P. G. Wodehouse: Much Obliged, Jeeves

Hi

Much Obliged, Jeeves is another novel in the Jeeves and Wooster series by P. G. Wodehouse.
The books are all tiny and this one is no exception counting only 203 pages.

“While staying with his Aunt Dahlia to help out in the election at Market Snodsbury, Bertie Wooster comes up against the familiar horrors of Florence Craye, his former fiancee, and Roderick Spode, head of the Black Shorts, in a plot tangle from which, as usual, only the ingenuity of Jeeves can save him.”

I can just see these scenes right before my eyes and hear the voices in my head. Wodehouse has a very descriptive style.
The plot is a bit dull and weak but it’s also funny, full of coincidences and happy accidents.
Bertie is as sweet and funny as ever while stumbling through it all.
Jeeves is witty as usual.
And he has a first name! Breath people, don’t forget to breath.

I liked it; this is perfect, easy to read entertainment.

Happy reading!
