The title makes the main point: Wodehouse couldn't ask for a better interpreter. Jarvis is a perfect reader for Wodehouse.
It's important to understand what you're getting, though. There are only five stories on this audiobook. In their published versions, there is some overlap between this collection and "Carry On, Jeeves," and with a couple of exceptions Jarvis has omitted the ones that are in both.
If you're a real Wodehouse fanatic, you'll get BOTH versions of "My Man Jeeves" that are available here. The other one, recorded by Simon Prebble, gives you a chance to hear a couple of the stories in earlier versions: in one case involving a completely different set of characters. Prebble isn't as extroverted a reader as Jarvis, but he's quite good.

The Jeeves stories were, as always, terrific. The Reginald Pepper stores, which form half the collection, are not as good. In a book titled My Man Jeeves, I was expecting, well, Jeeves.
