Poor old Bertie Wooster’s been overdoing the metropolitan lifestyle. On doctor’s orders, he moves with his redoubtable servant, Jeeves, for a rest in the country. However, after moving to the ghastly reality that is Maiden Egglesford, Bertie finds himself surrounded by aunts - most notably, his snarky Aunt Dahlia. Throw a very important cat, an over-sensitive racehorse and an overbearing fiancée into the mix and you’ve got all the ingredients for a classic PG Wodehouse romp.
This MP3 audiobook has been lovingly voiced by Jonathan Cecil. If you think you know the voice, it’s because you probably do - Cecil played Wooster in the TV adaptation of Thank You, PG Wodehouse and has recorded a great number of audiobooks for MP3 and CD audiobook titles. The Spectator newspaper once described him as “one of the finest upper-class-twits of his era,” making him nigh on the perfect choice as narrator of this particular tale.
Aunts Aren’t Gentlemen is packed with whimsy, farce and Wodehouse’s love of breezy, upper-crust English. His characters, well-defined on the page, are brought to life by Cecil’s plumy tones, creating a CD audiobook that is the perfect companion for a quiet night in. First class!
