Editorial Reviews

Review

Mr. Wodehouse, for the entertainment he has given us alone, has as much claim as any to be considered (as Bertie might put it) the Grand Old Man of English L. --Times Literary Suppement (London) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Bertie is in an awful pickle when Jeeves, over Bertie's constant playing of the banjolele, leaves his employment and is replaced by a knife weilding socialist who would rather see his blood running down the gutters than bring him his cup of tea. In this absolutely hilarious book from the Master, Bertie find himself in a burning house, chased by a knife weilding valet who thinks he is the devil, hounded by cops in the middle of the night, visited by ex-fiances in his bedroom, having his face painted black to escape from the yatch of an American millionaire, a kindered soul in 'England's biggest alienist' and in jail (again). Whew, what an adventure.
This is also P.G.Wodehouse's first full length novel, and on reading it one chafes that he did not start writing full length Jeeves novels earlier. This book is a very enjoyable read, if you like P.G.Wodehouse, you will definitely take to this one, if you don't, then obviously you have not read the man's works, and this is a great place to start.

I love Wodehouse's Jeeves book. My review and rating concern the Overlook Press edition. While this edition is commendable in many ways, it falls short in one critical respect. The hardcover, binding, and paper are very nice. However, the font is small. I'm not that old, and I read a lot for work and pleasure. The font is appreciably smaller than usual for hardbacks, paperbacks, magazines, newspapers, and journal articles. It strains the eyes. So, while Wodehouse's content would merit a 5, this edition gets a 3. Hopefully, this review will help someone who (like me) is already a fan of Wodehouse and is looking for a nice hardcover. This edition would be perfect if the font were larger.

I'll make this short. I won't get into the "N-word minstrels" issue (the troupe never appear onstage, and Jeeves is his usual formal self when he refers to them). I won't praise the comic language, as worthy as it is of praise. I'll just note that in his first Jeeves novel, Wodehouse is reaching toward the polish (pardon the word) of the next novel. The ending of this one is not nearly as neat, and Jeeves is much more voluble than elsewhere: Bertie and gang have to cut him short. (Wodehouse did one short story in Jeeves's own voice. It was an excellent story, but, somehow, it didn't work.) Jeeves just gets better later on: smoother--and sneaky, bigosh! Have fun here, and then go forward.

Format: Hardcover
Ever the bachelor, Wooster seems dependent on his trusty servant Jeeves. For those that wonder what Wooster would be like with Jeeves in the service of another, this is the book. Reflecting a bygone era, "Thank You Jeeves" is laced with British humor that even those in the New World could appreciate.

The story start with Bertie's refusal to give up the obnoxious banjolele. Jeeves makes the choice to end his employment, including not following Wooster's latest exploits. Wooster relocates to Chuffnell Regis, a town run by an old school chum, so that he can play his instrument in the solitude of the country. But matters are complicated when he goes to lunch with his old pal and a love triangle is apparently drawn. Bertie quickly sees that his friend and former fiance are in love, and does everything he can to help them become engaged. Of course, he only manages to bugger everything up. Enter Jeeves.

Though some of the humor is dated, it will not be lost on contemporary audiences. The prospect of a lord in face paint is enough to raise an eyebrow by itself. In its own right, Jeeves is a classic.

I am an African-American fan of P.G. Wodehouse and I must say, the old master was an old racist! The N-word is very widely used here, and it will come as a surprise that NO ONE BOTHERED TO TAKE THE RACIAL SLURS OUT!!! That being said, it is as funny as most of the Jeeves and Bertie books with a surprise for those that thought Bertie and Dr. Roderick Glossop had no points of reference. I have read all of Mr. Wodehouse's Jeeves works, as well as Mr. Mullinger, Psmith, and the Blandings Castle novels, so I can affirm that most of the racial slurs only appear in this book,, and in a short story in 'The Man with Two left feet" Otherwise the word "Negro" is used, as in the story with the purple socks, and that is not offensive. Enjoy as best you can.

I just loved Thank You, Jeeves - such a character - I think he's one of the best characters PG made!!! I think in our hearts we all wish we had a friend like Jeeves....so he's the best! But then again I am such a sucker for all of Wodehouse and the wacky people he created, and will never stop reading his stories, (or watching some of the Jeeves and Wooster on DVD), and you are going to enjoy Jeeves too, and you are going to laugh. But that's not all, you get great word play, you get comedy, you get farce, but you also get human emotions and last but not least, you get a look back in time - not really that far back only 100 years or so, give or take, but at a time that we can remember but without cell phones, where newspapers came out two or 3 times a day, where telegrams were sent like we email and where you could still get away with a clever impersonation! Enjoy! And if you are looking for some more Wodehouse fare, these are a few rare but VERY funny books that you will enjoy every last page of......

The Head Of Kay's: A British Humor Classic
The Gold Bat: A British Humor Classic
The Gem Collector: A British Humor Classic
The Coming Of Bill: A British Humor Classic
The Clicking Of Cuthbert: A British Humor Classic

Enjoy each and every Wodehouse you can find! :)
