But this book has reminded me how relative intelligence is, as when it comes to other characters Wooster encounters he is an Einstein and definitely not one for bureaucratic nonsense. The ending has a number of pleasing flourishes and a nice nod towards Golden Age detective fiction. My only criticism of this book is that the final pages needed a little more zip.
But this is only a minor complaint. Whilst Wooster is usually polite and socially correct in conversation he has his moments where the gloves are off and he lets you know what he really thinks about people. I really want to use this last one in conversation now. His trip to the tailors more than justifies the purchase of this book and wannabe spies will also appreciate his brief guide on the three ways to hide behind a sofa.
If you need a dead body on the carpet by chapter two or a high powered action fight scene in every alternate chapter then yes this book will be torture for you. But for those who enjoy the slower pace of a many coursed gourmet meal then this is definitely the book for you. So as my final rating suggests this was a great read and definitely what I needed and maybe it might be what you need to read as well.

Now I find that I like nothing better than a parody of Lovecraft, and a mash up of 50s style scholcky horror films and Lovecraft is just about as good as it gets. Shandon Loring did a great job with this delightful nonsense. Each character was an individual in his claws, er I mean hands. I can't figure out how such a deep voiced male can do such a strong falsetto when voicing females. And he never makes the mistake of having one high female voice for all the women he reads lines for. If only he would read Scream for Jeeves Your audiobook is waiting…. The Thing from Lover's Lane.
