Boswell and Johnson, Watson and Holmes . . . Wooster and Jeeves? Yes, another inseparable duo, this one linked by bonds of need and comedy. Here, we find the ever cool and capable gentleman's gentleman Jeeves pulling the hapless Bertie Wooster's fat from the fire time and again in classic style. A motley clutch of buffoons accompanies Jeeves's accounts of Wooster's misunderstandings, gaffes, and backfiring plans. This enjoyable set is performed flawlessly and with great verisimilitude by Broadway's Jeeves, Martin Jarvis.

"Mr. Wodehouses idyllic world can never stale."
Library Bookwatch, Feb 2003
"Pairs Jarvis smooth rendition with five Jeeves stories about the quietly comic valet. A fine introduction even newcomers will relish."
Frank Behrens, unknown date
"All the voices are done by the excellent Martin Jarvis . . . Jarvis himself is fantastic."
Wodehouse's classic collection of the Jeeves tales includes "Leave It To Jeeves," "Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest," "Jeeves and the Hardboiled Egg," "Absent Treatment," "Helping Freddie," "Rallying Round Old George," "Doing Clarence A Bit of Good," and "The Aunt and the Sluggard."
What I mean is, while there's no doubt that in certain matters of dress Jeeves's judgment is absolutely sound and should be followed, it seemed to me that it was getting a bit too thick if he was going to edit my face as well as my costume. No one can call me an unreasonable chappie, and many's the time I've given in like a lamb when Jeeves has voted against one of my pet suits or ties; but when it comes to a valet's staking out a claim on your upper lip you've simply got to have a bit of the good old bulldog pluck and defy the blighter.
