Nothing cheers me up like Wodehouse's Jeeves stories, and Bertie's friend Bingo, who falls in love with every girl he meets, is one of my favourite characters.

This book centres on Bingo's various amours, from the socialist revolutionary, via the bun-shop girl to even the formidable Honoria Glossop. Luckily Bingo has Bertie to smooth the path of true love, with the help, of course, of Jeeves' superior brain power.

A particular highlight, for me, in this book is Jeeves' pickpocketing of Soapy Sid - the man's talents are never-ending, it seems! Wonderful stuff.

Having never read P G Wodehouse, I was very pleasantly surprised. Jeeves and Wooster are remarkable character even today. I find the writing enjoyable and delightful to read. Emmerse yourself in these delectable books. Funny and brilliantly contrived.
Although, there have been numerous recordings and television adaptations, I have not watched or heard any of them. I'm a reader first and foremost, if like me it is your passion to read then pick up this book!

Quite simply, this is the finest example of Wodehouse's work. The Inimitable Jeeves works perfectly as a standalone novel and as a collection of short escapades which can be quite reasonably read individually. The characters of Jeeves and Wooster come alive in this book, with Wodehouse's dry wit shining through to give a truly delightful read.

Jonathan Cecil is an extremely talented narrator of Jeeves and Wooster-stories. He is the absolute best at it. You're in for a treat listening to him.

Best book I've read in a very long time. Only trouble was I knew what was coming having seen the TV series. Didn't stop me enjoying it though. I will be buying more of the same

These stories involving Bertie and his travails with the love life of Bingo Little are still on top form, but they read as short stories and I much prefer the uninterrupted narrative flow of the other Wodehouse novels. Wodehouse's strength is in his ability to smoothly manipulate the most complicated plot relationships over the length of an entire novel. In their crudest form the novels are farce, but his authorial skill elevates them into classic comic literature. The short story form doesn't do him credit. Read the other novels and see him at his best. Having said that this is still very funny work.

incredibly funny stories about a young rather silly toff and his much cleverer butler (jeeves) who keeps rescuing him genially from all sorts of social diseasters.
i love this audio version as martin jarvis is able to put on a whole host of voices reading the stories : scary aunts, workingclass revolutionaries, sponging highclass friends, insipid girls - he can do them all and have me crying with laughter while stuck in a traffic jam on my way to work.

Some of the later dramatic incarnations of Jeeves seemed to miss the point that Jeeves is not supposed to sound as if he's a posher man from an even posher background then Bertie himself. This dramatisation, however, sounds close to spot-on to me: Richard Briers is hugely amusing as Bertie Wooster, and Michael Horden is very good as Jeeves, too. The whole production is extremely well done, and is an absolute treat to play.
