This adventure of the suave, but loopy, Frederick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is hilarious and quite well done. The portrayals of Ickenham's hapless relatives as they're enmeshed in his nets of imposture and misdirection are classics of their kind. british narrator,Jonathan Cecil succeeds all around, reading expressively and slowly. His portrayal of Ickenham's nephew, Pongo, who is reduced to trembling desperation by the earl's antics, is particularly good. Immensely enjoyable listening.
