Much Obliged, Jeeves by P.G.Wodehouse

"When a man is an old friend and pretty bosom at that, it depresses you to hear that he's engaged to Florence Craye."

What isn't to love about an outing with Jeeves and Bertie Wooster? 

This one seemed familiar, however, that did nothing to diminish its enjoyment for me. A book kept by the butlers of the upper set containing all their escapades and foibles, has gone missing and spells trouble for all and sundry. Bertie and his friends are firmly ensconced in their usual dilemmas trying to get into or out of prospective marriages, add a soupcon of crazy aunts and queue the laughter.

If you are ever feeling a little bit blue, overwhelmed by the horrors of the 24 hour news cycle or just basically in need of a pick me up, Wodehouse never fails to deliver. He is literary prozac. In the words of Jeeves 'Very Good Sir'.

5 out of 5 butlers make a mean G & T.
