P.G. Wodehouse
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, (1881–1975) was a British novelist, short story writer, journalist, playwright, poet and lyracist, immensly popular for his sense of humor and mastery of language.
Best known for his Jeeves series, Wodehouse created the most resourseful and competent servant in literature, the word "Jeeves" itself has become part of the vernacular. Wodehouse also had great success as a musical theater lyricist, making contributions to "Show Boat" and "Anything Goes".
Born in England to a noble family, Wodehouse's writings reflected his background, a truly humourous perspective on the upper class. During a stay in Manhattan, Wodehouse met his wife and settled in New York, with a brief adventure in Hollywood to write screenplays. Living into his nineties, Wodehouse enjoyed the fruits of his labor and acclaim worldwide, a happy, funny man.

Delightful stories, shame about reader

The stories are classic delightful Wodehouse. But the reader's decision to roll his Rs is unnecessary at best and very, very irritating at worst.

not a fan of this narrator

Any additional comments?

I came this close (thumb and fore finger a half an inch apart) to missing out on Wodehouseian humor due to this narrator. By chapter two, all humor was lost to the annoying rolling of the "r's". I just couldn't take it any more. I switched it off, and removed it from my smart phone. I loaded "Right Ho, Jeeves" narrated by Jonathan Cecil and became a n instant fan of Wodehouse.

After finishing "Right Ho, Jeeves", I thought I would give this one a go one more time. Same thing, except now I was spoiled by Jonathan Cecil's narration. By the time I got to the second on third rolling r, I was done or undone, as it were.

Unfortunately, Jonathan Cecil did not narrate this book, but I am sure there are others who can bring Bertie and Jeeves to life in a humorous way.

Don't let this book turn you away from Wodehouse. Pass this one by, go directly to "Right Ho, Jeeves" narrated by Jonathan Cecil and experience Bertie, Jeeves, and the whole gang as they were meant to be.

Classic Jeeves stories, good Reggie Peppers

Really, if you want to read all the Jeeves stories, you COULD give this one a miss. The Bertie Wooster tales included here are available elsewhere, so unless you are looking for the Reggie Pepper tales (a sort of pre-Bertie character), go on to book 2. The 4 Jeeves stories are great, classic stories. The Reggie stories are good, but not fantastic. David Thorn, for some strange reason, fills Bertie's speech with rolling Rs, which can be annoying. Someone should get Hugh Laurie or Stephen Fry to read these stories!
