This was my second Wodehouse book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a collection of stories about Bertie Wooster a wealthy, not-to-bright, but completely likeable fellow and his valet Jeeves.
Among the stories in this collection are one about Bertie’s first introduction to Jeeves and another that is the first one I’ve read that is told from Jeeves’ viewpoint. Most of the stories involve Bertie or one of his friends getting caught in a dilemma. Jeeves usually has a plan that inevitably has unintended consequences. Somehow (usually due to further intervention from Jeeves) everything manages to work out.
I love how the humor written over 80 years ago is still light enjoyable reading that can make me giggle.
