I'm glad to report that Brozik delivers everything I could have wished for. The prose sounds like Wodehouse, in word choice and in syntax. It sparkles and froths, just like Wodehouse. Jeeves and Wooster sound like themselves, and they behave like themselves. This is pastiche, but it's highly successful pastiche.
To describe the stories would deprive you of the fun of coming to them fresh, but I'll just say that most are crossovers with well-known characters from literature or from popular culture from Sherlock Holmes to the present. Hard as it is to imitate one author's style without sounding forced, it's harder still to put those characters in unaccustomed situations and still have them sound natural.
The editing would do credit to a printed book from a major publisher. in the entire book I found exactly one error, a "not" that didn't belong. There were none of the "their" for "there", greengrocer's apostrophes, and just plain typos that seem to plague many e-books.
Mostly I stick to the free books on my Kindle, but I will gladly pay for anything else of Brozik's that I can find. He's that good. If you like Wodehouse, or if you just like well-written funny short stories, get this book.
If you are a fan of Wooster and Jeeves; if you are a fan of the many literary Classics; if you are a fan of modern cult classics like "Batman"; even if you’ve never heard of any of those, you will have to enjoy “Whimsy & Soda”. It’s just not physically possible to read this without enjoying it! For the record: If P.G. Wodehouse could comment, I am certain he would heartily endorse Brozik’s brilliant parody of his own masterful creations.
I laughed out loud several times and found myself reading late into the night. Just to find that by reading later into the night, it brought the end if the book to a close, faster than what I wanted. So, Mr. Brozik, when shall we see more of Bertie and Jeeves??
