P. G. Wodehouse: Jeeves in the Offing


Jeeves in the Offing is my second P. G. Wodehouse novel and obviously my second Jeeves and Wooster novel too.
It has exactly 200 pages and I got it from bol.com.

 “A Bertie and Jeeves classic, featuring a cow-creamer, the redheaded Miss Wickham, and the formidable schoolmaster Aubrey Upjohn. Jeeves is infallible. Jeeves is indispensable. Unfortunately, in How Right You Are, Jeeves, he is also in absentia. In this wonderful slice of Woosterian mayhem, Bertie has sent that prince among gentlemen's gentlemen off on his annual vacation. Soon, drowning dachshunds, broken engagements, and inextricable complications lead to the only possible conclusion: "We must put our trust in a higher power. Go and fetch Jeeves!" ”

Very enjoyable and pure, relaxing fun to read.Light-hearted, fast and charming. Funny, stupid situations, hilarious nicknames, butchered French, a complete idiot Wooster and Murphy’s law.

But I missed Jeeves and because of that I liked this novel less then Stiff Upper Lip.

Still, an enjoyable read.

Happy reading!
