Summary

My Man Jeeves, first published in 1919, introduced the world to affable, indolent Bertie Wooster and his precise, capable valet, Jeeves. Some of the finest examples of humorous writing found in English literature are woven around the relationship between these two men of very different classes and temperaments. Where Bertie is impetuous and feeble, Jeeves is coolheaded and poised. 

This audiobook, the first collection of Jeeves and Wooster stories, includes "Absent Treatment", "Helping Freddie", "Rallying Round Old George", "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good", "Fixing It for Freddie", and "Bertie Changes His Mind".

Wodehouse + Cecil = comic perfection

I’ve listened to several readers of Wodehouse but Jonathan Cecil is easily my favorite. If the cover art said “Read by the Author,” I wouldn’t doubt it for a second. Cecil delivers the character, tone and timing so perfectly, I would think he wrote these stories himself based on personal experience. My Man Jeeves contains some of the earliest Jeeves stories. Later novels may have more funny lines per page, but these stories are still highly quotable. Examples: “She fitted into my biggest arm-chair as if it had been built round her by someone who knew they were wearing arm-chairs tight about the hips that season.” “And so the merry party began. It was one of those jolly, happy, bread-crumbling parties where you cough twice before you speak, and then decide not to say it after all.” “What ho!” I said. “What ho!” said Motty. “What ho! What ho!” “What ho! What ho! What ho!” After that it seemed rather difficult to go on with the conversation.

Burtie and Reggie and Jeeves.

This is a collection of short stories not only from Jeeves and Wooster but also another series with Reggie P. They were all enjoyable and the narrator continues to impress with his various voices.

Witty and easy to listen to

Great performance with district voices for the two main characters. While the actual plot of some of these are pretty thin/unbelievable, it's hard not to delight in the clever use of language and witty sense of humor.

Hooray for Wodehouse

This is a wonderful early collection of Wodehouse's stories about Jeeve and Wooster and sometimes Reggie Pepper without Jeeves, which is a lot like Wooster without Jeeves.

Lots of fun.

Love OF Wodehouse, particularly when well read. Funny dialogue and situations with a vocabulary that exercises the brain.

Not a Novel

This is a collection of unrelated short stories. I could not finish it, just too stupid.
