E–pub/E–book [Right Ho Jeeves] Ó P.G. Wodehouse
The Balance of George Lucas's Star Wars gThis is almost as funny as The Code of the Woosters which is saying a lot since Code is the funniest book ever written by anybody anywhere The plot isn t important as usual misunderstandings and peevishness disrupt theeneral mood of an old English country house lovers are parted and social bonds 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 famous 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 feared that the last seventy five 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 Lovecraft Country give it noreater 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 Memorii, vol. I-II girl went on to dissect my manners morals intellecteneral physiue and method of eating asparagus with such acerbity that by the time she had finished the best you could say of Bertram was that so far as was known he had never actually committed murder or set fire to an orphan asylum Half of the book is uotable and funny Another half is not uotable but still 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 the following 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 feelings I have no doubt that you could have flung bricks by the hour in England s most densely populated districts without endangering the safety of a single Full Steam Ahead, Felix: Adventures of a famous station cat and her kitten apprentice girl capable of becoming Mrs Augustus Fink Nottle without an anaesthetic Add to this inability of his aunt Dahlia s on her later toet money from her husband for her magazine to replace her ambling loss having to make a speech for Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize iving resignation of Aunt Dahlia s enius chief Anatole and you will start etting an idea of the insurmountable difficulties poor Bertie was facing Like a true fighter he rushed headlong into all problems trying to untangle them It was easy to uess 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 never failed to amuse me This time something clicked or I started reading in the right mood or this is really the funniest book of the 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 ood 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 first scene that thawed the ice so to say and made me laugh Her first 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 for 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 reat colorful and funny but Aunt Dahlia out shined them all The story was ridiculous funny and full 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
not accustomed to talk he saidThen for 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

Ng shoes writing reviews and whatnot What rot these stories are I d say I have a F. Scott Fitzgerald good mind to complain except that I don t actually have aood mind Right Ho Jeeves starts off comfortably enough with Bertie having tea in bed and chatting with super butler valet Jeeves about his newt loving friend Gussie Fink Nottle suddenly he is notified in a telegram that a V shaped rumminess has manifested itself from the direction of Worcestershire at Brinkley Court where his aunt Dahlia resides It seems his cousin Angela Travers has broken her engagement with his pal Tuppy Glossop and his aunt Dahlia is having trouble financing her magazine The sort of rummy problems Jeeves can solve in a jiffy except that Bertie is on the outs with Jeeves over a mess jacket with brass buttons so he resolves to sort out these difficulties himself Much hilarity ensues featuring Bertie The Devil Hath Been Raised: A Documentary History of the Salem Village Witchcraft Outbreak of March 1692; Together With a Collection of Newly Located and Gathered Witchcraft Documents getting himself engaged to a Manic Pixie Dream Girl Brinkley Court s French chef Anatole shaking a few fists at Gussie clinging to a roof for dear life fire alarmsoing off and many other lunatic incidents Right Ho Jeeves is a little unusual in that it is an actual novel rather than a collection of short stories like the other Jeeves books I have read The subplots tie in together surprisingly well so the book does not feel overly episodic Throughout the book the well meaning Bertie comes up with several wild schemes to alleviate his friends problems Unfortunately he cannot plan than two steps ahead and the second step is usually wrong As with most Wodehouse s books there is no real substance to the plot you read his books for the extraordinary language hilarious dialogue and lovable characters Wodehouse does pull out a nice little twist at the end though with Jeeves applying his psychology of the individual to save the dayWodehouse s books are all feel ood books that you pick up when you feel a little down they will soon start to restore your brain tissues They are also ideal if you need a change of pace from serious fiction I ll be dashed if I can think of anything else to say What I ll do is I ll bung in some uotes instead to beef up the reviewTinkerty tonk The Jeeves Wooster television series is extremely diverting sir If you have not had the pleasure might I venture to suggest that you endeavour to acuire the DVD forthwith Thank you sirNotes Audiobook credit Read with appropriate jolliness by smashing cove Mark Nelson American chap and accent but spiffing fellow whose enjoyment of the book is uite infectious Bonus points for Anatole s accented dialogue Download from Librivox I am lad nobody has to steal anything and try to put it back this time one of Wodehouse s favorite plot devicesuotes Elouent No it s not elouent Elusive No it s not elusive It s on the tip of my tongue Begins with an e and means being a jolly sight too cleverElaborate sir Jeeves doesn t have to open doors He s like one of those birds in India who bung their astral bodies about the chaps I mean who having one into thin air in Bombay reassemble the parts and appear two minutes later in Calcutta Only some such theory will account for the fact that he s not there one moment and is there the next He just seems to float from Spot A to Spot B like some form of as I consider that of all the dashed silly drivelling ideas I ever heard in my puff this is the most blithering and futile I read it backwards I read it forwards As a matter of fact I have a sort of recollection of even smelling it But it still baffled me He was one of those timid obseuious teacup passing thin bread and butter offering yes men I wish there was something else you could call him except Uncle Tom said Aunt Dahlia a little testily Every time you do it I expect to see him turn black and start playing the banjo He barked raspingly as if he were having trouble with the tonsils of the soul Gah Too many reat uotes to put in just read the whole book why don t youBung oh Who needs expensive Freudian psychiatrists when you can have this The discovery of some toy duck in the soap dish presumably the property of some former juvenile visitor contributed not a little to this new and happier frame of mind What with one thing and another I hadn t played with toy ducks in my bath for years and I found the novel experience most invigorating For the benefit of those interested I may mention that if you shove the thing under the surface with the sponge and then let it o it shoots out of the water in a manner calculated to divert the most careworn Ten minutes of
this and I was enabled to return to the bedchamber muchand I was enabled to return to the bedchamber much merry old Bertram Old Bertram is in dire need of moral bracing since one of his recurring spats over wardrobe with his trusted man Jeeves has left him without valuable advice just when he needed it most Valiant efforts to solve the problems of his friends and family Buddhism: Introducing the Buddhist Experience gathered at Brinkley Court on his own are only serving to further push him deeper into the soup Bertie blames it on bad luck and on the French If I hadn tone to Cannes I shouldn t have met the Bassett or bought that white mess jacket and Angela wouldn t have met her shark and Aunt Dahlia wouldn t have played baccarat If you want to find the connection between sharks white mess jackets baccarat devil s costumes newts and French cooking you have come to the right place at Brinkley Court Be careful though of Bertie s clever plans and keep Gussie Fink Nottle away from the strong spirits As his Aunt Dahlia rather cruelly but truthfully puts it You may well say Golly Anatole God s ift to the astric juices one like the dew off the petal of a rose all through your idiocy After reading four or five Jeeves short stories collections in a row I was just in the right disposition for a substantial fare and the master didn t disappoint Right Ho Jeeves is and the master didn t disappoint Right Ho Jeeves is of Wodehouse s best novels showcasing his talent to weave together several storylines and to ramp up the mischief and hijinks to stratospheric levels where even the imperturbable entleman s A Grant County Collection: Indelible, Faithless and Skin Privilege gentleman Jeeves would be hard put to come up with a solution Some of the faces are familiar as are some of the romantic missteps that crop up in almost every Wodehouse story but there is something about how the different characters come together and interact that make me appreciate the long form better than the above mentioned short stories This splittig of the troubles into four or five separate incidents makes it a little harder to pick a main plot line in the novel but judging by screen time and by the laughter meter I would pick August Fink Nottle as the leader of the pack This old school friend of Bertie this newt nuzzling blister as he is or less affectionately referred to has fallen in love And because he is pathologically shy and accident prone he appeals to Jeeves as ao between As you might remember Jeeves and Bertie had a tiff over a dinner jacket so Bertie takes reluctantly the role of Cupid A splendid chap of course in many ways courteous amiable and just the fellow to tell you what to do till the doctor came if you had a sick newt on your hands but uite obviously not of Mendelssohn s March timber I have no doubt that you could have flung bricks by the hour in England s most densely populated districts without endangering the safety of a single irl capable of becoming Mrs Augustus Fink Nottle without an anaesthetic Yet such a irl resides
