Summary:

Jeeves is on holiday in Herne Bay, and while he's away, the world caves in on Bertie Wooster. For a start, Bertie's astonished to read in the Times of his own engagement to the mercurial Bobbie Wickham. Then, at Brinkley Court, his Aunt Dahlia's establishment, he finds his awful former headmaster in attendance, ready to award the prizes at Market Snodsbury Grammar School. And finally the Brinkley butler turns out, for reasons of his own, to be Bertie's nemesis in disguise, the brain surgeon Sir Roderick Glossop. With all occasions informing against him, Bertie has to hightail it to Herne Bay to liberate Jeeves from his shrimping net. And after that, the fun really starts.

    This book is listed as being narrated by Ian Carmichael, who played Lord Peter Wimsey in the old Masterpiece Theatre series such as The Nine Tailors and Clouds of Witness. Instead it is narrated by Frederick Davidson. I have never understood Davidson's popularity. I don't believe that he read the books he narrated before recording them, and his delivery is annoyingly sing-song.
