My very first Wodehouse! My partner of 8 years has been pestering me since the beginning to pick one up. He swore I would be addicted.

So my verdict: If ever you want to taste the English language in it's simple form, pick this up.The writing is delicious at best and the storyline goofy but not over the top.

I chuckle every time I read of the 'frenemy-ial' relationship portrayed between the master and his batman. Bertie wants to asserts his dominance on Jeeves but never seems to know how to go about it. And Jeeves though vocally docile is Such a rebel at heart.

The only downside to reading PGW is that you end up incorporating him in your everyday speech. Unfortunately in today's age, unless you are Benedict Cummerbatch it sounds way too pretentious. Just imagine calling your drunk friends "ones with inflamed cerebral condition" or when you want to smoke "I will pop out for a tortured gasper".

P.G: I realize that the review (after writing it) is not much to do with this book in question but more about PGW as a whole. Well hopefully as I read more of him, I will be able to comparatively appreciative/criticize his books.
