Publisher's Summary

Much Obliged, Jeeves

The book is quite funny, but the reader Dinsdale Landen does not do it justice. He has a pleasant voice, and I'm sure he's very talented - but he reads too fast, crowding the sentences, and the voices of different speakers are too much alike. I found it difficult to tell who was speaking and when the speaker changed, and I kept wishing that it was Martin Jarvis or Jonathan Cecil reading, instead. It was heavy going, to quote Mr. Wodehouse.....

I'd give it 5 stars if Jarvis or Cecil was reading.

Difficult narrator

Compared to some of the other narrators of P.G. Wodehouse's books, this one was not pleasant to listen to--the characters often sounded alike and the narration seemed rushed. Not a bad PGW story; wish it would have been a different narrator.

Hilarious

Wodehouse never disappoints, giving me many belly-laughs which must make the neighbours question my sanity if they hear.

Classic Wodehouse, horrible narrator

Dinsdale Landen races through this book like he's late for dinner. He's poor at distinguishing voices His voice for Jeeves is grating and condescending. His Bertie is dim and gabbling, without Bertie's joie de vivre and good-heartedness. He also cannot pronounce French (preux chevalier pronounced as "pro chevaleer") or Scots (gang agley is "gang AGG-lee"). Extremely disturbing, as Jeeves would say.

Rushing narrator sounds the same for everybody

You can't even tell the difference between Bertie and Jeeves!

I think that says enough about the narrator. I have likes and dislikes of narrators of Jeeves, but this is my least favorite.

He also rushes through everything, not taking a breath, which makes distinguishing between characters even harder. The non-stop rush also gives me a headache. It's as if I've fast forwarded everything 2x. Very frustrating to listen to. Don't listen to it when you're stressed, or even when you're not stressed, because you will be after 10 minutes of this.

Classic Wodehouse

Unlike some who have commented, I thouroughly enjoyed Dinsdale Landen's narration... His crisp, clipped tones sound, to me, just as Bertie Wooster might have sounded.... A brisker pace, certainly, than those masters of the genre, Messrs Cecil and Carmichael but I feel that suits this kind of narrative.....
