Jonathan Cecil - a superb Wodehouse narator
His performance is sublime in telling the many tales or Bertie Wooster, and his faithful savior Jeeves. His portrayal of the characters and the narrative far outshines that of my own, as perceived by my own reading of the text.
The Code of the Woosters. Probably the best of all the Jeeves stories, and for this one I would recommend the one available here, as performed by Martin Jarvis. I don't think there is a Jonathan Cecil version available, though I might be wrong.
His ability to convey a vast array of diverse characters.
Always amusing, and engrossing. These particular performances, being shorter than most complete audio books, can be consumed easily within one sitting. Had many a journey become most enjoyable, with such things to accompany me.
Nope, other than Wodehouse is great fun, easy to absorb, and enjoy. As read by Jonathan Cecil in this case, even more so.
Wodehouse in mid-season form
The wonderful world of Wodehouse and his eccentric characters is brought to life by the excellent performance of Jonathan Cecil, whose range of voices and characterisation both male and female is remarkable. It is a delight to be taken back to the carefree lives of the idle rich between the wars and be immersed in the exploits of the hapless Bertie Wooster and his running battles with his formidable aunts.
