Jonathan Cecil brilliantly captures the characters and overall hilarity.
Don't miss other titles in the Jeeves series.

"Here are the zany misadventures of foggy-minded aristocrat Bertie Wooster and his sharp-witted valet, Jeeves. It's hard to improve on this treasure, but Jonathan Cecil does it with an impeccable, wildly funny narration." (AudioFile)
This audio version of Jeeves in the Morning (Unabridged) is simply a pleasure to listen to.
P.G. Wodehouse's writing style full of his usual wit and comedy. There is no one quite like him for imagery, and humour.
Once again, Bertie Wooster gets into trouble from all sorts of directions, and once again, Jeeves comes to the rescue.
Jonathan Cecil is absolutely BRILLIANT in his reading of this classic.
Jonathan Cecil is now one of my favourite audio talents. His voice is pleasant and versatile. His rendition of each separate character in the book is very clear and consistent. One feels like one is listening to a radio-play, presented by several actors, rather than just by the one person.
I truly appreciate this series of P.G. Wodehouse audio books. They are so engaging.
Jonathan Cecil is by far and away the best narrator for the Bertie and Jeeves stories. He captures the diverse group of characters (Stilton, Florence, and the rest of the familiar group) to perfection.
Witty, delightful, fun!
"Three Men and a Dog" has the fast, witty dialogue that is in this book. It is set in Victorian England rather than the twenties, but the same sort of carefree, upper class characters are present.
I have not.
Jeeves...don't leave home without him!
Jonathan Cecil did an amazing job reading this book! His voices were great and very distinct. I would buy an audio book JUST because he is the reader!
Jonathan Cecile does the very best vocals for both Jeeves and Wooster. What a treat it is to hear his performance, at times drunk and always silly with style.
Wodehouse is a wonderful writer, always delightfully amusing. However, not all narrators are up to the job of narrating the man's humor. The late actor Jonathan Cecil does an impeccable job with the timing and voices so the listener is left to listen and enjoy.
I would recommend this to anyone. It's an incredibly funny book and I've enjoyed it in print for years. The audio version is wonderful for listening in the car.
There are many memorable moments intertwined together in a fantastically convoluted (in a good way) system of characters and events.
This is so difficult to answer since there are so many laugh-out-loud scenes. I suppose as the speed picks up towards the end, the situations become even more fascinating.
Audible sells two versions of this book, identical except for quality of the recording. Same narrator, same length, approximately the same price. I honestly don't know why Audible continues to sell the other, very inferior, book. That one goes by the title Joy in the Morning, which was the title under which I first read the physical book years ago. Check out the samples and you'll find there's no competition. Buy this one and prepare to lose yourself in Wodehouse's world.
