"It is a wonderfully happy book." (Guardian)
"This light-hearted romp is delightfully witty, packed with puns and boasts a few phrases that Wodehouse himself would have deemed top-hole. Splendid stuff." (Sunday Mirror)
"The finished product resembles, in all but cover, a traditional Wodehousian yarn. Harking back to the summer of 1926, it is a gentle, jolly tale – of farce and mistaken identity, of love lost and found, of cricket matches, village fetes and the eccentric upper classes." (Telegraph)
"At two memorable moments in Jeeves and the Wedding Bells I did indeed laugh until I cried… Jeeves and the Wedding Bells is a masterpiece… This is a pitch-perfect undertaking: proof, almost a century after his debut, that Jeeves may not be so inimitable after all." (Spectator)
"The plot is satisfyingly convoluted in the best Wodehouse tradition . . . A genuine addition to my growing Wodehouse collection and there is no higher tribute." (Daily Express)
"He catches the Wodehousean idiom, periphrasis, surreal similes and bally silliness to a T, all done with love. Please commission a dozen more, Hutchinson." (Literary Review)
"From the first page of Sebastian Faulks’s entirely delightful book . . . we are transported to Wodehouse land. All the details, of plot, of character, and of setting, are lovingly drawn. The hours spent reading Jeeves and the Wedding Bells are pure pleasure." (Financial Times)
"Faulks has caught the mood and the dialogue perfectly" (Sunday Express)

The storyline is a delight from start to finish. Not straying too far from the traditional traits of a classic J and W, but with just enough twists and turns to intrigue the reader. In that regard a slight departure from the trusted PGW formula but probably necessary to meet the needs of 21st readers.
Unfortunately I now have one major criticism of Mr Faulks and the Wodehouse organisation. When interviewed he said it was a one off. This would be a tragic waste of brilliant talent. He and the Wodehouse family have to be persuaded to write more!
What a year for us, with Stephen Mangan and Matthew McFadyen, in Perfect Nonsense, also improving on Laurie and Fry as the best ever portrayers of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves.
How I have missed them. This was a great, well written J & W caper that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope that there is more to come.
It is not often that one author manages to take on another's characters, but this has been done seamlessly.
