The Adventures of Sally

by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

I have read a lot of Wodehouse books and this one is typical. It is good, but not one of his best. It is not in any of his series and, as best I remember, its characters did not overlap with any of his other books.

Great for Wodehouse fans. For non-Wodehouse fans, I would suggest starting with another book: Something Fresh & A Damsel in Distress are two good ones.

A Damsel in Distress

by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

This is hilarious. It is my favorite non-Jeeves & Wooster novel by Wodehouse. The setting is a bit dated since this was written almost 100 years ago, but that does not detract form the story.

I think the part, early in the book, where he sees “the girl in the brown dress” is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.

This book was changed greatly and made into a film will Burns & Allen. I think the book is better.

Something New

by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

This is an excellent early novel by Wodehouse, very funny. The plot & characters are fun & interesting. It also gives a good idea of the servants, etiquette, etc. in a "country house" at the time. I found it interesting & even humorous how much the servants cared about rank amongst themselves.

This is a good introduction to Wodehouse.
