    THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT FROM THE READ YOURSELF HAPPY FOUNDATION Are you feeling sad, depressed, not quite yourself Did your youngest child decide to make paper airplanes out of the pages of your 1st Edition copy of Lord of the Rings Did the brilliantly astute network asshats cancel your favorite television show in favor of a 22 part documentary on the Brittany Spears Comeback Tour hosted by Paula Abdul Did the video of the unfortunate incident at your office picnic recently [...]

    More tales of woe for Bertie Wooster, but this time he s on his own with no Jeeves to get him out of the soup Perhaps that s why I felt this volume though probably as good as the rest didn t quite resonate the way others have Wooster without Jeeves is like Laurel without Hardy, Abbot sans Costello The reason these books work is that they are a duo, they play off of one another Wooster needs Jeeves, and in a way, Jeeves needs Wooster least for comedic purposes But the good thing about reading Wod [...]

    For the past couple of years, the name P G Wodehouse kept popping up in interviews and articles about some of my favorite people most notably Hugh Laurie and Neil Gaiman, among others They praised him as THE master of British comedy Since I admittedly like my comedy British, I decided it was time to give Wodehouse a try The thing with Wodehouse is that he creeps up on you During the first few chapters, I thought, What s all the fuss about There is some admittedly clever language and the strange [...]

    Sublime, splendid, superb in short, PG perfectionP.G Wodehouse is the funniest writer of the past century Wodehouse defies superlatives He is, quite simply, the best comedic writer to ever put pen to paper I am a confirmed Wodehousian and revel in the man s comedic genius I have read numerous books by the great man and all, to one degree or another, are a delight I read Thank You, Jeeves for my book group and, once I had started, I realised this was the third time I d read it It was like meeting [...]

    PG Wodehouse has been on my list of authors to read for ages, and my only complaint is that I waited so long to give him a try Before picking up Thank You, Jeeves, I had read several of the short stories that introduced the world to the indomitable literary pairing of Bertram Wooster and his faithful valet Jeeves From the first page of the earliest story, Extricating Old Gussie, I knew I had found a series that would give me endless hours of cozy, friendly entertainment in the months and years t [...]

    Re reading Wodehouse as you get older, you can t help but notice how repetitive the plots are The same tropes, all so very typically him But, it s all good fun The turn of phrase especially and so many archaic expressions Except this has got to be one of the most racist of his books Never mind the times It was the twenties and the thirties in the last century I get that Even so, this is one of the better plots, with everything fitting nicely into its compartments and all neatly wrapped up like t [...]

  10. Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*

    EXCERPT About three months before, noting a certain liveliness in my Aunt Agatha, I had deemed it prudent to pop across to New York for a space to give her time to blow over And about halfway through my first week there, in the course of a beano of some description at the Sherry Netherland, I made the acquaintance of Pauline Stoker She got right in among me Her beauty maddened me like wine THE BLURB Thank You, Jeeves is the first novel to feature the incomparable valet Jeeves and his hapless cha [...]

    And so we come to the first of Jeeves and Wooster novels.I wonder how nervous PG Wodehouse was when he sat down to write this book After all, here he had characters who had proven their worth in short stories, but would the material really stretch far enough for a whole novel Could he spin out a plot that would sustain such a length Was there a danger of the whole thing becoming episodic, a series of short stories joined together Old P.G always came across as a jovial and sanguine individual, bu [...]

    You know, the longer I live, the I feel that the great wheeze in life is to be jolly well sure what you want and not let yourself be put off by pals who think they know better than you do Bertie Wooster has become enamoured of the banjolele but is getting nothing but grief from his neighbours and his valet Jeeves After a severe disagreement about the instrument causes Jeeves to leave his service, Bertie departs for the country to practice in peace He gets caught up in the affairs of his good fr [...]

  13. Bruce

    Thank You, Jeeves, published in 1935, was the first novel length book by Wodehouse relating the adventures of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, although he had written many short stories about these characters previously, and, while he subsequently wrote other novels about them, this one seems unique Yes, the tried and true Wodehouse plot conventions are present Bertie tries to escape marital entanglement while he facilitates the marriage of two of his close friends he runs afoul of a brusk and antipat [...]

  14. Ben Loory

    In my experience, there are two kinds of elderly American One, the stout and horn rimmed, is matiness itself He greets you as if you were a favorite son, starts agitating the cocktail shaker before you know where you are, slips a couple into you with a merry laugh, claps you on the back, tells you a dialect story about two Irishmen named Pat and Mike, and, in a word, makes life one grand, sweet song.The other, which runs a good deal to the cold, grey stare and the square jaw, seems to view the E [...]

    Thank you, Jeeves and Bertie You two make my day brighter Of course, Jeeves is a lovable man, but Bertie the man whom I adore He has a generous heart and cherish his friendship Chuffy should appreciate Bertie s kind behavior After all, who labors much for friend s courtship This novel is hilariously funny but the unshakable bond of Jeeves and Bertie is very touching.

  16. Martha

    Absolutely hilarious Wodehouse at his best The book starts with our lovable, idiotic narrator, Bertie, taking up the banjolele Jeeves is then faced with two options 1 to continue in his employment listening to that racket or 2 heading into the unemployed life Like any intelligent man, Jeeves, after Bertie stubbornly refuses to give up playing his instrument, leaves his service He is quickly scooped up by Bertie s friend, Chuffy, however, and continues to help Bertie throughout the novel as Berti [...]

    This is the book I enjoyed least of the Jeeves books If this title was the first one written then the writing has gotten better since fortunately Thank you, Jeeves was hard to follow, as in, it seemed kind of pointless I didn t like that the characters dropped the n bomb quite a few times and wore blackface It killed the plot for me because it wasn t remotely necessary to the story only there to provide some comic relief and in poor taste at that That said, in context it is historical evidence o [...]

    Crossposted from my blogIt s that time of year again it s summer, it s sunny, and I have exams coming up which means lying out on the lawn with a pile of revision, a cold drink, and a Jeeves and Wooster book onside to de stress between doses of Cold War politics Add to that the company of my beautiful old dog, take away the revision, replace the non alcholic drink with a pitcher of Pimms and it s damn close to the perfect way to spend the summer And as such I tend to think Stephen Fry is bang on [...]

  19. Ian Wood

    Thank you, Jeeves is the first of the Jeeves novels and is indeed a pippin The translation of the actors in short stories to the larger frame of a novel is not always a happy transition but Wodehouse takes it his stride Where previously Bertie Wooster would complicate a problem prior to taking it to Jeeves to sort he now mixes up three problems into about nine which Jeeves then brings to a conclusion with a happy ever after for everyone except the hapless narrator.Jeeves has left Bertie s employ [...]

  20. Steven Harbin

    This is first Jeeves and Bertie Wooster novel Wodehouse wrote and was published in 1934 Previously Jeeves appeared only in various short stories It s a usual mix of humor and mix up and has lots of characters from the stories make a re appearance, such as Roderick Glossup a psychiatrist who Bertie often describes as a looney Doctor along with beautiful and head strong Pauline Stoker one of Bertie s numerous former fiancees and her equally strong willed father, who of course doesn t think much of [...]

    p.g wodehouse s prose is sublime just look at how this book starts I was a shade perturbed Nothing to signify, really, but still just a spot concerned As I sat in the old flat, idly touching the strings of my banjolele, an instrument to which I had become greatly addicted of late, you couldn t have said that the brow was actually furrowed, and yet, on the other hand, you couldn t have stated absolutely that it wasn t Perhaps the word pensive about covers it It seemed to me that a situation fraug [...]

    Allora com stata la lettura di questo ennesimo autore umoristico inglese osannato e pluripubblicato Mmmppffh baaah, bof, ehhhh maah Senti, ti do un consiglio da amico basta con lo humor inglese Tanto non lo capisci E in pi ti senti anche una deficiente perch non ti fa ridere Ma possibile dico, che solo io non rido Beh, d altronde tu non ridi nemmeno con, che so, Fantozzi, Tomas Milian No in effetti Anzi mi innervosiscono Per con Maximus, il cavallo di Rapunzel, mi sono spatasciata dalle risate E [...]

    This is my first exposure to Jeeves and Wooster, and I have to say, for one of the novels people keep telling me isn t the best, it s pretty damned good I ll confess it didn t make me laugh aloud, but I was smiling the entire time I read it I love Jeeves who must be a sort of cousin to Lord Peter s Bunter and the entire silly situation Bertie Wooster manages to get himself into And it s all so impeccably written, too.Note It is inevitably of its time, however, and the references to negroes and t [...]

  24. Trevor

    What ho This is the first of the full length books and a magnificent start I particularly liked the introduction by Wodehouse concerning his use of a recording device to save him time in writing the book as opposed to dictating it to a secretary which he could never bring himself to do It reminded me very much of that scene in The Singing Detective Well question mark, Well exclamation mark, He signed question mark And so on The stuff about there being two kinds of American business men is also t [...]

    Started to listen to this, but couldn t deal with the repeated use of the n word in referencing a musical group Figured there would be uses of the word as the book went on as it seemed Bertie was excited about them, but I just couldn t take it Wondered how the audio book reader managed to do it Sorry as I liked the idea of Jeeves quitting and wanted to see where Wodehouse took that plot thread I m now afraid to take on another Wodehouse for fear of of this Did enjoy the first two I listened to [...]
