reader uses little variety

Would you try another book from P. G. Wodehouse and/or Flo Gibson?

In Jeeves stories the reader must be willing to adopt very different voices for Jeeves and Wooster. Ms Gibson does not do this. Her style is to read uniformly and fast, with repeated tics and inflections largely unrelated to the plot. I heard her read one Henry James story in which her style was tolerable, because the characters' personalities were not dissimilar. But with Wodehouse, her manner does not work. I would not buy this audio again. I'd look for other readers for Wodehouse.

Perfection, as always with Wodehouse

Not sure I loved the narrator, but the short stories are hysterical. Bertie is himself in every way
