Thank You, Jeeves is the first novel to feature the incomparable valet Jeeves and his hapless charge Bertie Wooster - and you've hardly started when he resigns over Bertie's dedicated but somewhat untuneful playing of the banjo. In high dudgeon, Bertie disappears to the country as a guest of his chum Chuffy - only to find his peace shattered by the arrival of his ex-fiancée Pauline Stoker, her formidable father and the eminent loony-doctor Sir Roderick Glossop.
When Chuffy falls in love with Pauline and Bertie seems to be caught in flagrante, a situation boils up which only Jeeves (whether employed or not) can simmer down...A display of sustained comic brilliance, this novel shows Wodehouse rising to the top of his game.

this is an excellent listen,thoroughly entertaining from start to finish,plus in my opinion as a Wodehouse narrator, jonathan Cecil cannot be beaten !
This is an excellent book which is very well adapted into an audiobook by the narrator. It is a classic and I recommend it highly.
Jeeves and Bertie at their finest. The language and the laughs excel.
Imperative listening. Just wonderful word play.
An audible enthusiast, with a strong preference for non fiction, chiefly military and political history.
Top quality entertainment
Wodehouse's writing is possibly the best I have ever read (or listened to, in this case)
Cecil gives a fantastic performance as Bertie Wooster, although actually his subtle portrayal of the other characters is just as good.
Yes, and I have re-listened to it several times.
This novel absolutely takes the cake, it has thr typical hilarious mix ups and doom of impending marriage for Bertie. What set it apart for me was the praise Jeeves had for Bertir and their reconciliation at the end. Jonathan Cecil is a delight as always.
Trying to buy everything on CD
Wonderful story and characters written in a beautiful form of English. The reading was excellent with all the right voices to make it sound more like a play than a book.
Been reading, been listening The books just keep on coming, enriching my life as a whole
For anyone who enjoys Wodehouse's style this audiobook is going to be good fun, with the narrator as an experienced as Cecil, you'll have good fun with this title. The stories as always need careful attention paid to them with the sheer number of characters involved so maybe re-listening would be a good idea if you're struggling.
Overall very enjoyable
"There is a limit"
What may cause Jeeves to continuously leave his position? Marvelous performance. I truly enjoy this book. It is so quirky.
