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 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!

4.0 out of 5 stars How did I NOT know? July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite author! May 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now, I am a Wodehouse fan June 23, 2013
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny stories February 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short stories, not all of whom feature Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, most following a formula with a young man or two and a young lady and love interest(s) and complication(s). The ones with Jeeves are by far the best and funniest. Best ready intermittently, as while waiting in a doctor's office or in an airport

3.0 out of 5 stars Typos August 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Guess I'm not a Jeeves Fan November 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
As I noted in my title, I guess I'm not a Jeeves fan. Prior to trying to read this Wodehouse book ("Right Ho, Jeeves"), I'd read the first five Jeeves short stories:

1. Extricating Young Gussie in The Man With Two Left Feet
2. Leave It to Jeeves
3. Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest
4. Jeeves and the Hard-boiled Egg
5. The Aunt and the Sluggard

The last four short stories are in My Man Jeeves.

I enjoyed the first short story, but the other four left me flat. "Right Ho, Jeeves" is Wodehouse's second Jeeves novel. Unfortunately, I find it even worse than those previous four short stories. Where those stories were just linear, obvious results of Bertie (and others) doing silly things and reaping the whirlwind, Bertie's actions in this novel are so constantly obvious and embarrassing that the book became too painful to read: I had to stop a little over a third of the way through. I guess I'll give up on Jeeves and try to find more Wodehouse books like his excellent A Damsel in Distress or his very good Piccadilly Jim, Something New, or even Uneasy Money. I rate this book at an Not Very Good 2 stars out of 5.

2.0 out of 5 stars I second that: Not a readable version September 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.)

This book would probably make a very funny screenplay but I found it tedious reading. It would probably be amusing if you were to see and hear the conversations and situations.
