Book Description

Jeeves may not always see eye to eye with Bertie on ties and fancy waistcoats, but he can always be relied on to whisk his young master spotlessly out of the soup (even if, for tactical reasons, he did drop him in it in the first place). The paragon of Gentlemen's Personal Gentlemen shimmers through these fat pages in much the same way as he did through the first Jeeves Omnibus. This volume contains one brilliant collection of short stories and two hilarious novels: Right Ho, Jeeves, Joy in the Morning and Carry On, Jeeves.

    4.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't get Fry and Laurrie out of my head 30 Sept. 2008
    Format:Paperback
    Ref: Omnibus 1: This was, like many others have reported, a holiday read. Very simply this was very enjoyable and the stories flowed with ease. I am familar with the TV series so I could not get Fry and Laurrie's voices out of my head. This perhaps added to the ammusement and the general flow. All of them are far fetched and over the top but in good clean taste. The only draw back about this as a holiday read is the size and weight of the book. No regrets.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The usual Jeeves & Wooster genius 24 May 2001
    By A Customer
    Format:Paperback
    There is really nothing I can say about Jeeves & Wooster that hasn't already been said. The constant stream of startlingly original and side-splittingly funny similes, the dizzying complexity of the plots, the characters that you'd swear have been stolen from your own circle of acquaintances... three perfectly formed pearls of masterful comic writing. Aaaaaahhhhh.....

    5.0 out of 5 stars Among the best of P.G.Wodehouse 25 Sept. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Those who already know the writings of P. G. Wodehouse need no further introduction. Those who are unfamiliar with him should know that he was one of the best humorous writers in English in the 20th century. He was also one of the best writers of English. He always seemed to find the right word.

    In his series of books about Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves he created a collection of unforgettable characters. Bertie Wooster was a young man-about-town living on a private income. Wooster had been educated in Eton College, and at Oxford University, where presumably, like the sons of gentlemen, he obtained a pass degree. He invariable speaks in slang.
    His manservant Jeeves invariably uses correct English like a schoolmaster, and one of the joys of Wodehouse is the contrast between the language of these two. Besides these are various formidable aunts who terrify Bertie, and nubile high-minded young ladies who have designs on him and who he cannot stand.
    Fortunately it is in the interest of Jeeves to frustrate these young ladies to safeguard his own position. After fiendishly complicated plots, for which Wodehouse is famous, Jeeves rescues Bertie from their clutches.
    Altogether to be recommended to old readers and new

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse on fine form 8 Jun. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    As always, Wodehouse delivers a delicious, delectable, devilishly-observed slice of old English life. A true joy, and pure escapism. There is no hardship that cannot be eased, however temporarily, by slipping into Wooster's world, where the most trying problems are an unwanted engagement or intercepting a purloined notebook full of scandalous secrets.

    5.0 out of 5 stars where nothing truly bad ever happens 14 Nov. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    How can you give less than 5 stars to Jeeves and Wooster? My husband always knows when I'm reading about Bertie Wooster as I start "what ho-ing" around the house! So well written, the characters bounce off the page and I am instantly transported to a different era, and the world of Bertie Wooster, where nothing truly bad ever happens.
