This title includes not only the entire audiobook of Right Ho, Jeeves, but also all of the P.G. Wodehouse titles in the current Classic Tales library. It also includes a Jeeves short story only available in the collection: "Extricating Young Gussie". The complete running time is over 15 hours. All titles have been remastered, and have never sounded better!

  • Frustrating and distracting, the confused accents!

These are wonderful stories but this is the worst ever reading of them. The accent I'd ask wrong... Surely Bertie had to have an upper class London accent. And as for Jeeves, somehow his witty, ironic lines have become stiff and humourless. I love these stories and tried hard to persevere but had to abandon this recording a third of the way through. Just dreadful. Probably spoiled by the wonderful reasons by Martin Jarvis, but even without that comparison, this reading is just all wrong. Horrible.
