Publisher's Summary

A new Jeeves audiobook is cause for celebration, especially when the stories are not available in print. This hilarious installment of the inimitable manservant Jeeves and his twit of an employer, Bertie Wooster, includes the earliest stories written by the master of the pen, prank, and pun. The stories are woven together with original material performed by Martin Jarvis.

Three of the stories, "Absent Treatment", "Rallying Round Old George", and "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good", are from the out-of-print My Man Jeeves (published 1919). The other two stories are from Carry On, Jeeves (published 1925): "Fixing It for Freddie" and "Bertie Changes His Mind". Each is told in its entirety.

    "Martin Jarvis is perfect"

    The title makes the main point: Wodehouse couldn't ask for a better interpreter. Jarvis is a perfect reader for Wodehouse.

    It's important to understand what you're getting, though. There are only five stories on this audiobook. In their published versions, there is some overlap between this collection and "Carry On, Jeeves," and with a couple of exceptions Jarvis has omitted the ones that are in both.

    If you're a real Wodehouse fanatic, you'll get BOTH versions of "My Man Jeeves" that are available here. The other one, recorded by Simon Prebble, gives you a chance to hear a couple of the stories in earlier versions: in one case involving a completely different set of characters. Prebble isn't as extroverted a reader as Jarvis, but he's quite good.

    "Reggie is no Bertie"
    Any additional comments?

    The Jeeves stories were, as always, terrific. The Reginald Pepper stores, which form half the collection, are not as good. In a book titled My Man Jeeves, I was expecting, well, Jeeves.

    "Too many non-Jeeves stories"

    Martin Jarvis is great, and as a newcomer to Wodehouse I found myself really enjoying the stories of Bertie and Jeeves. I give the Jeeves stories 5 stars, but there are only 2 of them, and the other stories here feature a different character entirely: Reggie Pepper. Pepper's stories are not nearly as good, and I was sorely disappointed when I realized that there were so many of them. I suggest downloading a different book in the Jeeves series.

    "Hilarious Tales - Great Reader"

    As expected from Wodehouse these tales were hilarious, just the right blend of subtle and wry humor. I don't always like when the reader users "voices" for the different characters but in this case they were very well done and appropriate and certainly added to my enjoyment of the stories

    "Classic Wodehouse"

    Narrator was spot on. Stories were classic Wodehouse. Not all were his very best, but there were still laugh out loud moments.

    "Classic Wodehouse"
    What did you love best about My Man Jeeves?

    If you haven't experienced the "servant runs the master" genre before, this is the best author with whom to begin. Jeeves is the manservant who can do it all with style and grace.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Martin Jarvis?

    I hear a slightly deep voice in my head. I am probably ruined by Stephen Fry. But it is a fun listen.

    "Martin Jarvis, the right choice"
    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to it several times and it never fails to make me chuckle. Martin Jarvis was the perfect choice as narrator; and a good narrator is one of the main selling points for me in an audio book.

    Story
    "Good, But Not the Best"

    Listed as the first of the Jeeves & Wooster series, this book is approximately half J&W and half Reggie Pepper stories, with link vignettes in between.

    Martin Jarvis is all right, but I always found Jonathan Cecil's performance preferable, particularly in the role of Jeeves.

    Still, there are much worse adaptations out there, and as far as I know Jonathan Cecil never recorded these stories, so this is the best you're likely to get.

    "British Humor at it's Best"
    Would you listen to My Man Jeeves again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again because the humor is so great.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator's ability to change character voices.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the story of where the boy had to learn how to say kiss Freddie in order to get the girl to like Freddie again.


    Any additional comments?

    Any of the Jeeve's Books are worth listening to if you like British humor
