Publisher's Summary

Bertie Wooster, the dim-witted aristocrat with a heart of gold, had best avoid Bumpleigh Hall, but he pays a visit and soon is embroiled in a host of calamitous mishaps. Uncle Percy accuses him of burning down a bungalow; "Stilton" Cheesewright, betrothed to Bertie's ex-fiancée, barely controls his jealous rage; and Boko and Nobby blackmail Bertie into donning Stilton's stolen police uniform. Fortunately, Bertie's imperturbable valet, Jeeves, is nearby to perform a rescue.

Jonathan Cecil brilliantly captures the characters and overall hilarity.

Critic Reviews

"Here are the zany misadventures of foggy-minded aristocrat Bertie Wooster and his sharp-witted valet, Jeeves. It's hard to improve on this treasure, but Jonathan Cecil does it with an impeccable, wildly funny narration." (AudioFile)

A Pleasure to listen...

This audio version of Jeeves in the Morning (Unabridged) is simply a pleasure to listen to.

P.G. Wodehouse's writing style full of his usual wit and comedy. There is no one quite like him for imagery, and humour.

Once again, Bertie Wooster gets into trouble from all sorts of directions, and once again, Jeeves comes to the rescue.

Jonathan Cecil is absolutely BRILLIANT in his reading of this classic.

Jonathan Cecil is now one of my favourite audio talents. His voice is pleasant and versatile. His rendition of each separate character in the book is very clear and consistent. One feels like one is listening to a radio-play, presented by several actors, rather than just by the one person.

I truly appreciate this series of P.G. Wodehouse audio books. They are so engaging.

One of PG's best

Jonathan Cecil is by far and away the best narrator for the Bertie and Jeeves stories. He captures the diverse group of characters (Stilton, Florence, and the rest of the familiar group) to perfection.

I loved every minute of it!

If you could sum up Jeeves in the Morning in three words, what would they be?

Witty, delightful, fun!

What other book might you compare Jeeves in the Morning to and why?

"Three Men and a Dog" has the fast, witty dialogue that is in this book. It is set in Victorian England rather than the twenties, but the same sort of carefree, upper class characters are present.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Jeeves...don't leave home without him!

Any additional comments?

Jonathan Cecil did an amazing job reading this book! His voices were great and very distinct. I would buy an audio book JUST because he is the reader!

One of Wodehouse's best!

By the time he wrote this chapter in the lives of Jeeves and Wooster, their characters were well developed. In this book they make decisions that are believable yet a little more complex than we have seen before. Still laugh out loud funny, though. Classic!

Filled with Wonderful Belly Laughing Moments.

Jonathan Cecile does the very best vocals for both Jeeves and Wooster. What a treat it is to hear his performance, at times drunk and always silly with style.

An entertaining story wonderfully brought alive by the impressive skill of the narrator. I will certainly reread.
