Editorial Reviews

Review

"Acclaimed actor Jonathan Cecil brings comic flair to Right Ho, Jeeves, a rollicking tale." -- Savannah Jones, SirReadalot.org, December 8, 2004

"Cecil does a splendid job of reproducing the voice of all the characters." -- Rainbo Electronic Reviews, March 2005

"Cecil reads the story with a fine ear for comic wordplay and absurdity… will be a favorite among Wodehouse fans." --AudioFile, February 2005

About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

I love Bertie and I especially love him when he is having a conversation with Jeeves. Though I love the way his mind works in general and can't get enough of him. My only problem is (and this prob. has to do with the era) that people dont say what they are thinking and every small matter becomes a thing. If everyone just said things straight off then this book would not exist bc they would have no problems. Though I have to say this story was to funny. How did I NOT know about the Jeeves series? This was my 1st, and I look forward to the many more. I recommend reading this book in between two heavy books, as a comic relief. Enjoy.

I suppose this was my fifth time reading this masterpiece of comedy and it still gets me laughing out loud. Let me share a story about the first time I read this 30 years ago. Riding the subway home in Toronto at rush hour when i hit the passages about Gussie giving out prizes at Market Snodsbury. It got me laughing so hard that I had tears streaming down my cheeks and had to put the book down to compose myself. Each time I opened it and got another two paragraphs deeper the same thing happened. After the fourth time in a matter of five minutes pretty much everyone on the packed train was looking at me with many smiles and stifled giggles. As I was trying to catch my breath I held the book up and panned it around so everyone could read the jacket cover. Some knowing nods of approval and some taking note. Nothing was said. A very fond memory indeed!

This book was my introduction to Sir P. G. Wodehouse's works, which are centered around the world of Bertie Wooster and his valet, Jeeves. I found it to be a comical read, esp. in the chapter of the speech (ambiguity here to not give any spoilers). The vocabulary in it is quite elegant and intelligent. I like that.

Because I read this book, I will be taking to the library for more from this series.

I don't know how I got this far in life without ever having heard of P.G.Wodehouse. His use of simile and metaphor is beyond compare. His characters and situations are hilarious, but also demonstrate Wodehouse's deep understanding of human nature. I have to read his books with a pencil in one hand so I can mark my favorite passages and find them easily and reread them. His writing makes me laugh out loud and marvel at his mastery.

Another Wodehouse for a laugh. Loved the way the story unfolded. The characters were a hoot. I am on the quest for my next jocular moment.

There were quite a few typos in this version which minimized my enjoyment of reading it. I find it disruptive to have a break in the words making sense so I have to figure out what it should be before I get back into the story.

My very first Wodehouse! My partner of 8 years has been pestering me since the beginning to pick one up. He swore I would be addicted.

So my verdict: If ever you want to taste the English language in it's simple form, pick this up.The writing is delicious at best and the storyline goofy but not over the top.

I chuckle every time I read of the 'frenemy-ial' relationship portrayed between the master and his batman. Bertie wants to asserts his dominance on Jeeves but never seems to know how to go about it. And Jeeves though vocally docile is Such a rebel at heart.

The only downside to reading PGW is that you end up incorporating him in your everyday speech. Unfortunately in today's age, unless you are Benedict Cummerbatch it sounds way too pretentious. Just imagine calling your drunk friends "ones with inflamed cerebral condition" or when you want to smoke "I will pop out for a tortured gasper".
