Having made a bitter enemy of Daniel Brewster, owner of New York's Hotel Cosmopolis, Archie Moffam (fresh from England) checks out and heads south where he woos and weds one Lucille Brewster before returning to the Hotel Cosmopolis...
pened to him.
"Honestly, old bean--I mean, dear old thing,--I mean, darling," said Archie, "I can't believe it!"
"What I mean is, I can't understand why you should have married a blighter like me."
Lucille's eyes opened. She squeezed his hand.
"Why, you're the most wonderful thing in the world, precious!-- Surely you know that?"
"Absolutely escaped my notice. Are you sure?"
"Of course I'm sure! You wonder-child! Nobody could see you without loving you!"
Archie heaved an ecstatic sigh. Then a thought crossed his mind. It was a thought which frequently came to mar his bliss.
"I say, I wonder if your father will think that!"

Being a huge fan of Wodehouse novels, I found this book a little disappointing. It is really a collection of short stories tied together with a thread of a plot. Those that like Jeeves and the other short stories may appreciate it more, but if you're looking to sink into a good novel, read his others first.
Although I enjoyed this book I found it slightly disjointed. Although there was an underlying theme, some chapters stood on their somewhat, meaning the story was somewhat shallow. It is still an enjoyable book and is very easy to pick up.
I loved this book. I am a big Wodehouse fan. This work is very much like my favorites Bertie Wooster and Jeeves. Archie is a clone for Bertie except he is poor sot who married a very rich girl. He is always bumbling around into one humorous situation after another just like Bertie Wooster. No Jeeves to help him out though, just his good luck and fortune. I think these stories were a precursor to Bertie. I smiled throughout the book and could not stop reading it.
