The Inimitable Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse

This was my first meeting with Jeeves, and I must admit that I enjoyed the audiobook immensely.

The book is a series of very loosely linked stories. In most of them, young, wealthy Wooster or his pal Bingo Little get in some sticky situation often involving a woman or gambling, and it is up to Wooster’s genius butler Jeeves to solve the problem. Sometimes Wooster asks Jeeves for help and sometimes Jeeves takes care of the situation before Wooster even realizes there is cause for concern.

I have to say that some of the situations Wooster found himself were just hilarious. My personal favorite, though, is when he goes to the country and bets on the which of the local parsons will deliver the longest sermon.

The narrator’s accent and the British slang were a treat for me and just added to the fun. I will definitely be reading more of the Jeeves books.
