    " A collection of short stories mainly about the Drones Club and its resulting characters. Enjoyed these a lot, though nothing can compare to Wooster and Jeeves. "

    " These start to get a little formulaic, but they are still classics. I love the ones starring Bingo and his wife who never finds out about his gambling. "

    " Classic Wodehouse. Almost, at times, a little too much of it, though. Too much of a good thing is still too much once in a while. "

    " It's good, but not as good as Wodehouse usually is. Similar plots at times. "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
