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.

What ho !

Orated with masterly perfection , what with distinct justice to every phrase. Stephen Fry outdoes himself with this one. If you have watched the Lauri-Fry series, there is bound to be a dash of nostalgia sprinkled over the otherwise large portion of nostalgia already on the plate derived from the reading of the books.



The words “Volume 1” at the end of the title fill me up with hope and eagerly anticipation

Stephen Fry makes it sound funnier than it is!

Growing up, I never muster the courage to read Wodehouse. But I was always interested in reading these popular English books. So, when I saw an audible version by Stephen Fry, I decided to get it. The stories are good, and the performance is captivating. I listen to it when I am traveling, and I have gone through 7 timeless hours and numerous stories. Looking forward to more of Jeeves in the remaining book!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nothing can equal the Briers dramatisations

I have enjoyed Mr Fry's great rendition of Sherlock Holmes. My hopes were raised when I spotted this Jeeves recording - and what a bargain for one credit. But as always with any Jeeves performance I am disappointed, simply because I have previously listened to the great Richard Briers radio dramatisations from the 1970s (almost all of which are available on Audible at a similarly bargain price).
I think Wooster is harder to play than Jeeves because Jeeves is restrained and somewhat lugubrious, while Wooster's manic behaviour can easily result in overacting in a reading/dramatisation. Hugh Laurie I found utterly unconvincing because I believe he fell headlong into that trap. Briers played the part perfectly, with apparently never even a hint of ham.
Mr Fry does not overegg Wooster in this recording, but I believe - dare I say it - that Mr Fry is too old for the part. Mr Fry was about sixty-three when he made this recording, while Wooster is an exuberant whippersnapper in his twenties. Mr Fry's rendition of Holmes did not suffer from the age difference because Holmes often seemed almost ageless.
I will of course hold on to this purchase and listen to it more than once, given my enjoyment of almost any performance by Mr Fry.

After a year of Covid and scary politics, a dose of Bertie and Jeeves is balm to the spirit.
Stephen Fry’s reading is acting of the first order. He IS Jeeves and Bertie and Aunt Agatha and the rest of the crew. Absolutely top drawer. Thank you Mr Fry!
