    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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.
