When Jeeves suggests dreamy, soulful Gussie Fink-Nottle don scarlet tights and a false beard in his bid to capture the affections of Madeline Bassett, Bertie Wooster decides matters have definitely got out of hand, especially when it comes to a disagreement over a certain white mess jacket with brass buttons! Taking Jeeves off the case, he embarks on a plan of his own to bring Madeline and Gussie together. But when things go disastrously wrong who can Bertie turn to?

Show Excerpt

ou might call a perfect harmony had prevailed. Friendly gossip between employer and employed, and everything as sweet as a nut. But at this juncture, I regret to say, there was an unpleasant switch. The atmosphere suddenly changed, the storm clouds began to gather, and before we knew where we were, the jarring note had come bounding on the scene. I have known this to happen before in the Wooster home.

The first intimation I had that things were about to hot up was a pained and disapproving cough from the neighbourhood of the carpet. For, during the above exchanges, I should explain, while I, having dried the frame, had been dressing in a leisurely manner, donning here a sock, there a shoe, and gradually climbing into the vest, the shirt, the tie, and the knee-length, Jeeves had been down on the lower level, unpacking my effects.

He now rose, holding a white object. And at the sight of it, I realized that another of our domestic crises had arrived, another of those unfortunate clashes of will bet

Despite the popularity, the Jeeves stories are not my favorite of Wodehouse and I love his romantic novels so much more. Jeeves and Wooster were entertaining enough for me to read both this and My Man Jeeves, but definitely not the best of Wodehouse in my opinion.

Great book, the ever resourceful and wise Jeeves is such a classic character. Bertie's attempts at playing cupid are very amusing and it's all described in such a charming way you can't help but love this book.

I agree - one of Wodehouse' best efforts. I have read it several times but I enjoyed it most after seeing the British TV series based on this book. Excellent humor.

Yes, I think Wodehouse was a genius writer, his Jeeves & Wooster books is somthing unsurpassable.
But folks, there is a common misteke that you make, Jeeves was not a Bertie's butler but his valet.

One of the funniest books I've ever read. Wodehouse employs his vivid imagination with his brilliant dialog to lampoon the British upper crust.

Here, Bertie Wooster, the wealthy idler, tries his hand at helping his friends solve their relationship problems while Jeeves, his butler with extraordinary intelligence and insight, provides commentary.

This is a laugh-out-loud book. Enjoy
