Originally published in 1910.
The story is as much fun as an old 1930's movie farce or a Chevy Chase movie. The humor is only partly from the snarks and wiseassery, but situational as well. Pretty much along the lines of "if anything can go wrong--it will".
Take a group of friends of the privileged class with good intentions (but no one with brains except the main protagonist) in a big old house in NYC. Add in a cantankerous aunt and a visiting civil engineer, a hastily concocted scheme crafted of good intentions, enforced medical quarantine and no servants, paparazzi, missing jewels, and you have the basic elements. Well worth the read!!
Karen Commins gives a fantastic audio performance as narrator! She has all of the audio emotions down perfectly, and it's easy to know which *character* is verbalizing.

This is a historical piece and is in the public domain. Society has rules for everything. The writing technique and wording is a little older than I prefer, but it was still worth the time listening. I think I will listen to more of her works.
The narrator is good and does society voices well. Her voice was smooth and I enjoyed this piece. Good Job.
