Book Description

A Jeeves and Wooster novel



Just as Bertie Wooster is a member of the Drones Club, Jeeves has a club of his own, the Junior Ganymede, exclusively for butlers and gentlemen's gentlemen. In its inner sanctum is kept the Book of Revelations, where the less than perfect habits of their employers are lovingly recorded. The book is, of course, pure dynamite. So what happens when it disappears into potentially hostile hands?



Tossed about in the resulting whirlwind you'll find lots of Wodehouse's favourite characters - and a welcome return to Market Snodsbury, in the middle of one of the most chaotic elections of modern times.



Product Description

Review

"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" (John Humphrys)

"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" (Marian Keyes)

"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" (Lynne Truss)

"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" (Kate Mosse)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" (Susan Hill)

Book Description

'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.' Stephen Fry

More About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse brings Vim and Vigour to Politics. 4 July 2008
Format:Paperback
`Much Obliged, Jeeves' brings the two longest running sagas through the Jeeves and Wooster stories together. The oldest saga being that of Bertie being obliged to become engaged to the dreadful Florence Crane if she breaks her engagement which was featured in the first, although not first written, story `Jeeves Takes Charge' (from `Carry On Jeeves') and continued through the novels, `Joy in the Morning' and `Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit' where it first collided with the Madeline Basset saga which had previously been recounted in `Right Ho, Jeeves', `The Code of the Woosters' and `The Mating Season' and then again in `Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves'.

Florence Crane is engaged to Ginger Winship, who is standing as the conservative candidate in Market Snodsburry, should Ginger fail to be elevated to parliament then Florence, whom cannot abide failure, will return Ginger to store and expect Bertie to don the sponge bag trousers as his replacement. Although Jeeves and Wooster are canvassing on Gingers behalf complications arise when Ginger falls in love with his secretary and conspires to loose the election.

Madeline is engaged to Lord Sidcup whom is on hand to speak on Gingers behalf however his success on the campaign trail is making him contemplate giving up his title to stand in his own right as Roderick Spode. As Wodehouse points out `titles are to females like catnip is to cats' and Madeline keen to be Lady Sidcup has made it clear she would become Madeline Wooster before she would become Madeline Spode.

A political pot boiler to worthy of our own tabloid press, only Jeeves and Wodehouse will be able to scare up a happy ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever 19 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story continues the saga of Jeeves and Wooster and is well up to the standard of PG Wodehouse. Writing in his light-hearted style, portraying a world that is long past (presumably, though I don't live in those wealthy circles myself), Wooster finds himself and his friends in bizarre situation terrifying to him. It takes, yet again, the resourcefulness of Jeeves, his trusted and trusty man, to extricate him from a Fate Worse Than Death.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only all politics could be this funny 23 Nov. 2000
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Bertie has agreed to help his friend Ginger get elected so that he can win the love of the martinet Florence. Total madness ensues involving porringers and policemen, disreputable butlers and cats. Naturally Bertie escapes marriage by the skin of his teeth yet again. Thank God for Jeeves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 10 Jan. 2014
By IanR
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This review applies to all the books which I read one after the other. They are all excellent. I have never read anything were so little can happen in such an entertaining way!

The series is lovely and has pride of place on my bookshelf. I was genuinely sorry to finish them. The tales often have a simple premise. These place Bertie at the centre of a predicament, often in an effort to avoid marriage.

However the convoluted methods taken to overcome the problems and the inevitable mishaps occurring keep the the pages turning. The unlikely events are held together brilliantly by the excellent breezy writing style and wonderful characters, that actually have surprising depth.

Clearly you will have your favourites through the series but I heartily recommend them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to read 15 Dec. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find it is always a joy to read books written by PG Wodehouse. Amazing how he can make Bertie Wooster a character you are really fond of - in spite of the fact he is an upper-class layabout who can't even make a cup of tea for himself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 1 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wodehouse is just brilliant at the off the cuff observations he gives his characters. Classic being "She is just so much above me" response "Tall girl is she?". There are few writers before or since who can frame and capture humour in the easy way Wodehouse did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Later Wodehouse 12 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anything by PGW is wonderful although this later work doesn't sparkle quite so much as earlier Jeeves and Wooster. Still, you won't regret reading it.
