Product description

Review

"Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in" (Evelyn Waugh)

"P.G. Wodehouse remains the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness, that no one else has ever captured quite so sharply, or with quite as much wit and affection" (Julian Fellowes)

"He is the head of my profession... If in, say, fifty years, Jeeves and any other of that great company shall have faded, then what we have so long called England will no longer be" (Hilaire Belloc)

"A peerless collection" (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

"A genius ... Elusive, delicate but lasting" (Alan Ayckbourn)

Perfect for a dip into when the spirits need a lift - I'm a massive Wodehouse fan and love the novels but this book is a nice little 'extra' to do just that, just pick a page and dip in. Wodehouse never disappoints. Very pleased with purchase.

Watching the BBC series made me return to the books themselves, which bear little resemblance to the TV show. They are infinitely better. I've had the hard copy of this book for many years, and now enjoy the kindle version which means I can read it anytime I need a pick me up. Wodehouse is the perfect soother of the furrowed brow. His humour is gentle and never offensive. If you've never read Wodehouse, then I suggest you start with Blandings and Elsewhere and more specifically, Lord Emsworth and the Girlfriend. I dare you not to laugh.

I've been aware of Weekend Wodehouse all my life as it was my late father's favourite bedside book but I'd never been allowed to lay my hands on his sellotaped and very raggy copy.

And then I found that it is available on Kindle so I could not resist buying it. It's even more irresistible now it's actually on my Kindle. It consists of extracts from many of Wodehouse's books and his other writings and it's great for dipping into. I dip in at meal times,in waiting rooms and on journeys. I disgraced myself by laughing out loud in the breast cancer outpatients waiting room.

Yes, it's mostly stuff from other books but that's what it's meant to be. Buy it knowing that and you will buy pure joy.
