Publisher's Summary

Witty Wodehouses�s best-loved creation is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the charming nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector. Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters." This installment involves Gussie Fink-Nottle, the soupey Madeline Bassett, old Pop Bassett, the unscrupulous Stiffy Byng, the Rev. H.P. ("Stinker") Pinker, an eighteenth-century cow-creamer, and a liberal dose of the imperious Aunt Dahlia. There you have it: jolly good fun and grins galore! Jeeves once more to the rescue!

    "One of the best"

    "The Code of the Woosters" is one of the best of the Jeeves and Wooster series, though of course they're all wonderful. There are whole chapters that have you crying with laughter. The narrator is perfect. He does a variety of characters absolutely flawlessly.

    "excellent and enjoyable!"

    Bernie is in trouble up to his starched white collar ! very similar to all Jeeves and Wooster adventures, but I still enjoy them. and this narrator, Jonathan Cecil is the best.

    Story
    "Classic Bertie and Jeeves"
    What did you love best about The Code of the Woosters?

    Timeless banter and terrific humour. A laugh out loud book that conjures carefree and ridiculous scenarios that easily delights.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The seamless interplay between Bertie and Jeeves builds as the story unfolds like a slow motion train wreck.

    My favourite aspect is Wooster's first person commentary. Even when he cannot recall his exact words in the heat of the action, he still paints a beautifully hyperbolic version of the situation and how a Wooster handles such contingencies.


    What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

    Very satisfying.

    If I were to suggest, using a female voice for the female characters could have enhanced some of the characters dialogue


    If you could take any character from The Code of the Woosters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Dinner with Bertie (and his man in the wings) would be a hoot, however Mr Spode's public v private conflicts could offer a different type of banter


    Any additional comments?

    Great on a plane or simply when you want to escape the ridiculousness of modern life

    "Glorious in every way"

    Perfect book. Perfect performance. One of P. G. Wodehouse's best books (which is saying something extraordinary) and Cecil gives it a fantastic performance.

    "I went far too long between Wodehouse books"
    Any additional comments?

    Who would have thought an 18th century cow creamer could be the focal of a story? You can't help but crack a smile as you sit back and enjoy the dialog brought to life by Jonathan Cecil. If you're having a bad day, P.G. Wodehouse will come to the rescue!

    I found my local library has most of the Wodehouse collection available through Overdrive so I may not be rating any more here.

    If you haven't given Wodehouse a go yet, start with this one or Right Ho, Jeeves. You won't be disappointed.

    Whether this is your first foray into the world of Jeeves and Wooster or your twentieth, you simply can't beat the combination of Jonathan Cecil and Wodehouse.

    "Good listening!"

    I listened to this on my commute to and from work and it never failed to put me in a good mood. The narrator is really good and it is hard to believe that one individual can make all these characters come alive.

    Clever and well executed. Wodehouse read by Cecil makes the books easily understood and hilarious.

    "Hard to believe it's only one person"
    If you could sum up The Code of the Woosters in three words, what would they be?

    dry smart enlightening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jeeves, of course. He is the axis around which all else turns


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cecil – was your favorite?

    Wooster; Cecil absolutely nails the flighty, superficial air of aristocratic privilege and makes him loveable in the process


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah, it was hard to shut it off!


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best audiobook productions I've ever listened to, and I'm still amazed that it was only one person reading it.
