Book Review: Jeeves Series

Author: P.G. Wodehouse
Book List: Wikipedia
First Published: 1919-1974
Suitable For Youngsters: Yes

Jeeves is probably one of the most efficient and resourceful butler in all England, and he works for Bertie Wooster, one of the most incompetent and aloof gentlemen in all of England. The Jeeves Series is composed of numerous short stories following the misadventures of Jeeves and Wooster, and of course a host of other equally bizarre characters which include Wooster’s equally useless friends and his shrill aunts.

If you’re looking for thick plots, 3-dimensional characters or deep thought-provoking themes, look elsewhere. This series is all about light-hearted fun and comedy, and it does so very very well.

    loool… I didn’t notice that Hugh was on the cover at first :p
    sounds like a fun read… I won’t add it to the top of my to-read list but I’ll get a copy for whenever I’m not in the mood to read a thought-provoking book.
