E and Roderick Spode now raised to the peerage And Major Brabazon Plank the peppery explorer who wants to lay Bertie out coldThank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard but is this gentleman all he seem This book was first published in the same month I was born In fact in the UK only two days before I was born though five months earlier in the US – which surprised me somewhat I really like the idea that there might have been someone uickly reading this over the weekend that I was born and laughing away cheerfully at it all Yes I like that idea very muchWooster is truly one of the great narrative voices in English Literature There are moments when it is nearly dangerous to listen to him as I drive The man who reads them a Jonathan Cecil ought to have been given a K years ago I’ve never heard a better reader for audio books in my life His timing is immaculate and he brings the subtle and not so subtle humour of these books to the fore He has Wooster’s slightly baffled and bewildered if that is the word I’m looking for it starts with a B anyway whatever it is voice to a T There are very clever jokes – like talking about Stinker’s left hook and how adroit it is adroit being from the French for ‘to the right’ The plot is never as simple as you think it is going to be – I mean you know how things are basically going to work out but the moment you think you know what is going to happen next something totally unexpected occurs often occasioned by Jeeves – who has a minor but essential role in all of these books and generally it is something that has a very funny comment to make on – well what it means to be human I guessI really can’t rave about these books enough I’ve finally tracked some down in a secondhand bookshop but they are as rare as hens’ teeth – which is hard to imagine as the idea they should ever be out of print beggar’s belief You would think someone would have thought of printing The Great Big Book of Jeeves and Wooster – or some such thing – I’d have bought a copy – I might even have bought a couple of copies I’ve friends they would read this stuff too I’m uite sureThere is a bit of this towards the end where Wooster is talking about a man who thinks he that is Bertie is a kleptomaniac and the man is an adventurer who is forever nipping off to the jungles of the and such places Anyway Bertie is forced to the conclusion that the native aboriginal peoples of Brazil really aren’t much chop – as they have had ample opportunity to kill this old fool and clearly have not availed themselves of the occasion as it has presented itself – and the punch line is when he says something to the effect that “And these natives have the audacity to call themselves savages” The other bit that made me laugh and laugh was where Bertie was being accused of plotting to steal an ornament and while being so accused is told to stop saying Oh or Aye I understand that might not sound funny – but try it in context and it is close to the funniest thing I’ve ever heard And of course the line about finding it difficult to continue a conversation when someone begins it by saying “So” – oh dear sheer geniusI think I’ve liked this one the most so far although I’ve liked all of them the most as they have gone along They are a pure delight
