to P G Wodehouse's books. You really appreciate the stunning quality of his writing, and you can savour the daftness of his meticulously plotted stories. And they always cheer me up with their gentle humour.

Aunts aren't Gentlemen is I think one of the later Jeeves stories and if truth be told it doesn't quite reach the heights of the earlier works. But it's still pretty good.

Jonathan Cecil might have been born to narrate these books. He is superb and brings P G Wodehouse's fantastic invention to life. The recording was made a long time ago so sound quality is not the best but you get used to it quickly.

Treat yourself to 4-5 hours of fun and escape!
