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.

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.

    "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!

    Well narrated and fun to listen. Fun characters, good escapist stuff.
