    1. The Inimitable Jeeves 1923 is the first full length book completely devoted to Jeeves and Wooster My Man Jeeves, only half Jeeves, featured the proto Wooster Reggie Pepper , and my sense is that neither the gentleman s gentleman, nor his gentleman, has reached perfection here Jeeves is less Olympian, perhaps a tad too familiar with Bertie, Bingo and their betting friends, and Wooster s narrative voice lacks that miraculous unity of brainless superficiality and incisive social obse [...]


    2. We Woosters do not lightly forget At least, we do some things appointments, and people s birthdays, and letters to post, and all that but not an absolutely bally insult like the above Absolutely hilarious The adventures of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves are narrated by Wodehouse with his natural flair and brilliantly fun filled manner P.G Wodehouse shows off his comic genius in this timeless funny classic.If you are feeling down then i would recommend a dose of Wodehouse, which will refr [...]


    3. Now you know me, Jeeves, I said I am no expert on what Honoria likes to call literature I believe I would concur in that judgement, Jeeves agreed, and I fancied I saw his left eyebrow twitch slightly But I was not to be put off by the blighter s lack of enthusiasm Hang it all, Jeeves I continued You don t need to be an expert to see that this book is head and shoulders above above well I paused, for some reason at a loss for a suitable comparison Perhaps you are referring t Now you know me, Jeev [...]


    4. 3.5 starsThe first book in the series is all about Wooster and Jeeves whereas this book is about Bingo and Jeeves, Bingo and Wooster, well Bingo in general Am I complaining NO.I thoroughly enjoyed all the idiocracies that Bingo got into.There is an apt statement that describes Bingo But there s no reticence about Bingo He always reminds me of the hero of a musical comedy who takes the centre of the stage, gathers the boys around him in a circle, and tells them all about his love 3 [...]


    5. This is the eel s eyebrows exclaims Bingo at one moment, and I would apply the comment to this second collection of stories featuring laid back boulevardier Bertie Wooster and his brainy valet Jeeves I found it better structured and an improvement over the debut in My Man Jeeves Firstly, there are 11 short stories instead of four, and secondly, these stories are sequential, following a common plotline involving the romantic entanglements of Bingo Little, an old school friend of Bertie This is th [...]


    6. At last, I have met Bertie Wooster and his man Jeeves They are an amusing pair Wodehouse s writing is a pleasure to read, although I don t think I m up to plunging into the next book right away For me, it will be most effective in smaller doses.I have to wonder if this was where the Monty Python group got their first ideas for the Upper Class Twit of the Year sketches The dim witted Bertie and the lovelorn Bingo would be helpless without the well informed Jeeves, who sorts out their various At l [...]
