Critic Reviews

"The delightfully air-headed wastrel, Bertie Wooster, narrates a number of his adventures with his imperturbable gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves. Jonathan Cecil impersonates Wooster with aplomb." (AudioFile)

laugh out loud

i've read a handful of the jeeves/wooster books, a couple of the blandings adventures, plus a miscellaneous story or two, and it may just be possible that mr. woodhouse only has a dozen or so story lines and it soesn't matter a bit. he is fantastic.

this is my first 'listen' to one of his books and it went quite well (although people look at you out of the corners of their respective eyes when you burst out laughing in public places for no apparent reason, dash it all!)

the reader was good, maybe very good. occasionally he mixed a characer or two, and his impression of an american accent is, well, enlightening.

at some point i think i am just going to go to the very beginning of wodehouse's work and read them straight through.

as usual, format two worked fine for me.

cheers.

Applause all around

Upon finding out that Audible has Jeeves and Wooster recording, I jumped at the opportunity to download one. I was not disappointed in the least. I am enjoying this recording very much and I look forward to getting other ones. My only complaint is finding them in order so you can go from recording to recording. But what I have found so far, has brought me much laughter and relaxation.

Good recording with minor flaws

This set of charming, short stories mostly relate to the Jeeves and Bertie efforts to help Bertie's friend Bingo Little out of the soup. The writing is breezy and hilarious, typical P.G. Wodehouse, with a chatty, conversational style that suits the air-headed but well-meaning Bertie Wooster.

The narration is good and solid, with some very nice voice acting between characters. The reader makes a great Bertie. (The American accent, as mentioned by another reviewer, really is an experience.)

It downloads as one solid block, which is annoying given that you have to search to get to the chapter you want. Also, there is an oddly metallic quality to the recording, and the volume between sections wavers. However, unless you're an audiophile, this isn't too much of a distraction once you get used to it.

All in all a good recording, and worth purchasing for any Wodehouse fan.

I dare you not to love it.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Inimitable Jeeves to be better than the print version?

Equally good

What other book might you compare The Inimitable Jeeves to and why?

Any of the Jeeves and Wooster novels

What about Jonathan Cecil’s performance did you like?

Everything. He brought the characters to life.

If you could rename The Inimitable Jeeves, what would you call it?

Why mess with perfection?

humorous break

I love the Jeeves series as a break from some of the heavier reading i am used to. Inimitable delivered but I enjoyed the topics of the few others from the series that I have read more. I will continue the series.

Jolly Good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Inimitable Jeeves ??? Woodhouse <br/>Audio version performed by Jonathan Cecil<br/>4 stars<br/>This is the second Jeeves book in the series. Each chapter is like a short story organized around recurring characters and returning several times to the romances of Bingo Little. Bertie takes a brief trip to New York City which allows Woodhouse to direct some wonderful word play and satire at Americans. Jonathan Cecil provides six hours of entertaining ear candy.<br/>

One of the best

This collection has some of my favorite Jeeves and Bertie stories, including my very favorite, "The Metropolitan Touch." The denouement of that one always leaves me laughing out loud.

Truly inimitable

Great listen, so silly and entertaining, lots of chuckles! Jeeves has his hands full managing Bertie, Bingo, Aunt Agatha and the rest!
