THE INIMITABLE JEEVES by P. G. Wodehouse (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“My 'Book of the Century'….P. G. Wodehouse at his shining best.” (Chicago Daily Tribune)
When Bingo Little falls in love at a Camberwell subscription dance and Bertie Wooster drops into the mulligatawny, there’s work for a wet-nurse. Who better than Jeeves? This first Jeeves & Wooster story Plum ever wrote delivers all the colorful characters that make his plots so witty.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Frederick Davidson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“By far the most prolific audiobook interpreter of P.G. Wodehouse's comic English manor-house tales, Frederick Davidson here offers a [superior] performance ….Aunt Agatha alone is worth the price of admission.” (AudioFile)

When Bingo falls in love at a Camberwell subscription dance and Bertie Wooster drops into the mulligatawny, there’s work for a wet-nurse. Who better than Jeeves?
This is the first Jeeves and Wooster story “Plum” ever wrote. Wodehouse weaves his wit through a wide collection of terrifying aunts, miserly uncles, love-sick friends, and unwanted fiancés. Bertie gets into a bit of trouble when one of his pals, Bingo Little, starts to fall in love with every second girl he lays his eyes on. But the soup gets really thick when Bingo decides to marry one of them and enlists Bertie's help. Luckily, he has the inimitable Jeeves to pull him out of it.
