Narrator Simon Jones breathes life into the character of English gentleman Bertie Wooster as he tries to assist in three different love affairs--with disastrous yet comic consequences. Jones shines in conveying the superciliousness of Wooster; the level-headedness of his valet, Jeeves; and the crazy antics of the lovelorn. A comedy of errors ensues that only worsens as Wooster tries to play matchmaker, a situation that Jones plays to great effect. He particularly makes the listener laugh in the scene where the teetotaler Gussie Fink-Nottle gets drunk before speaking at a school awards ceremony and says all manner of inappropriate things. Jones then wraps things up as Jeeves steps in at the end of the book to save the day and fix the muddle created by Wooster. V.M.G.
