Absolutely hilarious. Wodehouse at his best! The book starts with our lovable, idiotic narrator, Bertie, taking up the banjolele. Jeeves is then faced with two options: 1) to continue in his employment listening to that racket or 2) heading into the unemployed life. Like any intelligent man, Jeeves, after Bertie stubbornly refuses to give up playing his instrument, leaves his service. He is quickly scooped up by Bertie’s friend, Chuffy, however, and continues to help Bertie throughout the novel as Bertie, at the protest of his neighbours, moves to the country and tries to play matchmaker between his friends. Best parts for me included Bertie getting woken up/tackled to the ground numerous times by the Police and then declared as insane for sleeping in a shed. And then there was Bertie being mistaken as the devil by his new drunken employee and being charged at with a knife as the result. And what’s a Wooster and Jeeves story without everything falling perfectly in place at the end? Good fun and a lot of laughs. Definitely one for the “favourite books” shelf.

Quotes Martha Liked

P.G. Wodehouse
“I mean, if you're asking a fellow to come out of a room so that you can dismember him with a carving knife, it's absurd to tack a 'sir' on to every sentence. The two things don't go together.”
P.G. Wodehouse, Thank You, Jeeves
