Originally published in 1946, Joy in the Morning is another breezy Jeeves and Wooster story. There are near-miss engagements, scheming, unlucky coincidences, shouting from elderly relatives, one burned down house, a hockey stick in the night, and lots and lots of witty language. I already knew from ...

two starsgranted, it's funny, really funny. however, it's also true that wodehouse should be imbibed sparingly. listening this book as continuous background noise made me think that wodehouse is a real sadist. poor bertie. i won't be surprised if tom and jerry were inspired by bertie and jeeves.

Valet to bumbling aristocrat Bertie Wooster, Jeeves is continually helping his employer out of scrapes. In this debut novel, Wooster's lovesick pal Bingo Little decides to marry and enlists ...

Just re-read it and of course loved it. The irrepressible Lord Ickenham is a hoot, never letting circumstances defeat him because he knows a bald-faced lie trumps anything, especially among the dim-witted inhabitants of Blanding Castle. It had been so long since I'd read it, I had forgotten Horace D...

I think wodehouse may be one of those authors who gets repetitive fairly quickly. I space out his books in my reading rotation, so it's been several months since I last visited with Bertie and jeeves, and it still felt incredibly predictable. I guess it's possible that I had already read it, but th...

Apparently I’m in the minority here, but I wasn’t that thrilled by this installment in the Jeeves and Bertie Wooster saga. Though it is only the second Jeeves novel, it comes about 20 years into P.G. Wodehouse’s publishing career, but it still felt rather immature. The story is very episodic, leapfr...
