    It took a bit of time at least from this particular volume to recognize the reasons for Wodehouse's pre eminance as British Humorist I still did not find that those reasons were able to upturn Adams or Pope but Wodehouse has a wit and verve which cannot be deniedWhat I expected and eventually got was a bit of mastery of the art of the ridiculous situation where the escalation of events and unlikely but usually rationally followi

summary ð eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ P.G. Wodehouse

London New York Hollywood and several transatlantic liners as three dapper young men find themselves in various Wodehousian predicaments concerning their love lives and finances Each volume has been reset and printed on Scottish cream wove acid free paper sewn and bound in cloth These novels are elegant and essential additions to any Wodehouse fan's librar Percy continued to stare before him like a man who has drained the wine cup of life to its lees only to discover a dead mouse at the bottomI began reading this book after attempts to read three other books Breakfast at Tiffany s The Leopard and Keep the Aspidistra Flying all failed within a couple of paragraphs of starting By the time I d set down the third book I knew nothing but Wodehouse would serve I needed something that didn t wear me down something light and entertaining Something like Buck u Uppo Wodehouse of courseThis collection consists of short stories featuring as its title suggests various young men most of them members of the Drones though there are a few stories the ones at the end of the book which feature Mr Mulliner s nephews All of the young men in spats with one exception are also young men in love nearly all have their stories centered round girls they ve fallen in love with There are unattainable girls girls who ve said yes but who are in danger of being lost and girls to be wooed There are rivals there are frightening relatives and other obstacles in the path of true love And in inimitable Wodehouse style the situations are fun but the icing on the cake is the writing so brilliantly witty and intelligent that you can t help but admire the genius of this man The exception to the young men in love motif is Pongo Twistleton who appears in the unforgettably hilarious Uncle Fred Flits By one of my favourite Wodehouse short stories Though Pongo does feel a sweeping infatuation for the pretty girl he encounters in the house where he poses briefly as assistant to vet nephew and then again vet the story isn t about the one sided love of Pongo at all I couldn t recommend this
