mind right hoRight Ho starts off comfortably enough with Bertie having tea in bed and chatting with super butler valet Jeeves about his newt loving friend Gussie Fink Nottle suddenly he is notified in a telegram that a V shaped rumminess has manifested itself from the direction of Worcestershire at Brinkley Court where his aunt Dahlia resides It seems his cousin Angela Travers has broken her engagement with his pal Tuppy Glossop and his aunt Dahlia is having trouble financing her magazine The sort of rummy problems Jeeves can solve in a jiffy except that Bertie is on the outs with Jeeves over a mess jacket "With Brass Buttons So He "brass buttons so he to sort out these difficulties himself Much hilarity ensues featuring Bertie getting himself engaged to a Manic Pixie Dream Girl Brinkley Court s French chef Anatole shaking a few fists at Gussie clinging to a roof for dear life fire alarms going off and many other lunatic incidents Right Ho Jeeves is a little unusual in that it is an actual novel rather than a collection of short stories like the other Jeeves books I have read The subplots tie in together surprisingly well so the book does not feel overly episodic Throughout the book the well meaning Bertie comes up with several wild schemes to alleviate his friends problems Unfortunately he cannot plan than two steps ahead and the second step is usually wrong As with most Wodehouse s books there is no real substance to the plot Fictions de Jorge Luis Borges you read his books for the extraordinary language hilarious dialogue and lovable characters Wodehouse does pull out a nice little twist at the end though with Jeeves applying his psychology of the individual to save the dayWodehouse s books are all feel good books thatou pick up when Aquarelle, la lumire de l'eau you feel a little down they will soon start to restoreour brain tissues They are also ideal if The Routledge Companion to Free Will you need a change of pace from serious fiction I ll be dashed if I can think of anything else to say What I ll do is I ll bung in some uotes instead to beef up the reviewTinkerty tonk The Jeeves Wooster television series is extremely diverting sir Ifou have not had the pleasure might I venture to suggest that Myford Series 7 Lathe Manual: ML7, ML7-R, Super 7 you endeavour to acuire the DVD forthwith Thankou sirNotes Audiobook credit Read "with appropriate jolliness by smashing cove Mark Nelson American chap and accent but spiffing fellow whose enjoyment of "appropriate jolliness by smashing cove Mark Nelson American chap and accent but spiffing fellow whose enjoyment of book is uite infectious Bonus points for Anatole s accented dialogue Download from Librivox I am glad nobody has to steal anything and try to put it back this time one of Wodehouse s favorite plot devicesuotes Elouent No it s not elouent Elusive No it s not elusive It s on the tip of my tongue Begins with an e and means being a jolly sight too cleverElaborate sir Jeeves doesn t have to open doors He s like one of those birds in India who bung their astral bodies about the chaps I mean who having gone into thin air in Bombay reassemble the parts and appear two minutes later in Calcutta Only some such theory will account for the fact that he s not there one moment and is there the next He just seems to float from Spot A to Spot B like some form of gas I consider that of all the dashed silly drivelling ideas I ever heard in my puff this is the most blithering and futile I read it backwards I read it forwards As a matter of fact I have a sort of recollection of even smelling it But it still baffled me He was one of those timid obseuious teacup passing thin bread and butter offering Attirance Criminelle Tome 1 yes men I wish there was something elseou could call him except Uncle Tom said Aunt Dahlia a little testily Every time Notes sur la mlodie des choses you do it I expect to see him turn black and start playing the banjo He barked raspingly as if he were having trouble with the tonsils of the soul Gah Too many great uotes to put in just read the whole book why don touBung oh. The wooing of Madeline Bassett by Gussie Fink Nottle and the resignation of Anatole the genius chef Will he prevail Only with the aid of Jeev. .
Rket Snodsbury Grammar School prize giving resignation of Aunt Dahlia s genius chief Anatole and Le druidisme au quotidien : Guide pratique et philosophique you will start getting an idea of the insurmountable difficulties poor Bertie was facing Like a true fighter he rushed headlong into all problems trying to untangle them It was easy to guess the outcome of his efforts butou can trust Wodehouse to come up with the most hilarious ones all the time In other words the Bertie was trying the worse the mess becomeI read some of the books of the series before and they never failed to amuse me This time something clicked or I started reading in the right mood or this is really the funniest book of the series and I laughted out loud non stop people around looking at me the weird way be damned Jeeves I m engagedI hope God de vader en God de moeder you will be very happy sirDon t be an ass I m engaged to Miss Bassett At this point I came to what I think is the highlight of the book Let me start with a personal example I had two good aunts I was content Only after reading this novel I realized my life was seriously lacking I need the third aunt Not just anybody but Aunt Dahlia I wonder if she can adopt me He initial exchange of telegrams with Bertie was the first scene that thawed the ice so to say and made me laugh Her first personal appearance was nothing short of brilliant Am taking legal advice to ascertain whether strangling an idiot nephew counts as murder If it doesn t look out forourself You can see she cares deeply about her nephew Still not convinced It isn t often that Aunt Dahlia lets her angry passions rise but when she does strong men climb trees and pull them up after them Any other named character was great colorful and funny but Aunt Dahlia out shined them all The story was ridiculous funny and full of twists The humor started at page 14 I double checked and never stopped until next to last page Yes this is me reading I said Don t talk rot Old Tom TraversI am not accustomed to talk rot he saidThen for a beginner I said Sami et Julie CE1 Sami et Julie font des crpes you do it dashed well So regarding the rating this time it was very easy Any book that makes me laugh aloud and uncontrollably is worth 5 stars End of story One word of caution reading it convinced me my vocabulary was mediocre as I kept encountered lesser known words at least once per page Bertie doou read TennysonNot if I can help PS Sorry I could not resist inserting one uote I promise it is the last one Yes JeevesThe man had materialized on the carpet Absolutely noiseless as usualA note for Deliciously Ella entre amis you sirA note for me JeevesA note forou sirFrom whom JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirFrom whom JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirFrom Miss Bassett JeevesFrom Miss Bassett sirAt this point Aunt Dahlia begged us for heaven s sake to cut out the cross talk vaudeville stuff Always willing to oblige I dismissed Jeeves with a nod and he flickered for a moment and was gone PPS For people living in countries where the government has not gone wild with copyright laws the book is available from Project Gutenberg Sorry my German friends The 2012 re readGussie Fink Nottle is in love with Madeline Bassett but can t seem to talk to her Madeline Bassett is in love with Gussie Fink Nottle but thinks Bertie Wooster wants to marry her Bertie s cousin Angela was engaged to Tuppy Glossop but they had a bust up over whether or not Angela saw a shark Can Jeeves put them all back together He might have been able to had he and Bertie not had a falling out over Bertie s white mess jacket First off this review will hardly be unbiased My love for PG Wodehouse is such that if the zombie apocalypse occured and Wodehouse came staggering toward me with a lust for brains I would be completely unwilling to shoot himThe second full length Jeeves and Wooster novel is a big improvement over the first The writing is crisper the similes even hilarious and Jeeves and Wooster function like a well oiled machine Once again the rift between Jeeves and Wooster was used as a plot device effectively than in Thank You JeevesAs usual uotable lines are in abundance As usual I did not write any of them down while I was "ReadingLack Of Appetite I M As Hollow "of appetite I m as hollow the Grand CanyonThe exuisite code of politeness of the Woosters prevented me clipping her one on the ear holeThe strength of the Jeeves and Wooster books is that Bertie is a bit of a fathead and he performs the role admirably in Right ho Jeeves Bertie thinking he could be as good as Jeeves at solving problems Pshaw I say Once things are suitably muddled Jeeves saves the day as he always does I do not consider the previous sentence a spoiler since it happens in every Jeeves bookFunny moments abound many of them centering on a drunken Gussie Fink Nottle Aunt Dahlia is in fine form Tuppy Angela and Madeline Bassett were negligible but still had their moments Right Ho Jeeves the second Jeeves and Wooster novel is a much better read than the first Wodehouse is the master of the bumbling romantic comedy Four easy stars In 2012 I was elected the Vice President of our college alumni association here in the UAE I was to take charge at our annual get together at the same event I presented an ottamthullal a satirical dance drama which was a runaway hit What with all the celebratory euphoria I imbibed a little too much of the happy juice in the parking lot outside the venue drinks were not allowed in the hall and before I knew it I was pickled to the gillsYou can see me with a beatific smile as I took the stage later in the daySee the serenity of the countenanceAnd here I am shaking hands with the President I don t remember what I was saying to him In fact I don t remember much of the afternoon Here s Bertie Wooster talking about Gussie Fink Nottle about to distribute the prizes at Market Snodsbury SchoolWhen I was able to see clearly once I perceived that Gussie was now seated He had his hands on his knees with his elbows out at right angles like a nigger minstrel of the old school about to ask Mr Bones why a chicken crosses the road and he was staring before him with a smile so fixed and pebble beached that I should have thought that anybody could have guessed that there sat one in whom the old familiar juice was plashing up against the back of the front teeth Many people would have guessed the same thing about me that day Fortunately I was not called on to give a speech like Gussie was If it had happened I m sure the script would have gone something like the passage reproduced belowGussie having stretched His Arms And Yawned A arms and La vie sexuelle de Tintin yawned a switched on that pebble beached smile again and tacked down to the edge of the platformSpeech he said affablyHe then stood with his thumbs in the armholes of his waistcoat waiting for the applause to die downIt was some time before this happened for he had got a very fine hand indeed I suppose it wasn t often that the boys of Market Snodsbury Grammar School came across a man public spirited enough to call their head master a silly ass and they showed their appreciation in no uncertain manner Gussie may have been one over the eight but as far as the majority of those present were concerned he was sitting on top of the world Boys said Gussie I mean ladies and gentlemen and boys I do not detainou long but I suppose on this occasion to feel compelled to say a few auspicious words Ladies and boys and gentlemen we have all listened with interest to the remarks of our friend here who forgot to shave this morning I don t know his name but then he didn t know mine Fitz Wattle I mean absolutely absurd which suares things up a bit and we are all sorry that the Reverend What ever he was called should be. Ls in the English language Bertie must deal with the Market Snodsbury Grammar School prize giving the broken engagement of his cousin Angela. Who needs expensive Freudian psychiatrists when The Spinster and the Rake (Never a Wallflower, you can have this The discovery of some toy duck in the soap dish presumably the property of some former juvenile visitor contributed not a little to this new and happier frame of mind What with one thing and another I hadn t played with toy ducks in my bath forears and I found the novel experience most invigorating For the benefit of those interested I may mention that if Not You Its Me (Boston Love, you shove the thing under the surface with the sponge and then let it go it shoots out of the water in a manner calculated to divert the most careworn Ten minutes of this and I was enabled to return to the bedchamber much the merry old Bertram Old Bertram is in dire n Another adventure with Jeeves the butler and his employer the great maybe Bertram Bertie Wooster the so called masterBut who is really in charge And for that matter the smartest It s very apparent from the beginning and the butler did it However this isn t a murder mystery only the pompous affected and no one dies here just their dignity sacrificed When our not uite competent Bertie comes back to his London place from Cannes France after a vacation of two months his whole life is a vacation to tell the truth His intimidating Aunt Dahlia insists he come to her country house Brinkley Court immediately the shall we say MrWooster lacking fortitude obeysStrange since his aunt and her daughter Angela had spent their vacation with him oh well Jeeves had stayed in England also informs Bertie that his silly old university friend Augustus Gussie Fink Nottle Wodehouse makes up the greatest names wants to see him Weird since Gussie hates London and spends his time studying newtsou ve read correctly salamanders at his country estate A man needs to keep busy they the all knowing public insinuates people are funny others imply Back to the book ou guessed it a girl is involved Madeline Bassett a woman that Wooster met at CannesYet when Fink Nottle arrives he doesn t need to see his good friend but Jeeves instead a wise choiceWord has gotten around the wise butler can solve any romantic difficulties So the uncomfortable Bertie invites Gussie to go to his aunt s house if a little brighter the friend would decline and run for the hills but nobody in this entire novel is that intelligent just one this no understatement for sure luckily or is it Madeline is a guest there By the way the reason Wooster s aunt asked him to come is she wants him to give some presents in the local grammar school to the small children no big dealExcept poor Bertie is terrified why the man also has to make a small speech in front of the whole village public discourse makes him shake rattle and roll Disaster follows disaster as Wooster without any help from Jeeves naturally foolish Bertie insists on this when he tries himself to bring together two couples and get them to the altar The shy Fink Nottle and Madeline his cousin Angela and her estranged boyfriend Tuppy Glossop Both duos become engaged and not engaged even Bertie somehow gets roped in Jeeves please help them A fun book to tickle the funny bone for those who have one Bertie Wooster takes the reins from his gentleman s gentleman Jeeves who had everything well enough in hand and soon everything s gone pear shaped if that s the expression I m looking for Bertie s well intentioned schemings upset his aunt and uncle s brilliant French chef who gives notice which upsets everyone s gastric juices Meanwhile his meddling upon a friend s behalf almost divorces Bertie himself from his beloved bachelorhood egads When one comes to the realization that they are a first class idiot it s time to throw in the towel and call the National Guardor even better JeevesWell now how can ou go wrong with a comedy that has Right Ho taking up two thirds of its title You can not my old bean My Bitchy Soulmate you can not Add in a generous helping of
