Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

So many audio recordings of Wodehouse books are available that only the most prosperous libraries can afford to buy all of them. However, when it comes to Carry On Jeeves, the question is not whether to buy it but which edition to purchase. Any library making a pretense of having a Wodehouse audio collection must have this book. First published in 1925, it collects ten Jeeves stories, including the one in which Jeeves first enters Bertie Wooster's life. It also contains the only story in the entire series narrated by Jeeves himself. Choosing between this excellent Blackstone edition read by Frederick Davidson and the equally fine 1991 Chivers edition read by Jonathan Cecil will be difficult. Cecil's and Davidson's deliciously animated narrations are sufficiently different to make each a special treat. (Libraries might consider attaching small crowbars to this package to help patrons pry out its cassettes.)--R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA

From AudioFile

The fashionable young airhead Bertie Wooster delighted Jazz-Age readers with his reminiscences of his imperturbable gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves. In this collection Wooster gives us eight hilarious tales in which the stoic butler gets Bertie and pals out of one scrape or another. Oh--I'm sorry!--it's Martin Jarvis, PRETENDING to be Bertie Wooster! I keep forgetting, so remarkably does the actor inhabit the flighty, inconsequential and risible character. In lesser hands, the Wodehouse shorts could become tedious, lined up as they are. A high-energy performance such as Jarvis's might soon reach the law of diminishing returns. But so inventive, so utterly charming, is actor-director Jarvis that he transcends the limitation of his material. (And it ain't bad material to begin with!) Y.R.Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE (/ˈwʊdhaʊs/; 15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Born in Guildford, the son of a British magistrate based in Hong Kong, Wodehouse spent happy teenage years at Dulwich College, to which he remained devoted all his life. After leaving school he was employed by a bank but disliked the work and turned to writing in his spare time. His early novels were mostly school stories, but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular characters who became familiar to the public over the years. They include the feather-brained Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet, Jeeves; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith; the feeble-minded Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the loquacious Oldest Member, with stories about golf; and the equally loquacious Mr Mulliner, with tall tales on subjects ranging from bibulous bishops to megalomaniac movie moguls.

Although most of Wodehouse's fiction is set in England, he spent much of his life in the US and used New York and Hollywood as settings for some of his novels and short stories. During and after the First World War, together with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, he wrote a series of Broadway musical comedies that were an important part of the development of the American musical. He began the 1930s writing for MGM in Hollywood. In a 1931 interview, his naïve revelations of incompetence and extravagance at Hollywood studios caused a furore. In the same decade, his literary career reached a new peak.

In 1934 Wodehouse moved to France for tax reasons; in 1940 he was taken prisoner at Le Touquet by the invading Germans and interned for nearly a year. After his release he made six broadcasts from German radio in Berlin to the US, which had not yet entered the war. The talks were comic and apolitical, but his broadcasting over enemy radio prompted anger and strident controversy in Britain, and a threat of prosecution. Wodehouse never returned to England. From 1947 until his death he lived in the US, taking dual British-American citizenship in 1955. He was a prolific writer throughout his life, publishing more than ninety books, forty plays, two hundred short stories and other writings between 1902 and 1974. He died in 1975, at the age of 93, in Southampton, New York.

Wodehouse worked extensively on his books, sometimes having two or more in preparation simultaneously. He would take up to two years to build a plot and write a scenario of about thirty thousand words. After the scenario was complete he would write the story. Early in his career he would produce a novel in about three months, but he slowed in old age to around six months. He used a mixture of Edwardian slang, quotations from and allusions to numerous poets, and several literary techniques to produce a prose style that has been compared with comic poetry and musical comedy. Some critics of Wodehouse have considered his work flippant, but among his fans are former British prime ministers and many of his fellow writers.

1.0 out of 5 stars book falling apart at first reading
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on May 19, 2022
The book looked fine, with a simple, stylish typographical appearance (it was quite reasonably priced).
However, whatever the price, a new book should not begin to come apart when page 11 was reached during the first reading. The pages have separated, in small sections, from each other right through to the end of the text pages. It looks as if they hadn't been secured properly, in the perfect binding under the spine, when the book was produced.
Having been very happy with all of the books I have previously purchased through yourselves, I assumed that any new ones you were advertising would be of the same quality.
I look forward to hearing from yourselves regarding the facility to return the book, a refund or, preferably, a better, well produced, new replacement.
I am extremely disappointed.
Regards
Bryn Barber
