Right Ho, Jeeves (Jeeves, #6)

By P.G. Wodehouse

Rating: 5 stars

You know what they say about the best laid plans of Bertie Wooster [1:]? So when Madeline Basset ends up accidentally engaged to Bertie instead of Gussie Fink-Nottle, his cousin Angela breaks up with Tuppy Glossop and the finest chef in England threatens to leave his Aunt Dahlia, it’s up to Jeeves to untangle the knots and ensure that everything gets sorted out.

A couple of episodes of the Jeeves and Wooster TV series were based on this book but it’s nice to see it in its full unabridged glory. I find Wodehouse eminently readable and great fun to come back to. His characters are obviously parodies but they capture the upper classes of the early 20th century so well. I love this stuff.

[1:] If not, here’s a hint
