"... we know what's going to happen if this particular lute goes phut."
on 7 November 2012
This is another of the wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories by P G Wodehouse. In this story, Bertie is horrified to find that Gussie Fink-Nottle is fed up with his bride-to-be Madeline Bassett. For if Madeline and Gussie don't get wed, then Madeline will come looking for Bertie to be her husband; and wedded bliss with Madeline is the last thing Bertie looks forward to. Add to that, the tribulations of his old friend Harold "Stinker" Pinker who wants to marry Pop Bassett's niece but can't without getting promoted from being the curate, and Jeeves' disapproval of Bertie's Alpine hat (blue with a pink feather), and Bertie finds himself in the soup right up to his neck.
This is a gem of a book, with old favourites Gussie, Madeline, "Stinker", Stiffy Byng, Pop Bassett, Roderick Spode and of course Jeeves and Bertie. Add to that the intrepid explorer Plank, Aunt Dahlia and collectible curios, and you have a typically complicated and wonderfully funny book. Highly recommended.
