Galahad can’t abide broken hearts. So when Sam Bagshott and Sandy, Lord Emsworth’s current secretary, have a falling-out over a bet, Galahad determines to reunite the warring couple. Sam stands to win a sackful if Tipton Plimsoll marries Veronica Wedge, Lord Emsworth’s niece, but there’s a rumor that Tipton is deep in the financial soup. Veronica’s fearsome mother immediately stops all nuptials. To add to the mayhem, the Empress, Lord Emsworth’s beloved prize porker, is discovered drunk. Fortunately, Galahad is on hand to put matters right. Or so he hopes.

    " PG Wodehouse has some of the best lines and names imaginable. To say much more would give something away, but suffice it to say I reallly enjoyed this. "

    " I think I am suffering from word aversion. Attempting to read this book was for me like facing Everest. It was just too wordy. Maybe I'll come back to it later but I rather think not. "

    " Le mia "febbre wodehousiana" colpisce ancora! Un ottimo libro, consigliato per qualche ora di divertimento e allegria. Il personaggio di Galahad è veramente uno dei più riusciti. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dani | 9/4/2010

    " Amusing but not nearly as hilarious as the other Wodehouse books I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/5/2010

    " This is a giggle clear through. I love, love the way Wodehouse presents the world in which his characters move. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saubeer | 11/15/2009

    " My first Wodehouse, interesting to see the way he wound up most of the characters together and set up humourous situations. The writing is quite good, but the situations are a bit stretched sometimes, nevertheless the character of the pig itself introduces a good dose of humour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 9/13/2009

    " Just plain fun. This was a good one, on the high end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 8/23/2009

    " Man, I just really love reading Wodehouse. This book was fun and brought back the gang at Blandings Castle, but really Wodehouse is Wodehouse -- you come for the prose and geniality and stay for the hijinks... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candice | 4/29/2009

    " Good book, good story line. It took me a little while to get into it but once I did I couldn't put it down. Definitely check it out if you like British humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 12/22/2008

    " Entertaining follow up to Full Moon, again featuring Galahad and Hermione at Blandings Castle. "

    " One of the Blandings stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 8/4/2008

    " I think PG Wodehouse is always a good palate cleanser. Even though all his many books tend to follow the same general storyline, they're always refreshing and light and fun. I love the Blandings series and this was a delightful pick-me-up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 7/10/2008

    " Anything by P G Wodehouse is wonderful - just fun, escapism reading. But his Blandings Castle books are perhaps his very best. "

    " as always such fun! There's no one like Gally. "

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.
