Summary

Right Ho, Jeeves sees Bertie Wooster blithely attempting to assume the role of Jeeves himself as a matters-of-the-heart adviser. Very unwise: from Gussie Fink-Nottle's romance with Madeline Bassett, to Tuppy Glossop and his stop/go engagement to Angela Travers, the young master succeeds only in making a bally mess of everyone's love-lives.

Toss into the mixing-bowl hot-headed chef Anatole, perpetually resigning from, returning to and re-resigning from the employ of Bertie's long-suffering Aunt Dahlia; and, shimmering over all, the lateral-thinking genius that is Jeeves.

Here is more from the wondrously engaging world of Wodehouse, where laughter and inspired idiocy whirl together in warm-hearted celebration of great comic writing. Enjoy? Right ho!

Great fun!

I downloaded this book after reading an article about the narrator Martin Jarvis. He is brilliant and brings the book alive! All a lot of fun!

Of all the various iterations of Jeeves & Wooster, I think Martin Jarvis is the best. This is a joy to listen to.

abridged!

this appears to be heavily abridged. very jarring if you're familiar with the material, whole sentences are just missing. I want my money back.

Martin Jarvis is as perfect as ever

Not up there with the Inimitable Jeeves - my measure for all Wodehouse - this story has so many classic Wodehouse tropes I felt like I'd heard it before but it doesn't matter. For me absolutely nobody compares to Martin Jarvis as a Wodehouse reader, he wrings more out of the words on the page than anyone else by a mile. His Jeeves is the absolute Gold Standard for Jeeves's. I started listening to another version of this book read by somebody else that I withdrew from my local library but I gave up and bought this version because I just kept imagining how much better Mr Jarvises rendition of the text would be. It wasn't Frederick Davidson but it's a good opportunity to put in a dig at one of the worst audio book readers of all time, I can never get past his phoney ridiculous accent that gets in the way of the text. All FD books should come with a caution: "Warning this book is read by Frederick Davidson". I'm only bitter because my local library contains many Wodehouse books but they are read by FD and therefore to me they are unlistenable.

PS Audible when on earth are you giving us the 1.15 and 1.35 speed options? It's completely absurd you haven't done so. I think I had this option when I was using the Android version of the app. I mean what on earth is the problem?
