    1. Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE, was a comic writer who enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of than seventy years and continues to be widely read over 40 years after his death Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse s main canvas remained that of prewar English upper class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career.An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by recent writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie and Terry Pratchett Sean O Casey famously called him English literature s performing flea , a description that Wodehouse used as the title of a collection of his letters to a friend, Bill Townend.Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a talented playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of fifteen plays and of 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes 1934 and frequently collaborated with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton He wrote the lyrics for the hit song Bill in Kern s Show Boat 1927 , wrote the lyrics for the Gershwin Romberg musical Rosalie 1928 , and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers 1928.

    1. This is almost as funny as The Code of the Woosters, which is saying a lot, since Code is the funniest book ever written by anybody anywhere The plot isn t important as usual, misunderstandings and peevishness disrupt the general mood of an old English country house, lovers are parted and social bonds are threatened, but by the end thanks to the inimitable Jeeves tranquility is restored, couples are reunited, and most important of all aunts are placated The justly famous climax where a tipsy Gus [...]

    2. Who needs expensive Freudian psychiatrists when you can have this The discovery of some toy duck in the soap dish, presumably the property of some former juvenile visitor, contributed not a little to this new and happier frame of mind What with one thing and another, I hadn t played with toy ducks in my bath for years, and I found the novel experience most invigorating For the benefit of those interested, I may mention that if you shove the thing under the surface with the sponge and then let it [...]

    3. Bertie Wooster takes the reins from his gentleman s gentleman Jeeves, who had everything well enough in hand, and soon everything s gone pear shaped, if that s the expression I m looking for Bertie s well intentioned schemings upset his aunt and uncle s brilliant French chef, who gives notice, which upsets everyone s gastric juices Meanwhile his meddling upon a friend s behalf almost divorces Bertie himself from his beloved bachelorhood, egads When one comes to the realization that they are a fi [...]

    5. In 2012, I was elected the Vice President of our college alumni association here in the UAE I was to take charge at our annual get together at the same event, I presented an ottamthullal, a satirical dance drama which was a runaway hit What with all the celebratory euphoria, I imbibed a little too much of the happy juice in the parking lot outside the venue drinks were not allowed in the hall and before I knew it, I was pickled to the gills.You can see me with a beatific smile as I took the stag [...]

    6. This dashed difficult problem of where to begin it It s a thing you don t want to go wrong over, because one false step and you re sunk I mean, if you fool about too long at the start, trying to establish atmosphere, as they call it, and all that sort of rot, you fail to grip and the customers walk out on you Bertie Wooster, in spite of being a silly ass, has a way with words His first person narrative is a joy to read, it does help that he has P.G Wodehouse to write on his behalf He is right of [...]

    7. WOOSTERS GUIDE as opposed to boring old Webster s guide Woosters are men of tact, and have a nice sense of host obligations Even when displaying the iron hand, Woosters like to keep the thing fairly matey When woosters put their hand to the plough, they do not readily sheath the sword Woosters are fair minded, and make allowances for men parading through London all night in scarlet tights my favorite Woosters like to have their story ready A Woosters word is his bond Woosters are quicker witted [...]

    8. This was a delight Truth be told, Wodehouse saved me during a long and boring meeting yesterday I was stuck in the auditorium for hours, but luckily I had Right Ho, Jeeves, downloaded on iBooks Soon I was smiling and trying not to giggle too loudly.In Right Ho, Bertie Wooster manages to bungle things severely with two different couples who are staying at his aunt s house, and even accidentally gets engaged to a silly girl who talks of fairies and stars I don t want to wrong anybody, so I won t g [...]

    9. Every line was perfection I kept laughing out loud and looking for someone to read bits too, but alas, there was no one who appreciates this the way I do at hand The real tragedy, though, is realizing that I will never have friends with awesome names like Tuppy Glossop, Pongo Twistleton, and Gussie Fink Nottle

    10. Those starting to read P G Wodehouse should start with this novel, which is sometimes called BRINKLEY MANOR It is the immediate predecessor to Wodehouse s most perfect novel, THE CODE OF THE WOOSTERS He wrote this in his mid fifties It was something like his fortieth novel He literally wrote about seventy novels, all of them extremely light, the vast majority of them humorous His very early novels were about cricket players at prep school RIGHT HO, JEEVES features P G Wodehouse s most famous cha [...]

    12. So off we go to Brinkley Court for high japes and adventures Along the way hearts will be sundered, friendships forged in childhood will be momentarily broken and mentally negligible young men will make complete fools out of themselves If you re already aware of the books but can t quite determine which one this is after all, they do share very similar plots , then this is the episode with Gussie Fink Nottle dressed as the devil and Bertie making an eighteen mile round trip on an old bicycle to [...]

    13. Five stars aren t enough for a book that contains Gussie Fink Nottle s speech at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School Any writer who ventures into comedy should read some Wodehouse.

    14. Oh, Bertie Oh, Tuppy And oh, oh, Gussie An engagement to the delicately nurtured of the species can go a bit rummy under certain circs Not to mention prize giving at that bally Market Snodsbury Grammar School Bertie does his best to save the day, based on his knowing the psychology of the individual , but as usual his schemes only serve to make chaps go to fires from frying pans Thank goodness for Jeeves

    15. Stimulated by the juice, I believe, men have even been known to ride alligators With lines like these, it is definitely not difficult to love a Wodehouse book Right Ho, Jeeves sits right there amongst the best of Wodehouse that includes almost all of his books Right Ho, Jeeves goes on to narrate a story about the suggestively piscine Gussie Fink Nottle or as Aunt Dahlia prefers to call him eventually Spink Bottle, and you will know why and his problematic betrothal to Madeline Bassett and along [...]

    16. One of the many fine Jeeves and Wooster novels from between the two WWs Certainly takes one away from the newspaper headlines Numerous chuckles, occasional guffaws Right ho, indeed.

    17. P.G Wodehouse is the absolute master of first person narrative Bertie s voice in the Jeeves books is one of the greatest achievements in all of comic fiction absolutely consistent, totally confident, unerringly wrong Jeeves is the title character, and certainly the greatest butler in literary history, but Bertie is nonpareil And it s no wonder that the Jeeves books haven t really worked in dramatic form and I include the very good BBC series with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry without Bertie s narr [...]

    19. I saw that it would be fruitless to try to reason with her Quite plainly, she was not in the vein Contenting myself, accordingly, with a gesture of loving sympathy, I left the room Whether she did or did not throw a handsomely bound volume of the Works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, at me, I am not in a position to say I had seen it lying on the table beside her, and as I closed the door I remember receiving the impression that some blunt instrument had crashed against the woodwork, but I was feeling [...]

    20. The rummy thing about life is that though you feel exhilarated that you ve read a wonderful book, you begin to get the wind up your pipe wondering why the dickens you hadn t read anything from this author chappie ever before

    21. Jeeves, hand me my Thesaurus This is going to require than a few superlatives for me to even come close to accurately describing just how brilliant this book is This is, quite possibly, the funniest book I have ever read and most likely will ever read, what The humour is astoundingly advanced for its time, and effortlessly eclipses most of the comedies I ve unwittingly subjected myself to over recent years television included.P.G Wodehouse has such consistently amazing prose, where every word i [...]

    23. Just loved it It took me a little while to get a hang of this type of writing This kind of writing either gets you totally engrossed or you throw away the book For me it was the former Couldn t stop laughing out loud many a times Try it, be patient,you may love it.

    24. My preference is for the Bertie and Wooster short stories because usually the novels seem to drag a bit in the middle but this one was consistently funny Loved it.

    26. First, though possibly not foremost, how can you not love an author named Pelham Grenville In a world of Tonys and Chrises and Ryans, you have to admit that a name such as that inspires a certain confidence in one s authorial voice.Otherwise, it s a typically wonderful Wodehouse novel, with Bertram Wooster mucking about in the affairs of his friend Gussie and attending the party of a friend named Pongo, GOOD LORD THE NAMES DO ME IN , and of course has to rely on the inimitable Jeeves to sort it [...]

    27. Y know, this is terrific Screamingly funny that speech Fitz Nottle gives is amazing and deceptively intricately plotted It s a puzzle book, right Our heroes get into what seems like an untenable situation, and the suspense is wondering how Jeeves will fix it, and that s all very cleverly done Jeeves is sortof a dastardly hero, and Wooster himself is one of the great unreliable narrators.
