Like a literary comfort blanket that can make you smile whenever you dip into these books. As well as starring two of the greatest comedy literary creations of all time in Jeeves and Wooster, the main star is the ability of Wodehouse to write. It is Wodehouse's brilliant turns of phrase and descriptions that mainly provide the many laugh- out- loud moments. I loved the TV adaptation starring Fry and Laurie too because the writers were aware enough to keep much of Wodehouse's language intact - so it truly was a literary adaptation. But the beauty of these books is that you really feel the joy of reading -rather than just following a story-or consuming a product. And of course you can read them time and again, which is why this boxset is a worthwhile investment.

This collection is very very good value for money. It provides more Jeeves stories than most compendiums and, as separate books, is in a more convenient format. Most of the books are the first sequence of Jeeves books written. They are nicely bound. As to the stories themselves, Wodehouse is one of the funniest writers ever. I read many Jeeves stories years ago. They are even funnier a second time around. This is real treat.

Incorrect titles were packed, ommiting five titles I wanted, and substituting titles with another order I('d previously placed, all duplicates. Vexing. I have to rebox duplicate titles and get them to a post office. BUT - when I contacted the supplier, their apologies and suggested solution were swift. I expect the replacement any day now. Initial order arrived two days ahead of expectation, which was good. Just human error in not checking orders... it happens. A bit irritating. Suggest to anyone who orders Wodehouse Collection and the individual titles not included in Collection, await Collection order first before supplementing with the additional titles.

P G Wodehouse is possibly the finest comic writer to ply the English Language in the last hundred years, anyone who reads English who hasn't read his work has a treat in store. As long as they aren't too desperately dull. Some of the finest of the Jeeves and Wooster books, such as Code of the Woosters, Carry on Jeeves, and Right Ho, Jeeves, are here, and I can't think of any that I consider 'lesser' works.

This was bought as a present, so I haven't actually seen it, but as far as collections of Wodehouse go I think this takes a lot of beating. And it is remarkably good value per bookshelf-inch.

I'm thinking of buying myself this collection, if I'm good.

This collection is really annoying. For some reason there are only 10 Jeeves books included, rather than the full set of 13. It would also be nice to have these as a boxed set, which they are not.

But MOST annoying is that the 10 Jeeves books I was sent are NOT the 10 books listed in the photo above. I had ordered the additional 3 books separately, so I now have some books duplicated and some books missing. Really sloppy from Amazon, I'm unimpressed.

This is unfortunate as the books are good value and could be a really good gift.

What is better than getting 10 Jeeves and Wooster canons for a very good discount? Getting other four to make up the whole set!

The canons missing:
Joy in the morning
Very good, Jeeves
Ring for Jeeves
Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit

A really nice, gentle read for any age. Clever, witty and funny the Wodehouse style has each story bowling along at a fine pace. Great fun.
