By far the most prolific audiobook interpreter of P.G. Wodehouse's comic English manor-house tales, Frederick Davidson (David Case) here offers a performance superior to most of his other efforts. Partly it is because there are few young women characters--Davidson has only one interpretation of young women, and when there is more than one, his reading tends to stumble. Partly too he manages to keep excessive world-weariness out of his voice, which he fails to do in various other titles, Wodehouse and not. This is the very first Jeeves and Wooster story, and Aunt Agatha alone is worth the price of admission. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
