I downloaded the All About Jeeves free audiobook from Simply Audiobooks back in November and forgot about it. A couple of days ago Heather from Age 30+ Books persuaded me to give it a listen. I'm glad I did.
In All About Jeeves, Edward Duke performs all the characters in Wodehouse's comic stories. This audiobook includes Jeeves Takes Charge, Bertie Changes His Mind, The Chump Cyril, and Jeeves and the Hard-Boiled Egg.
I wasn't sure what to make of Bertie Wooster at first (especially that weird laugh) but he grew on me. Bertie is a young English gentleman. He doesn't do much other than go out drinking and having a good time with his friends. In Jeeves Takes Charge, Bertie hires Jeeves as his valet and it's love at first sight. Jeeves concocts a cure for his hangover. It's like Mary Poppins has arrived.
He very stealthily starts organizing Bertie's life. Bertie is a pretty easy going guy (even when he tries to take charge). The only thing that bothers Bertie about Jeeves is his obvious disapproval of his fashion sense. Jeeves has a quiet way of getting Bertie and his friends out of trouble. It amazes Bertie every time.
Many times I was laughing out loud (good thing I was alone at home), at the things Bertie says. I will definitely be reading, or listening, to more of Jeeves.
