    One thought on “Right Ho, Jeeves”

    1. This is almost as funny as The Code of the Woosters, which is saying a lot, since Code is the funniest book ever written by anybody anywhere. The plot isn't important: as usual, misunderstandings and peevishness disrupt the general mood of an old English country house, lovers are parted and social bonds are threatened, but by the end--thanks to the inimitable Jeeves-- tranquility is restored, couples are reunited, and--most important of all--aunts are placated. The justly famous climax where a t [...]

    2. Who needs expensive Freudian psychiatrists when you can have this: The discovery of some toy duck in the soap dish, presumably the property of some former juvenile visitor, contributed not a little to this new and happier frame of mind. What with one thing and another, I hadn't played with toy ducks in my bath for years, and I found the novel experience most invigorating. For the benefit of those interested, I may mention that if you shove the thing under the surface with the sponge and then let [...]

    3. Bertie Wooster takes the reins from his gentleman's gentleman Jeeves, who had everything well enough in hand, and soon everything's gone pear-shaped, if that's the expression I'm looking for. Bertie's well-intentioned schemings upset his aunt and uncle's brilliant French chef, who gives notice, which upsets everyone's gastric juices! Meanwhile his meddling upon a friend's behalf almost divorces Bertie himself from his beloved bachelorhood, egads! When one comes to the realization that they are a [...]

    4. The 2012 re-readGussie Fink-Nottle is in love with Madeline Bassett but can't seem to talk to her. Madeline Bassett is in love with Gussie Fink-Nottle but thinks Bertie Wooster wants to marry her. Bertie's cousin Angela was engaged to Tuppy Glossop but they had a bust-up over whether or not Angela saw a shark. Can Jeeves put them all back together? He might have been able to, had he and Bertie not had a falling out over Bertie's white mess jacket First off, this review will hardly be unbiased. M [...]

    5. In 2012, I was elected the Vice President of our college alumni association here in the UAE. I was to take charge at our annual get-together: at the same event, I presented an ottamthullal, a satirical dance-drama which was a runaway hit. What with all the celebratory euphoria, I imbibed a little too much of the happy juice in the parking lot outside the venue (drinks were not allowed in the hall) and before I knew it, I was pickled to the gills.You can see me with a beatific smile as I took the [...]

    6. “This dashed difficult problem of where to begin it. It's a thing you don't want to go wrong over, because one false step and you're sunk. I mean, if you fool about too long at the start, trying to establish atmosphere, as they call it, and all that sort of rot, you fail to grip and the customers walk out on you.”Bertie Wooster, in spite of being a silly ass, has a way with words. His first person narrative is a joy to read, it does help that he has P.G. Wodehouse to write on his behalf. He [...]

    7. **WOOSTERS' GUIDE** (as opposed to boring old Webster's guide)*Woosters are men of tact, and have a nice sense of host obligations.*Even when displaying the iron hand, Woosters like to keep the thing fairly matey.*When woosters put their hand to the plough, they do not readily sheath the sword.*Woosters are fair minded, and make allowances for men parading through London all night in scarlet tights. (my favorite)*Woosters like to have their story ready.*A Woosters' word is his bond.*Woosters are [...]

    8. This was a delight! Truth be told, Wodehouse saved me during a long and boring meeting yesterday. I was stuck in the auditorium for hours, but luckily I had "Right Ho, Jeeves," downloaded on iBooks. Soon I was smiling and trying not to giggle too loudly.In Right Ho, Bertie Wooster manages to bungle things severely with two different couples who are staying at his aunt's house, and even accidentally gets engaged to a silly girl who talks of fairies and stars: "I don't want to wrong anybody, so I [...]

    9. Every line was perfection. I kept laughing out loud and looking for someone to read bits too, but alas, there was no one who appreciates this the way I do at hand. The real tragedy, though, is realizing that I will never have friends with awesome names like Tuppy Glossop, Pongo Twistleton, and Gussie Fink-Nottle!

    10. Those starting to read P. G. Wodehouse should start with this novel, which is sometimes called BRINKLEY MANOR. It is the immediate predecessor to Wodehouse's most perfect novel, THE CODE OF THE WOOSTERS. He wrote this in his mid-fifties. It was something like his fortieth novel. He literally wrote about seventy novels, all of them extremely light, the vast majority of them humorous. (His very early novels were about cricket-players at prep-school.) RIGHT-HO, JEEVES features P. G. Wodehouse's mos [...]

    11. Another adventure with Jeeves,the butler, and his employer Bertram (Bertie) Wooster,the master.But who is really in charge? And for that matter the smartest? It's very apparent from the beginning and the butler did it.But this isn't a murder mystery.And no one dies here ,just their dignity, are sacrificed.When Bertie comes back to his London place, from Cannes,France,after a vacation of two months(his whole life is a vacation).His Aunt Dahlia insists he come to her country house,Brinkley Court, [...]

    12. So off we go to Brinkley Court for more high japes and adventures. Along the way hearts will be sundered, friendships forged in childhood will be momentarily broken and mentally negligible young men will make complete fools out of themselves. If you’re already aware of the books but can’t quite determine which one this is (after all, they do share very similar plots), then this is the episode with Gussie Fink-Nottle dressed as the devil and Bertie making an eighteen mile round trip on an old [...]

    13. Five stars aren't enough for a book that contains Gussie Fink-Nottle's speech at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School. Any writer who ventures into comedy should read some Wodehouse.

    14. Oh, Bertie. Oh, Tuppy. And oh, oh, Gussie. An engagement to the more delicately nurtured of the species can go a bit rummy under certain circs. Not to mention prize-giving at that bally Market Snodsbury Grammar School. Bertie does his best to save the day, based on his knowing "the psychology of the individual", but as usual his schemes only serve to make chaps go to fires from frying pans. Thank goodness for Jeeves!

    15. "Stimulated by the juice, I believe, men have even been known to ride alligators."With lines like these, it is definitely not difficult to love a Wodehouse book. Right Ho, Jeeves sits right there amongst the best of Wodehouse that includes almost all of his books. :)Right Ho, Jeeves goes on to narrate a story about the suggestively piscine Gussie Fink-Nottle (or as Aunt Dahlia prefers to call him eventually Spink-Bottle, and you will know why!) and his problematic betrothal to Madeline Bassett a [...]

    16. One of the (many) fine Jeeves and Wooster novels from between the two WWs. Certainly takes one away from the newspaper headlines. Numerous chuckles, occasional guffaws. Right ho, indeed.

    17. P.G. Wodehouse is the absolute master of first-person narrative. Bertie's voice in the Jeeves books is one of the greatest achievements in all of comic fiction--absolutely consistent, totally confident, unerringly wrong. Jeeves is the title character, and certainly the greatest butler in literary history, but Bertie is nonpareil. And it's no wonder that the Jeeves books haven't really worked in dramatic form (and I include the very good BBC series with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry) -- without Ber [...]

    18. এ কী একখান বই কিনলাম, সারা শরীর অক্ষত, খালি প্রথম পাতা নাই। কিছু একটা যে নাই, সেটাও আমি বুঝি নাই প্রথমে, বিশ পাতা পরে গিয়ে বুঝেছি।তামাম মুলূকের সবাই জানেন, উডহাউজ হাসাইতে পারে, পদে পদে, পদানুক্র [...]

    19. I saw that it would be fruitless to try to reason with her. Quite plainly, she was not in the vein. Contenting myself, accordingly, with a gesture of loving sympathy, I left the room. Whether she did or did not throw a handsomely bound volume of the Works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson, at me, I am not in a position to say. I had seen it lying on the table beside her, and as I closed the door I remember receiving the impression that some blunt instrument had crashed against the woodwork, but I was fee [...]

    20. The rummy thing about life is that though you feel exhilarated that you've read a wonderful book, you begin to get the wind up your pipe wondering why the dickens you hadn't read anything from this author-chappie ever before

    21. Jeeves, hand me my Thesaurus! This is going to require more than a few superlatives for me to even come close to accurately describing just how brilliant this book is. This is, quite possibly, the funniest book I have ever read and most likely will ever read, what? The humour is astoundingly advanced for its time, and effortlessly eclipses most of the 'comedies' I’ve unwittingly subjected myself to over recent years - television included.P.G. Wodehouse has such consistently amazing prose, wher [...]

    22. I can't believe it's taken me so long to get around to reading any P.G. Wodehouse. Clearly I've been missing out. One of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Bertie Wooster's narrative voice is hysterical! Just marvellous. I'm out to hunt down more!

    23. Just loved it. It took me a little while to get a hang of this type of writing. This kind of writing either gets you totally engrossed or you throw away the book. For me it was the former. Couldn't stop laughing out loud many a times. Try it, be patient,you may love it.

    24. My preference is for the Bertie and Wooster short stories because usually the novels seem to drag a bit in the middle but this one was consistently funny. Loved it.

    25. First, though possibly not foremost, how can you not love an author named Pelham Grenville? In a world of Tonys and Chrises and Ryans, you have to admit that a name such as that inspires a certain confidence in one's authorial voice.Otherwise, it's a typically wonderful Wodehouse novel, with Bertram Wooster mucking about in the affairs of his friend Gussie (and attending the party of a friend named Pongo, GOOD LORD THE NAMES DO ME IN), and of course has to rely on the inimitable Jeeves to sort i [...]

    26. Y'know, this is terrific. Screamingly funny - that speech Fitz-Nottle gives is amazing - and deceptively intricately plotted. It's a puzzle book, right? Our heroes get into what seems like an untenable situation, and the suspense is wondering how Jeeves will fix it, and that's all very cleverly done. Jeeves is sortof a dastardly hero, and Wooster himself is one of the great unreliable narrators.

    27. Right ho, I loved this book :). SO MUCH FUN!(I shall see if I can squeeze the time to write a proper little review sometime. . .)
