This book is a gem, as are all the Jeeves stories. For pure escapism, visit this idyllic world of dry martinis, charming dimwits and rabidly meddling aunts and arranged as always by the omniscient puppetmaster- the unflappable genius- the valet, Jeeves. As always, Jeeves deftly steers his young master Bertie Wooster in and out of marital, legal and familial pitfalls to a happy ending.
A first class reading: very in character (except that it's hard to do women's voices if you're a man). Nevertheless, a jolly good time had by this listener. It's a bit slow to get into, but by the second or third chapter the droll humor will shine through. If you like the televised British versions of Jeeves and Wooster's madcap comedy (done by "Dr. House") you'll love this too. If you've never heard a voiced version of these hilarious "calamities", you're in for a treat.
P.G. Wodehouse is good for whatever ails you--funny and witty and silly and smart. We all could use a Jeeves in our lives.
Very funny! My first Wodenhouse book.
The era Wodehouse was writing about may be past but the characters are easily recognizable even today - just talk to you family and neighbors and look in the mirror.
Another great Jeeves. The perfect butler and his hapless "master."
Late Wodehouse, more or less a replay of scenarios he'd written earlier, but they wear reasonably well.
