In this collection the brilliant reader of THE THIRD MAN and A NIGHT TO REMEMEBR brings us eight unabridged tales of the lovable air-head, Bertie Wooster and his Personal Gentleman's Gentleman, Jeeves. It begins with JEEVES TAKES CHARGE, recounting how Jeeves came to be in Berties service and continues through eight of the stories from CARRY ON JEEVES. Martin Jarvis, who played Jeeves in the musical BY JEEVES, is clearly the man for the job. His more than capable abilities make this one of the finest one man, books on tape ever. He weaves through the characters with amazing vocal dexterity making this the closest thing to a full cast dramatization that you're likely to find. Of course the BBC did many of the Jeeves and Wooster tales in the seventies (each one a gem as well) but I never heard them do any of the stories in this collection. If you enjoy Wodehouse, Jeeves and Wooster, quality comedy or books on tape in general you will not be disappointed with this collection.

Wodehouse and his wonderful Jeeves, along with John Mortimer's Rumpole, are among the greatest characters to come out of British literature, and especially British humor. Hysterically funny in the classic sarcasm of the British pen, I would recommend Jeeves to anyone, and the more the merrier; terrible pun completely intended!
