My Thoughts:

The Inimitable Jeeves is a short-story collection but the stories are somewhat connected so it reads more like a novel than some of other Jeeves collections. Most of the stories involve Bertie’s pal Bingo Little who just can’t help falling in love with every girl he meets. Many hijinks and much hilarity ensues.

I never get sick of Jeeves. As mentioned in my other reviews, no matter how similar the plot structure is (Bertie and/or friend get into trouble, Bertie makes it worse, Jeeves comes to the rescue), I always find them entertaining.

And, once again, I recommend these stories on audio. They are so much more entertaining when listened to.

If you have yet to meet Bertie Wooster and his butler Jeeves, you are truly missing out on something special. Go to your library. Now.

[Note: I am skipping the “Others’ Thoughts” and “Buy It Now” sections for audiobook week only. They will return soon.]

    Are the Jeeves books always story collections? Hmm, that actually makes me want to get to them a little less.
