P.G. Wodehouse Witty Wodehouses�s best-loved creation is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the charming nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector.
Newsweek says "they are at their best in
The Code of the Woosters." This installment involves Gussie Fink-Nottle, the soupey Madeline Bassett, old Pop Bassett, the unscrupulous Stiffy Byng, the Rev. H.P. ("Stinker") Pinker, an eighteenth-century cow-creamer, and a liberal dose of the imperious Aunt Dahlia. There you have it: jolly good fun and grins galore! Jeeves once more to the rescue!
P.G. Wodehouse This hilarious installment of the inimitable manservant Jeeves and his twit of an employer, Bertie Wooster, is one of the best stories written by the master of the pen, prank, and pun. When Bertie Wooster goes to stay with his Aunt Dahlia at Brinkley Court and finds himself engaged to the imperious Lady Florence Craye, disaster threatens from all sides.
While Florence tries to cultivate his mind, her former fiancé, hefty ex-policeman Stilton Cheesewright, threatens to beat his body to a pulp, and her new admirer, the bleating poet Percy Gorringe, tries to borrow a thousand pounds. To cap it all, there's a jewelry heist and Bertie has incurred the disapproval of Jeeves by growing a moustache. All in all, a classic Wodehouse farce.
P.G. Wodehouse Jonathan Cecil, described as having “one of the best-loved voices in audiobooks” by the P. G. Wodehouse Society, narrates this collection of brilliantly entertaining stories featuring Jeeves and Wooster, including: "Jeeves and the Impending Doom", "Jeeves and the Kid Clementina", "The Inferiority Complex of Old Sippy", "The Love That Purifies", "Jeeves and the Yule-Tide Spirit", "Jeeves and the Old School Chum", "Jeeves and the Song of Songs", "Indian Summer of an Uncle", "Episode of the Dog McIntosh", "The Ordeal of Young Tuppy", and "The Spot of Art."
P.G. Wodehouse Bertie Wooster is in trouble again as his lovesick pal, Bingo Little, falls in love with every girl he lays eyes on. The real problem starts when Bingo decides to marry one of the girls, and he enlists Bertie's help. Luckily for Bertie, Jeeves once again comes to the rescue!
P.G. Wodehouse 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".
P.G. Wodehouse A new Jeeves audiobook is cause for celebration, especially when the stories are not available in print. This hilarious installment of the inimitable manservant Jeeves and his twit of an employer, Bertie Wooster, includes the earliest stories written by the master of the pen, prank, and pun. The stories are woven together with original material performed by Martin Jarvis.
Three of the stories, "Absent Treatment", "Rallying Round Old George", and "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good", are from the out-of-print My Man Jeeves (published 1919). The other two stories are from Carry On, Jeeves (published 1925): "Fixing It for Freddie" and "Bertie Changes His Mind". Each is told in its entirety.
P.G. Wodehouse Bertie Wooster, the dim-witted aristocrat with a heart of gold, had best avoid Bumpleigh Hall, but he pays a visit and soon is embroiled in a host of calamitous mishaps. Uncle Percy accuses him of burning down a bungalow; "Stilton" Cheesewright, betrothed to Bertie's ex-fiancée, barely controls his jealous rage; and Boko and Nobby blackmail Bertie into donning Stilton's stolen police uniform. Fortunately, Bertie's imperturbable valet, Jeeves, is nearby to perform a rescue.
Jonathan Cecil brilliantly captures the characters and overall hilarity.
P.G. Wodehouse Bertie Wooster's newfound enthusiasm for the banjolele results in his eviction from his apartment and, to his outrage, having to take notice from his hitherto devoted manservant, Jeeves. Repairing to the country with his banjolele and new valet, Brinkley, Bertie soon finds himself in no shortage of trouble. A visit to an American yacht ends with him locked in a stateroom by a prospective father-in-law. Bertie escapes to his cottage only to find an intoxicated Brinkley, who chases Bertie with a carving knife into his bedroom, then sets the cottage ablaze. Only Jeeves, brilliant Jeeves, can set Bertie's world aright.
