The unthinkable has happened! After reaching the end of his infinitely patient tether through Bertie's incessant practising of the insufferable banjolele, Jeeves is about to leave Wooster's service. Never fear though, our favourite double-act is bound not to be apart for long, and there are many eccentric, problematic, charismatic, even trans-Atlantic characters to keep them company along the way!
No longer in master Bertie Wooster's employ, Jeeves is engaged with a new employer, Lord 'Chuffy' Chuffnell, an old friend of Bertie's. True to form, thus follows a supreme comedy of errors which is guaranteed to raise many a chortle, as Wooster travels to one of Chuffy's cottages in Dorset to carry on his banjolele practice in (dubious) peace.
First published in serialised form in The Strand magazine between 1933-4, Thank You, Jeeves is a novel that lends itself to audiobook, with its diverse range of dotty voices all relayed magnificently by master Wodehouse reader Martin Jarvis.

No-one appreciates Bertie Wooster's talents. The neighbours have complained about his assiduous practising of the banjolele, and Jeeves has threatened to leave. Seeking refuge in Lord Chiffington's cottage, Bertie's peace is shattered by the arrival of his ex-fiancee and her father.Review:
