Synopsis: Who can forget our beloved gentleman’s personal gentleman, Jeeves, who ever comes to the rescue when the hapless Bertie Wooster falls into trouble. My Man Jeeves is sure to please anyone with a taste for pithy buffoonery, moronic misunderstandings, gaffes, and aristocratic slapstick.
For the longest time I have been wanting to read this book. I have heard of it’s humor and lifelike characters. When I saw it was on Audible, I was excited to finally give it a read. What I found is a charming book, like chatting with a friend about the little stories in life. No, it will probably not impact my life in grand ways. No, it is unlikely I will sit and meditate on what was written. However, for a brief moment in time, I was told a series of stories. And these stories existed for me to simply sit and enjoy. I must say, it is a breath of fresh air to find a book like this one.
Whereas some books written during this time period can feel a bit stuffy, I found the classic writing style and historical storyline endearing. The combination of Wooster’s devotion to Jeeves and Jeeves intelligent ways, create a product where each story runs the same course, while keeping its delightful lightheartedness. Also, the narrator did a fabulous job bringing personality into the characters. I enjoyed the tenor of his voice and the emotions reflected in his narration.
Are you in a reading rut? Do you want to sit down and enjoy a book, I mean truly enjoy it for the small pleasure of reading a book? Is it time for a rest from reality? Leave it to Jeeves is a compilation of short stories made for these things and more. The humor does not overwhelm the simple writing style, it compliments it perfectly. In the midst of everything, you deserve a treat, I suggest you leave it to Jeeves.
