Those look like fun, Christine! I'm interested in reading either one of these. Btw, I really enjoyed our January read Death at the Excelsior and Other Stories.

Christine | 3 comments Hi Hunter. I'm glad you really liked Death at the Excelsior and Other Stories. Maybe I need to expand my view of Wodehouse but I only really enjoyed the Bertie and Jeeves stories. What is your opinion of Reggie Pepper? I find him to be very Bertie-esque and let's not forget that Jeeves first name is Reginald. This book was early Wodehouse and I think he was still finding his characters. Looking forward to your opinion.

Christine, I thought Reggie Pepper was a scream. Oh, I laughed. Ridiculous fun was he. My favorites in the collection were the two Jeeves stories and the two Reggie P. tales. I agree with you about him finding his way through these stories (and I saw a lot of Jeeves omniscience in the character Ms. Snyder in the title story).

And btw, I had no idea that Jeeves first name was Reginald. :) Glad to know that. I hope all's well with you these days!
