It is rare that I find myself bemoaning the fact that I just HAVE to read a book to the finish. To be honest if I'm not enjoying a read i will put it aside, but because this one's by Wodehouse I kept on going and well... Put it this way, it hasn't dated well, it is an obvious spoof on the like of HG Wells and it just isn't that funny. There's a reason that this book is being published towards the end of the Everyman series and that is because it is possibly the worst thing Wodehouse wrote? I believe it was well received in its time but I'm afraid even if I try and imagine myself reading this back in the day as it were, I'm not sure I'd have a higher opinion of it.
