A Gentleman of Leisure

Gelesen von Mark Nelson

(4,491 Sterne; 55 Bewertungen)

A wealthy, love-sick bachelor, crooks, and card-sharps ensconced in an English castle make for a classic Wodehousian comedy of star-crossed lovers, imposters and stolen jewels. It all gets a bit thick, what? - Summary by Mark Nelson (7 hr 37 min)

My favorite Wodehouse, a creative genius and observer of human nature

(5 Sterne)

Very entertaining story. My 2 favorite laugh-out-loud parts are the description of the 2 dogs during the "burglary" and later on when the young British lord finally gets back at his miserly and controlling uncle. The reader did an excellent job with the various voices. Thank you for your generous time and effort. I learned a bit more about the sleazy side of NYC that unfortunately continues to this day. Highly recommended!
