Delightfully funny tale


(5 stars)

This is a delightfully funny story about an intelligent, honest, strong and warm-hearted woman. The cast of characters is quite a contrast to our young heroine and set her off nicely. Kara Schallenberg gives another excellent reading - you can tell that she is enjoying Sally's adventures as much as her listeners are.


(5 stars)

what a delight! the reader is perfect, her voice carry's each person beautifully. and of course Wodehouse puts outs a fun yarn with a amusing story and Sally is endearing. Predictable, but its not about the end, its about the journey. I loved it!

I'm a woodhouse nut! (possibly just a nut lol)


(5 stars)

I can't get enough of this wonderful author and I am extremely impressed with the recording as well as the reader.. can't wait to listen to another of woodhouse's books!

PGW sans Jeeves


(5 stars)

Another great book by PG Wodehouse, refreshingly without Jeeves and Bertie. A sweet romance with PGWs wonderful wit and wisdom. Kara Shallenberg’s interpretive reading brought the audio book to life. A joyous and fun read!

Fun!


(5 stars)

This is a light, fun story that I enjoyed very much. The main character has a wonderful sense of humor, which I suspect mirrors the author’s. Very nicely narrated too. Thank you for all your effort.

Great Reader, Good Book


(5 stars)

I believe Kara Shallenberg could read a manual on how to use a new coffee maker or toaster and make it sound interesting. I am genuinely sincere when I say she reads everything in a manner that makes it come to life with the sparkle of her kind and gentle manner. God bless you Kara. As usual, Wodehouse wrote with his wonderful way of making one feel better about life and love and presented serious topics with the sunny side up. God bless all of you at Librivox.

Wonderful Story


(5 stars)

I must admit, with each new Wodehouse book I listen to, I am becoming a diehard fan. :-) Sally is an honest-hearted girl who seeks to help others and always looks at the positive side of any situation. Enter Ginger who makes a muddle of everything. Who else could see the positive aspects of someone like that besides Sally? A positively wonderful story, the narrator does a wonderful job with reading and voices. Enjoy!

Worth a Second Listen


(5 stars)

If every teenage girl in America were to read this book, with a full understanding of the cultural context of Wodehouse's life, we'd all be living in a better world 20 years hence. Kara Shallenberg is a top-notch reader for this, as usual.
