Five stars is not enough Wodehouse is often called the greatest English comic novelist of the twentieth century Surely this should be of any century I can think of no better, and his novels still outsell plenty of authors held in high esteem at the time This is Wodehouse at his best If these stories do not strike you as funny, I fear for your soul. A superb collection of stories to dip into The world of Jeeves and Wooster never fails to amuse, entertain and lift the spirit I am still reading this book mostly at bedtime and enjoying it hugely The turn of phrase is delightful and unique to P.G Wodehouse His style is very suited to short stories and I am pleased to find that I have not read any of them before If you like Jeeves you will like this collection. A life time favourite which I am glad to have on my Kindle The writing is superb and the gentle humour a delight Wodehouse created a wonderfully absurd but entertaining and timeless world for Bertie and Jeeves, The language is evocative Jeeves shimmers into a room the butler entered, a solemn procession of one from the Blandings stories and Jeeves s linguistic convolutions are all part of the fun. Who, once experiencing P G Wodehouse, doesn t love his works especially the Jeeves series of books A real joy to read The words he uses, the beautiful turns of phrase, the sheer escapism of the world he invented an England that didn t really exist, at least not in totality If you haven t read or listened to this before, please do You ll be hooked, I m sure.
