Something New

(4.6 stars; 155 reviews)

When the absent-minded Earl of Emsworth wanders off with the pride of his scarab collection, American millionaire J. Preston Peters is willing to pay $5000 to the person who can get it back for him. Discretion is necessary since Peters’ daughter is engaged to Emsworth’s son. Joan Valentine and Ashe Marson both decide to go after the reward—she as Aline Peter’s ladies maid, and he as Mr. Peter’s valet—and they all end up at Blandings Castle. But is it possible for anyone to steal back the scarab with The Efficient Baxter ever vigilant? This is, IMHO, one of Wodehouse’s funniest novels. –Debra Lynn

Something New

(4.5 stars)

I did not like this book as much as others by the same author. Not a lot actually happened and it was somewhat slow paced, but it was good listening anyway. Thebreadet, Debra Lynn, did a very good job. Hope to find many other books read ny her. She has the five stars. the book itself has four stars. Thank you.

This is my favorite Wodehouse book! I have listened to it probably 5 times! The story is top notch and hilarious! I literally laughed out loud at times. :-) The reader is also excellent. :-) I definitely recommend it. This would also be a great book to introduce someone to Wodehouse.

Amusing story

(5 stars)

Hilarious story of the rivals in a drama of stealing back a stolen scarab. One of P.G. Wodehouse's most amusing stories. Well worth listening to! & a pleasing reader also. You won't be disappointed. P.S. A dash of Wodehouse romance rounds out the story nicely.

Great entertainment!

Good story. Not as funny as Right Ho Jeeves. Reader did okay, though I wish she'd swallow more often.
