A full cast of Wodehouse creations—including tyrannical relatives, beastly acquaintances, demon children, and literary fatheads—return for further near catastrophes and sparkling comedy A Gentleman of Leisure is a comic novel dedicated to Douglas Fairbanks—who starred in the film version—and concerns a young man, his love life, and a burglary. Famiiliar Wodehouse characters from both sides of the ocean make appearances. Meanwhile, in Hot Water, J. Wellington Gedge is the man who has everything—but finds himself caught in a series of international events which will, if he doesn't put a stop to it, leave him wearing the sissy uniform of the American ambassador to Paris. Summer Moonshine involves Sir Buckstone Abbott trying to sell what is probably the ugliest home in England, as well as a complicated love quadrangle and Carry On, Jeeves is a collection of stories in which Jeeves take charge and a familiar bevy of individuals appeal to him to solve their problems—and are never disappointed.

I finally gave Wodehouse a try. See my reaction in my full review: http://youtu.be/CcH1CqDltjQ
Carry on, Jeeves (Jeeves #3) by P.G. Wodehouse My rating: 5 of 5 stars I read this one in a couple of days. It's a collection of 10 stories. The first one has how Jeeves joined Wooster's service, which is very interesting. Most of the other stories take place in New York. The last one is really ...
How many times I read, heard and seen about Jeeves since I moved to the UK?Quite a lot. And yet I had never tried to have a formal introduction to the fellow, so far.Now, the problem was that I didn't know where to start with Jeeves.There is simply too much that P.G Wodehouse wrote about this guy an...
