    "Good listen!"
    Would you listen to My Man Jeeves again? Why?

    I listened to this in my car and on my Kindle Fire at home. I think listening to it was definitely better than reading it myself.


    If you could take any character from My Man Jeeves out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I'd definitely take Jeeves out to dinner. He's in the know about everything.

    Story
    "I want this man for myself"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Man Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    The audiobook of "My Man Jeeves" was better than the print version because Martin Jarvis does a fantastic job voicing each of the characters. In general, I prefer audiobooks to written books only when I am already familiar with the series. I like forming my own opinion and voices for the characters.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have focused on Bertie and Jeeves in all the stories. I did not care for the other character, whose name I have forgotten, and his attempts to be clever.


    Have you listened to any of Martin Jarvis???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to several of Martin Jarvis' other performances, specifically his voice work with Sir Terry Pratchett and the Discworld series. This performance was wonderful as always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not have any extreme reaction to this book. I felt this book was an introduction to a specific set of characters and world.

    Story
    "If You Like This Kind of Thing..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    PG Wodehouse is a famous author, so I don't know what could be changed. He is amusing if you don't think too much about the foreshadowing. However by the third story I had to stop listening, because I had already figured out what was going to happen, and wasn't really interested any more.


    Has My Man Jeeves turned you off from other books in this genre?

    In general, I like British humour.


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

    I don't believe I have listened to him before. He did a good job of distinguishing characters.Caricatures even, since that's what they were. :-DCheareo, pip pip!


    Could you see My Man Jeeves being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not sure I care.

    "Arrogant reading"

    Jarvis makes up transitions between the stories. They are lousy imitations of Wodehouse and ruined the book for me. I wonder if he even reads the stories as they were written. It's arrogant.
