When Bertie Wooster and his faithful valet, Jeeves, visit Totleigh Towers, the stately home of Sir Watkyn Bassett, mayhem ensues. Bertie is given several tasks, many of which conflict, including stealing a silver-cow creamer, retrieving a purloined leather-bound notebook, and safeguarding the nuptials of two sets of friends. As is usually the case whenever Bertie Wooster tries to do anything, he finds himself deep in the soup, leaving it up to the clever Jeeves to save his neck. Nicolas Coster has a wonderful voice for reading most of Wodehouse, but not for the "Jeeves" stories, which are narrated in the voice of foppish Bertie Wooster. Coster's slow, deliberate reading style, with its aged rumble and occasional tremolo, does not suit Wooster's youth and lively personality.
