Right Ho, Jeeves is considered by many to be P. G. Wodehouse's finest comic novel. Many of the Jeeves and Wooster regulars are quickly embroiled in the extraordinary goings-on at Brinkley Court. These include Bertie's formidable aunt Dahlia; Uncle Tom, "who always looked a bit like a pterodactyl with a secret sorrow"; Gussie Fink-Nottle, newt lover and teetotaler; Madeline Bassett, who feels that the stars are God's daisy chain; not to mention Anatole, the hotheaded Provencal chef. Bertie Wooster arrives in the two-seater with the laudable intention of doing a spot of matchmaking, feeling that Jeeves has lost his spark. Chaos ensues. Right Ho, Jeeves, published in 1933, is narrated by Greg Wagland.

A Very Fine Reading of Wodehouse's Best Novel
Right Ho, Jeeves is arguably the best of P.G. Wodehouse's many Jeeves and Bertie novels, and Greg Wagland's performance is delightful. He seems thoroughly familiar with the text and achieves just the sort of light, breezy, conversational tone that Wodehouse's humour requires. Mr. Wagland's voice characterization is perhaps not as strong as Jonathan Cecil's or Martin Jarvis' (it is difficult, for example, to distinguish his Gussie from his Bertie), but in every other respect this is a great reading.
