I don't know what I can add to the comments of the distinguished authors above. I laughed a lot at the antics of Bertie , and the brilliant word play and outrageous similes of the master. Perfect escapism at a stressful time waiting for results of medical tests which were good news, which added to my pleasure as I finished off the book. Timeless joy at any time of day.

Another classic from PGW. If you want to escape from the drudgery of every day 21st century existence then PG is the man for you. A richly coloured and idyllic fantasy world of the English upper class from the early 20th century with scenarios that make you want to laugh out loud throughout its soothing pages.

`Joy in the Morning' is a Jeeves and Wooster novel which is a sequel to the first short story, chronicling Jeeves entrance into Bertie's life, `Jeeves Takes Charge' which appeared in the `Carry On, Jeeves' anthology.

Bertie is visiting his Uncle Percy's estate to help with securing the old buffers blessing on the union of his good pals, Nobby and Boko, despite the well meaning assistance of his cousin Edwin, a boy scout who is typically behind on his good deeds. Also on hand is Florence Craye whom was engaged to Bertie in `Jeeves Takes Charge' but is now engaged to locally bobby Stilton Cheesewright. The usual misunderstandings ensure that Stilton's nomination is scratched in preference to the hapless Bertie whom Florence sees as a challenge to mould.

And so Wodehouse and Jeeves have there work cut out, they have to not only bring a happy conclusion to the engagement of Nobby and Boko but need to break Bertie's engagement to Florence whilst keeping him away from Stilton and the laws long arm.

The joy lasts all day long - brilliant, coruscating prose, ingenious plotting and lovable characterisation making for a delightful experience - you read at the pace which draws out the pleasure of reading, unwilling to finish this masterly novel.

The pleasure this book gives is just the same as for all of Wodehouse;s creations.The brilliant writing is sheer joy and yopu do not want it to end, so much so, that you are more than ready to order your next Wodehouse tale.

The title says it all, top hole farcical joy from start to finish. I read all theses books many years ago and have recently rediscovered the Joy of Jeeves.Dip your toe in, you won't be disappointed.

Bliss! I've reviewed other Cecil/Wodehouse audiobooks, and this ranks amongst the best. No one, but no one reads PGW like JC. Joy in the Morning, afternoon and evening...

This has gone down a storm with a Wodehouse fan- he thought that he's finished the Jeeves books, but, ignore the title. In his words, "Stupendous".

Like all Wodehouse this book is superbly entertaining. I have read it before a long time ago, but this didn't stop me enjoying it all over again.

I am not worthy to review such a book except to say you slip into the narrative, smile and get lost in a different, happier world
