The Girl in Blue

By P.G. Wodehouse

Rating: 4 stars

The Girl in Blue is a pretty typical Wodehouse farce. Young Jerry West has a poor uncle with a big house, a rich uncle who is withholding his inheritance, a gold-digging fiancé and has just fallen in love. Combine this with a missing miniature portrait, a dodgy butler, a policeman and a stream, leave to settle and you have one very entertaining novel.

While maybe not vintage Wodehouse, this novel still has all elements of a good, entertaining light read. You can polish it off in a few hours, and be thoroughly entertained during those hours. Marvellous to read while the weather outside is throwing its worst at you, while you’re curled up with a nice cup of tea and a blanket.
