Known for his witty prose, plots revolving around comedic errors, and the characters of Jeeves & Wooster, P.G. Wodehouse was one of the great British comedic writers of the 20th century. His writings won him many readers in the first half of the 20th century and became the basis of a popular PBS series in the early 1990s.

My first introduction to Jeeves and Wooster was through the Fry & Laurie TV series many years ago. It took me this long to actually try one of the books and see just how well they did at interpreting the characters. And I have to say that they did a fantastic job.

This is a collection of short stories set in New York and despite the title, only about half actually featuring Jeeves & Wooster. The rest are about Reggie Pepper and his butler, who seem to be a precursor to the better characters.

I was not that big a fan of Reggie, he seemed a bit flat after Bertie (as his stories are in the middle of the book). Not as daft and funny though there are some glimmers of the future changes. There was also no Jeeves and as he's obviously an important part of the dynamic duo, it left those stories lacking.

The actual Jeeves and Wooster stories were inane and funny. The misadventures that they manage to create and the solutions they come up with are ridiculous and highly entertaining.
