"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

Classic comedy read by a brilliant narrator!
Wodehouse is like no other author I have read! If I had to stretch a bit, I would compare Wodehouse's innocently oblivious rich-boy Wooster to certain Dickensian characters, but I can't compare this collection itself, to anything.
I love his rendition of Bertie Wooster! And he really is an excellent Jeeves, as well, but I must admit that I cannot read Jeeves' lines without hearing the amazing Stephen Fry's voice (from the BBC television series with Hugh Laurie as Wooster) .
I did laugh out loud at a number of parts. Wodehouse is a genius. Bertie (our narrator) is almost entirely devoid of self-awareness and the audience is laughing -at- him at least as often as it is laughing -with- him. Despite this, Bertie is a lovable character because the audience gets a sense that Bertie's utter pointlessness (no job, no ambition, way too much money) is due mostly to society's failing to ask anything more from him, rather than to his own character flaws.
If you enjoy biting satire directed at the aimless aristocracy of pre-WWII England, this is the audiobook for you!
Great narration of PG Wodehouse!
