The Inimitable Jeeves by P G Wodehouse

5 stars

This was my pick for my Book Club this month! LOVE Jeeves and Wooster.

But you already knew that.

So. The Inimitable Jeeves is actually a bunch of short stories woven together as a novel. (Two stories from Enter Jeeves were in here, under different names and split into 2-3 chapters each.) And it works. It works really well. It has the feel of a novel while still being more or less in chunks suitable for shorter bits of time.

Bingo Little, a friend of Bertie's, is all over it. Constantly falling in love and needing Bertie (or Jeeves anyway) to bail him out of some trouble or other.

And then there are Aunt Agatha's plots to marry Bertie off. Which of course takes a plan or two from Jeeves to overcome.

Absolutely classic.

AND a few of the stories are episodes of Jeeves and Wooster, which is what we'll be watching when we get together!!

Absolutely worth owning.


  1. Can't wait to read this one. Wish I could have been there for book club, there is always next month right?

  2. Yeah, we missed you last night. (We were all up way too late.)

    Speaking of next month, maybe we should start looking for a date now.... :D
