did not like it

* "The Mating Season" mixes four couples before they match. Impersonations abound. This effort, set again in a village manor, with exploits around and beyond, is either weaker or too complicated for me. I confused who was currently attracted to whom, so I skimmed along to the happy ending maneuvered by Jeeves, his master Wooster, and pals.

In this first-person narrative, 'an angel who eats lots of yeast' (disingenuous gal who bubbles with mischievous energy) prods young gadabout Bertie to perform in a local show. Love letters are forged and peculated (pilfered). 'Espièglarie' (frolicsome) flights seldom 'bung' me to google, because the usage in context usually 'socks me on the occiput'. I enjoy soaring 'welkin' (sky) high expansion of my dictionary above minimal plots.
