    "Good ending to a"

    I suppose I shouldn't short Cecil a star, because his narration is quite acceptable. I just prefer Sir Martin Jarvis as Bertie and Jeeves. This last collection in a series of three (The Inimitable Jeeves, Carry On Jeeves and this volume) is, I feel, the best and a good note on which to end this listening of P. G. Wodehouse. Jeeves, as usual, comes out on top. A very enjoyable listen after a nerve jangling, horrifying Swedish number I won't go into.

    "Always a gem"

    I have never gotten tired of the Jeeves and Wooster books. Mr. Wodehouse' turn of phrase is as impeccable as it is funny. Mr. Cecil's ability to narrate is top drawer!

    "delightful"

    Wodehouse's playful use of language makes these light and comedic, yet slightly mischievous stories pure entertainment! Fantastic narration of Jeeves & Wooster -. Johnathan Cecil does it best!

    "One of the best"

    I feel like anyone aspiring to a career in comedy or comedy writing would do well to listen to the adventures of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves over and over again. Nothing I've read has ever made me laugh so loudly and consistently as this series. Jonathan Cecil is perfect at what he does and makes the experience even better. Unless you are a complete cynic, or just dead inside...you'll be sure to love this book!

    "A pure joy! Wodehouse & Cecil are both phenomenal!"

    The richness of the language, memorable charachters and entertaining storytelling of P.G. Wodehouse come to life to stimulate the old knob, by the wonderful reading and the various voices of Jonathan Cecil, who must be one of the best narrators of all time! I will henceforth rummage through the audio library with due eagerness in order to find more, more, more! By both of these chappies!

    "Solid."

    Almost as good as watching Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. But more portable, of course. Great narrator, did Wodehouse justice.

    "Far better than the TV series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Very Good Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    Having enjoyed the TV series Jeeves and Wooster I thought the books would fill in some details. The books are far better than the TV version, which is understand let there is only so much on the TV screen. This leaves your imagination open. The audio version vs print, it's one person interpretation of the characters, which is good, but I would say it is equal to the print version as the listener still has an opportunity to develop the visual in their mind.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Has to be Jeeves!

    "Typical comic genius"

    The Jeeves and Wooster books are, probably, the funniest stories ever written. You read (or listen), you laugh, and you don't regret laughing afterwards. The fact that the plots usually follow the same general formula doesn't rate.

    There are several narrators who have recorded themselves reading the Jeeves stories, but Jonathan Cecil is, without a doubt, the real stuff. He is the best. The characters
    and language come to life. Enjoy!
