Wodehouse + Eugenics ... what's not to love?

(5 Sterne)

plus a lively reader to move the story along... thanks, wonderful LibriVOX volunteers. I think this is hard to find on audio, so it is an extra thing!

Not your typical Wodehouse book

(5 Sterne)

This is a more emotional story than the usual satire of the Wodehouse book, but it still has a few laughs, and some deep thoughts as well. Don Jenkins does a great job with this story; the recordings are excellent. Enjoy!

Excellent! Fantastic!

(5 Sterne)

I like the characters in this book; PG Wodehouse captures the essence of many different types of people in this novel, with all their foibles, hopes, and strengths. The storyline entertains throughout. Excellent Librivox volunteer reader, too!

(4,5 Sterne)

Four stars for the story. Five stars for the reader.
