The second instalment of this wonderful collection of short stories sees Bertie Wooster in the proverbial soup as usual and Jeeves invariably shimmering to the rescue. Love, comic reunions and errant Uncles are all on the agenda, plus bucket loads of laughter. Where would Wooster be without his infinitely brainy valet? Where would audio listeners be without Wodehouse's sparkling comic invention?

Martin Jarvis is a perfect narrator for Jeeves stories. So how's about Volume 1? If we could get volume 1 of Very Good Jeeves and volume 1 of The Inimitable Jeeves (which also seems to be missing), we'd have pretty much a complete set of Jeeves short stories from a single outstanding narrator. (A note to Wodehouse fans who didn't know this yet, though it's unlikely anyone would be one and not already know the other: if you combine Jarvis's My Man Jeeves and Jarvis's Carry On, Jeeves, you'll have the full set of tales from the print version of Carry On, Jeeves, though not in their original order.)
What a winning combination: the hilarious antics of Bertie Wooster and his "gentleman's gentleman," Jeeves,delightfully narrated by Martin Jarvis, who was born to the task.
I attempted to watch a snippet or two of the old motion picture with Stephen Fry. Though said Mr Fry would undoubtedly be an excellent selection for just such a role, he should first receive the full benefit of Mr Jarvis' correspondence course.
