    " Wodehouse is a master of the English language. This novel is laugh-out-loud funny, cutting, insightful, surprising, and the plotting is freakin' amazing. A true masterwork. Turn off cable news or whatever mediocre bombast the twenty-first century is bleating at you, and pick up this treasure of the twentieth. For anyone who delights in the oddities of modern Dutch cow creamers, to asocial newt collectors, to black-shorted Fascists. AMAZING! "

    " Who doesn't love Bertie Wooster and his all-knowing servant Jeeves? I loved this book. It was so funny to watch the interaction between Bertie and all of the other characters. Of course, one of the real delights is in watching Jeeves rescue Bertie from numerous difficult situations. I love the way Wodehouse lovingly skewers Bertie's class. As always, Wodehouse is charming.

    " What a fantastic book - PG Wodehouses style of writing is perfect I love the dry wit and the unbelievable situations Bertie gets into when there seems no way out and then Jeeves comes sailing in and saves the day..again!! "

    " I got hooked on Wodehouse a few years ago and have to read or reread one of his ridiculous books every couple of months to keep my sanity. Thank goodness they are short and fun to read and readily available at the library. A glass of wine and an evening with Jeeves and Wooster...cheaper than therapy and a lot more fun! "

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.
