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.

Format: Paperback
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 wish the entry from the previous reviewer had been available when I ordered the book. The lines on the page are nearly twice as long as is normal for fiction. No fun to read, in spite of Wodehouse. I'm returning the book right now.

As there are many editions for sale on Amazon, it is worth noting the specifics: The publisher of the particular paperback edition is Lits Books and EBooks, an imprint of International Aliance [sic!] Pro-Publishing. I have also seen comments that the edition from CreateSpace is no good.

(Similar to the spelling of Aliance, the ships on the cover of the CreateSpace edition are a giveaway that there is something amiss: there is not a single boat in the Right Ho, Jeeves story. Do not look for a maritime element.)

(BTW, what's going on here, did the authorial rights or so expire on Right Ho, Jeeves? Everybody & his brother seem to be publishing the book. Google "Alba & Tromm" and you'll find still another (obscure) publisher of RHJ. Join the club in chasing an easy buck, never mind the quality of the publication.)

By Anashuya Kakati on July 29, 2014
Format: Paperback
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".

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never seen a book like this before. It is in an awkward 8X10 format that is hard to hold, shelve or read. But worse, there is absolutely not publishing information--copyright, publisher's name, nothing. It's like a bootleg tape, and that cuases me to wonder how faithful it is to the text. I think Amazon should be ashamed to offer something like this, especially without a warning to the purchaser about what they will receive.

I know this is a sign of the times, but just for a heads-up: this edition (ships on cover) is print-on-demand, with an odd oversized format. Also, the format is unpleasant for reading, more like a manuscript than an actual book.
