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 Most satisfactory sir... 31 July 2002
By Mr. Robert Kelly VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Was there ever an author who created such a stunning array of characters as P.G Wodehouse. In this one of Betram Wooster's finest outings, not only do we have Bertie and Jeeves. We also have Gussie Fink Nottle, Aunt Dahlia, Tuppy Glossop and of course Madeline Bassett. It's a shame that Bingo Little couldn't make it, but you can't have it all.
Ah what's that, I'm straying from the plot...thank you Jeeves, I'll attend to that immediately. The story revolves around Gussie Fink Nottles attempts to woo Madeline. They appear to made for each other. Gussie is an old school friend of Bertie's who now spends his time raising newts in his substantial country pile. Madeline is possibly the world's biggest drip who believes that the stars are God's daisy chain. The book revolves around Bertie, with Jeeves's help machinations to bring the two love birds together. This is complicated by Madeline's belief that is in fact Bertie who loves her.
A hilarious romp from beginning to end, this is one of Wodehouse's finest and remains a joy to read

5.0 out of 5 stars Right Ho, Jeeves 14 Jan 2011
By Les
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Avid fan as I am, and as far as I know owner of all the P.G. Wodehouse books, on surfing amazon, I saw they now have audio CDs/DVDs of Jeeves. You might think, it ridiculous to want an audio copy too. But I hasten to say .... Richard Briers is the personification of Bertram Wooster !!! So I splurged a little :-))))- and bought 3 so far. I think Richard Briers would be a hard act to follow, a lovely, lovely gentleman. Followed much of his work on TV, so I'm a real fan of Richard too.
Just the right note, wonderful humour, great purchase !! I hope to find more !!
kind regards L.B.

5.0 out of 5 stars Side-Splitting 22 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wodehouse delivers his usual cocktail of fun and frolics in this, the cream of the Wooster collection. Jeeves takes an instant dislike to a rather natty jacket, leaving the atmos. not a little chilly, with Bertie deciding to solve his own - and others - problems. However, as always, it is up to Jeeves to extrapolate Bertie from his self-inflicted mess. Features Madeline the-stars-are-gods-daisy-chain Basset, and Gussie Fink-Nottle in a pretty frightful pair of scarlet tights. A scream from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, what ho! 3 Aug 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
If there's one thing Bertie Wooster should never do, it's make elaborate plans to bring estranged lovebirds back together.

And he demonstrates just why in the second full-length Jeeves novel, a screwball disaster saga that sees Bertie confidently trying to fix people's lives. Of course, things go horribly wrong, and Wodehouse's arch, nutty look at what happens next is an absolute gem.

When Aunt Dahlia summons him to Brinkley Court for a prizegiving, Bertie sends his newt-fancying friend Gussie instead -- especially since Gussie is enamoured of a girl staying there, the soppy Madeleine Bassett. But when Bertie hears that his cousin Angela has broken off her engagement to Tuppy Glossop -- and his aunt is in need of money -- he rushes down to assist all his relatives and pals by advising them to feign such sorrow that they're unable to eat.

Unfortunately his plan falls through, and they manages to enrage the cook Anatole to the point where he storms out. Even worse, the prize-giving is a disaster and the wrong people end up engaged -- and pursued by homicidally angry exes. Only Jeeves' formidable brain can somehow save the day -- and Bertie's behind.

P.G. Wodehouse made a pretty good living off of spoofing the upper crust of England, and the subtlely intlligent servants who bail them out. "Right Ho Jeeves" is a prime example of his writing -- some small mistakes rapidly balloon out into a crazy tangled mess, which only an intelligent manservant can rescue Bertie from.

Much of the book's charm comes from its complex plot and series of disasters (such as Tuppy's homicidal rampage).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master at work 23 July 2012
Format:Paperback
So off we go to Brinkley Court for more 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 rescue a key which was in Jeeves's pocket all along.

The interesting thing with these stories is how Wodehouse gets around the Superman problem. Of course the main flaw with any Superman story is that he is so much more powerful than anyone else; so invulnerable to attack, that every villain on the planet has to get access to kryptonite to make a dent on him. (Now, one would think that was a rare substance, but no, it seems to be as freely available to the criminal classes as lock-picks.) Wodehouse faces a same issue. Given how smart and assured Jeeves is, given that the man never makes a mistake - how does one eke out a novel worth of material with a central protagonist who can just step in and save the day in an instant? Well the answer is of course young Bertie Wooster. By creating tension between the young master and his valet, by letting Bertie get the idea that Jeeves has somehow lost it, we are treated to over two hundred pages of hilarious thrills and spills as Wooster's advice causes calamity and disaster at every turn. (It would be like a missing Conan Doyle novel, where Watson tells Holmes he's gone off his chump and starts to investigate the murders himself). Of course Jeeves will inevitably step in and save everything at the end, but even when all is resolved it's clearly just at pause until the next set of incredible and hilarious confusions begins.

Comic writing at its absolute best. The Master strikes again.
