Publisher's Summary

Just as Bertie Wooster is a member of the Drones Club, Jeeves has a club of his own, the Junior Ganymede, exclusively for butlers and gentlemen's gentlemen. In its inner sanctum is kept the Book of Revelations, where the less than perfect habits of their employers are lovingly recorded. The book is, of course, pure dynamite. So what happens when it disappears into potentially hostile hands?Tossed about in the resulting whirlwind you'll find lots of Wodehouse's favourite characters - and a welcome return to Market Snodsbury, in the middle of one of the most chaotic elections of modern times.

    "Good stuff from the master"

    I love listening to P G Wodehouse audiobooks. He is such a good writer that it is sheer pleasure to go at the pace of the narrator so you can savour every word and chortle at every joke.

    PGW is on top form in this quite short Jeeves outing. Dinsdale Landen is a fine narrator - really enjoying himself and bringing the book splendidly to life - but he goes just a tad too fast for my liking. Still, well worth a listen and excellent entertainment.

    "Read too fast"
    What did you like most about Much Obliged, Jeeves?

    The usual Wodehouse story. Fun and beautiful use of language.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This is read far too fast! It is read at such a rate that I had to listen to it on 75% speed - the first time I have ever had to use this facility. It's not too slow at this speed but it is sometimes difficult to know who is speaking as the characters are not differentiated sufficiently.

    "Narrator in a bit of a rush"

    Story was fine, a bit of a rehash of elements of other stories but some new material and characters too. I found the narration a bit too rushed, often had to skip back to listen again to sentences. Also the style for Jeeves wasn't quite right - intonation going up at the end of sentences, whereas I always think of Jeeves as being more sepulchral. All in all it was fine but I prefer Jonathan Cecil's reading, and the earlier stories.

    "Much Obliged, Jeeves"

    The book is quite funny, but the reader Dinsdale Landen does not do it justice. He has a pleasant voice, and I'm sure he's very talented - but he reads too fast, crowding the sentences, and the voices of different speakers are too much alike. I found it difficult to tell who was speaking and when the speaker changed, and I kept wishing that it was Martin Jarvis or Jonathan Cecil reading, instead. It was heavy going, to quote Mr. Wodehouse.....

    I'd give it 5 stars if Jarvis or Cecil was reading.

    "Difficult narrator"

    Compared to some of the other narrators of P.G. Wodehouse's books, this one was not pleasant to listen to--the characters often sounded alike and the narration seemed rushed. Not a bad PGW story; wish it would have been a different narrator.

    "Hilarious"

    Wodehouse never disappoints, giving me many belly-laughs which must make the neighbours question my sanity if they hear.
