Idle young Bertie Wooster, embroiled in other people's romances and his aunt's financial difficulties, can only be extricated by his astute manservant, Jeeves, in this 1930s comedy. Martin Jarvis, a fine reader and voice actor, shows effortless comic timing, variety, and ability to express thoughts and feelings. His Bertie is excellent, with the proper mixture of sprightliness, goofiness, decency, and conceit. But Bertie and Jeeves, the two main voices, are similar, and one is conscious of one man reading two parts. Some of the other voices are not fully convincing. But, overall, Jarvis's energy and skill make for a bright and amusing performance of a bright and amusing book. W.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
