Publisher's Summary

Seize this wonderful chance to embark on a Wodehousian voyage on the luxurious liner S.S. Atlantic - in the company of Monty Bodkin, whose passion for Gertrude Butterwick knows no bounds (except those set by the wild-at-heart Hollywood starlet Lotus Blossom and her pet alligator). Also aboard are a movie mogul, the centre-forward for the All-England ladies hockey team and the two Tennyson brothers (one of whom has been mistaken for the late poet laureate and given a fat movie contract...). Also a chatty steward, and a mouse doll in which all manner of things can be hidden. This hilarious comic novel is Wodehouse at full sail - a voyage of pure delight.

Well written - well read

The publisher's summary sums up the plot very well - and Wodehouse is in his usual excellent form devising twists and turns, some of which you see coming and look forward to and others which take you by surpise.



Jonathan Cecil narrates this very well, handling a number of different accents with professional competence.



I listened to this with my father, a lifelong Wodehouse fan, on a journey from Buckinghamshire to Inverness-shire and we were only disappointed that our destination was not somewhat further away.

Clunky practice for Jeeves and Wooster

Although I'm a fan of other PGW books, this one is so full of characters staggering around in shellshocked silence at the news of some contrived plot twist, and then making ridiculously unlikely plot-advancing decisions in response, I simply couldn't make it to the end.
It's read very well though, and the sound is clear which sets it apart from other PGW books from audible.
