Reviews

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.

smashing!

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.

Funny!

Mark Nelson does a good job reading these very entertaining escapades of Mr Wooster and his butler Jeeves. However a reader who could deliver this recording in the appropriate British accents would make this audio absolutely hilarious!

Solid but not perfect


(4 stars)

A delightful collection of short stories read competently. Professional-sounding reader, very well produced. However, if you're a great af​fi​cio​na​do of British lit and video, the reader may distract you with his super-American accent (so American you could take a slab of it, put it on a stick, and deep fry it). It's been many years since I pronounced the author's name as "Wode-house" instead of "Woodhouse", or other names like Cheswick as [CHEEZ-wik] instead of [CHIZ-ik]. I enjoy the reading more after after I upped the playback speed. Definitely better than average, though.

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

So much fun


(5 stars)

As a great fan of the Jeeves and Wooster TV show, it was easy for me to picture the all of the scenes as they were narrated so expertly by Mark Nelson. Nobody can top him for creative narration. All of the stories are entertaining and so much fun.

Funny and entertaining


(4.5 stars)

I absolutely loved it, so much so I had to download right ho Jeeves as well and so far I'm not disappointed. P.G Wodehouse really has a way of drawing you into the story that is bound to keep you interested.
