Publisher's Summary

“I have the honour to offer up to you, thanks to the good people of Audible, a selection of some of my very favourite Wodehouse. If these stories are new to you I hope it will be the beginning of a lifelong pleasure, if some or all are familiar I hope you will welcome them like old friends.” (Stephen Fry)

Audible Studios presents this brand new performance by Stephen Fry of some of his favourite Jeeves stories from P.G. Wodehouse, with an exclusive introduction. 

The Jeeves Collection contains:

The Inimitable Jeeves

A classic collection of 11 stories featuring some of the funniest episodes in the life of Bertie Wooster, gentleman, and Jeeves, his gentleman's gentleman - in which Bertie's terrifying Aunt Agatha appears, seeking whom she may devour, while Bertie's friend Bingo Little falls in love with seven different girls in succession (including the best-selling romantic novelist Rosie M. Banks). And Bertie, with Jeeves's help, hopes to evade the clutches of the terrifying Honoria Glossop. 

Carry On Jeeves

10 more marvellous stories introduce us to Jeeves, whose first ever duty is to cure Bertie's raging hangover ('If you would drink this, sir...it is a little preparation of my own invention. It is the Worcester Sauce that gives it its colour. The raw egg makes it nutritious. The red pepper gives it its bite. Gentlemen have told me they have found it extremely invigorating after a late evening.')

Right-Ho Jeeves

The second full-length novel featuring Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, after Thank You, Jeeves. The story is mostly set at Brinkley Court, the home of Bertie's Aunt Dahlia, and introduces the recurring characters Gussie Fink-Nottle and Madeline Bassett. Bertie's friend Tuppy Glossop and cousin Angela Travers also feature in the novel, as does Brinkley Court's prized chef, Anatole.

The Code of the Woosters

The third full-length novel to feature Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves. It introduces Sir Watkyn Bassett, the owner of a country house called Totleigh Towers, where the story takes place, and his intimidating friend Roderick Spode. It is also a sequel to Right Ho, Jeeves, continuing the story of Bertie's newt-fancying friend Gussie Fink-Nottle and Gussie's droopy and overly sentimental fiancée, Madeline Bassett. 

Joy in the Morning

Bertie is persuaded to brave the home of his fearsome Aunt Agatha and her husband Lord Worplesdon, knowing that his former fiancée, the beautiful and formidably intellectual Lady Florence Craye will also be in attendance.

What ho! It is fantastic.

Jeeves read by Jeeves (Stephen Fry). What more can one ask for? If you are into Wodehouse, this is an absolute must listen. If you are not yet acquainted with Jeeves & Wooster, this is a wonderful place to start.

Please have Hugh Laurie narrate vol. 2!

I am enjoying this book a great deal, and actually not at all minding that Fry is automatically linked with Jeeve's role. Even as Wooster, he's great. I would like it, however, if Hugh Laurie, AKA Wooster, would read vol. 2 of this project, to make it a set!

Wrong voice...

Well now. I’m running the risk of being pilloried here, but if the books were narrated by Jeeves, Fry would be perfect. However, Wooster Is a young, fast talking ‘nice but dim’ narrator. Sorry folks, but a rare miscasting for the great man. Maybe it will grow on me, but I would recommend Jonathan Cecil, who is perfect in his readings. The books are, of course, brilliantly funny.

Wonderful, but

Wonderful reading by Mr Fry of these eternal classics. However, Audible, why not provide more details on chapter and book titles!!! 96 bald chapter numbers doesn’t help when losing one’s place!

Slightly disappointing.

I was a big fan of Stephen Fry's reading of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and love Wodehouse so this seemed like a natural "must-buy". Sadly it's not a patch on that audiobook for several reasons. The first is that there are already some excellent Jeeves versions on Audible, none better than those narrated by Jonathan Cecil. While Fry is amazing, the older versions are pretty unassailable in their conveyance of the wit of Wodehouse. Another gripe is the poor structuring of the audiobook. There are no titles, and there are so many stories it's hard to track down one's favourties. Also, they omit to inlcude Carry on Jeeves for some reason. I know Fry loves Wodehouse, indeed, I came to Audible following a talk he gave on him some years ago, but this is disappointing.

Almost

Some other review said the same, but it's worth mentioning again. Fry is a tremendous narrator. He's a superb Jeeves. He's not quite a Bertie Wooster. Hugh Laurie is a superb Wooster. Quickly spoken with a very melodic way of emphasising the right words spoken by Wooster. It's only an example because I love Stephen Fry and this book is worth every penny. That said there's versions on Audible by Jonathan Cecil that deliver Wooster more like I hear him in my head when reading the books myself. It's a niggle for me because I've read some of the books. If you haven't, this book here is still brilliant. It's read by a man that loves what he's reading and what he's doing. Its 40+ hours of Wodehouse read by Fry!! That's never bad, let's face it.

Astounding writing. Done wonderful credit by Mr Fry. Shame about the choppy editing. Sentences lost.

Bliss

Volume 1?! SAY THERE WILL BE MORE! And once Mr Fry has done all the Jeeves stories, say he will start on the Blandings series! After a dreadful year for many, treat yourself to this pure escapism.

Christmas present to myself

It's the first time I'm ever reviewing an audiobook before having listened to it in its entirety. I've been a P.G. Wodehouse fan and a Jeeves and Wooster addict for quite some time now. I've read, listened and re-listened to the canon with great pleasure over the years. But what do I see popping up in my recommendations this fine Christmas morning? P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster stories narrated by Stephen Fry!? What, who, how... It doesn't make any sense, how could I have overlooked it all this time? It was just released on the 17th of December 2020, that's how. Joy really does cometh in the morning, the morning of Friday the 25th of December 2020 to be exact.

I Say!

I knew I'd love it before I even got into it. I've always hoped either Stephen Fry or Hugh Laurie could narrate the Jeeves series, and it happened! This superb and familiar Jeeves has filled me with bubbly joy. Now I must dash back to the world of JW, toodle pip.

Perfect narration

These stories are hilarious and Stephen Fry narrates them beautifully. It is amazing how well the Jeeves and Wooster stories have aged - light, clever fun.
