Product Description

Review

"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" (John Humphrys)

"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" (Marian Keyes)

"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" (Lynne Truss)

"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" (Kate Mosse)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" (Susan Hill) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Audio CD
The hilarious book by PG Wodehouse has been done justice in this rendition of 'Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit' It has the same fruitiness and vigour in the characters as portrayed in the book. The CD tells the story of the blundering Bertie Wooster, who as the favourite for the Drones club darts tournament has been drawn by D'arcy or 'Stilton' Cheesewright who stands to win 56 pounds if he wins , thinks that Bertie is pining with love for Florence Craye, Stiltons' fiancee, and wishes to break Bertie's spine in 5 places. Florence goes to visit Berties Aunt Dahlia and by some horrible mix up Bertie is persuaded to join her at his Aunts home in Brinkley,and as if that isn't enough there is a huge mistake with some fake pearls... Call on Jeeves the worlds brainiest gentlemans gentleman to help Bertie out of this fearful predicament. An enjoyable listen, I reccomend this to anyone.

In this peerless example of droll, tongue-in-cheek humor, P. G. Wodehouse continues the adventures of Bertie Wooster, an often silly member of the upper class who depends on his much more sensible "gentleman's gentleman," Jeeves, to keep his life from falling apart. In this novel, Wooster has been growing a mustache for the two weeks that Jeeves has been on a shrimping holiday, and he fears that Jeeves will not like it. Sure, enough Jeeves does not, and neither do any of his other friends—except for Lady Florence Craye, his former fiancée, now engaged to Stilton Cheesewright (to Bertie's great relief).
The fate of the mustache is only the starting point for Wodehouse's comedy of errors, however, as Bertie goes from London to his Aunt Dahlia's country home, where Lady Florence, Stilton Cheesewright, and Percy Gorringe, a young man who wants to produce a play based on Lady Florence's book, are also in attendance. As Lady Florence and Stilton Cheesewright play out their on-again, off-again romance, Percy is casting longing eyes at Florence, who is flirting with Bertie once again.
As is always the case with Wodehouse, events quickly become more complex. Percy wants Bertie to invest one thousand pounds in the play. Aunt Dahlia, wanting to sell her magazine, decides to "salt the mine," secretly selling her pearls so she can serialize a novel by a famous romance author to make the magazine more attractive. Her husband, at this point, decides to have the pearls appraised. Bertie takes Florence to a nightclub to "do research for her new novel," and he is arrested.

By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Nov. 2000
Format: Paperback
It would be far too complicated to go into a Wodehouse plot. At any given moment there are usually about fifty different strands running through a story, all of which get resolved neatly at the end by the ever competent and delightful Jeeves. Bertie's moustache is the latest fashion faux pas to cause a rift between him and Jeeves. As ever, Bertie is allowed just enough rope to hang himself with before Jeeves allows him to decide to shave it off! Wondrous

I'm working my way around to getting every Wodehouse in the series, replacing tatty old paperbacks with hardbacks (and filling in the blanks in my collection).

The books are a fantastic read, and this edition will please every Wodehouse fan.

The Everyman edition of this classic Wodehouse tale is an absolute joy before you even get to reading the thing, the quality is such as to warrant its own private bookshelf, I strongly recommend it as the best choice for the discerning Wodehouse reader. Fans of the BBC TV series 'Jeeves and Wooster' will recognise several of the stories, from the disappearance of a pearl necklace, to trouble at Milady's Boudair. However, despite the familiar plots I found it very enjoyable reading them in there original format and there is much that is new. Wodehouse creates a hilarious and vivid image of a bygone age and this book is without doubt the best way to re-visit it.

What a delicious read. Wodehouse rolls out his well-worn formula in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit to present both Bertie and his aunt Dahlia with respective conundra. It will come as no surprise to learn that Jeeves is the man that carries the day but not before the author leads us through a seemingly inextricable series of calamitous situations - mostly self-inflicted by the lovable buffoon that is Bertram Wooster. Wodehouse's prose is wonderful and his characters three-dimensional and substantial. To call this book fantastic would probably be described by Jeeves as rem acu tetigisti.

As expected, this is ace. Hordern is excellent, Briers is a little too old but enthusiastic enough, and Wodehouse's brilliant dialogue is well served.

Who could hate Wodehouse?
We're not talking realism-just sublime prose,a beautifully farcical plot and Jeeves makes everything allright in the end-though Bertie,as usual, has to make a serious sacrifice...
