Bill (Lord) Rowcester was well and truly in the gumbo. With the benefit of hindsight he could see that setting himself up as a Silver Ring bookie might not have been his smartest move ever. Particularly when being down on his dibbs threatens his oncoming nuptials with the sterling Jill Wyvern. Lucky for Bill he had the land-lease of Jeeves. Lucky indeed that the fish-fed mastermind’s formidable genius was at liberty to take a header into such teasers as borrowing the stellar Mrs. Spottsworth’s pendent for an hour or three or overseeing the added ingredients of Abbey’s Derby Dinner, to say nothing of his lordship’s mauve pajamas.

    " If you get a chance to hear the audiobook of this read by Nigel Lambert, do take it up. It's a hoot. I should think that some of the humour and the plot might get a bit tedious when read, but with all the characters brought out so well by Mr Lambert this is a delight to listen to. "

    " Wodehouse's comedic talent is genius; thoroughly enjoyable word choices. This was a light and charmingly entertaining read. "

    " I missed Bertran Wooster sadly in this novel, but it was hilarious nonetheless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miss Clark | 3/15/2010

    " I've only read The Return of Jeeves, but this was the only listing on Goodreads for that title...

    Anyways, a bit less interesting and sparkling than Wodehouse's norm and not one of his that I would recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 3/12/2010

    " Bertie is off taking courses in bed-making, boot-polishing, basic cooking, and sock-darning. Jeeves is on loan to Rowster Abbey, doing what he does best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 11/23/2009

    " a very fun read,filled with wit and silliness. lots of wealthy or once wealthy english gentry, with too much time on their hands. farce and hi-jinks ensue. wodehouse was a jewel of a writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanjiv | 7/24/2009

    " Surprisingly , the first Wodehouse title where i've encountered hints of sexual innuendos "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/25/2009

    " Just a slight reference--though the cover art would make you think it more--to the "psychical" interest of a lead character, but other wise...awesome!!!!!!!!

    "

    " Bertie's presence was felt although he was absent. It was nice to see Jeeves from the outside being clever as always, and happy endings all around. Still missed Bertie a little, though. Fun read. "

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.
