5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, Wodehouse!, 26 Nov 2007
This review is from: Very Good, Jeeves! (Paperback)
`Very Good, Jeeves!' is a collection of Wooster and Jeeves stories which carries on from where we last heard from them in `Carry on, Jeeves'. As before Jeeves is a resource used to sort of all manner of problems for Bertie Wooster, his great friend Bingo Little and his not so great friend Tuppy Glossop using `The psychology of the individual'. As usual problems are presented in the shape of Bertie's Aunt Agatha, Uncle George and the esteemed Sir Roderick Glossop. New problems of more dramatic consequence are presented by Bobbie Wickham whom we met previously in the second volume of Mr Mulliner short stories `Mr Mulliner Speaking'.

Weather extracting Tuppy from the arms of an opera singer or saving Bingo from being caught putting the housekeeping on a horse Wodehouse and Jeeves never let the menagerie or the reader down. Although not as clever as the twists and turns in later Jeeves novels the short form does suit Bertie's narrative of Jeeves successes.

As ever the Wodehouse language as over complicated by Wooster's pen is a pleasure to behold. Bertie's description of the game of Rugby been as `fruity' a description to ever grace any publication `I know that the main scheme is to work the ball down the field somehow and deposit it over the line at the other end, and that, in order to squelch this programme, each side is allowed to put in a certain amount of assault and battery and do things to its fellow man which, if done elsewhere, would result in fourteen days without the option, coupled with some strong remarks from the Bench.' Top hole.
