`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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
