Publisher's Summary

Witty Wodehouses�s best-loved creation is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the charming nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector. Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters." This installment involves Gussie Fink-Nottle, the soupey Madeline Bassett, old Pop Bassett, the unscrupulous Stiffy Byng, the Rev. H.P. ("Stinker") Pinker, an eighteenth-century cow-creamer, and a liberal dose of the imperious Aunt Dahlia. There you have it: jolly good fun and grins galore! Jeeves once more to the rescue!

©1938, 1966 Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, held by Trustees of the Wodehouse Estate; (P)1990, 2000 Chivers Audio Books

    "Glorious in every way"

    Perfect book. Perfect performance. One of P. G. Wodehouse's best books (which is saying something extraordinary) and Cecil gives it a fantastic performance.

    "I went far too long between Wodehouse books"
    Any additional comments?

    Who would have thought an 18th century cow creamer could be the focal of a story? You can't help but crack a smile as you sit back and enjoy the dialog brought to life by Jonathan Cecil. If you're having a bad day, P.G. Wodehouse will come to the rescue!

    I found my local library has most of the Wodehouse collection available through Overdrive so I may not be rating any more here.

    If you haven't given Wodehouse a go yet, start with this one or Right Ho, Jeeves. You won't be disappointed.

    "Perfection from start to finish"

    Whether this is your first foray into the world of Jeeves and Wooster or your twentieth, you simply can't beat the combination of Jonathan Cecil and Wodehouse.

    "Good listening!"

    I listened to this on my commute to and from work and it never failed to put me in a good mood. The narrator is really good and it is hard to believe that one individual can make all these characters come alive.

    Clever and well executed. Wodehouse read by Cecil makes the books easily understood and hilarious.

    "Hard to believe it's only one person"
    If you could sum up The Code of the Woosters in three words, what would they be?

    dry smart enlightening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jeeves, of course. He is the axis around which all else turns


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

    Wooster; Cecil absolutely nails the flighty, superficial air of aristocratic privilege and makes him loveable in the process


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

    Yeah, it was hard to shut it off!


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best audiobook productions I've ever listened to, and I'm still amazed that it was only one person reading it.

    "Justice in Hand"

    The characters developed by Wodehouse in the earlier novels are here again in fine form. Aunt Dahlia is particularly fetching and in full voice thanks to the wonderful reading.

    "pleasantly fluffy"
    What did you like best about this story?

    What I like best, about any of the Jeeves and Wooster books, is the formula. Young wealthy people with no real problems and no common sense, toddle about in mansions, or steam-liners, or gentleman's clubs in lust, greed, or general confusion. Then Jeeves fixes everything. It is all fluff.

    Story
    "One of my favorite"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Code of the Woosters to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. I've read all of Wodehouse's works and, although they are great in book form, they are even better in audiobook format. This is especially true with Jonathan Cecil as narrator. His character presentations are impeccable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Code of the Woosters?

    As is the case in many Wodehouse books it takes a little while to set everything up. Then, once all the pieces are in place, it is one riotous encounter after another. I won't ruin any of the specific moments, but even after having read the book and knowing generally what was coming, I had tears pouring out of my eyes I was laughing so hard at times!


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

    Aunt Dahlia is classic, but they are all phenomenal.


    Any additional comments?

    The Code of the Woosters and its immediate predecessor Right Ho, Jeeves are two of my absolute favorite of Wodehouse.

    Story
    "Marvelous British farce!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I thought it enormously clever and lighthearted. I even suggested to my musician son and daughter-in-law that they look into turning the thing into a community theater play, a la "Lend me a Tenor."


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Code of the Woosters?

    Like tripping over one's own feet, the noble code of the Woosters kept getting our hero into one pickle after another.


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

    I have not heard him before, but will look for other books he narrates.


    If you could take any character from The Code of the Woosters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Aunt Dalia. What an audacious yet loving rascal she is!


    Any additional comments?

    Fun listen.
