    Makes me want to read more

    This book became my first excursion through the very British world of P. G. Wodehouse. It's a great sampler of not just his stories about the droll butler Jeeves but several other recurring characters as well. Although he does not quite have the edge of another English wit whose stories I enjoy, Saki - Wodehouse is indeed sharp as a blade. Makes we want to read more.

    One of the best Wodehouse samplers!

    The world of Wodehouse is not limited to just his Jeeves/Bertie stories. This book not only gives hilarious examples of the dynamic duo, but will have you laughing 'til your ribs squeak' over the adventures of Stanley Featherstonehaugh (pronounced Fanshaw) Ukridge (rhymes with Dukeridge), who is just about the most adorable scamp to ever invent a get-rich-quick scheme. You must read the Ukridge 'Buttercup Day.' 'The Drones Club' is a series of stories from the club Bertie Wooster belongs to, and features his pals Freddie Widgeon, Barmy Fotheringgay-Phipps, Pongo Twistleton-Twistleton, and others, in situation comedies of the urbane wit Wodehouse is famous for. 'Mr. Mulliner' tells more stories of his family members who's antics rival Bertie/Jeeves. His 'Mullinter's Buck-u-uppo' is a side-splitter. The 'Lord Emsworth' section has Lord E., of Blanding's Castle, taking much pride in his prize winning pig, the Empress of Blanding's, and deals with family problems in 'Pig Hoo-o-o-o-ey.' Wodehouse (a lover of golf, himself) shows the witty side of the sport with his 'The Golf Stories' inclusive of 'The Coming of Gowf' and 'The Awakening of Rollo Podmarsh.' The Jeeve/Bertie section has five stories, such as 'The Great Sermon Handicap,' which shows Bertie's sporting spirit, betting on the preaching talents of local priests, and Jeeve's ability to make all things happen for the good of all. The last story of this wonderful sampler is the complete novel, 'Quick Service.
