Summary

When the absent-minded Earl of Emsworth wanders off with the pride of his scarab collection, American millionaire J. Preston Peters is willing to pay $5000 to the person who can get it back for him. Discretion is necessary since Peters’ daughter is engaged to Emsworth’s son. Joan Valentine and Ashe Marson both decide to go after the reward—she as Aline Peter’s ladies maid, and he as Mr. Peter’s valet—and they all end up at Blandings Castle. But is it possible for anyone to steal back the scarab with The Efficient Baxter ever vigilant? This is, IMHO, one of Wodehouse’s funniest novels. –Debra Lynn

I agree with hannes - it took me about 10 minutes to get used to the accent, but then I really enjoyed the book. I recommend it to anyone who likes a fun story.

I really enjoyed this book. All of PG Wodehouse's books are fun and have little laugh out loud bits in them. Also the reader was very easy to listen to.

I disagree with the other reviews and find this easy to understand as well as easy to listen to. Good job!

There is something inherently wrong with a new York accent on such a British tale I'm sure the reader is an enthusiast and commendably so but surely unless we are well versed with pronunciation of each other's tongues should we not leave it to the natives?

Very bad reader.
