The narrator ( Mr Chantrey) is apparently ignorant of Chris Dolley's series and the famous "Jeeves and Wooster" stories in print and film that inspired them. Here, Reeve's droll responses (half the comedy) are absolutely ruined by voicing him as a cockney in spite of everything previously written about the character. Indeed, all of the returning characters are flubbed. Please consider rerecording this book - Mr. Volley deserves better.

Never have I heard voices more out of tune with the characters. Reggie sounds like a dockworker instead of upper-class. Reeves has a cockney accent! And the pronunciations are horrible - unlike anything I've heard in either british or american english. At first it seems like the narrator is intentionally mispronouncing words for comedic effect, but then you begin to believe that he is so poorly educated that he actually does not know how the words should be pronounced. In all, the narration is a distraction from a fairly good story, instead of an enhancement to it.
