Publisher's Summary

Gussie Fink-Nottle's knowledge of the common newt is unparalleled. Drop him in a pond of newts and his behaviour will be exemplary, but introduce him to a girl and watch him turn pink, yammer, and suddenly stampede for great open spaces. Even with Madeline Bassett, who feels that the stars are God's daisy chain, his tongue is tied in reef-knots. And his chum Tuppy Glossop isn't getting on much better with Madeline's delectable friend Angela.

With so many broken hearts lying about him, Bertie Wooster can't sit idly by. The happiness of a pal - two pals, in fact - is at stake. But somehow Bertie's best-laid plans land everyone in the soup, and so it's just as well that Jeeves is ever at hand to apply his bulging brains to the problems of young love. Along with The Code of the Woosters, Right Ho, Jeeves is considered by many his finest comic novel - and perhaps the finest in the English language.

What the Critics Say

"Jonathan Cecil reads the story with a fine ear for comic wordplay and absurdity, giving fitting caricatured voices to the likes of Fink-Nottle and Glossop. He gives Wooster's first-person narrative the right balance." (AudioFile)

    "Incredible"

    This is one of the best audio books around! Very funny and a classic PG Wodehouse story line. If you are considering buying it then I suggest that you buy it strait away without another thought.

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    The reader - Jonathan Cecil - does a brilliant job - this has been a pleasure to listen to from start to finish. It is incredibly funny, beautifully crafted, and hugely entertaining. I cannot commend the book (and its reader!) enough

    "Vintage Wodehouse, mostly excellent narration"

    Anyone wanting an introduction to Jeeves and Wooster could do no better than begin right here: classic stuff, from the imperious Aunt Dahlia to the hapless school chum Fink-Nottle, this will have you laughing out loud from start to finish. Jonathan Cecil does a mostly splendid job of the narration - however, his Bertie Wooster voice changes slightly about halfway through, becoming several tones deeper and slightly closer to that of Jeeves, which is confusing and jarring. Overall, though, a wonderful performance delivered with brio.

    "Absolutely spiffing!"

    Jonathan Cecil gets five out of five stars for a flawlessly enthusiastic reading of this Jeeves & Wooster story. He even gets a Stephen Fry/Hugh Laurie thing going for those who loved the ITV miniseries from the 90's. Absolutely spiffing!

    "Classic Jeeves, but recording needs more work."

    We enjoyed this elaborate classic Jeeves story, which runs for the whole book with various plots and sub-plots. PG Wodehouse and Jonathan Cecil are on their usual top form. But why does the sound level and quality vary from take to take? Can't Chivers employ a proper sound engineer? Is it so hard these days to improve old tapes if that's the problem.

    "Fabulous Story"

    Well up to scratch for Wodehouse and entertainingly read. Only negative was the tone of the recording room markedly changing mid chapter on several occasions.
