A superb introduction to the world of Jeeves and Wooster: in fact, contrary to what you might think by scanning the titles of the Jeeves books, it is this work that contains the hallowed moment when Jeeves and Wooster first join forces. Recommended not only as a generally good work of fiction but also as one's first Jeeves and Wooster book.

The stories feel a bit formulaic after a while: Wooster makes style decision against Jeeves' taste, Wooster or his friend gets into a bind, Jeeves comes up with a clever way to bail them out of it, Wooster recants his poor style decision. But, as is often the case with Mr. Wodehouse's writing, it's just so infectiously fun to read that you don't really care about the formula. It's sort of like that television program you watch regularly: at this point, you've probably figured out how the story arc is going to go, but the execution is so arresting that you continue to find it enjoyable.
