Lady Constance Keeble, sister of Lord Emsworth of Blandings Castle, has both an imperious manner and a valuable diamond necklace. The precarious peace of Blandings is shattered when her necklace becomes the object of dark plottings, for within the castle lurk some well connected jewel thieves - among them the Honourable Freddie Threepwood, Lord Emsworth's younger son, who wants the reward money to set up a bookmaking business. Psmith, the elegant socialist, is also after it for his newly married chum Mike. And on patrol with the impossible task of bringing management to Blandings is the Efficient Baxter, whose strivings for order lead to a memorable encounter with the castle flowerpots. Will peace ever return to Blandings Castle...?More

A classic Wodehouse
Totally ruined by muffled recording.
Any Wodehouse will enjoy this story. However, it sounds like it's been ripped by a well worn out cassette Most of the time the recording is so muffled, you can hardly hear it and the quality seems to alter every 30 minutes or so, thus reinforcing that supposition.
Favorite character has to be The Hon Freddie.
The bits that aren't muffled are good. Maybe the dreadful American accents could have been better.....
As it's unabridged, none... Doh.
Don't waste your money on this version.
It's so badly dubbed from tape that it'll just drive you mad. I can only assume Audible picked up a tape at some car boot sale and used it to convert to MP3..
I've been playing this in the car and I have the volume turned up full on both MP3 player and car audio up loud and it's still only just bearable, but attention tends to wonder off as the experience is just not good, and I'm being polite.
Not had this problem with any other Audible title...... so far......But I suspect the other Blandings recordings might suffer from same effect....
In one word: Dreadful.
