    Jeeves was right, but that title is wrong The statement in title form, How Right You Are, Jeeves does two things It tells you that Jeeves is going to offer up correct advice, as per usual It also leads you to believe that Jeeves will play a large role in said title, and that is not the case They should ve stuck with the alternate title Jeeves in the Offing Jeeves is Bertie Wooster s manservant Jeeves has extracted Bertie from many a mishap When B

    In the offing, indeed Where the hell is Jeeves Jeeves is Bertie Wooster s manservant Jeeves has extracted Bertie from many a mishap When Bertie is without Jeeves, he often finds himself neck deep in the soup When a Jeeves Wooster book is without Jeeves, the book often drowns in said soup Jeeves in the Offing is not one of P.G Wodehouse s best It lacks the wit and fun that fill the pages in spades when both Bertie and Jeeves are doling out the words In th

    One of those books in the Jeeves series in which young, bounding Bertie has to fend for himself, since Jeeves is off on vacation The plot borrows several elements from previous Jeeves books, but is unputdownable all the same due to the usual comic Woosterisms, the highlight being his comic befriending of the loony doctor of old, Roderick Glossop.

    As a fan, one strolls away from the later Jeeves although troubled might be over stating things somewhat You see there are still a lot of incredibly good jokes in these latter Jeeves Wooster novels, there s a lot of laughter on the pages, one is never going to feel short changed on the comedy front As a fan, one strolls away from the later Jeeves Wooster novels with one s hands deep in one s pocket and a look across one s face which can only can be described as perturbed Okay, confused and tro

    Another great farce Twists and turns with Wooster reading he is engaged and his friend Kipper trying to marry the lovely vermillion head who gets him in an entanglement Funny throughout with his aunt, cow creamer and his old school master from the past Thankfully Jeeves solves all their problems albeit Bertie ending up looking like a loon.
