Publisher's Summary

The uncle in question is Frederick Altamount Cornwallis, Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred, an old boy of such a sunny and youthful nature that explosions of sweetness and light detonate all around him (in the course, it must be said, of a plot that involves blackmail, impersonation, knock-out drops, stealing, arrests and potential jewel-smuggling).
This is Wodehouse at his very best, with sundered lovers, explorers, broke publishers and irascible aristocrats all eventually yielding to the magic, ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous touch of Uncle Fred. It is, as Richard Usborne writes, 'a brilliantly sustained rattle of word-perfect dialogue and narrative topping a very complicated and well-controlled plot'.

So funny you will laugh till you cry

If you have never read a P G Wodehouse before maybe it would be better to go for a Jevees', but if you are a fan then you will love this one. It is classic Wodehouse.Very well read and easy to listern to, in fact it's hard to turn off.It's incredibly funny,and you wont be able to stop laughing.

Dynamite indeed

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

funny and witty as ever, Wodehouse at his best (again). It never ceases to amaze me that the same basic plots are repeated over and over in Wodehouse and yet they come fresh at you everytime.


Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cecil – was your favourite?

Cecil can do the english local accents wonderfully, even his women sound plausible
