    One of the earlier books of the series The Code of the Woosters takes place in Totleigh Towers Sufficient to say after Bertie Wooster was done with the place its inhabitants surely realized their lives were excellent provided our hero stays as far from them as possible From his side Bertie was not too crazy about his experience either So it was no wonder that when his pal Stinker Pinker asked him to go there to help with one of his and his fianc e problems Bertie flatly refused However w One of the earlier books of the series The Code of the Woosters takes place in Totleigh Towers Sufficient to say after Bertie Wooster was done with the place its inhabitants surely realized their lives were excellent provided our hero stays as far from them as possible From his side Bertie was not too crazy about his experience either So it was no wonder that when his pal Stinker Pinker asked him to go there to help with one of his and his fianc e problems Bertie flatly refused However when Bertie met his other pal Gussie Fink Nottle he realized he cannot afford not to go Gussie was engaged to Madeline who having had the wrong impression the Bertie was madly in love with her promised him that if even her engagement with Gussie would be broken she marries Bertie The latter did his best to prevent this from ever happening, but this time Madeline became a hardcore vegetarian I guess vegans did not exist at that time in Great Britain and I am envious This was too much for poor Gussie and I completely understand poor guy One anecdote from my personal experience follows, sorry about it My whole life I did not care if I had meat or not for my meal until I had a misfortune to be invited to a vegan party To make a long story short only a great amount of alcohol saved me that time These vegans made me realize life without meat is boring and miserable Coming back to the story Bertie came to Totleigh Towers bringing the usual mayhem with him There were times when I thought even Jeeves would not be able to help poor guy As anybody who read The Code of the Woosters which I mentioned before knows the population of that place consists of colorful and highly amusing characters This time they were all back with the vengeance Two scenes stand up in my mind First the obvious one the reaction of these characters upon seeing Bertie in flesh The second one was Bertie s misadventures with a grandfather s clock when he decided to visit a kitchen at night it also involved this guy below Both made me laugh out loud The rest of the book was quite amusing, but not quite on the level with these two parts Speaking about which they absolutely decided the rating 4 stars as opposed to 3 the rest of the books deserve.Some random observations at the end Bertie was reading a book by Erle Stanley Gardner This in my opinion showed his good taste in books I was unconditionally on Gussie s side in his great debate on vegetarianism As such I was happy with the way things turned out for him at the end On the related note other person got exactly what he was asking for from an earlier book of the series Amen

    P.G Wodehouse s Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves was published on the 22nd of March, 1963 That s the very day that The Beatles released their first album Please, Please Me , and exactly the same day John Profumo stood up in The Houses of Parliament to deny having relations with Christine Keener It was the year Kim Philby fled to Moscow, the scandalous divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, Harold McMillan s resignation, JFK s assassination and the first broadcast of Doctor Who.You will find n P.G Wodehouse s Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves was published on the 22nd of March, 1963 That s the very day that The Beatles released their first album Please, Please Me , and exactly the same day John Profumo stood up in The Houses of Parliament to deny having relations with Christine Keener It was the year Kim Philby fled to Moscow, the scandalous divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, Harold McMillan s resignation, JFK s assassination and the first broadcast of Doctor Who.You will find no hint of any of that within the pages of Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves.Unlike other Wodehouse novels of a later vintage, where there s the occasional odd and jarring references to doing the rock n roll, this is a novel completely sealed in aspic It s not set in a particular fixed time,a glorious England of the mind where Britannia still very much ruled the waves and that is a magnificent reality destined to last forever and ever It is Wodehouse world and I can think of nosoothing sanctuary for the slings and misfortunes of modern life.We re at Totleigh Towers in the company of Gussie Fink Nottle, Madeleine Bassett, Sir Watkyn Bassett, Roderick Spode or Lord Sidcup, to give him his new and proper title , a colonial old salt of an explorer named Major Brabazon Plank, Stinker Pinker, Stiffy Byng and her Aberdeen Terrier who like all of his breed looks at one as if they were in the pulpit of the church of some particularly strict Scottish sect and you were a parishioner of dubious reputation sitting in the front row of the stalls. All very familiar stuff then while the plot as one might expect is full of comic misunderstandings, sundered hearts and Bertie goggling for all he s worth.Compared to some of the mastery that went before in the Wooster books, this is merely an immensely charming and incredibly funny novel, not a work of staggering genius But obviously I m being unfair, as what could possibly match The Code of the Woosters or Right Ho, Jeeves In its own way Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves is an absolutely perfect pleasure A contemporaneous novel less concerned with the events of the 1960s it would be difficult to locate, but a better antidote to the craziness of the modern world it must surely be impossible to find

    This book was first published in the same month I was born In fact, in the UK only two days before I was born, though five months earlier in the US which surprised me somewhat I really like the idea that there might have been someone quickly reading this over the weekend that I was born and laughing away cheerfully at it all Yes, I like that idea very much.Wooster is truly one of the great narrative voices in English Literature There are moments when it is nearly dangerous to listen to him This book was first published in the same month I was born In fact, in the UK only two days before I was born, though five months earlier in the US which surprised me somewhat I really like the idea that there might have been someone quickly reading this over the weekend that I was born and laughing away cheerfully at it all Yes, I like that idea very much.Wooster is truly one of the great narrative voices in English Literature There are moments when it is nearly dangerous to listen to him as I drive The man who reads them, a Jonathan Cecil, ought to have been given a K years ago I ve never heard a better reader for audio books in my life His timing is immaculate and he brings the subtle and not so subtle humour of these books to the fore He has Wooster s slightly baffled and bewildered if that is the word I m looking for, it starts with a B anyway, whatever it is voice to a T There are very clever jokes like talking about Stinker s left hook and how adroit it is adroit being from the French for to the right The plot is never as simple as you think it is going to be I mean, you know how things are basically going to work out, but the moment you think you know what is going to happen next something totally unexpected occurs often occasioned by Jeeves who has a minor but essential role in all of these books and generally it is something that has a very funny comment to make on well, what it means to be human, I guess.I really can t rave about these books enough I ve finally tracked somedown in a secondhand bookshop, but they are as rare as hens teeth which is hard to imagine, as the idea they should ever be out of print beggar s belief You would think someone would have thought of printing The Great Big Book of Jeeves and Wooster or some such thing I d have bought a copy I might even have bought a couple of copies I ve friends, they would read this stuff too, I m quite sure.There is a bit of this towards the end where Wooster is talking about a man who thinks he, that is Bertie, is a kleptomaniac and the man is an adventurer who is forever nipping off to the jungles of theand such places Anyway, Bertie is forced to the conclusion that the native aboriginal peoples of Brazil really aren t much chop as they have had ample opportunity to kill this old fool and clearly have not availed themselves of the occasion as it has presented itself and the punch line is when he says something to the effect that, And these natives have the audacity to call themselves savages The other bit that made me laugh and laugh was where Bertie was being accused of plotting to steal an ornament and while being so accused is told to stop saying Oh or Aye I understand that might not sound funny but try it in context and it is close to the funniest thing I ve ever heard And of course the line about finding it difficult to continue a conversation when someone begins it by saying, So oh dear, sheer genius.I think I ve liked this one the most so far, although, I ve liked all of them the most as they have gone along They are a pure delight
