Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves

Fate draws Bertie back to Totleigh Towers, home of the horrifyingly drippy Madeline Bassett and the simply horrifying Watkyn "Pop" Bassett. Bertie is worried, as the only obstacle to a trip down the aisle for him and Madeline is the fact that his friend Gussie and Madeline are in love with each other.

Publisher's Summary

Fate draws Bertie back to Totleigh Towers, home of the horrifyingly drippy Madeline Bassett and the simply horrifying Watkyn "Pop" Bassett. Bertie is worried, as the only obstacle to a trip down the aisle for him and Madeline is the fact that his friend Gussie and Madeline are in love with each other. When Madeline tries to turn Gussie into a vegetarian and Gussie rebels, Bertie is panic-stricken. Add to the picture a charming cook offering Gussie forbidden treats, Stephanie Byng and her dog Bartholomew, and the nonstop rivalry between Sir Watkyn Bassett and Bertie's Uncle Tom, and Jeeves has his hands full sorting through the problems that dog Bertie's footsteps.

    Story
    "Are you a Wodehousian?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves to and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Love Wodehouse, love Jonathan Cecil"
    What did you love best about Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves?

    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.


    What does Jonathan Cecil bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voices are great, and his timing is very funny. I just can't imagine liking a different narrator now.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the books were longer!

    Story
    "Wonderful little jaunt"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cecil – was your favorite?

    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.
