[KINDLE] ✽ Much Obliged, Jeeves Author P.G. Wodehouse – 1sm.info

Much Obliged, Jeeves I was going through the Jeeves Wooster list on my GR bookshelf and found that I had missed out adding this book I think this is the last in the series, where Bertie is finally rid of the danger of getting married to either the intellectual Florence Craye or the maudlin Madeline hey, that rhymes.But the crux of this story is an election in Market Snodsbury, and how the journal detailing the exploits of various gentlemen recorded faithfully by their valets and kept securely at the butlers and valets club, the Junior Ganymede becomes central to its outcome The tome in question is stolen by a renegade valet and creates Either you like Bertie Wooster and Jeeves or you don t There isn t much in between This is not the first of these books I have read but the first Wodehouse that I have reviewed.The gifted Bernard Cornwell many of whose books I have reviewed was recently quoted as saying that Wodehouse wrote the most English novels ever written I would add that he did so while skewering many of the class lines, traditions and manners that we find so familiar.It can be argued that one Wooster and Jeeves is much like the next and it s true that Wodehouse has only rearranged the furniture among a limited number of plot elements to wit Wooster is requested to do what turns out to be an impossible favor for a chumWooster is stuck with an impossible relativeWooster finds himself about to marry an impossible womanAnd eventually Jeeves is th P.G Wodehouse was ninety years old when Much Obliged, Jeeves was published in 1971 and it is the penultimate Jeeves and Wooster novel This was the first time I had read this particular Wodehouse book One chapter in and it was like being with old friends Just sublime You probably don t need me to tell you that P.G Wodehouse is the funniest writer of the past century Wodehouse defies superlatives He is, quite simply, the best comedic writer to ever put pen to paper I am a confirmed Wodehousian and revel in the man s comedic genius I have read numerous books by the great man and all, to one degree or another, are a delight Much Obliged, Jeeves contains all the familiar tropes but is no less entrancing for that Wooster blunders around, narrowly avoiding engagements that threaten his bachelor lifestyle whilst Jeeves dispenses his learning, bon mots and quiet wit, whilst simultaneou Good lord, Jeeves has a first name No, don t just skip right by that sentence Really take a minute JEEVES HAS A FIRST NAME It never even occurred to me that he might It doesn t seem like the sort of possession Jeeves would own I feel as if I d caught him cuddling a Beanie Baby or something Honestly, this would have been worth reading just to discover this little bit of trivia, but even without that it s a fine Wodehousian romp not my favorite of the W Surely below par for something in the Jeeves series May be because the master wrote this in his nineties, he couldn t match his own towering standards There is always a certain level of repetition in Wodehouse s plots, but in this one it was unusually high Wodehouse s usual bubbling vigour was less pronounced, the comic possibilities were under explored, there was an over reliance on Bertie s stammering and word groping, and even some of his trademark daft turns of phrase seemed subdued and laborious In many parts The book read like a montage to Bertie and Jeeves with a handful of references to the best parts of their previous adventures And yet, it has you in splits like any good thing in ration.Bertie wakes up on top of the world, with a rainbow between his shoulders And we know thunderstorm is imminent Bertie s pal Ginger is contesting elections Bertie s safely engaged lady t Much Obliged, Jeeves first published in 1971 in the UK and
