STIFF UPPER LIP, JEEVES

by | Read by Jonathan Cecil

Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Is it possible? Jonathan Cecil gets even better at reading Wodehouse. Given the excellence of his earlier narrations, that's hard to believe, but it's true. In this Wodehouse classic, Cecil gets a chance to stroll through a half-dozen distinct class and regional accents of British English. Everyone--except the ever-calm Jeeves, of course--writhes in sublimely ridiculous emotional agonies as Madeline tries to convert Gussie Finknottle into--say it softly--a vegetarian, thereby upsetting the applecart of relationships for everyone from narrator Bertie to dog Bartholomew. Completely ridiculous, it's all a pleasure for the ear and wit. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
