More Jeeves

I’ve got to say, I am really enjoying Wodehouse’s Jeeves stories. They are each a gorgeous English comedy of manners where the silly Bertie Wooster has to be rescued by his loyal (and far cleverer) butler, Jeeves.

In Joy in the Morning, it is (again) an unwanted romantic entanglement that Bertie is trying to extricate himself from, whilst helping some good friends get the permission of the formidable Uncle Percy for marriage – the very same Uncle who makes him shiver in his boots.

In this story, the incredible intelligence and insight of Jeeves was recognised by more characters, as even lords requested his counsel. Very cool. This nearly matches the coolness of listening to this on CD, and hearing the crisp British accents. Mwah!
