Publisher's Summary

All the zany Wodehouse characters are here: Bertie, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, and Aunt Dahlia.

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.

    "Cecil's readings of Wodehouse are always brilliant"
    Where does Right Ho, Jeeves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As Bertie might say, this one stands alone.


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

    The passage where Gussie Finknottle delivers the school prizes.


    What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

    His voices and interpretation are spot on.


    If you could rename Right Ho, Jeeves, what would you call it?

    Right Ho, Cecil.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Mediocre performance"

    This is one of the great “Bertie and Jeeves” novels by Wodehouse, but the production does not do it justice. The narrator often uses the wrong voices for the character who is suposed to be talking. Sometimes he corrects it part-way through the line, sometime he charges on. I am disappointed they did not do another take and correct these errors. They are pretty obvious, and they detract much from the story. On a personal preference, I thought the characterizations missed the mark but others might think they are accurate. I much preferred the audio files once available that were narrated by Frederick Davidson. They were read accurately and, to me, the voices were right on the mark.

    To summarize, the story is 5 stars, the production is 1 star for voice and direction, and 5 stars for technical quality. Overall, a 3.
