Summary

First published in serialised form in The Strand magazine between 1933-34, Thank You, Jeeves is a novel that lends itself to an audiobook, with its diverse range of dotty voices all relayed magnificently by master Wodehouse reader Martin Jarvis.

No longer in master Bertie Wooster’s employ, Jeeves is engaged with a new employer, Lord "Chuffy" Chuffnell, an old friend of Bertie’s. True to form, thus follows a supreme comedy of errors which is guaranteed to raise many a chortle, as Wooster travels to one of Chuffy’s cottages in Dorset to carry on his banjolele practice in (dubious) peace.

Unacceptable language for these times.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

There is a subplot with minstrel band that uses language which is just not acceptable these days I love Martin Jarvis but I don't know why the language used didn't stick in his throat.

What could P. G. Wodehouse have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The attitudes in the book were no doubt acceptable at the time, and the book is otherwise up to PGW's high standard.

Which character – as performed by Martin Jarvis – was your favourite?

Jeeves, always.

What character would you cut from Thank You, Jeeves?

The minstrel band subplot.

Pitch Perfect Performance

What about Martin Jarvis’s performance did you like?

Wodehouse's prose is hilarious - but Jarvis' performance adds comic timing that my own brain and imagination can't come up with. Somehow he manages to make the pauses before lines that I know by heart full of comic anticipation. Someone should create a Wodehouse narrating category for royal laureates and then dedicate it to Martin Jarvis.

Jeeves

Excellent! ! As usual a great, funny story and absolutely excellent narration by Martin Jarvis. Jarvis is one of my favorite narrators and he is the best narrator for the Bertie and Jeeves stories.

Awesome performance by Martin Jarvis.

Fantastic book, but the reading by Martin Jarvis adds so much.

I've listened to this one over and over again both for the writing and the performance.
