  • Jeeves and the Mating Season

    Story

    Bertie Wooster's friend Gussie Fink-Nottle is sentenced to 14 days for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square. Bertie is worried that Gussie's fiancé Madeline will be angry because she has a distressing habit of turning her attentions to Bertie when her fiancé upsets her. Bertie has the bright idea of impersonating Gussie, and showing up at Deverill Hall. The situation is wonderfully comical when Gussie shows up, posing as Bertie. Only Jeeves, arriving in his own disguise, can sort out this mess.

    Esquire says: "perfect comic timing"
    "Another favorite from PG Wodehouse"

    Would you listen to Jeeves and the Mating Season again? Why?

    I listen to these audible books again and again. Each time I get another bon mot from Mr. Wodehouse and I love his turn of phrase. His quiet humor makes these Jeeves stories so fun.


    What other book might you compare Jeeves and the Mating Season to and why?

    Any of the other Wodehouse Jeeves books are just as good. I listen to them all many times.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Although I have not heard Jonathan Cecil on other books, he would be the first I would ask if I were casting accents, multiple voices, great nuance needed. He is a 10+.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Jeeves helps orchestrate another good save for the always in the soup, Wooster, in this great romp in an English country manor.


    Any additional comments?

    I do recommend this audible book.

  • West with the Night

    West with the Night is the story of a remarkable woman molded and shaped by many things: the African jungle, a certain dog, horses, airplanes, friendships with white men and black. There is no life, no story quite like it.

    Michael Moore says: "Top Notch Writing; Riveting Stories"
    "Romantic and adventuresome"
    Overall

    I have read some parts of this book years ago. It was totally refreshed by Julie Harris' great reading of the work. Harris' voice captures the nuances and drama and style of the work, and the prose is refreshing. Had Beryl Markham lived today, she would be a great addition to the world with her ability to see events and people from another level entirely and her talent with words. She is certainly on my dinner list of people I'd like to meet.
