Ever it was frankly appalled me confesses Bertie yet that s exactly where his efforts on behalf of Gussie lands him It s enough to turn our bachelor friend to despair I ve said it before and I ll say it again girls are rummy Old Pop Kipling never said a truer word than when he made that crack about the f of the s being d than the m Gussie and the Bassett are not the only couple trying to mend p the ties of love Bertie s cousin Angela is on the warpath with her fiancee another Wodehouse recurring character and frenemy of Bertie Tuppy Glossop Add to the double dose of romance the volatile temper of the Brinkley Court s celebrated cook Anatole and the sour disposition of the lord of the manor and you have the main ingredients of the soup Bertie is currently wallowing in Well I m dashed I m really dashed I positively am dashed Jeeves finally confesses the master after all his best efforts misfire and he goes back as the reader already knew he would to his trusted servant for rescue But can even Jeeves transform a newt like Gussie into a dragon Only active measures promptly applied can provide this poor pusillanimous poop with the proper pep Don t you just love this alliterative game But what can he be talking about I am still cracking with laughter as I remember the effect of alcohol on the timid man s disposition It just shows what any member of Parliament will tell you that if you want real oratory the preliminary noggin is essential Unless pie eyed you cannot hope to grip I should try the recipe when writing my reviews Maybe they will be as popular as Gussie s speechmaking The Ghost Light Kids Get Hooked under the influenceOn a personal level I am most grateful to P G Wodehouse for making me fall in love with the English language all over again I feel so lucky to be able to enjoy his prose in the original club vernacular even as I dive to the dictionary for sedulously diligent in application or attention persevering assiduous or hornswoggleto swindle cheat hoodwink or hoax Even his insults have style inventivity and his short portraits arenrivaled in the field of comedy Uncle Tom who always looked a bit like a pterodactyl with a secret sorrow Tuppy If you can visualize a bulldog which has just been kicked in the ribs and had its dinner sneaked by the cat you will have Hildebrand Glossop as he now stood before me Aunt Dahlia She looked like a tomato struggling for self expression also the nearest thing to a charging rhinocerosRecurrent jokes that are continued from one story to another are another secret ingredient mixed by Wodehouse into his recipe for success I have already mentioned the wardrobe malfunctions Another example is the reference to the habit of Jeeves to move about silently My private belief as I think I have mentioned before is that Jeeves doesn t have to open doors He s like one of those birds in India who bung their astral bodies about the chaps I mean who having gone into thin air in Bombay reassemble the parts and appear two minutes later in Calcutta Only some such theory will account for the fact that he s not there one moment and is there the next He just seems to float from Spot A to Spot B like some form of gas or I dismissed Jeeves with a nod and he flickered for a moment and was gone Many a spectre would have been less slippy I am sure the author will come with a fresh twist on the old jokes for his next novel and this is one of the reasons I am glad that he was so productive and that I have so many of his novels to enjoy in the futureRecommended as the best remedy for a sour disposition If you haven t yet read one of Wodehouse farces this is a good introduction to his style This dashed difficult problem of where to begin it It s a thing you don t want to go wrong over because one false step and you re sunk I mean if you fool about too long at the start trying to establish atmosphere as they call it and all that sort of rot you fail to grip and the customers walk out on you Bertie Wooster in spite of being a silly ass has a way with words His first person narrative is a joy to read it does help that he has PG Wodehouse to write on his behalf He is right of course the first paragraph of anything is often the hardest one to write I am in fact in the soup at this very moment12 hours later I must admit that I found myself at moment of going to press a little destitute of constructive ideas Well I m dashed I went to bed with only one paragraph done I woke p to find still only one paragraph done Where are those little elves chappies who are supposed to get things done for you when you are getting your eight hours shuteye You know making shoes writing reviews and whatnot What rot these stories are I d say I have a good mind to complain except that I don t actually have a good mind Right Ho Jeeves starts off comfortably enough with Bertie having tea in bed and chatting with super butler valet Jeeves about his newt loving friend Gussie Fink Nottle suddenly he is notified in a telegram that a V shaped rumminess has manifested itself from the direction of Worcestershire at Brinkley Court where his aunt Dahlia resides It seems his cousin Angela Travers has broken her engagement with his pal Tuppy Glossop and his aunt Dahlia is having trouble financing her magazine The sort of rummy problems Jeeves can solve in a jiffy except

Ls in the English language Bertie must deal with the Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize giving the broken engagement of his cousin Angela. Every line was perfection I kept laughing out loud and looking for someone to read bits too but alas there was no one who appreciates this the way I do at hand The real tragedy though is realizing that I will never have friends with awesome names like Tuppy Glossop Pongo Twistleton and Gussie Fink Nottle WOOSTERS GUIDE as opposed to boring old Webster s guideWoosters are men of tact and have a nice sense of host obligationsEven when displaying the iron hand Woosters like to keep the thing fairly mateyWhen woosters put their hand to the plough they do not readily sheath the swordWoosters are fair minded and make allowances for men parading through London all night in scarlet tights my favoriteWoosters like to have their story readyA Woosters word is his bondWoosters are icker witted than the ordinary man and can read between the linesWoosters are ingenious Jeeves exceedingly ingenious Woosters are always at their shrewdest and most level headed in Bertie Wooster takes the reins from his gentleman s gentleman Jeeves who had everything well enough in hand and soon everything s gone pear shaped if that s the expression I m looking for Bertie s well intentioned schemings pset his aunt and ncle s brilliant French chef who gives notice which Plants Used by the Indians of Mendocino County, California (1902) upsets everyone s gastric juices Meanwhile his meddlingpon a friend s behalf almost divorces Bertie himself from his beloved bachelorhood egads When one comes to the realization that they are a first class idiot it s time to throw in the towel and call the National Guardor even better JeevesWell now how can you go wrong with a comedy that has Right Ho taking Love Show up two thirds of its title You can not my old bean you can not Add in a generous helping of Gussie Fink Nottles Madeline Bassetts and Tuppy Glossops and you have yourself a school prize winner Drunken awards speeches and other kooky hijinks abound Another adventure with Jeeves the butler and his employer the great maybe Bertram Bertie Wooster the so called masterBut who is really in charge And for that matter the smartest It s very apparent from the beginning and the butler did it However this isn t a murder mystery only the pompous affected and no one dies here just their dignity sacrificed When our notite competent Bertie comes back to his London place from Cannes France after a vacation of two months his whole life is a vacation to tell the truth His intimidating Aunt Dahlia insists he come to her country house Brinkley Court immediately the shall we say MrWooster lacking fortitude obeysStrange since his aunt and her daughter Angela had spent their vacation with him oh well Jeeves had stayed in England also informs Bertie that his silly old Origin (Robert Langdon, university friend Augustus Gussie Fink Nottle Wodehouse makesp the greatest names wants to see him Weird since Gussie hates London and spends his time studying newts you ve read correctly salamanders at his country estate A man needs to keep busy they the all knowing public insinuates people are funny others imply Back to the book you guessed it a girl is involved Madeline Bassett a woman that Wooster met at CannesYet when Fink Nottle arrives he doesn t need to see his good friend but Jeeves instead a wise choiceWord has gotten around the wise butler can solve any romantic difficulties So the The Riddle of the Yellow Canary uncomfortable Bertie invites Gussie to go to his aunt s house if a little brighter the friend would decline and run for the hills but nobody in this entire novel is that intelligent just one this nonderstatement for sure luckily or is it Madeline is a guest there By the way the reason Wooster s aunt asked him to come is she wants him to give some presents in the local grammar school to the small children no big dealExcept poor Bertie is terrified why the man also has to make a small speech in front of the whole village public discourse makes him shake rattle and roll Disaster follows disaster as Wooster without any help from Jeeves naturally foolish Bertie insists on this when he tries himself to bring together two couples and get them to the altar The shy Fink Nottle and Madeline his cousin Angela and her estranged boyfriend Tuppy Glossop Both duos become engaged and not engaged even Bertie somehow gets roped in Jeeves please help them A fun book to tickle the funny bone for those who have one Who needs #Expensive Freudian Psychiatrists When You # Freudian psychiatrists when you have this The discovery of some toy duck in the soap dish presumably the property of some former juvenile visitor contributed not a little to this new and happier frame of mind What with one thing and another I hadn t played with toy ducks in my bath for years and I found the novel experience most invigorating For the benefit of those interested I may mention that if you shove the thing nder the surface with the sponge and if you shove the thing nder the surface with the sponge and let it go it shoots out of the water in a manner calculated to divert the most careworn Ten minutes of this and I was enabled to return to the bedchamber much the merry old Bertram Old Bertram is in dire need of moral bracing since one of his recurring spats over wardrobe with his trusted man Jeeves has left him without valuable advice just when he needed it most Valiant efforts to solve the problems of his friends and family gathered at Brinkley Court on his own are only serving to further push him deeper into the soup Bertie blames it on bad luck and on the French If I hadn *t gone to Cannes I shouldn t have met the Bassett or bought that white mess jacket *gone to Cannes I shouldn t have met the Bassett or bought that white mess jacket Angela wouldn t have met her shark and Aunt Dahlia wouldn t have played baccarat If you want to find the connection between sharks white mess jackets baccarat devil s costumes newts and French cooking you have come to the right place at Brinkley Court Be careful though of Bertie s clever plans and keep Gussie Fink Nottle away from the strong spirits As his Aunt Dahlia rather cruelly but truthfully puts it You may well say Golly Anatole God s gift to the gastric juices gone like the dew off the petal of a rose all through your idiocy After reading four or five Jeeves short stories collections in a row I was just in the right disposition for a substantial fare and the master didn t disappoint Right Ho Jeeves is one of Wodehouse s best novels showcasing his talent to weave together several storylines and to ramp Plastic up the mischief and hijinks to stratospheric levels where even the imperturbable gentleman s gentleman Jeeves would be hard put to comep with a solution Some of the faces are familiar as are some of the romantic missteps that crop Where Poppies Grow up in almost every Wodehouse story but there is something about how the different characters come together and interact that make me appreciate the long form better than the above mentioned short stories This splittig of the troubles into four or five separate incidents makes it a little harder to pick a main plot line in the novel but judging by screen time and by the laughter meter I would pick August Fink Nottle as the leader of the pack This old school friend of Bertie this newt nuzzling blister as he is or less affectionately referred to has fallen in love And because he is pathologically shy and accident prone he appeals to Jeeves as a go between As you might remember Jeeves and Bertie had a tiff over a dinner jacket so Bertie takes reluctantly the role of Cupid A splendid chap of course in many ways courteous amiable and just the fellow to tell you what to do till the doctor came if you had a sick newt on your hands butite obviously not of Mendelssohn s March timber I have no doubt that you could have flung bricks by the hour in England s most densely populated districts without endangering the safety of a single girl capable of becoming Mrs Augustus Fink Nottle without an anaesthetic Yet such a girl resides presently at Brinkley Court Madeline Bassett another gold plated comedy arrow in the author s iver A sensitive poetic soul whose exclamations about daisy chains and fluffy rabbits in the meadows are apt to give even the strongest man the shivers the thought of being engaged to a girl who talked openly about fairies being born because stars blew their noses or what.

Alone in the Ice World The Third Book of the Dun Cow
E of those timid obseuious teacup passing thin bread and butter offering yes men I wish there was something else you could call him except Uncle Tom said Aunt Dahlia a little testily Every time you do it I expect to see him turn black and start playing the banjo He barked raspingly as if he were having trouble with the tonsils of the soul Gah Too many great otes to put in just read the whole book why don t youBung oh In 2012 I was elected the Vice President of our college alumni association here in the UAE I was to take charge at our annual get together at the same event I presented an ottamthullal a satirical dance drama which was a runaway hit What with all the celebratory euphoria I imbibed a little too much of the happy juice in the parking lot outside the venue drinks were not allowed in the hall and before I knew it I was pickled to the gillsYou can see me with a beatific smile as I took the stage later in the daySee the serenity of the countenanceAnd here I am shaking hands with the President I don t remember what I was saying to him In fact I don t remember much of the afternoon Here s Bertie Wooster talking about Gussie Fink Nottle about to distribute the prizes at Market Snodsbury SchoolWhen I was able to see clearly once I perceived that Gussie was now seated He had his hands on his knees with his elbows out at right angles like a nigger minstrel of the old school about to ask Mr Bones why a chicken crosses the road and he was staring before him with a smile so fixed and pebble beached that I should have thought that anybody could have guessed that there sat one in whom the old familiar juice was plashing The Shadow at the Bottom of the World up against the back of the front teeth Many people would have guessed the same thing about me that day Fortunately I was not called on to give a speech like Gussie was If it had happened I m sure the script would have gone something like the passage reproduced belowGussie having stretched his arms and yawned a bit switched on that pebble beached smile again and tacked down to the edge of the platformSpeech he said affablyHe then stood with his thumbs in the armholes of his waistcoat waiting for the applause to die downIt was some time before this happened for he had got a very fine hand indeed I suppose it wasn t often that the boys of Market Snodsbury Grammar School came across a man public spirited enough to call their head master a silly ass and they showed their appreciation in noncertain manner Gussie may have been one over the eight but as far as the majority of those present were concerned he was sitting on top of the world Boys said Gussie I mean ladies and gentlemen and boys I do not detain you long but I suppose on this occasion to feel compelled to say a few auspicious words Ladies and boys and gentlemen we have all listened with interest to the remarks of our friend here who forgot to shave this morning I don t know his name but then he didn t know mine Fitz Wattle I mean absolutely absurd which suares things Design for Six Sigma up a bit and we are all sorry that the Reverend What ever he was called should be dying of adenoids but after all here today gone tomorrow and all flesh is as grass and what not but that wasn t what I wanted to say What I wanted to say was this and I say it confidently without fear of contradiction I say in short I am happy to be here on this auspicious occasion and I take much pleasure in kindly awarding the prizes consisting of the handsome books you see laid out on that table As Shakespeare says there are sermons in books stones in the running brooks or rather the other way about and there you have it in a nutshellIt went well and I wasn t surprised I couldn tite follow some of it but anybody could see that it was real ripe stuff and I was amazed that even the course of treatment he had been taking could have rendered so normally tongue tied a dumb brick as Gussie capable of itIt just shows what any member of Parliament will tell you that if you want real oratory the preliminary noggin is essential Unless pie eyed you cannot hope to gripGentlemen said Gussie I mean ladies and gentlemen and of course boys what a beautiful world this is A beautiful world full of happiness on every side Let me tell you a little story Two Irishmen Pat and Mike were walking along Broadway and one said to the other Begorrah the race is not always to the SWIFT AND THE OTHER REPLIED FAITH AND BEGOB EDUCATION and the other replied Faith and begob education a drawing out not a putting in I must say it seemed to me the rottenest story I had ever heard and I was surprised that Jeeves should have considered it worth while shoving into a speech However when I taxed him with this later he said that Gussie had altered the plot a good deal and I dare say that accounts for itAt any rate that was the conte as Gussie told it and when I say that it got a very fair laugh you will Otis Oldfield understand what a popular favourite he had become with the multitude There might be a bearded bloke or so on the platform and a small section in the second row who were wishing the speaker would conclude his remarks and resume his seat but the audience as a whole was for him solidlyThere was applause and a voice cried Hear hearYes said Gussie it is a beautiful world The sky is blue the birds are singing there is optimism everywhere And why not boys and ladies and gentlemen I m happy you re happy we re all happy even the meanest Irishman that walks along Broadway Though as I say there were two of them Pat and Mike one drawing out the other putting in I should like you boys taking the time from me to give three cheers for this beautiful world All together nowPresently the dust settled down and the plaster stopped falling from the ceiling and he went onThis is the funniest part from the funniest book I have ever read The 2012 re readGussie Fink Nottle is in love with Madeline Bassett but can t seem to talk to her Madeline Bassett is in love with Gussie Fink Nottle but thinks Bertie Wooster wants to marry her Bertie s cousin Angela was engaged to Tuppy Glossop but they had a bustp over whether or not Angela saw a shark Can Jeeves put them all back together He might have been able to had he and Bertie not had a falling out over Bertie s white mess jacket First off this falling out over Bertie s white mess jacket First off this will hardly be The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet! unbiased My love for PG Wodehouse is such that if the zombie apocalypse occured and Wodehouse came staggering toward me with a lust for brains I would be completelynwilling to shoot himThe second full length Jeeves and Wooster novel is a big improvement over the first The writing is crisper the similes even hilarious and Jeeves and Wooster function like a well oiled machine Once again the rift between Jeeves and Wooster was Wciv, Volume 1 used as a plot device effectively than in Thank You JeevesAssual Even Monsters Need Haircuts uotable lines are in abundance Assual I did not write any of them down *While I Was ReadingLack Of Appetite I *I was readingLack of appetite I as hollow as the Grand CanyonThe exuisite code of politeness of the Woosters prevented me clipping her one on the ear holeThe strength of the Jeeves and Wooster books is that Bertie is a bit of a fathead and he performs the role admirably in Right ho Jeeves Bertie thinking he could be as good as Jeeves at solving problems Pshaw I say Once things are suitably muddled Jeeves saves the day as he always does I do not consider the previous sentence a spoiler since it happens in every Jeeves bookFunny moments abound many of them centering on a drunken Gussie Fink Nottle Aunt Dahlia is in fine form Tuppy Angela and Madeline Bassett were negligible but still had their moments Right Ho Jeeves the second Jeeves and Wooster novel is a much better read than the first Wodehouse is the master of the bumbling romantic comedy Four easy stars Beginning with a critiue of my own limbs which she said justly enough were nothing to write home about this girl went on to dissect my manners morals intellect general physiue and method of eating asparagus with such acerbity that by the time she had finished the best you could say of This is almost as funny as The Code of the Woosters which is saying a lot since Code is
