Oh my WORD, this was funny I read this last year when I had to spend a few weeks in hospital and it was exactly the type of book I needed I m definitely ready to readof Jeeves.
For the past couple of years, the name P G Wodehouse kept popping up in interviews and articles about some of my favorite people most notably Hugh Laurie and Neil Gaiman, among others They praised him as THE master of British comedy Since I admittedly like my comedy British, I decided it was time to give Wodehouse a try The thing with Wodehouse is that he creeps up on you During the first few chapters, I thought, What s all the fuss about There is some admittedly clever language and the strange turn of phrase, but nothing laugh out loud hilarious In true Wooster fashion, I thought, Everyone who loves this man must have gone potty They re seriously off their onion What a rummy bit of business this is And then it happened a Odds Are Stacked Against Chuffy When He Falls Head Over Heels For American Heiress Pauline Stoker Who Better To Help Him Win Her Over But Jeeves, The Perfect Gentleman S Gentleman But When Bertie, Pauline S Ex Fiance Finds Himself Caught Up In The Fray, Much To His Consternation, Even Jeeves Struggles To Get Chuffy His Fairy Tale [P.
