This book was precisely what I needed to read about a month ago. The days were cold and depressingly grey and, in my opinion, there is no better antidote to the winter blues than spending some time in Bertie’s sunlit world.
Having read the last of the nine Jeeves and Wooster novels a few months ago, I now turned to one of the short story collections for my P. G. Wodehouse fix. The Inimitable Jeeves has some classic Bertie Wooster tales, a lot of them are often referenced in the novels, as Bertie always likes to reminisce. Like, for example the famous, or infamous, incident with Sir Roderick Glossop and the cats in Bertie’s bedroom. It was also nice to finally see how Bingo Little eventually got married (after falling in love with half a dozen girls in about a year).
All in all, this was another blissful sojourn in Bertie and Jeeves’ world, and just like every other time before, it was full of laughs and precious words of wisdom. If you haven’t read and any Jeeves and Wooster stories yet, please do!
