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.

Funny story and love Mark Nelson's narrations. Followed his readings after this. Only complaint is I wish he would read all of Wodehouse's work (and other non sci-fi books, only because I'm not into them). Definitely worth the listen. Thanks for reading. : )

Amusing


(5 stars)

A most enjoyable romp! Beautifully narrated! I loved how the characters from another era, sprang to life. Jeeves, the brilliant loyal man servant, Bertram Wooster his dull witted, but likable master. A very amusing collection of tales, highly recommended listening experience,

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.

Entertaining - book & reader


(4 stars)

Enjoyed these stories - mostly because of the reader. I'm one of those listeners that however much I'm interested in the story, if the reader is bad - forget it! Mark Nelson does a wonderful job. And, BTW, I've always pronounced "Wodehouse" like "ode" with a 'W' in front of it.

Great fun


(5 stars)

Charming collection of short stories featuring the irresistible pairing of Wodehouse’s quietly brilliant man servant Jeeves and his predicament prone employer Bertie Wooster. Includes several stories featuring Wodehouse’s earlier prototype Reggie Pepper. Bertie and Reggie’s richly colorful English slang is half the fun. Perfect escape from the cares of the real world.

a fun listen


(5 stars)

this series of short stories or episodes is very outside my usual listening preferences but I enjoyed both the storytelling and the narration. If you are into the 1910's then I recommend this as a great source of turn of the century vernacular - not quite Edwardian, very nearly roaring 20's
