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.

Critic reviews

"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)

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

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.

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.

Delightful Wodehouse, ideal narrator

Usual delightful Wodehouse capers, narrator Jonathon Cecil is ideal - understated to just the right degree (not all Wodehouse narrators are as good)

Very well read. Shame about the quality.

Fantastically well read. You couldn't wish for better. It's a shame such a good reader was cursed with the work experience boy recording him with a series of cheap dictaphones on a windy hillside.

Perfect Wodehouse!

Wonderful combination of PGW at his masterful best, delivered without a false note in the reading.
Escapist heaven.

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!

Brilliantly written & read. Shoddily recorded

Jonathan Cecil does a sterling job narrating this brilliant book. Needs a spot of remastering to do it justice though - get the butler on it Audible!

Only Jonathan Cecil for me!

Another corker! Jonathan Cecil makes it as usual. Wodehouse’s genius is on full show in the hands of this superlative narrator.

Classic humour, bitty audio

Brilliantly funny tale with excellently dry narration but it seems to be a mix of different recordings for some reason.
