Worth 5 stars End of story One word of caution reading it convinced me my vocabulary was mediocre as I kept encountered convinced me my vocabulary was mediocre as I kept encountered known words at least once per page Bertie do you read TennysonNot if I can help PS Sorry I could not resist inserting one uote I promise it is the last one Yes JeevesThe man had materialized on the carpet Absolutely noiseless as usualA note or you sirA note North for me JeevesA noteor you sirFrom whom JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirFrom whom JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirFrom Miss Bassett JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirAt this point Aunt Dahlia begged us or heaven s sake to cut out the cross talk vaudeville stuff Always willing to oblige I dismissed Jeeves with a nod and he lickered Dead Giveaway for a moment and was gone PPS For people living in countries where the government has not gone wild with copyright laws the book is availablerom Project Gutenberg Sorry my German Andrew Lost In the Kitchen friends The 2012 re readGussie Fink Nottle is in love with Madeline Bassett but can t seem to talk to her Madeline Bassett is in love with Gussie Fink Nottle but thinks Bertie Wooster wants to marry her Bertie s cousin Angela was engaged to Tuppy Glossop but they had a bust up over whether or not Angela saw a shark Can Jeeves put them all back together He might have been able to had he and Bertie not had aalling out over Bertie s white mess jacket First off this review will hardly be unbiased My love Strange Son: Two Mothers, Two Sons, and the Quest to Unlock the Hidden World of Autism for PG Wodehouse is such that if the zombie apocalypse occured and Wodehouse came staggering toward me with a lustor brains I would be completely unwilling to shoot himThe second Nope full length Jeeves and Wooster novel is a big improvement over theirst The writing is crisper the similes even hilarious and Jeeves and Wooster unction like a well oiled machine Once again the rift between Jeeves and Wooster was as a plot device effectively than in Thank You JeevesAs usual uotable *as a plot device effectively than Thank You JeevesAs usual uotable are in abundance As usual I did not write any of them down while I was readingLack of appetite I m as hollow as the Grand CanyonThe exuisite code of politeness of the Woosters prevented me clipping her one on the ear holeThe strength of the Jeeves and Wooster books is that Bertie is a bit of a athead and he performs the role admirably in Right ho Jeeves Bertie thinking he could be as good as Jeeves at solving problems Pshaw I say Once things are suitably muddled Jeeves saves the day as he always does I do not consider the previous sentence a spoiler since it happens in every Jeeves bookFunny moments abound many of them centering on a drunken Gussie Fink Nottle Aunt Dahlia is in Listening: The Last Poems of Margaret Avison fineorm Tuppy Angela and Madeline Bassett were negligible but still had their moments Right Ho Jeeves the second Jeeves and Wooster novel is a much better read than the Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life in and Out of Jazz first Wodehouse is the master of the bumbling romantic comedy Four easy stars In 2012 I was elected the Vice President of our college alumni association here in the UAE I was to take charge at our annual get together at the same event I presented an ottamthullal a satirical dance drama which was a runaway hit What with all the celebratory euphoria I imbibed a little too much of the happy juice in the parking lot outside the venue drinks were not allowed in the hall and before I knew it I was pickled to the gillsYou can see me with a beatific smile as I took the stage later in the daySee the serenity of the countenanceAnd here I am shaking hands with the President I don t remember what I was saying to him Inact I don t remember much of the afternoon Here s Bertie Wooster talking about Gussie Fink Nottle about to distribute the prizes at Market Snodsbury SchoolWhen I was able to see clearly once I perceived that Gussie was now seated He had his hands on his knees with his elbows out at right angles like a nigger minstrel of the old school about t This dashed difficult problem of where to begin it It s a thing you don t want to go wrong over because one Buck: A Memoir false step and you re sunk I mean if youool about too long at the start trying to establish atmosphere as they call it and all that sort of rot you Oh, the Things They Invented!: All About Great Inventors fail to grip and the customers walk out on you Bertie Wooster in spite of being a silly ass has a way with words Hisirst person narrative is a joy to read it does help that he has PG Wodehouse to write on his behalf He is right of course the irst paragraph of anything is often the Ls in the English language Bertie must deal with the Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize giving the broken engagement of his cousin Angela. ,
This is almost as unny as The Code of the woosters which is saying a lot the Woosters which is saying a lot Code is the unniest book ever written by anybody anywhere The plot isn t important as usual misunderstandings and peevishness disrupt the general mood of an old English country house lovers are parted and social peevishness disrupt the general mood of an old English country house lovers are parted and social are threatened but by the end thanks to the inimitable Jeeves tranuility is restored couples are reunited and most important of all aunts are placated The justly amous climax where a tipsy Gussie Fink Nottle delivers the prize speech at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School may be the most hilarious passage in all of Wodehouse but since it occurs three uarters of the way through the novel I Searching for Robert Johnson feared that the last seventyive pages or so might be something of a letdown I needn t have worried Jeeve s resolution of all the difficult strands of the situation is so uietly effective that I can give it no greater praise than by deeming it in Jeevesian parlance most satisfactory Beginning with a critiue of my own limbs which she said justly enough were nothing to write home about this girl went on to dissect my manners morals intellect general physiue and method of eating asparagus with such acerbity that by the time she had Blood on Silk finished the best you could say of Bertram was that soar as was known he had never actually committed murder or set Buzz: A Graphic Reality Check for Teens Dealing With Drugs and Alcohol fire to an orphan asylum Half of the book is uotable andunny Another half is not uotable but still Honoring the Medicine: The Essential Guide to Native American Healing funny More on this laterBertram Bertie Wooster spent a nice vacation considering he was not working anywhere I am not sure if this trip could be called such in Cannes Upon coming back he had a misfortune of stumbling straight into theollowing mess one engaged couple breaking up one couple being in love with each other but due to their hmm peculiarities yes this is the best word unable to confess their By the Lake of Sleeping Children feelings I have no doubt that you could havelung bricks by the hour in England s most densely populated districts without endangering the safety of a single girl capable of becoming Mrs Augustus Fink Nottle without an anaesthetic Add to this inability of his aunt Dahlia s on her later to get money Bill Carey Rides West/The Town No Guns Could Tame/Bowdrie Rides a Coyote Trail from her husbandor her magazine to replace her gambling loss having to make a speech Erano guerrieri for Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize giving resignation of Aunt Dahlia s genius chief Anatole and you will start getting an idea of the insurmountable difficulties poor Bertie wasacing Like a true Moral Disorder and Other Stories fighter he rushed headlong into all problems trying to untangle them It was easy to guess the outcome of his efforts but you can trust Wodehouse to come up with the most hilarious ones all the time In other words the Bertie was trying the worse the mess becomeI read some of the books of the series before and they neverailed to amuse me This time something clicked or I started reading in the right mood or this is really *The Funniest Book Of *funniest book of series and I laughted out loud non stop people around looking at me the weird way be damned Jeeves I m engagedI hope you will be very happy sirDon t be an ass I m engaged to Miss Bassett At this point I came to what I think is the highlight of the book Let me start with a personal example I had two good aunts I was content Only after reading this novel I realized my life was seriously lacking I need the third aunt Not just anybody but Aunt Dahlia I wonder if she can adopt me He initial exchange of telegrams with Bertie was the Sallies of the Mind first scene that thawed the ice so to say and made me laugh Herirst personal appearance was nothing short of brilliant Am taking legal advice to ascertain whether strangling an idiot nephew counts as murder If it doesn t look out or yourself You can see she cares deeply about her nephew Still not convinced It isn t often that Aunt Dahlia lets her angry passions rise but when she does strong men climb trees and pull them up after them Any other named character was great colorful and unny but Aunt Dahlia out shined them all The story was ridiculous Gumbo: A Celebration of African American Writing funny andull of twists The humor started at page 14 I double checked and never stopped until next to last page Yes this is me reading I said Don t talk rot Old Tom TraversI am not accustomed to talk rot he saidThen or a beginner I said you do it dashed well So regarding the rating this time it was very easy Any book that makes me laugh aloud and uncontrollably is.
