© The Trustees of the Wodehouse Trust; (P)1992 BBC Audiobooks Ltd
Yes, the British accent and the range of voices are quite remarkable. This reader who is my favorite Bertie and Jeeves voice adds to the whole mind picture.
Only other Wodehouse books. Actually Wodehouse has just a few stories told in minor different ways and he has written over 90 books. It is a pleasure to see how he does each one.
Either you like farcical British humor that is light, intelligent and pleasant or you don't. I have read the vast majority of Wodehouse's books and in every sentence there is genius. Jonathan Cecil brings the story to life.
This whole series has always me laugh out loud - I was surprised to discover that Jonathan Cecil made the audiobooks as funny or even funnier than the printed books.
His voices are great, and his timing is very funny. I just can't imagine liking a different narrator now.
I wish the books were longer!
Wodehouse is always a delight and Jonathan Cecil is the best narrator going. Several laugh out loud moments, beautiful English that is sadly not employed anymore, and another delightful storyline where Bertie gets entangled and Jeeves helps him out.
I'm delighted to report that this installment of Wooster's adventures and mishaps are once again silly and entertaining to the last. I would recommend it to any fan of Wodehouse's style.
Many silly events were memorable - things have been made a mess of around Bertie at Totleigh Towers yet again, and he has many worries taking turns as most trying to his peace of mind, and turns to the trustee Jeeves to help him out of the soup. Some of my favorite plot points included Bertie and Pop Basset being cornered by Bartholomew, the fight between Spode and Stinker, and the follow-up knockout by Em in kitchen garden.
Expertly narrated, as always by Cecil. He manages to give life to the various loud and ridiculous characters with the many voices he adopts, some of the most notable being the gruff Spode (ever challenging for Bertie to keep up dialogue with all of those "you"s and "oh"s and the like), and Aunt Dahlia (forceful and playful with Bertie, hollering abuses good naturedly), and so many others.
