Publisher's Summary

Lord Biskerton, son and heir of the sixth Earl of Hoddesdon, and known to his friends as Biscuit, had red hair, a preliminary scenario for a moustache and a noble determination to escape the disgrace of work. His friend Berry Conway, however, had succumbed to economic pressure and become the secretary to T. Paterson Frisby, a dyspeptic American who had twenty million and loved every cent of it.When Biscuit and Berry pooled ideas for their mutual betterment, and one idea concerned Ann Moon, Frisby's beautiful niece and heiress, they had to lean heavily on Aunt Vera, an old campaigner in the field of love. How Uncle Paterson was caught short and rushed to cover, while Aunt Vera hedged the market with a double play and salted down two money-making engagements for the House of Hoddesdon, is one of the most irresistible tales of the one and only P. G.

Classic Wodehouse and very enjoyableI

Would you consider the audio edition of Big Money to be better than the print version?

In some circumstances (weeding or washing up!).


Would you be willing to try another book from P. G. Wodehouse? Why or why not?

Oh yes, definitely


What does Jonathan Cecil bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His voices are very good - he has just the right sort of 'English' accent to do the silly young men.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - over three or four days


Any additional comments?

Very good escapism and cheering. I heard Stephen Fry say that Wodehouse's books were the most borrowed in prison libraries - surprising but true.
