The Inimitable Jeeves - P. G. Wodehouse

The Inimitable Jeeves - P. G. Wodehouse

With a cast of characters that includes bearded revolutionaries, practical-joking twins, ... more

incognito authors, and a pair of confidence
tricksters, The Inimitable Jeeves finds our
upper-class hero Bertie Wooster in all kinds of
hot water. Of particular concern in this
collection of short stories--sensitively abridged
by Penguin and read by Simon Callow--is Bertie's
friend Bingo Little, who falls in love so often
that it is impossible to keep track of his
romantic entanglements, and who always falls for
the most unsuitable women. Unable to refuse to
help a friend, Bertie is placed in one difficult
situation after another, always under the watchful
eye of his butler. Jeeves constantly works in the
background, undermining Bertie's autonomy and
moving the narrative in unexpected directions. He
often fails to let his employer in on his plots,
and a large proportion of his schemes turn out to
expose Bertie to ridicule. Yet Jeeves also ensures
that Bertie's life runs smoothly, steering him
through the pitfalls which face a rich young man
with too much time on his hands. When in one story
Bertie overhears Jeeves describing his employer as
"not intelligent", he sets out to disprove the
butler's assessment. If it is predictable that
things do not go according to plan, then it is
Wodehouse's brilliant grasp of comedy which makes
the manner in which things go wrong so constantly
surprising. And, of course, by the end of the tale
Jeeves has proved himself both inimitable and
indispensable. --John Oates
