Publisher's Summary

At Deverill Hall, an idyllic Tudor manor in the picture-perfect village of King's Deverill, impostors are in the air. The prime example is man-about-town Bertie Wooster, doing a good turn to Gussie Fink-Nottle by impersonating him while he enjoys fourteen days away from society after being caught taking an unscheduled dip in the fountains of Trafalgar Square. Bertie is of course one of nature's gentlemen, but the stakes are high: if all is revealed, there's a danger that Gussie's simpering fiancée Madeline may turn her wide eyes on Bertie instead. It's a brilliant plan - until Gussie himself turns up, imitating Bertram Wooster. After that, only the massive brain of Jeeves (himself in disguise) can set things right.

Wodehouse strikes again with another classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would thoroughly recommend this book as it takes you back to a carefree time when gentlemen were gentlemen and life was one jolly jape after another


What did you like best about this story?

I like the style of Wodehouse's writing. His turn of phrase is sublime. The many aunts of Bertie's give great amusement


Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all of Jonathan 's performances and he is a master in capturing the characters within the book. You could say that all the books follow the same general storyline but I find them all full of humour and enjoyment


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh in many places, especially when he was in a tight spot with being discovered as impersonating Gussie and when Jeeves has to step in and save the day


Any additional comments?

Jonathan Cecil is a wonderful narrator and suits these books perfectly
