What the Critics Say

"This is a wonderful collection, so well done, I m continually amazed at how well BJ does the voices and the production is of the highest quality. The jeeves episodes are my favorites of all time, they make me laugh each time I listen to them time, which I do often. I can't recommend this collection and his work in general enough!" - Anthony G. "I have loved reading PG Wodehouse since I was a teen, and have never ever heard anyone interpret the zany hijinks and subtle sarcasm as well as BJ Harrison. There are nights I would try to fall asleep to his wonderful voice but the funny would keep me awake :) If you love the stories of Wodehouse, you will love how BJ brings them to life." - Dee "B. J. does a great job with all of the Wodehousian characters, male and female. I don't know how he does it, even mixing British and American accents when appropriate. Very entertaining and recommended to all of P. G.'s fans (which should be everbody who cares about great writing.)" - Grampaul

Don't buy this version of the wonderful Wodehouse stories

These are wonderful stories but this is the worst ever reading of them. The accent I'd ask wrong... Surely Bertie had to have an upper class London accent. And as for Jeeves, somehow his witty, ironic lines have become stiff and humourless. I love these stories and tried hard to persevere but had to abandon this recording a third of the way through. Just dreadful. Probably spoiled by the wonderful reasons by Martin Jarvis, but even without that comparison, this reading is just all wrong. Horrible.

No good to English ears

Can't tell whether the narrator is American or Scottish or what but the English accent is nowhere near right for these characters.

Why Audible can't make British performances of British books available is beyond me.
