The Inimitable Jeeves

20160422_the_inimitable_jeeves

With little energy left for serious reading at home, I have been picking books that are easy and fun. The Inimitable Jeeves is the third book to feature Jeeves and Wooster in 11 loosely connected short stories. This is the first Wodehouse book, in chronological order, where I actually see a full story emerge from the serially arranged stories.

The book centers around a chap named Bingo, a friend of Bertie, the type of friend who is worse than an enemy. He is living off a stipend from his uncle and is falling left and right at every woman he sees. And it takes all the energy of Jeeves and Wooster to pull him out of the capers he keeps falling into.

This book was very funny and was a joy to ride along. I felt that the betting story, The Great Sermon Handicap, stuck out like a sore thumb by being extremely boring and pointless. Minus that story, this Wodehouse is a great stressbuster.

Rating: 3/4
