All the zany Wodehouse characters are here: Bertie, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, and Aunt Dahlia. All the humorous chaos of misunderstandings, puns, and pranks are present: someone must hand out prizes at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School, a lovers' spat finds Bertie engaged to Madeline, and a hunger strike causes the cook to give notice. The inevitable rescue by Jeeves, brilliantly conceived and executed, averts disaster and saves nitwit Bertie Wooster.Acclaimed actor Jonathan Cecil brings comic flair to this rollicking tale by the man The Times (London) called "a brilliantly funny writer".More
"Jonathan Cecil reads the story with a fine ear for comic wordplay and absurdity, giving fitting caricatured voices to the likes of Fink-Nottle and Glossop. He gives Wooster's first-person narrative the right balance, letting the bumbling hero misread situations as needed. The chaos builds toward a crescendo of levity that will be a favorite among Wodehouse fans." (AudioFile)

The Classic Bertie and Jeeves
Yes, the accented version of this small book gives the sense of listening to Bertie. I have read every Wodehouse book but listening to Johnathan Cecil, the reader, has the feel for the real Bertie and the real Jeeves.
If you are a Wodehouse fan, this is the classic of all time. Can we all move to this delightful world of major crisis when on reflection, there is no crisis. All gregarious much to do about nothing. Wodehouse admits that he has only one book and he changes it around a bit. It works for me.
