    "Excellent Dramatization, but Stick To The Book!"

    Like the other reviewer, I am more familiar with the full-length, unabridged Jeeves readings (although I prefer Frederick Davidson to Jonathan Cecil), but I often find the abridged dramatizations to be entertaining as well.

    This dramatization of "Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves" is particularly good. I enjoy Michael Hordern's take on Jeeves but it's Richard Brier's Bertie Wooster that is the gem of this cast. Overall, it's a great listen.

    However, one small note I feel obliged to add- I know abridgements require the sacrificing of certain dialogue and small plot manuevers, etc. But why inexplicably change Major Plank's passion for rugby in the book to one for football/soccer in this version? Seems like an extra liberty taken with the original sacred Wodehouse text for no good reason. Sacrilege!

    "Great dramatization"

    Although I am used to either Jonathan Cecil playing the voices of Jeeves & Wooster (or Laurie & Fry), this dramatization really worked. Of course, like many of Wodehouse's books, there is a gaggle of characters, and it's sometimes hard to keep it all straight, but that's also part of the fun. At least, with this dramatization, it is very easy to tell who is speaking, and the acting is superb.

    "Not My Favorite"

    Unfortunately this was not one of my favorites. Many other titles I enjoyed much more. Can't really recommend.
