5.0 out of 5 stars Quality July 30, 2013

I have been reading Wodehouse for half a century without any dulling of excitement when something new (to me) comes along. The man was a master wordsmith.

I'm giving it three stars because it's a collection of rarities culled from oid magazines and presumably out of copyright, but the layout is poor and careless and the original publications are not given, so it hardly works well as an archive. Readers should be warned that all collections in this series are carelessly done and few dates or details as to original publication are given. It's useful to have these old pieces but the titles can be misleading. The 'complete' Psmith, for instance, contains The Prince and Betty which has a Psmith-like character called simply 'Smith'. I think the P might have been added if there had been any effort to edit that collection.
The 'complete' Jeeves is no such thing but an early collection of stories which probably appeared in The Strand or Colliers (maybe both) and have been allowed to slip into the public domain. Whoever did these doubtless did us a service but I'm disappointed that they didn't finish the job properly. They need an editor's touch. I'm sure they could be cleaned up quickly if the publisher allowed a PGW enthusiast at them. It beats me why someone should go to the trouble of creating them and then spoil the jolly old skiff for, as it were, a ha'porth of that sticky stuff I'm always getting on the spats in the summer sunshine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful fluff. Silly sweet brain candy. August 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If ever you are in a foul mood, need a reason to smile, or simply want some mental candy to chew on, there are few things better than a PG Wodehouse short story. Between Bertie Wooster, Jeeves, golfing, and ridiculously ridiculous situations, seasoned with a stiff british upper lip, you cannot go wrong. The first time I picked up a Wodehouse book, I could not go to sleep. I was laughing too hard. This one is a nice mix of various characters, story telling, and dubious shorts about writing. The best is how Bertie met Jeeves for the first time, hung over, as always. It simply is a fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Wodehouse February 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is a good variety here, of short essays, stories and poems, all in P. G. Wodehouse's excellent style of wry humor. There is mention of Reggie Pepper, a Bertie Wooster precursor; and Bertie meeting Jeeves; and commentary with sly wit. Wodehouse wrote in an era with a slower pace. He was a genius, as another reviewer said.

Wonderful product! Wodehouse is a wonderful writer and always gives great fun and laughs. A wonderful view of life at a time when the world was a little less hectic. Gives you a chance to stop and have a laugh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anything by Wodehouse is funny and clean. His stories are also sometimes a bit intellectual, and if the narrator is talking directly to the reader, sometimes in an "aside", as if to let you in on some joke about a character.

I missed Wodehouse's writing when I was growing up. Now I've matured, I love his wit. It has been provided at no cost to you, so why not enrich your humor quotient?

5.0 out of 5 stars but so far it is a good transcription into Kindle format--no errors...
Wodehouse is always delightful, and these stories, so far as I have read yet, are as well. I've only read the first few, but so far it is a good transcription into Kindle... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars So so stories.
Usual Wodehouse writing. Somewhat dated style. Best story involves his best characters Jeeves and Wooster. Worth reading on a slow, rainy day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse is a rarity!
Wodehouse never fails to disappoint, especially not in expressing some personal opinions on topics. He is funny and creates turns of phrases that make one smile and giggle. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Early Wodehouse
Wodehouse hasn't completely matured as yet in this earlier work, but he already exposes the humorous side of human nature, which belongs to every century on both sides of the pond.
