When Bertie Wooster goes to stay with his Aunt Dahlia at Brinkley Court and unexpectedly becomes engaged to the imperious Lady Florence Craye, disaster threatens from all sides.

While Florence tries to cultivate Bertie’s mind, her former fiancé, hefty ex-policeman “Stilton” Cheesewright, threatens to beat his body to a pulp, and her new admirer, the bleating poet Percy Gorringe, tries to borrow a thousand pounds.

To cap it all, there’s a jewelry heist; plus, Bertie has incurred the disapproval of Jeeves by growing a mustache. All in all, it’s a classic Wodehouse farce.

  • “Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale…He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.”

    Evelyn Waugh, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor—bubblingly witty and dryly loony.”

    Entertainment Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miles Rind | 2/19/2014

    " Bertie at one point describes Aunt Dahlia's face as "shining like the seat of a bus driver's trousers." A line like that by itself should make you want to read the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/13/2014

    " It's not the best of the Wooster and Jeeves series, but it is still great. Good old frivolous fun. I love pulling out one of these books simply to enjoy the good humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 2/11/2014

    " Laughed my head off. I expect to re-read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie Billekens | 2/9/2014

    " Jeeves and Wooster, always fun and easy. I've a lot going on at the moment, especially at work, so I've not really been able to properly concentrate on any one book. But Wooster's buffoonery is always good to laugh at, so I did, and I love the idea that I have another two or so on my to-read shelf for other busy times ahead. The language is delightful and the antics are funny, and it's good sometimes to know that Jeeves will clear the mess up in the end. :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rickeclectic | 2/4/2014

    " Great Jeeves and Worcester, with Aunt Dahlia and a few of Bertie's friends for good measure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noah | 1/31/2014

    " Rather funny and a good laugh, though getting somewhat drawn out in the middle. This was the first Wooster book I've read alone (the others I've either started to read fully outloud in a group) and the flavor was very different (though not worse or better). The beginning of the book had me reading out sections to my wife almost every page, but towards the middle, when Wooster goes to visit his aunt, the plot is advanced mostly by rather humorless conversations and the fun narration goes a bit by the wayside. Towards the end it picks up again with a few enjoyable twists and some good descriptions, but still didn't (for me) pick up to what the beginning was like. Still, a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 1/27/2014

    " Always good. If I could be one fictional character in history it would be Bertie Wooster. The plot does not really matter although it is the same mix of country house, aunt, women who wish to marry bertie to spite someone else, mix ups and late night tip toeing around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette Morris | 1/11/2014

    " Sublime silliness . . . wonderful book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 1/10/2014

    " Bertie at his best. I love the "I say" interjections when trying to talk to his Aunt Dahlia and her scathing insults. I love Bertie being constantly insulted and mildly upset by it. I love how Bertie always avoids the gallows. Wodehouse knew his craft. Fun stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rissie | 1/7/2014

    " Pretty standard Jeeves and Wooster stuff. I liked it, but there are others that I like more (Jeeves in the Morning and Code of the Woosters). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Jefferson | 12/18/2013

    " An entertaining read. I can see why Stephen Fry loves these books. While reading it I couldn't help but get nostalgic for the old tv series and rented the first season. Lots of twists and turns but always in an upbeat Wooster way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 11/27/2013

    " Although I much prefer the earliest Wodehouse to most of the later stuff, it seems to me he really gave his all to the Jeeves/Wooster pairing. Everything is more substantial in this book - the characters, the plots, etc. Lovely light reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberto | 11/27/2013

    " I can't think of any other book that has shown me as good a time as this one has. An absolute non-hipsterish pleasure. I'll probably have to go off and read all the rest of them now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lamplight | 11/14/2013

    " I think I esp. like the stories with Aunt Dahlia/Bertie Wooster storylines. Laughing a lot so far...Aunt Dahlia picks up a small footstoll and hurls it at a small china figurine. I almost choked with laughter :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 11/11/2013

    " I adore the Bertie and Jeeves books. They are all hilarious in their own witty, British, Wooster way. In this one, Jeeves despises Bertie's mustache. Excellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/11/2013

    " I LOVE this author- he has such a surprisingly slap-stick style, and is always good for several out-loud laughs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R. | 11/10/2013

    " AKA "Bertie Wooster Sees It Through" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alfredo | 6/14/2013

    " Any of the Jeeves books is excellent. Read pratically anything by Wodehouse and you'll be glad you did! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 4/2/2013

    " Not rubbish, very funny and light. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 6/1/2012

    " If you have the time, Wodehouse is a great read. His pineapple/mango blend of mystery and witty fiction is a refreshing smoothie on the beach of reading. What I'm saying is, this is great summer/vacation reading. I thoroughly enjoyed his metaphors and witty ways of bringing a story to life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Tindall | 10/28/2011

    " Not my favorite Wodehouse, but it's Wodehouse and nonetheless brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Srikanth R | 10/1/2011

    " superb... laughed throughout... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katya Vinogradova | 9/12/2011

    " P.G. Woodhouse will always be a five-star read for me, because his fictional world is the most comfortable and lovely of them all! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler Malone | 8/20/2011

    " One of my favorite Jeeves novels. It brings so much to the table in terms of the great mustache debate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Bruyneel | 7/8/2011

    " As eloquent as it is funny; but that is true of everything PG wrote. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 6/22/2011

    " PG Wodehouse is a comic genius as always. Unfortunately, unlike the tv show, there was no drag. That only could've made it funnier. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/19/2011

    " I've been listening to Jeeves and Wooster books and think they're hilarious! Love the characters and love the language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elisha | 1/30/2011

    " The book jacket quote says it all: "It is impossible to read Wodehouse and feel bad". It is. It really is.

    Enough said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra | 11/12/2010

    " I like the books, but (sadly) the TV-series with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are som much better... "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
