Such fun and a truly great narrator

One of the best Jeeves novels, which makes it one of the best humor fiction works ever written. Not my first listen and certainly not my last. Jonathan Cecil is far and away the best narrator of the Wodehouse novels. He spoils me for other readers...

There is a limit

What may cause Jeeves to continuously leave his position? Marvelous performance. I truly enjoy this book. It is so quirky.

Excellent

This is an excellent book which is very well adapted into an audiobook by the narrator. It is a classic and I recommend it highly.

Solid Wodehouse

For anyone who enjoys Wodehouse's style this audiobook is going to be good fun, with the narrator as an experienced as Cecil, you'll have good fun with this title. The stories as always need careful attention paid to them with the sheer number of characters involved so maybe re-listening would be a good idea if you're struggling.

Overall very enjoyable

Excellant romp through a cracking tale

In middle age I'm embarrassed to say that I've only just got round to these. The spoken book is ideal for travel to and from work. The narrator Jonathan Cecil deserves special praise here. The books have multiple characters speaking, often at the same time, and his rendition of Jeeves, Bertie, and aged Aunt, the girlfriend and Old Stoker are all superb.

Mr Cecil brings the book to life and his clipped tones really helped. There were points where I actually laughed aloud at the story and the mental images so skillfully brought to life.

Wodehouse would approve of such a gifted narrator.

the best of the best of Wodehouse. thanks Richard


Jeeves and Bertie at their finest. The language and the laughs excel.
Imperative listening. Just wonderful word play.

Wodehouse / Cecil combo scores 10/10 again

If you could sum up Thank You, Jeeves in three words, what would they be?

Top quality entertainment

What did you like best about this story?

Wodehouse's writing is possibly the best I have ever read (or listened to, in this case)

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

Cecil gives a fantastic performance as Bertie Wooster, although actually his subtle portrayal of the other characters is just as good.

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

Yes, and I have re-listened to it several times.

A good yarn well told, don't you know

More whimsical Wodehouse brought to life by the talented Mr Cecil. Better sound quality than other titles in this series, but still not perfect.A single plot that centres on Jeeves and Wooster which I prefer to the preceding short stories.

Great fun but problematic!

A bedroom door slamming farce from PG W - bags of fun as silly-arse Wooster heads to Chuffnell Regis. Does feature a band of “negro-misnstrels” and gags about blacking up so very much of its time!

Racism undermines its skilled construction.

It's racist, no two ways about it. Written with Wodehouse's usual eloquence and narrated excellently, but the casual racism detracts.

Contains several instances of the N word

Contains several instances of the N word, which could easily have been changed without losing anything from the story. Disappointing.
