Critic Reviews

"You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour." (Stephen Fry)
"Jeeves and Bertie are as immortal as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, or Falstaff and Prince Hal, and, quite often, a good deal funnier." (John Mortimer, Daily Telegraph)

Jonathan Cecil is the king for P G Wodehouse..

I love all P G Wodehouse books. I find Jonathan Cecil is by far the best narrator for these books although american accents a bit iffy sometimes.

Danger to other motorway users

I nearly had to stop driving several times on a ten-hour drive to north of Inverness due to outbursts of hysterical laughter - and once there, would have had to drive around the whole of Loch Shin to finish the last story, had I not started it early enough in the journey. Brilliantly and sympathetically read, so that the stories are immediately as comforting and familiar as an old friend - and at the same time as fresh and funny as if just written. As timeless and brilliant as ever; - should be added to school curriculum as all other humour can be measured by this benchmark

Feel good, laugh out loud stories

Very easy listening, likeable characters, entertaining stories. Cecil's portrayals of Jeeves and Bertie are on point.

Good old Jeeves

Another great Jeeves audio book. Something light and enjoyable to listen to as you pass the time. Whenever I want something jolly and easy to listen to I turn to Bertie & Jeeves to lighten the day. Well read and very enjoyable. If you like to listen to old fashioned first world problems and laugh at the scrapes Bertie gets into this is for you

Jonathan Cecil narrates a perfect Bertie Wooster

Age 58, England I'm a late-comer to Jeeves & Wooster and bought these to pep up the car journey to and from work.
There are others who speak these books but Jonathan Cecil is absolutely spot on, and to this extent the spoken book is better than TV adaptations and also reading the real book.
Example.
Carry on Jeeves - Chapter 8 - Fixing it for Freddy. There's a scene where Jeeves has visited the Cinema giving him an idea to resolve a situation. Bertie is 'a trifle frosty' with him. The dialogue and emphasis is wonderfully done by Wodehouse & by Cecil narrating as he has to do both the young master and Jeeves.
10/10
Beautifully written gentle humour taking one back to a nicer place.

Very good (sir).

Tremendous fun. The not very bright Bertie Wooster is very likable in his upper class foppish antics. And Jeeves is, well Jeeves. Not like any other literary character. An absolutely delightful audiobook.

Jonathan Cecil reads Bertie as the upper class twit that he is, but still in a way that you can't help but love him. And Cecil's narration as Jeeves is nothing short of fantastic. Dry, correct and very true to my vision of the perfect Gentleman's Gentleman.

A pure delight !

The trouble with a lot of audiobooks is that they simply have the wrong type of voice for the narration of the particular book or the narrator simply can't narrate the story properly. The world of Bertie and Jeeves is a long past world of hereditary and decidedly, white, Anglo - Saxon entitlement and privilege written large .This is not a world of meritocracy and the unwashed masses, but the small world of the well heeled and socially well connected, English upper classes pre World War I / the early 20th century. This was a world of cheap, plentiful and economically vulnerable domestic servants, large country houses, lots of money and plenty of time for mindless idleness, socialising and partying amongst themselves. The narrator, Jonathan Cecil, comes from the same English upper class background as Bertie and also went to Oxford. He is therefore, perfectly able to get into Bertie's mindset and convincingly narrate the story and vividly portray all the other protagonists, but at all times with his tongue firmly in cheek ! This was a complete delight and joy to listen to and Jonathan Cecil's narration brings to life to P.G. Wodehouse's very English, mischievous, but worldly naive, school boy humour of a bygone age. Highly recommended.

My funy bone wasn't tickled

To my surprise I did not find these stories as funny or entertaining as I expected. I had enjoyed the 1960s series with Ian Carmichael and Denis Price and also the the reincarnation in the early 80s with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. Maybe it is the zeitgeist of the present time but over--privileged fools and scoundrels getting away with their japes reminds me too much of the present UK government to be funny.

The narrator is excellent.

Silver spoons of a bygone era


Great reviews and well justified. Johnathon Cecil’s accents are exquisite.

It was a dash good romp through some rummy stories, full of gaiety and mirth.

Bertie is a loveable imbecile who without Jeeves his spiffing gentleman’s man, would never be able to put one foot in front of the other. Not sure how mankind continued during this era if it were not for the likes of Jeeves.

Although I have Mr Cecils voice in my ear, I still see Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry throughout these very funny short stories.

Wonderfully Narrated

I usually prefer full cast recordings but the narrator is brilliant in bringing different characters to life.
