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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) grew up in England and came to the United States just before World War I, when he married an American. He wrote more than ninety books, and his works, translated into many languages, won him worldwide acclaim.

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.

This is a must read for anybody interested in Wodehouse's work. Set in Chuffnell Regis as a result of Bertie's suddenly found passion for Banjolele, the plot thickens with hiliarious twists. I read this book 4 times just for the character of Sir Roderick. What a book!

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.

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! :)

Sing praises of P.G. Wodehouse.
Wax eloquent regarding Overlook edition fit and finish.
Sum up with witty but obscure Wodehouse reference proving I have read everything he ever wrote.

Copy.
Paste.

Done.

Format: Hardcover
On almost every page, I found myself laughing out loud while reading this pitch-perfect book. The characters are wonderfully eccentric; Wodehouse masterfully skirts the edge of making them campy or caricatures of themselves. The storyline is enjoyably ridiculous - like the best possible hybrid of a Shakespeare comedy and Seinfeld. In this case, Jeeves saves his master from an unwanted marriage to an American heiress. In all, it was a diverting escape to the inconsequential adventures of minor British nobles and their servants and neighbors.

Classic P.G. Woodhouse. If you haven't read any -now is the time to start the series. This is such good therapy for the rushed, modern lifestyle we now experience. My husband & I listen to them together and smile. If you cannot meditate then read PG Woodhouse :-)
