Jeeves, not only a tireless servant to the feckless Bertie Wooster, is the saviour of a good many other individuals as well. The list is long: Bingo Little has cause to be grateful to Jeeves in the affair of the marooned cabinet minister; Sippy Sipperley, when he is persecuted by his former headmaster; Tuppy Glossop, in his foolhardy pursuit of Cora Bellinger the opera singer; not to mention Miss Dalgeish the dog-girl; Bertie's fat Uncle George when he brushes with the lower classes; even the dog McIntosh is returned to the dreaded Aunt Agatha through Jeeves' good offices.

This is a great audiobook to listen to when you're not in the mood for a full-length novel, and like to spend time with a large cast of Wodehouse characters both old and new.
One of the other reviewers found that this version was a little 'muffled'; it's not noticeably so, and of course Jonathan Cecil is always a reliable narrator of Wodehouse material.
Whether you're new to Wodehouse, or a die-hard fan, this is a good choice.
The stories as usual are a riot, but the sound is somewhat muffled. If you compare the two versions of "The Inimitable Jeeves" here you may see what I mean: the BBC version (like this one) is slightly muffled, the other is clear as a bell. Both (like this one) are narrated by Jonathan Cecil, who is top-notch.
