Summary

Here, in this audio enhanced recording, the master of 20th century English humor, P. G. Wodehouse, presents two classics of the genre: My Man Jeeves and Right Ho, Jeeves

The perpetually befuddled Bertie Wooster and his knight-in-shining-tuxedo Jeeves have long been hailed as the greatest literary creations of P. G. Wodehouse, the most popular English humorist in history.

Enjoy these two classic Wodehouse stories in one complete set!

Part of this is not Jeeves and Wooster.

At least three chapters do not feature Jeeves and Wooster at all. I found the narrator's voice a little grating after a while.

Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins?

Nothing worse than Americans/Canadians putting on bad English accents, with the wrong 'poarsh emphaahsis' and imagined 'Lorng' vowels. This is an excellent, witty, well-written book, narrated excruciatingly (thus, for me, ruined), due to a basic misunderstanding of how the English speak english. I offer the following for Mr. Theis, should he wish to appeal to english speakers, or those who would like to hear the book in the form that Wodehouse meant it: Dahlia=Day-lee-a (not Daahr-lee-a); Ass=Ass (not Arse); Cross=Kross (not Kroarse); Horror=Horrer, (not Whoare-er); Boadicea=Bo-du-see-a (not Booh-Deesh-ah); Accede=Ack-cede (not ass-seed); Cesarewitch=Se-zar-uh-witch (not Seezer-witch); Antibes=On-teeb/An-teeb (not Ann-tibbeeze); Ashtray=Ash-tray (not Arsh-tray); Dulwich=Dull-itch (not Dul-Which); etc

Fabulous collection

This is the complete novel My Man Jeeves and the collection of short stories Right Ho Jeeves. Both are stellar entertainment and I believe that the narrator, Kevin Theis, has realized his true purpose in life - destined to give voice to these fantastic and hilarious stories. You will find yourself speaking in Edwardian slang! Love these. More, please.

Doubly Delightful

Two Wodehouses (Wodehice? Wodehae?) in one. What could be better? Well, three, but let’s not get greedy.

“Right Ho, Jeeves” was released earlier this year as a standalone, and I reviewed it then, so you can pop over there and read … Eh? What say? … Oh, well, if you put it that way … Here ’tis:
The way Gussie feels about newts? (Which, if you don’t know already, you will happily discover before many pages have flown by.) That’s how I feel about Wodehouse, and the Jeeves stories are the cream of the C, the tip of the T, the knees of the B. I’ve read them on paper, seen them on PBS, and heard them by other readers. This version is particularly enjoyable, thanks to narrator Kevin Theis, who is having a contagiously good time. Bertie and Jeeves proved delightful companions on my morning constitutionals, putting an extra bounce in my step and generating yelps of laughter that entertained, or at least puzzled, several handsful of passersby. Sparkling musical bridges could have been better only by being longer. I’ll be coming back to this audiobook whenever my sagging spirits need a lift.

Despite the title, Bertie and Jeeves appear in only half of the “My Man Jeeves” stories. The others feature the meddlesome, well-intentioned self-admitted chump Reggie Pepper, and to my own surprise I liked them even better—especially “Helping Freddie.”

LOL, dontcha know.
