About the Author
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE was a comic writer who has enjoyed enormous popular success for more than seventy years. Despite all the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of prewar English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

What I loved about the entire series of books is the character development. Bertie does get somewhat wiser through the years with Jeeves' assistance, although not even to allow him to do without Jeeves services. The Depression hits in one of the later books, and all these aristocrats suddenly find their way of life changed forever, required to pinch pennies and live within their means. Through it all, Jeeves saves everyone, even whilst staring-down the double-barrel of impending ruin.
I wish all the Jeeves books were on Kindle -- I have not read them in many years and sometimes I need something to read that makes me laugh out loud.
Please note that the DVDs of the BBC "Jeeves and Wooster" series are available on Amazon -- Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are in the title roles and bring these characters to life.
I grew up with stories about Jeeves, my mom used to read me Wodehouse as a bed time story. Even though, I would giggle so much, I don't think it actually put me to sleep at all.
Anyway, this is a book all about Jeeves. And just like him, the book is smart, witty, and just hilarious.
If this is your first Wodehouse book, I can only say that you've made the right choice and welcome to the wonderful world of Jeeves!
And of course there's the sheer pleasure of experiencing the benign humor and elegant phrasing of the Master.
The 4-star rating is because at least a couple of the stories seem to have the same basic structure, and they're all fairly formulaic--the prose is usually enough to overcome this stuff, but it is noticeable.
