A great introduction to Jeeves

This was my first introduction to Wodehouse and Jeeves. It was so funny that I am now downloading more. Great narration and excellent stories. One of my favorites from Audible!

Very Funny!

Wonderfully entertaining stories and excellent reading by Martin Jarvis, who creates convincingly different characters. These stories are a great way to pass some time.

Funny and Well Read

Martin Jarvis does an excellent job portraying the many characters of this charming and funny book. Very entertaining and enjoyable, especially if you're familiar with Stephen Fry's portrayal of Jeeves on BBC/PBS. The stories take place on "both sides of the pond" and will leave you chuckling. I enjoy listening to Wodehouse so much more than reading him - I sometimes miss the British humor on the written page, but Jarvis had me laughing out loud. Couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to pause. A breath of fresh air.

Martin Jarvis is a genius

Wodehouse is funny enough in print, but Jarvis is absolutely hysterical. This is as great an audiobook reading as I've ever heard.

Entertaining

An enjoyable listen. If you can relate to the writing style common to pulp fiction at the turn of the century (19th to 20th that is), and if you have a minimal tolerance for the humor of British stodginess, you'll likely love this book. Not being familiar with Wodehouse, I had naively assumed this book would be a "classic literature" type, and was all set for something in the line of Thomas Hardy or Dickens---so this was a surprise. Having admitted such, I must add that it was a most enjoyable surprise, and a nice break from the list of more serious works I've been undertaking. The reading was excellent.

Terrific series

This was my first introduction to Jeeves and Bertie Wooster and I was extremely pleased. They are a humorous pair with Jeeves in the role of straightman and Bertie as the one who needs bailing out frequently. I enjoyed Martin Jarvis portrayal of both characters and found the recording well made. An excellent place to start if you want to try a novel by PG Wodehouse!

Wonderful Fun!

Only a handful of books have made me laugh out loud, and Jeeves is right up there with the Vicar of Wakefield, Diary Of A Nobody, and Portney's Complaint for page after page of wry and clever wit. Wodehouse takes the reader on a lighthearted journey through the very British lives of Bernie and his omniscient man-servant Jeeves. Biting satires of proper society and rollicking tales of wacky family and fussy fiancees make for page-turning fun.

(I almost never comment on narrators, but this one did a superb job with the voices! "Yaaaeessss....")

Great for an humorous escape

Jeeves is great when the world has become a bit too much to take and you need to laugh a bit.

Standard Jeeves – highly amusing stories

A spot of PG Wodehouse and Jeeves is almost always good for the soul – and the funnybone :-). This particular one is actually a series of about four long stories of the Jeeves ilk, and this narrator was good. I'm not totally familiar with the shades of British accent, but this was satisfying.
For those who are not familiar with the PG Wodehouse Jeeves series, Jeeves is a gentlemen's gentleman for Bertie Wooster, a British man of leisure who is really kind of, somewhat stupid and has quite a knack of getting himself involved in ridiculous situations, either because of his stupidity or his need to make friends and make people happy. Jeeves is usually his ticket out.

Absolutely hilarious, Don't ya know?

Where does Carry On, Jeeves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely one of my favourites, I've listened to each story at least twice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bertie AND Jeeves, can't have one without the other.

Any additional comments?

Jarvis is the best narrator I have heard thus far. I had trouble switching to Hugh Laurie and Steven Fry's interpretation after hearing Jarvis, but now I love them both. I love that Jarvis gives Bertie an older yet still immature and boyish character. He switches between characters so smoothly you can't believe it's him narrating on his own!

Jarvis is the ultimate Jeeves and Wooster

A superb set of short stories from P.G. Wodehouse featuring the famous characters of Jeeves and Wooster. Martin Jarvis is probably the best narrator of the J&W books I have come across. Excellent lazy Sunday listening, highly recommended.

A Humourous Classic

I must confess to being rather a fan of PG Wodehouse but this is the first book by this author I felt warranted a 5* review.
The voices of all the colourful characters revolving around the hapless Bertie Woooster are brought to life by Martin Jarvis' wonderful narration. His voices tell the tales of how the poor misunderstood Bertie continues to be unwittingly involved in several sticky situatuions. Each awkward moment is beautifully and satisfactorily resolved by his man the "Inimitable Jeeves"
The stories in this set sail along leaving you wanting more.

Timeless Classic

PG Wodehouse writes beautifully with unique and clever wit and Martin Jarvis has interpreted it wonferfully with an excellent repetoire of voices. The humour is timeless and the use of language is stunning. Prepare to laugh heartily!

Jeeves at his best

I read P.G.Wodehouse whenever I feel down and in need of some kind of comfort ,so it was with pleasure I discovered I could listen to my favourite Jeeves stories. I chose with a slight hesitancy in case I would be disappointed but this was not to be the case. Martin Jarvis reads the story so well that I was again transported to that perfect Wodehouse world.

Good

Great narration, and I really enjoyed the book. I did prefer 'Leave it to Psmith' also by PG Wodehouse.

Excellent book but...

this was a great book but i don't think it was unabridged. it had the chapters in a different order and missed out a few sentences in every chapter. that's according to my copy anyway. but i'm not saying against the book
