Synopsis:
In Thank You, Jeeves, Bertie Wooster retires to a cottage in the country without the assistance of his right-hand man, Jeeves. But after a period of lively adventure, during which the cottage is destroyed by fire, Bertie returns to London, accompanied once more by the invaluable Jeeves.

Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves are perhaps the most beloved characters in all of English literature--certainly the most humorous. P. G. Wodehouse's classic novels reflect the glories and absurdities of a vanished era.

Review:
Jonathan Cecil gives a sparkling performance of this classic piece of Wodehouse humor. Cecil's Jeeves speaks with the great dignity and classic accent one expects of the ideal valet. In contrast, Cecil performs Bertie with all the winsome frivolity due to the fictional aristocrat. Cecil maintains perfect distinction of these characters even during extended dialogues and adds characters with American accents when the attractive Pauline and her protective father appear on the scene. Wodehouse's confection of muddled engagements and provoked musicians is perfectly narrated. R.F. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
