Publisher's Summary

Jeeves is on holiday in Herne Bay, and while he's away the world caves in on Bertie Wooster. For a start, he's astonished to read in The Times of his engagement to the mercurial Bobbie Wickham. Then at Brinkley Court, his Aunt Dahlia's establishment, he finds his awful former head master in attendance ready to award the prizes at Market Snodsbury Grammar School. And finally the Brinkley butler turns out for reasons of his own to be Bertie's nemesis in disguise, the brain surgeon Sir Roderick Glossop.
With all occasions informing against him, Bertie has to hightail it to Herne Bay to liberate Jeeves from his shrimping net. And after that, the fun really starts.

Good story, not a favourite narrator

What three words best describe Ian Carmichael’s performance?

At first, I was a little put off by the fact that the narrator talks so quickly. Several times I had to rewind a bit and listen to something one or two times more before I could make out what it was. I got over that as I got used to the speed though. Only, the more I got used to the speed with which this is narrated, the more I started noticing the fact that the narrator seems to think that Bertie has a speech defect! Often when Bertie is saying something, he sounds like he's nearly stuttering and this doesn't seem to happen with any of the other characters. I found it quite annoying, as I'm pretty certain there has been no mention before of Bertie having this sort of trouble.

What did you like most about Jeeves in the Offing?

You either 'get' Wodehouse and love him as I do or you don't.

What does Ian Carmichael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Ian Carmichael and Jonathan Cecil are the only two narrators who can do justice to Jeeves and Wooster. Sorry Martin Jarvis - love your William but Wooster : NO, NO, NO.
