If you’ve heard of Jeeves and Wooster, but never found the time to read the books, then these audiobooks on MP3 are for you. However, if you’re a seasoned follower of the adventures of the hapless Bertie Wooster and his redoubtable manservant Jeeves, then you’re also in for a treat. Carry On, Jeeves is a collection of short stories, one of which is told from Jeeves’ point of view, in which he remembers the day he was hired.
The Jeeves and Wooster stories are light and funny, told with Wodehouse’s typical attention to detail and love of the idiosyncrasies of the upper echelons of British society. Wooster is one of the idle rich; dependent on his Aunt for money and always getting himself into outlandish scrapes. Jeeves, by comparison, is sturdy and reliable; the typical British butler. However, Carry On, Jeeves is much more than a comic romp, for there are a number of scenes that gently explore the relationship between two men who are separated by a social divide.
Jonathan Cecil sublime tones are perfect for this CD audiobook, and Cecil has made a name for himself playing the perennial British silly ass. His impeccable comic timing and character interpretations are inspired, creating an audiobook for MP3 that will serve as the perfect companion for a quiet night in.
