The Mating Season (Jeeves, #9)

By P.G. Wodehouse

Rating: 5 stars

Bertie Wooster is going to Deverill Hall to star in a local entertainment at the behest of his old friend Corky, except he has to pretend to be newt-fancier and teetotaller Gussie Fink-Nottle and eventually finds a house full of heartache and crossed lovers. It’s up to Bertie, ably assisted by the indefatigable Jeeves to sort the whole mess out — with the spur that if he fails, he’ll have to marry Madeline Bassett, who thinks that the stars are God’s daisy chain.

Typical Wodehousian mania, with lots of eccentric characters, bumbling policemen and twisty plots. The characters are as likeable as ever and Wodehouse’s writing just hits a sweet spot for me of being eminently readable. Jolly good stuff, what ho!
