Jeeves in the Offing

The Times has announced, much to Bertie's astonishment, the news of his engagement to the beautiful Bobbie Wickham. But worse is to come....Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer has gone missing; Kipper Herring has libelled his and Bertie's former headmaster; leading British psychiatrist Sir Roderick Glossop is posing as a butler; and Aunt Dahlia's masterly French chef, Anatole, is once again becoming a pawn in a terrible power struggle.

Publisher's Summary

The Times has announced, much to Bertie's astonishment, the news of his engagement to the beautiful Bobbie Wickham. But worse is to come....Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer has gone missing; Kipper Herring has libelled his and Bertie's former headmaster; leading British psychiatrist Sir Roderick Glossop is posing as a butler; and Aunt Dahlia's masterly French chef, Anatole, is once again becoming a pawn in a terrible power struggle. By a rare stroke of genius, Bertie finds a solution; he recalls Jeeves from his annual holiday, and the incomparable manservant sorts everybody out in his usual imperturbable style.

    "Awful audio quality, good book"

    Sounds like it was originally recorded on a grammophone, converted to tape, and then converted to audible format. There were passages that were literally undecipherable even in format 4. The book itself is quite good, feeling like a true Jeeves novel, with an appropriate laughable ending. But find another recording and save your poor ears.

    "Terrible naration"

    As always Jeeves and Bertie continue to entertain BUT the naration was almost intolerable. It was like hearing chalk on a blackboard. I was tempted several times to give up listening but suffered through it because I enjoy the characters so much.

    "No review needed!"
    What did you like most about Jeeves in the Offing?

    You either 'get' Wodehouse and love him as I do or you don't.


    What does Ian Carmichael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Ian Carmichael and Jonathan Cecil are the only two narrators who can do justice to Jeeves and Wooster. Sorry Martin Jarvis - love your William but Wooster : NO, NO, NO.

    "Good story, not a favourite narrator"
    What three words best describe Ian Carmichael’s performance?

    At first, I was a little put off by the fact that the narrator talks so quickly. Several times I had to rewind a bit and listen to something one or two times more before I could make out what it was. I got over that as I got used to the speed though. Only, the more I got used to the speed with which this is narrated, the more I started noticing the fact that the narrator seems to think that Bertie has a speech defect! Often when Bertie is saying something, he sounds like he's nearly stuttering and this doesn't seem to happen with any of the other characters. I found it quite annoying, as I'm pretty certain there has been no mention before of Bertie having this sort of trouble.
