bookshelves: humor, novel
Recommended for: everyone
Read in January, 1977

This book is simply too, too. Too funny, Too farcical. Too absurdly well-written to leave on the shelf. Bertie Wooster, with his affably distracted manner is the perfect foil for the all-knowing, keenly-perceptive Jeeves.

Wodehouse uses his sharp eye to draw down upon a cast of characters who, for the most part, would be insufferable pricks without Bertie there to sashay though the lot, mucking things up. When the supposed theft of a silver cow creamer is the weightiest aspect of the story, one may conclude that life is, indeed, a garden party for the Woosters and their compatriots.
