Publisher's Summary

When the news breaks that Madeline Bassett is engaged to Gussie Fink-Nottle, Bertie's relief is intense. But when Madeline attempts to turn Gussie vegetarian, Bertie's instinct for self-preservation sends him with the steadfast Jeeves on another uproariously funny mission to Sir Watkyn Bassett's residence, Totleigh Towers.

    Story
    "Jonathan Cecil - a superb Wodehouse narator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    His performance is sublime in telling the many tales or Bertie Wooster, and his faithful savior Jeeves. His portrayal of the characters and the narrative far outshines that of my own, as perceived by my own reading of the text.


    What other book might you compare Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves to, and why?

    The Code of the Woosters. Probably the best of all the Jeeves stories, and for this one I would recommend the one available here, as performed by Martin Jarvis. I don't think there is a Jonathan Cecil version available, though I might be wrong.


    What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

    His ability to convey a vast array of diverse characters.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Always amusing, and engrossing. These particular performances, being shorter than most complete audio books, can be consumed easily within one sitting. Had many a journey become most enjoyable, with such things to accompany me.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope, other than Wodehouse is great fun, easy to absorb, and enjoy. As read by Jonathan Cecil in this case, even more so.

    "Fantastic"

    Pure Wodehouse. Very funny. I love Wodehouse's era, it is ultra idyllic and allows nothing uncomfortable in. There is nothing heavy in these books, they are just lightweight fun. If you want a book to lift your spirits or to have a good laugh this is it.

    "Wodehouse in mid-season form"
    What made the experience of listening to Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves the most enjoyable?

    The wonderful world of Wodehouse and his eccentric characters is brought to life by the excellent performance of Jonathan Cecil, whose range of voices and characterisation both male and female is remarkable. It is a delight to be taken back to the carefree lives of the idle rich between the wars and be immersed in the exploits of the hapless Bertie Wooster and his running battles with his formidable aunts.

    "Very poor sound quality"

    I give the book 2 star because of the poor sound quality. I would prefer better sound instead of small download size.
