How many books make you laugh out loud today.
Wodehouse's books contain some of the broadest, most imaginative and most enjoyable imagery and his original use of simile is unique.
If you have never read Wodehouse you are missing a treat. You will have to search hard to find his equal anywhere else in the whole of English literature."

Do you know any other author who could so intricately weave the life of newts and a temperamental french chef into a love story set in the English countryside? Wodehouse was a magician. Right Ho Jeeves was my first foray into the rarified atmosphere of sublimely crafted Wodehouse humour. Although set in a time many decades ago, the story is like a time capsule, merth is liberated with the turning of each page. Its a cracker and you'll be hooked on Wodehouse. I've have bought and read two more of his books within three weeks.
