Reviews

(4 stars)

I don't know if I would have enjoyed the book as much had it not been for Mark Nelson's reading. His interpretation and delivery are amazing and entertaining. My recent searches have been for Mark Nelson rather than book title or author 😄.

Good reading. it watch the pronunciation

(4 stars)

I enjoyed the narration and the stories. I'd only say, as a British reader, that there are some jarring mispronunciations that mar it a little bit. E.g. The author is pronounced Woodhouse not Wode house as it looks like from the spelling. Also Lord Chiswick is pronounced Chisik - as all place names with 'wick' drop the w in the uk. It really wouldn't matter if this author's work weren't so quintessentially English - much of it based upon satire of the British class system and clever word play.

Great book, great recording if you don't mind the accent

(5 stars)

The Jeeves stories are classics and terribly funny. I adore Mark Nelson's recordings of them. His accent is American, but his tone of amiable naivety is perfect for Bertie Wooster's narration.

bit o british comedy

(5 stars)

the first chapter I didnt like the way the reading was done, but then either I got use to it or the reader improved and I enjoyed the book. several short stories all in one book, not all comprised of the same characters -but all the same rich british with servants an heirs to money. several funny quips that had me smiling. a nice batch of tales where people seek help, have a brilliant idea that doesnt work out, then come up with another idea just in time to clear things up.

Jeeves

(5 stars)

Very good reading by Mark Nelson. Jeeves a very brilliant man who can master any situation. Wooster and his friends present Jeeves with many chances,to show his talents of turning a bad situation into a winning solution. His master is not the sharpest pencil in the box one could say. I really enjoy all this authors books they are very humorous. Thanks to Mark Nelson a awesome job as always and to Librivox. Have a great listen!

Excellent book

(5 stars)

Jeeves is an extremely intelligent man who happens also to work as a butler for a, shall we say, not quite as bright young man. The misadventures they get into are a riot, along with the ingenious solutions Jeeves comes up with to get them out. This will be a new favorite. Enjoy!

Clean, entertaining stories; well done

(5 stars)

Clean, entertaining stories, with a British chap voice that keeps them highly palatable. They are interesting without being enthralling, which is excellent when you are using Librivox to distract from tedious tasks (dishes, laundry, driving, using spreadsheets). The narrator is good. I especially like his Jeeves voice. Well done.

smashing!

(5 stars)

This is brilliant! One of the funnies books I’ve ever heard. The narrator is maturing into quite a rummy reader and all that. At a few points I laughed so hard I thought I couldn’t go on, but I’m up and taking nourishment.
