Wodehouse is the Shakespeare of what he does! I've never read anyone who can build a situation into a heavingly witty outcome better than Wodehouse.

Let go of melancholy and grab a book of P.G.Wodehouse...yes, just grab about any random P.G stuff and roll out laughing your worries out. The man here got more to him than a funny name :D

This book was too quick a read and just the best for quirks and giggles ! Must not be missed by any chance if any one's got a good 15 minutes to spare ! \o/

Archaic. Not as good as his other works - easy read in a doctor's office or MVA.
