Publisher's Summary

All the zany Wodehouse characters are here: Bertie, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, and Aunt Dahlia. All the humorous chaos of misunderstandings, puns, and pranks are present: someone must hand out prizes at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School, a lovers' spat finds Bertie engaged to Madeline, and a hunger strike causes the cook to give notice. The inevitable rescue by Jeeves, brilliantly conceived and executed, averts disaster and saves nitwit Bertie Wooster.

Acclaimed actor Jonathan Cecil brings comic flair to this rollicking tale by the man The Times (London) called "a brilliantly funny writer".

Don't miss other titles in the Jeeves series.

What the Critics Say

"Jonathan Cecil reads the story with a fine ear for comic wordplay and absurdity, giving fitting caricatured voices to the likes of Fink-Nottle and Glossop. He gives Wooster's first-person narrative the right balance, letting the bumbling hero misread situations as needed. The chaos builds toward a crescendo of levity that will be a favorite among Wodehouse fans." (AudioFile)

    "The Classic Bertie and Jeeves"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Right Ho, Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the accented version of this small book gives the sense of listening to Bertie. I have read every Wodehouse book but listening to Johnathan Cecil, the reader, has the feel for the real Bertie and the real Jeeves.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Wodehouse fan, this is the classic of all time. Can we all move to this delightful world of major crisis when on reflection, there is no crisis. All gregarious much to do about nothing. Wodehouse admits that he has only one book and he changes it around a bit. It works for me.

    "Sheer delight"

    Wodehouse's best, read by his best interpreter. The prize scene is one of the peaks of English comic writing and Cecil raises it even higher.

    "Absolute Wodehouse brilliance"

    Hilarious reading of a comedy classic! Among the best of the Jeeves books, full of slapstick, wit and plot twists - if you are unfamiliar with Woodhouse, this is a great place to start. Jonathan Cecil's reading adds lively sparkle to the absurdist ramblings of the not-so-sharp aristocrat, Bertie Wooster.

    I listen to audiobooks at work, and it's a rather subdued environment. This book keeps me choking back laughter until tears stream from my eyes - even with repeat listens.

    Caveat: if you're not a fan of British humor and send-ups of the Downtown Abbey set, this is not for you. But I bet that if you've gone far enough down the rabbit hole to visit this book's page, "Right Ho, Jeeves" is just your thing.

    "I'm a new member of the Wodehouse camp"
    Where does Right Ho, Jeeves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was a wonderful introduction to PG Wodehouse. My hour and a half commute would fly by and I found myself with a big smile as I listened to Jonathan Cecil bring all the characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Right Ho, Jeeves?

    There are so many, it's hard to choose just one. The interaction with Tuppy n the garden and the bike ride brought big smiles.


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

    I came very close to bypassing Wodehouse all together with a sour performance on My Man Jeeves with another narrator. Thankfully, I found this one and became an instant fan of Wodehouse and Jonathan Cecil.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I just didn't have that much time set aside.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are on the fence about giving Wodehouse a go, this is a great book to start with and a wonderful narrator. The narrator can make or break a book. Consider me a new Wodehousian. I'm looking forward to many more smiles on my daily commute.

    "Right,Ho!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Right Ho, Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    Right Ho, Jeeves ??? Wodehouse
    4 stars
    Audio version performed by Jonathan Cecil

    Bertie Wooster and his man Jeeves travel to Brinkley Court to sort out the romantic travails of Madeline and Gussie, Angela and Tuppy.
    They attend an historic prize giving at Market Snodsbury Grammar School and assist Aunt Dahlia in retaining the services of the culinary genius, Anatole. It???s absurd, hilarious and full of wonderful word play. The audio performance by Jonathan Cecil is absolutely ???spot on.???

    Wooster and Jeeves make me laugh out loud. This was the perfect light-hearted read to place between more serious subjects.

    "one of the best!"

    another gem from Wodehouse and the only Wodehouse reader worth hearing, Jonathan Cecil! No more need be said, what?

    You must listen to this. The reader is wonderfully talented, the writing is breathtakingly witty, and the story entertaining start to finish.

    "Right Ho, Cecil"

    Once again a splendid and enjoyable listen! The Jeeves series are a great joy to listen to. Both from a storytelling point of view, as well as from a linguistic artistry point of view. P.G. Wodehouse is simply genious in his use of the English language, and the narration in this book by Jonathan Cecil is just phenomenal, giving the book the justice it deserves. This was my third or fourth Jeeves book I listened to. They have all been good so far. This was however the first one that was a complete novel, with the same story from start to finish. If you are new to Jeeves, I suggest you also start with the collections of short stories, which began the series. They are easy to listen to, as they only take an hour of your attention at a time. This story was more elaborate and required more of the listener.

    "fell asleep "

    I fell asleep during the first chapter. Was not quite impressed and I'm not sure that the story is a style I enjoy. Others may.
