Publisher's Summary

Thank You, Jeeves is the first novel to feature the incomparable valet Jeeves and his hapless charge Bertie Wooster, although within page, Jeeves quits on account of Bertie's disastrous banjo-playing. In high dudgeon, Bertie disappears to the country as a guest of his chum Lord "Chuffy" Chuffnell, who naturally employs the services of the recently resigned Jeeves. Along the way, we meet a memorable cast of characters including Bertie's ex-fiancee Pauline, her formidable father, and the eminet looney-doctor Sir Roderick Glossop. When Chuffy falls in love with Pauline, chaos ensues...until Jeeves step in to save the day.

Great Story, Just Not This Recording

This is a typical Wodehouse book; very humorous. However, the recording must be old, as the voice reading the text is muffled and difficult to understand.

Good Story, but narrater

Would you try another book from P. G. Wodehouse and/or Nicolas Coster?

I would definitely get another PG Wodehouse, but never another Nicolas Coster.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

As with most Wodehouse, the descriptions the main character uses to paint a picture of people and situation are hysterically funny. But you'd never know it from the performance here.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nicolas Coster?

No one- he's terrible.

Any additional comments?

Jonathan Cecil is the best narrator for Wodehouse books.

delightful!

Bertie and Wooster are such fun. cheers for Wodehouse. i was particularly impressed with the single narrator taking on ALL the character parts, each distinctive and completely in character. excellent listen.

Who doesn't love Jeeves?

Okay, so maybe the narrator sounded a bit old to be narrating this, but it was still very enjoyable. You can't beat P.G. Wodehouse for a light and fun read.

Poor reading

The reader is too old to read Bertie and Jeeves. His voice is craggy and he makes no effort at voice characterization. And he mumbles.

Great book with decent narration. Well worth it

Excellent book, P.G. Wodehouse made my day a lot brighter with this book. Another great book about Jeeves and Wooster. The only reason I gave it four and not five stars was the narrator. While his English was impeccable - and British - I had some problems distinguishing between the different characters which reduced the quality of the book somewhat in my mind. Even so however, this book is definitely worth your money, or a credit if you wish to spend that. :-)

Good Wodehouse, poor reader

This is the usual delightful Wooster comedy, but the reading is inferior to many of the other audiobooks available via Audible. Go for the titles read by Jonathan Cecil instead. This reader hardly seems to know the characters or to have worked out distinctive voices for them, and that's absolutely essential to fully enjoy Wodehouse.

Lots of fun

This is a very enjoyable old-fashioned romantic comedy, if you like the dry British humor. Jeeves' complicated way of expressing ideas is always amusing, as is his ingenuity in making things come out right for his wooly-headed superiors.

Great book, poor narration

The book itself is wonderful, as Wodehouse normally is, but the reader, Nicolas Coster, sounds like he's about to expire at any moment. It's also hard to distinquish between characters at times.
