5.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse brings Vim and Vigour to Politics., 4 July 2008
This review is from: Much Obliged, Jeeves (Paperback)
`Much Obliged, Jeeves' brings the two longest running sagas through the Jeeves and Wooster stories together. The oldest saga being that of Bertie being obliged to become engaged to the dreadful Florence Crane if she breaks her engagement which was featured in the first, although not first written, story `Jeeves Takes Charge' (from `Carry On Jeeves') and continued through the novels, `Joy in the Morning' and `Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit' where it first collided with the Madeline Basset saga which had previously been recounted in `Right Ho, Jeeves', `The Code of the Woosters' and `The Mating Season' and then again in `Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves'.

Florence Crane is engaged to Ginger Winship, who is standing as the conservative candidate in Market Snodsburry, should Ginger fail to be elevated to parliament then Florence, whom cannot abide failure, will return Ginger to store and expect Bertie to don the sponge bag trousers as his replacement. Although Jeeves and Wooster are canvassing on Gingers behalf complications arise when Ginger falls in love with his secretary and conspires to loose the election.

Madeline is engaged to Lord Sidcup whom is on hand to speak on Gingers behalf however his success on the campaign trail is making him contemplate giving up his title to stand in his own right as Roderick Spode. As Wodehouse points out `titles are to females like catnip is to cats' and Madeline keen to be Lady Sidcup has made it clear she would become Madeline Wooster before she would become Madeline Spode.

A political pot boiler to worthy of our own tabloid press, only Jeeves and Wodehouse will be able to scare up a happy ending.

if we're going to be picky, it's actually 'Florence Craye.'
