Superb escapist fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joy in the Morning: (Jeeves & Wooster) (Paperback)
Having first encountered Bertie Wooster many decades ago, I was intrigued to see whether revisiting him would feel dated. It was as hilarious as ever.
Firstly, we can tell that, whatever fate throws at Bertie, he'll come out more-or-less unscathed and smiling.
Secondly, it's all so charming. Blessed, of course, by his highly privileged lifestyle, Wooster nevetheless always retains an unduly cheerful and chipper demeanour: life remains slightly sweetened and rose-tinted, whatever the circumstances. Adventures come and go, but there's no REAL suffering or pain.
Finally, of course, what makes the whole reading experience special is Wodehouse's delightful verbal creativity.
All-in-all, highly enjoyable entertainment.
