Thoroughly enjoyed this book and its narration. It is classic Wodehouse and will bring a smile to listeners. "Not for this Bertram!"
Absolutely. Let's face it, the only reason why you'd get this audiobook would be because of the narration. And boy does Mr. Jarvis nail the narration! I would rate this as highly as Fry and Laurie's depiction of Jeeves and Wooster.
Let me say Wooster for a change. Jeeves gets too much love anyway.
Martin Jarvis is amazing. And yes, even though that is a cliched word, I really don't think anything else can describe how absolutely perfect his narration is.
Jarvis does justice to the comic genius of Wodehouse. It's as if Wodehouse was narrating this!
I prefer Jonathan Cecil's narration when it comes to Wodehouse, but that's not to say Martin Jarvis isn't great. If you love the Jeeves and Wooster books, this is a highly entertaining listen.
Brought the book to life.
There was an excellent 'prison moment'...
He had so many wonderful, absolutely spot-on voices to match the characters.
Let's have some fun, dontcha know?
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
At first you think why is this a classic and then the short stories work their magic and you are enjoying each sentence unfold into a delightful excursion into human folly and nature. A light entertainment without to much simplicity, this book has it. I will be listening to the other books in the series from time to time for some fun and laughs. Nice light entertainment.
I was quickly immersed in the story, forgetting that a single narrator was providing all the voices. The voices were well chosen for the characters.
No, not really. It was light & entertaining.
The most interesting was the infallibility of Jeeves. The least interesting? Bertie's reminisces.
No scene in particular, just Jeeves & his unique ideas.
Yes, a follow up book would be appropriate. Why? there is always a need for light reading.Why not? no reason at all.
No, not really, we enjoyed it whilst travelling in the car.
I enjoyed listening to this much more than reading it, perhaps because the performance encourages me to get into the spirit of the wise servant and his twit of a "master." Even so, it makes me so happy for the Declaration of Independence!
I do enjoy the way he voices Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, but he doesn't do the women's voices right at all. They all sound about eighty seven years old. While I understand that he is, in fact, a man, he does voices for most of the characters, and his women character voices are always dreadful.
