This seemed to be the only Wodehouse book on Kindle that didn't have horrendous gaps between the paragraphs and lazy digital punctuation, and whose layout actually looked readable, so it seemed a good purchase for a holiday read. But whilst I would give the book's original content 5 stars in a heart beat - this was a wonderfully funny book, charming and clever to the nth degree - there were some serious formatting and production flaws that marred the experience and made me return the download and buy the hardback instead when I got home. (Amazon have a 7 day policy.)

The publishers of P G Wodehouse really need to take note. They are curators for the work of the greatest English prose comic of all time. Wodehouse's eBooks deserve to be editions the company is proud of. I would have spent hundreds of pounds on downloading them by now if they weren't so awfully badly produced. He has a huge back catalogue, exceptionally strong, and there is obvious scope for pricing his dozens of books affordably enough to hook people into a lifelong love affair with some of the best and most uplifting literature of the past 100 years. They are very moreish. And if the publishers were clever, they would be accurate and attractive and affordable. Even one out of three would be something.

But at the moment, even this one which has escaped the stupidly huge paragraph breaks and digital punctuation, was indisputably not proofread. It got so bad that by page 50 I decided to highlight any errors I happened to spot from then on till the end. Not counting every single chapter starting with its first letter floating up above the line (a failed drop-cap?) and without going out of my way, I came across no fewer than 71.

The character of Edwin the infernal schoolboy is a gem. Bertie pitting his wits against impending marriage and winding up half drowning Edwin is a wonderful moment. I love the names Wodehouse uses for his characters and "Stilton" just has to be one of my favourites. Jeeves, as ever is the calm centre of the maelstrom that ensues. Divine.

There are few writers who lighten the cares of life as well as PG Wodehouse. It's what he set out to do and succeeded brilliantly in book after book. This is one of the best - a Jeeves and Wooster novel written in PGW's mid-season form when he had mastered his craft and his characters and made them dance to his absurd plots.

Joy in the Morning has many familiar elements - the ghastly girl to whom Bertie was once engaged, a jealous new fiancee, the awful relatives (Edwin the boy scout causing mischief through trying to catch up his good deeds is particularly inspired.) But it is the writing that carries you through. PGW was acknowledged as a master comic novelist by Evelyn Waugh, Stephen Fry and many others. This book is a good place to start to find out why.

I don't know what I can add to the comments of the distinguished authors above. I laughed a lot at the antics of Bertie , and the brilliant word play and outrageous similes of the master. Perfect escapism at a stressful time waiting for results of medical tests which were good news, which added to my pleasure as I finished off the book. Timeless joy at any time of day.

This is one of Wodehouse's funniest and most light-hearted Jeeves and Bertie Wooster novels- and that is saying something. As is usually the case with his stories, the plot is breezy and gently non-sensical, the sort of old-fashioned musical comedy without the music that he delighted in writing and which generations of readers delight in reading. His beautiful, witty and precise use of the English language is worth the admission price on its own.

It's absolutely true, all the blurb you read by clever celebs on the dustjackets of Wodehouse's books. They are good for what ails you, never fail to comfort and make a good day a memorable one. His language is so delicious you could slice and butter it. I'm not usually this effusive but having read a few of PG's books one after the other I'm in a very, very good mood.

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.

Another delightful instalment from the chronicles of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves.

I won't bother to summarise the plot. For one thing, it is, as usual with Wodehouse's stories, incredibly complicated (though he always managed to resolve all the various threads), but also because when deconstructed it would simply sound very silly. Of course it IS all very silly, but Wodehouse binds it all together in the most enchanting and beguiling way. His use of language, liberally sprinkled with Jeeves's quotations from the classics, and his endearing and enduring characters make the suspension of disbelief very simple.

This particular book is one of the best in the Bertie Wooster and Jeeves series, and features a lot of the leading characters from the oeuvre: D'Arcy 'Stilton' Cheesewright, Lady Florence Cray, Edmund (the lethal boy scout) and Boko Fittleworth, and Bertie's fearsome Aunt Agatha (who is believed to wear barbed wire close to the skin) is hovering in the shadows.
