Publisher's Summary

Carry On Jeeves once again follows the humorous everyday lives of Bertie Wooster and his gentleman's gentleman Jeeves. As the helpful soul that he is, Bertie continues to try to come to the aid of his friends whenever they're in need, and although his intentions are always for the best nothing ever seems to work out quite right for anyone until Jeeves steps in and invariably saves the day.
When his friends are in trouble Bertie is always the first to step forward and offer his assistance, but try as he might he just can't seem to be as much use as his man Jeeves who can always come up with a plan that will ensure a positive outcome for everyone, especially himself!
The first story in this book heralds the arrival of Jeeves into Bertie’s employment, as a replacement for his previous valet who was of the light fingered variety. It also contains a story from Jeeves's perspective, a unique insight into the mind of the man who most of Bertie's friends wish was the one picking out their socks in the morning.

The PERFECT voice for this book!

We all have that one friend who is always willing to lend a helping hand no matter how small or large the task. In the early 1900s in London, Bertram "Bertie" Wooster is a gentleman who is searching for just that sort of friend, which he finds in his new servant Jeeves. An amalgam of characters emerge with different personalities, modes of speech, and ways of interacting, all stemming from the brilliant reading of this audio version by David McCallion. His depiction of the characters and their dialogues breathe wittiness and humor into the words when appropriate, as he also takes on a serious tone when the text calls for it. 

Reading about and listening to the various situations that Bertie finds himself in makes me wish I had a friend like Jeeves all to my own! It seems that there is no problem too great for Jeeves to solve, and just like Bertie's friends, it is easy to understand how important Jeeve's presence is in everyone's life. Despite the twists and turns of the plot, McCallion's constant changing of his inflection and voice help to bring clarity to who is speaking, making for an amazing listening experience to this very funny tale!

So Great!!!!!!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Carry On, Jeeves to be better than the print version?

I have not yet read the print version but I am looking forward to reading it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The whole thing is simply incredible so far! I am still in the middle of listening to it but I was so excited about it I decided to leave a review before I was finished.

What does David McCallion bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is one of my favorite narrators so far. He's funny, eloquent, and clear! Fabulous!

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


Any additional comments?

I can't wait to listen to more Jeeves!
