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 Laugh 4 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
I think part of what makes this book so funny is the plot and Bertie's use of language as narrator, part of it's charm is that Wodehouse provides us with a picture of a long past world filled with appealing characters that we want to learn more about and that we can still identify with. Of the Jeeves and Wooster stories, Right Ho Jeeves is to my mind the funniest Right Ho. Jeeves but at some point everyone should read the Jeeves books

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a long car journey 6 Jan 2013
By Mr Tea
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you a a fan of PG Martin Jarvis is to my mind the master of this sort of thing. He renders all the characters so vividly that you believe you are listening to a whole roomful of actors. I find the skill of Jarvis a perfect companion to the wit and style of Woodhouse and possibly more enjoyable than watching a tv adaptation. Perfect for a long car journey,

5.0 out of 5 stars Bertie is in an awful pickle..... 23 Nov 2003
By Athulan Vijayaraghavan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bertie is in an awful pickle when Jeeves, over Bertie's constant playing of the banjolele, leaves his employment and is replaced by a knife weilding socialist who would rather see his blood running down the gutters than bring him his cup of tea. In this absolutely hilarious book from the Master, Bertie find himself in a burning house, chased by a knife weilding valet who thinks he is the devil, hounded by cops in the middle of the night, visited by ex-fiances in his bedroom, having his face painted black to escape from the yatch of an American millionaire, a kindered soul in 'England's biggest alienist' and in jail (again). Whew, what an adventure.
This is also P.G.Wodehouse's first full length novel, and on reading it one chafes that he did not start writing full length Jeeves novels earlier. This book is a very enjoyable read, if you like P.G.Wodehouse, you will definitely take to this one, if you don't, then obviously you have not read the man's works, and this is a great place to start.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Small Font 11 Feb 2011
By Angry Panda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Wodehouse's Jeeves book. My review and rating concern the Overlook Press edition. While this edition is commendable in many ways, it falls short in one critical respect. The hardcover, binding, and paper are very nice. However, the font is small. I'm not that old, and I read a lot for work and pleasure. The font is appreciably smaller than usual for hardbacks, paperbacks, magazines, newspapers, and journal articles. It strains the eyes. So, while Wodehouse's content would merit a 5, this edition gets a 3. Hopefully, this review will help someone who (like me) is already a fan of Wodehouse and is looking for a nice hardcover. This edition would be perfect if the font were larger.

5.0 out of 5 stars A first excursion 10 Jan 2011
By J. M Heumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I'll make this short. I won't get into the "N-word minstrels" issue (the troupe never appear onstage, and Jeeves is his usual formal self when he refers to them). I won't praise the comic language, as worthy as it is of praise. I'll just note that in his first Jeeves novel, Wodehouse is reaching toward the polish (pardon the word) of the next novel. The ending of this one is not nearly as neat, and Jeeves is much more voluble than elsewhere: Bertie and gang have to cut him short. (Wodehouse did one short story in Jeeves's own voice. It was an excellent story, but, somehow, it didn't work.) Jeeves just gets better later on: smoother--and sneaky, bigosh! Have fun here, and then go forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You PG for Jeeves! 8 July 2009
By Marie Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just loved Thank You, Jeeves - such a character - I think he's one of the best characters PG made!!! I think in our hearts we all wish we had a friend like Jeeves....so he's the best! But then again I am such a sucker for all of Wodehouse and the wacky people he created, and will never stop reading his stories, (or watching some of the Jeeves and Wooster on DVD), and you are going to enjoy Jeeves too, and you are going to laugh. But that's not all, you get great word play, you get comedy, you get farce, but you also get human emotions and last but not least, you get a look back in time - not really that far back only 100 years or so, give or take, but at a time that we can remember but without cell phones, where newspapers came out two or 3 times a day, where telegrams were sent like we email and where you could still get away with a clever impersonation! Enjoy! And if you are looking for some more Wodehouse fare, these are a few rare but VERY funny books that you will enjoy every last page of......

The Head Of Kay's: A British Humor Classic
The Gold Bat: A British Humor Classic
The Gem Collector: A British Humor Classic
The Coming Of Bill: A British Humor Classic
The Clicking Of Cuthbert: A British Humor Classic

Enjoy each and every Wodehouse you can find! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Anglo Humor 25 Jan 2011
By JMack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Ever the bachelor, Wooster seems dependent on his trusty servant Jeeves. For those that wonder what Wooster would be like with Jeeves in the service of another, this is the book. Reflecting a bygone era, "Thank You Jeeves" is laced with British humor that even those in the New World could appreciate.

The story start with Bertie's refusal to give up the obnoxious banjolele. Jeeves makes the choice to end his employment, including not following Wooster's latest exploits. Wooster relocates to Chuffnell Regis, a town run by an old school chum, so that he can play his instrument in the solitude of the country. But matters are complicated when he goes to lunch with his old pal and a love triangle is apparently drawn. Bertie quickly sees that his friend and former fiance are in love, and does everything he can to help them become engaged. Of course, he only manages to bugger everything up. Enter Jeeves.

Though some of the humor is dated, it will not be lost on contemporary audiences. The prospect of a lord in face paint is enough to raise an eyebrow by itself. In its own right, Jeeves is a classic.
