    Inhaltsangabe

    “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. 

    Stephen Fry

    Stephen Fry is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director and all-round national treasure. Whilst at university, Fry became involved with the Cambridge Footlights, where he met his long-time collaborator and friend Hugh Laurie. As half of the comic double act Fry and Laurie, he co-wrote and co-starred in A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster. Fry’s acting roles include Blackadder, Kingdom, Bones, V for Vendetta, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and The Hobbit trilogy. He has written and presented several documentary series and as a proudly out gay man, the award-winning Out There, documenting the lives of lesbian, bisexual gay and transgender people around the world is part of his 30-year advocacy of the rights of the LGBT community.

    Waiting eagerly for Volume 2!

    "40 hours and 37 minutes? I say! Whaat? Well, I never! Makes you think, doesn't it? Well, it's dashed good!"
    - B. Wooster

    "Indeed, Sir!"
    - Jeeves

    Dear audible,
    There are now two men stuck in my head. In enjoy their company very much, but they have a tendency to repeat themselves.
    Please persuade Mr. Fry to record as many of these books as he possibly can, so that my two new friends have a few more stories to tell.
    Thank you so much
    Julia

    Just not my cuppa of the old brew

    I love the voice of Stephen Fry. And in this book he shows that he can not only read but act (as if we didn't know) - I can pick up listening at any point and I recognise which character is speaking.

    As for the stories, I wanted to like them so much. But it seems I'm not going to be a Jeeves and Wooster a fan after all. Maybe I should not have listened to them back to back; they are just too much of a sameness.

    i am totally flabbergasted...brilliant

    Der Sprecher: Stephen Fry : Super ..vor allem wenn man vor Jahrer die GB Serie Jeeves and Wooster sah,wo Fry den Butler or better the Valet perfekt spielte... ein Genuss für Wodehouse Fans und solche die es werden sollten...so schöne Unterhalung und Comedy gibts in Deutschland kaum. Unbedingt auch die Jeeves and Wooster Series ansehen. Tudlepip

    Ten stars!

    This marathon audiobook is a generous and delicious respite for world-weary people everywhere. Once you get used to the repetitiveness of the storylines – which I actually found pleasantly transparent compared to most of life these days – P.G. Wodehouse’s writing is truly masterful. It’s basically a literary sitcom, liberally doused with some of the greatest wit and exquisitely constructed sentences ever to appear in the English language, certainly in the comedic genre. That would be more than enough entertainment without Stephen Fry’s flawless performance, but he takes it to masterpiece level.

    Right Ho, Jeeves!

    The best kind of British upper class humour presented by the best reader for the job. Simply hilarious! Especially the shorter stories in the beginning lend themselves perfectly for an entertaining morning commute.
    Right Ho Mr. Fry, an excellent audio book.

    Very entertaining, great performance

    This is amazingly funny. Stephen Fry is doing an exceptional job acting out the different characters. I was not familiar with the works of Wodehouse and now I'm completely hooked. 10/10

    Eloquently amusing

    You can not help but love the english language after having it filtered through the contrasting pair of Jeeves and his lovably inept employer, Bertie Wooster.
    Set in a time that never was, and full of people that never could be, these stories endear and captivate.
    Stephen Frys love of the material can be heard throughout the audiobook and place the listener in the midst of these eloquently amusing tales.

    Pip pip!

    Jeeves, the original superman

    Having always enjoyed the Jeeves books and TV series as a teenager, imagine how thrilled I was to discover them on audible, read by Stephen Fry, no less. The series has not failed to delight me whilst out walking every morning the last few weeks.

    Absolutely loved it

    Almost collapsed with laughter at the Gussie Fink-Nottle speech. Had such a great time listening to the whole audio book. I don‘t believe that Stephen Fry‘s reading can be surpassed!!
