The Code of the Woosters is one of the best known of Wodehouse's Bertie and Jeeves series. Bertie's beloved Aunt Dahlia pressures him into stealing a cow-shaped silver creamer much coveted by his uncle from his arch rival in silver collecting, Sir Watkyn Bassett. At the same time, Bertie attempts to patch up the shaky romance between Guisse Fink-Nottle, the newt expert, and Madeline Bassett, a four star drip. The results of Bertie's efforts are, as always, a financial disaster. He nearly gets lynched, arrested and engaged by mistake. And, as always, Jeeves is on hand with a last-minute brainstorm to set everything straight. Read by a full cast.

Listener Opinions

    " This was my first Jeeves book and I didn't probably enjoy it as much as I should have because I read it way out of order. (I think there are many more books before this one.) Regardless, it was an amusing read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherie Taylor | 2/17/2014

    " I adore the Jeeves series. The humor is subtle and spot on! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared | 2/16/2014

    " Hilarious early 20th century comedy. Jeeves is the brilliant butler, and Bertie Wooster his incompetent employer. Jeeves saves the day again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Pettus | 2/9/2014

    " although i am mostly a fan of cutting-edge and very contemporary fiction, i also have a weak spot for victorian and edwardian class-conscious british satirists, and it doesn't get much better when it comes to that than pg wodehouse. his series of wooster and jeeves tales have not only been adapted numerous times in all kinds of media, but even sparked the cultural understanding of "jeeves" automatically standing for a butler -- they're that well-known. highly worth checking out if you're just starting to get into the genre (as well as george bernard shaw and em forster), this should be on everyone's "classics" checked-off list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/30/2014

    " Jolly good, what? Although in a very rare example of over-simplicity, Wodehouse gives, I think, a poorer exposition of the secret of Eulalie than the Jeeves & Wooster TV show did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keely | 1/23/2014

    " This was very funny and I think enhanced because I listened to it on audible. The narrator was very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stuart Laughlin | 1/23/2014

    " My first Wodehouse book. Hilarity from start to finish. Did not want to stop reading it. Will read many more Wodehouse books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/20/2014

    " This book is just plain funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/4/2014

    " This stand-alone novella features More Wooster, Less Jeeves. The faithful valet is more background than usual, but his gentleman's foibles are in fine display. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chenoa | 12/25/2013

    " Wodehouse is amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 10/30/2013

    " The comic flip side of Downton Abbey. Hilarious use of dialogue. I'm anxious to watch the series now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Jones | 10/20/2013

    " This book must be the funniest ever written and is definately the funniest one I've ever read. Jeeves has to help Wooster out of tricky situations when he is asked to steal a cream jug. As per usual he gets into all kinds of sticky situations, and it's always Jeeves who comes to the rescue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 10/8/2013

    " Fast-paced, hilarious romp through a comedy of manners. Wodehouse is one of the few authors who can reliably make me laugh aloud while I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanzen | 10/3/2013

    " I love these books, laugh out loud funny! Nothing beats Jeeves and Wooster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael Briggs | 9/11/2013

    " All PG Wodehouse books are essentially the same book. Luckily, it's a really awesome book that I don't mind reading over and over. Excellent read-out-loud material. Get the Jeeves and Wooster ones like this one; the others feel like they're missing something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 7/19/2013

    " Comedy genius. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KarenLee | 7/13/2012

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this reread. As usual, Wodehouse makes me laugh out loud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Panther | 2/18/2011

    " I wish every book was 'Code of the Woosters.' - Jorn "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teardra | 10/31/2010

    " I really wanted to like this book. It did make me smile. I laughed twice. But the story was too similar to slapstick for me to enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 12/1/2009

    " Loved the A&E versions of these books with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. The books are every bit as fun - or even more! The writing is so fresh, creative, and funny. This book on CD made a great road-trip read for us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micah | 10/20/2009

    " This is a Jeeves and Wooster book. That's all you need to know about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 8/27/2009

    " Light, airy, fun read from an impeccable author. Throw in just a dash of anti-fascist sentiment and you've got a nice afternoon's entertainment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Londonmabel Mabel | 12/16/2005

    " Chock full to the brim with Wodehouse's witty prose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Comaskeyk001 | 7/31/2004

    " get in dark mood....read woody "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Carroll | 2/7/2004

    " This is a good book, but probably of modern Dutch manufacture. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 8/20/2003

    " The main character, Bernie Wooster, is a whiny coward, who wouldn't survive if Jeeves wasn't around to save him. It wasn't as funny as I had hoped, either. Right O! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mari | 4/9/2003

    " Very clever, if you catch my d. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandie Glenn | 1/13/2003

    " Fun read with catchy language that had me laughing out loud more than once! It is an intricately woven story that you have to pay attention to because every detail is important! That may be overstating it, but all the pieces do come together!! Light-hearted and funny "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
