Amazon Review

Written in 1960, Jeeves In The Offing finds PG Wodehouse's best-loved characters on as fine form as ever. With Jeeves on holiday, Bertie Wooster accepts an invitation to Brinkley Court, where he hopes to pass a few pleasant days. However, there is little time to relax when the visit turns out to involve Bertie's ex-headmaster, a former fiancée, an eccentric playboy, and a purloined cow-shaped creamer. Bertie struggles to master the situation, but soon enough he needs to call for the assistance of his butler.

The supremely competent Jeeves saves the day as usual, able to assess any situation in a moment and dispense the appropriate advice. He guides his employer safely through numerous trials, with a great deal of humour derived from the very triviality of the obstacles which must be overcome, as well as the comic ways in which the difficulties are resolved.

Simon Callow's reading captures the characters' nuances perfectly--the Butler's "Very good, sir" and "Indeed, sir" (for example) have just the right measure of professional respectfulness, studied disinterest, and a slightly superior air. As with the other cassettes in the Penguin series, Jeeves In The Offing provides a wonderful rendition of Wodehouse's expertly-crafted material. --John Oates --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
