I have finally been introduced to Bertie Wooster and his stalwart butler Jeeves. There’s no other character like Bertie, an upper-crust fool who has theories and comments to fit every occasion. Bertie’s interpretations of the events and people in his life are hilarious and one-of-a-kind, expressed with clever turns of phrase that are the author’s trademark.
As brief as Right Ho, Jeeves is, it’s not a book to be read quickly. As I suspect is true of all Wodehouse, Right Ho, Jeeves is filled with language to be savored, read carefully and then reread, not because it’s difficult but because it’s so clever and nearly every paragraph contains a gem.
