Listener Opinions

    " Great British humor! I caught myself LOLing all over the place quite a bit. Who knew this could turn into one of my all time favorites? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Northpapers | 2/1/2014

    " These short stories are just like every other Jeeves book, except in bite-sized morsels. Just different jokes and new, absurd situations. Light, hilarious, and thoroughly enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy McKenzie | 1/31/2014

    " The stories go together at least slightly. I really laughed out loud a bunch reading this. Mind candy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mitchell | 1/30/2014

    " I've read the first two stories, which are utterly hilarious. I can't think of a writer more consistently funny than Wodehouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reid | 1/28/2014

    " I read this Wodehouse along with two others in an omnibus edition. As they were in this edition in chronological order of their publication, one of the joys of reading them was to see how the author's style developed over the years. This is a far more accomplished and cohesive work than the first I read, The Inimitable Jeeves. As always, it is witty, charming, lighthearted and great fun. Bertie is a loveable dolt and Jeeves his hyperintelligent valet who routinely gets Bertie and his friends out of scrapes and into love. There are many laugh out loud moments here and, formulaic though Jeeves' solutions may be after a few chapters, Wodehouse's style keeps the tone fresh and delightful. A great light read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 1/24/2014

    " Brian Conn wrote a very informative review of a certain Jeeves omnibus and I read this collection through the lens of his insights. Namely, he focused on Wodehouse's beautiful use of high and low language: Biblical, Shakespearean, and the language of the pool hall or the pub. With that in mind, these stories, as wonderfully formulaic as they are, came alive to me in a new way. Not to mention, there is a superb charm in getting caught up in the trifles of Bertram Wooster, the outrageous and absurd situations he ends up in, and how, without a doubt, Jeeves, his manservant savant, always has the best solution. These stories are funny, witty, linguistically dense, and, overall, fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 1/20/2014

    " Somehow, I mistakenly got the impression that P.G. Wodehouse's books were quite bombastic. After hearing some of his books mentioned once again, I finally decided to read one. Everyone failed to mention the fact that his stories while full of pretentious characters are also full of SATIRE. Hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 1/20/2014

    " It's extremely funny and an enjoyable read. Not terribly profound (so it's a good choice to follow "The Royal Ghosts") but the writing is witty and clever and well-crafted. I also recommend the DVD's! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nim Wunnan | 1/19/2014

    " Can't go wrong with Wodehouse. Picked it up at Dawn Treader for the plane ride and a study in snappy dialogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nadine | 1/14/2014

    " I love all of PG Wodehouse! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 1/6/2014

    " The swan story is worth reading over and over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby Poe | 1/3/2014

    " This book never fails to cheer me up. I guess that's why I've read it several times over the years and have just read it again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaenolee | 12/31/2013

    " Some of Wodehouse's classic Bertie Wooster stories. This is a very easy read, filled with fun (though somewhat repetitive) storylines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chels | 12/14/2013

    " Just recently read this again for the second/ third time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Asarnow | 11/30/2013

    " I am very fond of Bertie Wooster: he is quite a good chap. 1.05am "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi I | 11/24/2013

    " If you've ever wondered where "Ask Jeeves" comes from, then try this book out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Minna | 10/17/2013

    " There are few words that describe just how much I adore Wodehouse. Bertie feels like an old friend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Land | 10/7/2013

    " Wodehouse never fails to entertain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ~☆ Alice☆~ | 8/30/2013

    " It was so amusing. You must read about Jeeves and Bertram. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 3/13/2013

    " Seriously no idea when I really first read this. Anglophilia struck too early for me even to know when it happened (Mary Poppins? Milne? That would be odd considering how poorly he and Plum got along), but it happened and this is the deepest and most abiding symptom, what? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 3/4/2013

    " Jeeves and Bertie Wooster at their finest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharif | 10/17/2012

    " I'd like to point out for the record that Pakistanis aren't the only culture to tolerate formidable aunts and arranged marriages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 10/1/2012

    " Short stories in which Jeeves saves the day several times...destroying an offensive vase Bertie has bought, knocking out Oliver Sipperley with a putter to the back of the head, and rescuing Bertie from the occasional complicated romantic entanglement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zachariah | 9/24/2012

    " It's hard not to just hop onto another Wodehouse book! So enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Allen | 6/10/2012

    " I love Wodehouse. I love the Jeeves books. I heart it all to pieces. This book is flipping hilarious, and you should them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 5/24/2012

    " Hilarious book, great use of language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toine Donk | 5/7/2012

    " "The injustice of the whole thing stirred me to such an extent that for a moment I lost that sense of being a toad under the harrow which had been cramping my style up till now." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/25/2012

    " I read this as part of the compilation Just Enough Jeeves and discuss it in this review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/13/2012

    " Wodehouse well into his stride by this third collection of stories. It'll be interesting to see how the novels work as full length entities "

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.
