Bertie Wooster's friend Gussie Fink-Nottle is sentenced to 14 days for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square. Bertie is worried that Gussie's fiancé Madeline will be angry because she has a distressing habit of turning her attentions to Bertie when her fiancé upsets her. Bertie has the bright idea of impersonating Gussie, and showing up at Deverill Hall. The situation is wonderfully comical when Gussie shows up, posing as Bertie. Only Jeeves, arriving in his own disguise, can sort out this mess. Download and start listening now!

    " Great fun--this time there were twice as many sundered hearts than usual and Bertie stands up to his aunt, off-stage at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/14/2014

    " Bertie Wooster goes to stay at Deverill Hall, in fear that Madeleine Bassett will decide to marry him. Complex and amusing situations tidily resolved by Jeeves, as ever. Gentle humour and clever plotting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/9/2014

    " Jeeves proves he's not above a little questionable behavior on Bertie's behalf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jay | 1/15/2014

    " This is my new favorite Wodehouse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Captain Whitney | 1/9/2014

    " Oh my heck, when you've got Bertie pretending to be Gussie and Gussie pretending to be Bertie and five aunts -- dottie, dratted, and deaf -- thrown to-gether with Catsmeat Potter-Pirbright and his sister Stiffy ... WELL! This is one of the most confusing, BEST Wodehouse novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jen8998 | 1/5/2014

    " Light read but very amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Oscar Reyes | 1/5/2014

    " Blazed through it and then immediately turned around and did it again. Cried just as hard from laughing the second time around the second time around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/3/2014

    " We are listening to this on CD as a family...highly entertaining to all. many woosterisms are enering our family vocabulary (making us sound even more full of British slang than usual!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/27/2013

    " Listened to it in the car to and from KC, MO. Liked it but I admit I fell asleep a couple times. I get a little tired of the silly misunderstandings and convoluted coverups inherent in any Bertie Wooster escapade. But you have to love these characters! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula Hiatt | 12/24/2013

    " Always a fan of Wodehouse! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesper | 10/8/2013

    " Wodehouse is a magician of words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judi | 9/28/2013

    " A perfect interlude of wit. Look forward to reading more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ailish | 8/30/2013

    " A country house, sundered hearts, false identities, gangs of aunts, a village concert, trouble with the local policeman, a small but effective cosh, Bertie Wooster and Jeeves. A wonderful combination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nik | 8/25/2013

    " Enjoyable, silly story, with some excellent linguistic turns, and a few very funny jokes. Not the best Jeeves and Wooster but still a highly recommended read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 7/21/2013

    " Not as funny as other Wodehouse works, but still pretty dang funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mister | 4/13/2013

    " Are they all the same, are they all different? They're all good, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. Smith | 12/15/2012

    " Starts off with Wooster drunk and just gets better "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arnold | 11/8/2012

    " Well narrated. Quite enjoyable. Got it from the library. I love ILL. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 12/26/2011

    " A very fun, fairly quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 11/18/2011

    " Good and funny book. Makes you cringe when you read all the scrapes that Wooster manages to entail himself in and you are just wishing for Jeeves to appear to make things all right again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 8/18/2011

    " Listened to this audiobook with my wife on a long road trip from Dallas to Kansas City. Strange hearing "I say, old blighters" and "what ho, chaps" as you're driving through red-neck Oklahoma. But it was enjoyable and the narrator played all the parts well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doc & Charly | 2/13/2011

    " Bertie and Jeeves come to the rescue of several couples whose love lives have gone astray. There are lots of laughs along the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Homeira14 | 10/29/2010

    " What can I say? It's P.G. Wodehouse: one of the funniest British writers of all time. I needed some levity after a couple "heavy" books -- glad I did. I hadn't read Wooster and Jeeves book in a over a decade; it was time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elena | 9/30/2010

    " Great fun--this time there were twice as many sundered hearts than usual and Bertie stands up to his aunt, off-stage at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 7/3/2010

    " Not one of the better Bertie/Jeeves efforts, but still outstanding. Bertie must grapple with no fewer than five aunts at the same country house. Gussie and Madeline Bassett's engagement again becomes imperiled... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rissie | 5/30/2010

    " Pretty standard Wodehouse fare – crazy plot, hilarious writing, spot-on descriptions and a wild cast of loony characters. My idea of perfect beach reading! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/12/2010

    " Love the Wodester! So funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 2/24/2010

    " British humor and I don't mix well.


    ******
    Must revise review. It seems I do like Wodehouse. This one was just too over the top. Too many layers of ridiculous relationship trouble. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 2/12/2010

    " My first Wodehouse book and still my favorite! Hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Homeira14 | 1/25/2010

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.
