Book Description

1 July 1993
Poor Bertie is in the soup again, and throughout this latest omnibus it is only Jeeves who keeps him from being the fish and the main course as well. In these delightful pages you will encounter all the stalwarts who have made the Jeeves novels and short stories the pinnacle of English humour, from Aunts Agatha and Dahlia to Roderick Spode, Tuppy Glossop, Madeline Bassett, Oofy Prosser and Anatole the Chef. At the end even Augustus the cat has come to be much obliged to Jeeves. This volume contains Much Obliged, Jeeves, Aunts Aren't Gentlemen and the short stories 'Extricating Young Gussie', 'Jeeves Makes An Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.

Review

"The gold standard of English wit . There is not, and never will be, anything to touch him" (Christopher Hitchens)

"The funniest writer ever to put words to paper" (Hugh Laurie)

"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)

4.0 out of 5 stars Decreasing value for money 25 July 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The stories in this Volume, as in the previous 4, are quite simply magical - sublime humour that never wears thin. What does wear thin is the size of these Omnibus volumes - the first three ran to a generous 600 pages, volume 4 to 500 and this volume to 400. It's not as though there is a shortage of stories and I begin to feel that Wodehouse fans are getting less and less value for money - maybe the publishers feel they can make more by re-publishing the individual collections of stories. Don't be put off buying just yet though - laughter is something that can't be overvalued!

Lots of good reading in this omnibus - Wodehouse at his best. Lots of comedy the inept Bertie and his bright as a button Jeeves.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
P G Wodehouse weaves a hysterically convoluted plot around Bertie Wooster involving policemen, and thieves, cooks and crooks, doctors, and spotty patients, aunts and cats, and most importantly, a small army of rather unagreeable (though pretty) ladies threatening marriage. Only a guardian angel (or perhaps Jeeves) could disentangle this web of angry aunts and loving cats in his typically wise and serene manner.
Bertram Wooster, an animated, well meaning lovable and decadent member of the financially sound society of London, has the uncanny talent of always getting entangled in a convoluted web of misunderstandings (usually involving idiosyncratic ladies and almost always a marriage plan). His character in these novels and short stories is juxtaposed by the antithetically tranquil and knowledgeable character of Jeeves, and his uncanny ability to extricate his master from the most entwined situations.
These tales penned by PG Wodehouse are brought to life not only by the intertaction of these two adorable characters, and the convoluted plots, but also through the superfluous control over the language he uses to describe particular moments, each uniquely and absolutely hysterically throughout the book. This book will have you laughing and sniggering for a good part of the week while you read it and most definately later, when you recall it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blandings Beginnings and Crowning Work 26 Jun 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book contains two novels. The first is, I suspect, the first of the Blandings Castle series and is hesitant and pedestrian in places. But there are many flashes of the treats to follow in later volumes

The second half of the book comprises the excellent Summer Lightning - the pinnacle of the Blandings series where Wodehouse had really got into his stride.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 26 Jan 2013

What can you say about this collection apart from it really is perfect? P. G. Wodehouse is a master of the English language. He paints the most beautiful images in our minds and brings warm smiles to many a pair of lips. The only writer that really can produce heaven. I wish he were alive so that I could give him my thanks. If you've never read him then start with his Jeeves and Wooster short stories. You'll never regret it.
