I finally finished reading "Thank You, Jeeves," by P.G. Wodehouse!!! It started out kind of slowly, and I had difficulty actually making time to sit down and read it. The end was pretty good though, and once I hit chapter 15, things started to get more interesting. I liked it, but I didn't absolutely love it.
It was basically about this guy, named Bertram Wooster, (who was a bit -in my opinion- thoughtless and airheaded - although he really was a likeable fellow.) who has a bad knack for getting into trouble. The story beings with his insisting upon playing a banjolele and he is kicked out of his apartments because he is a nusiance. After releasing his manservant, Jeeves, who also thinks that his banjolele playing is anything but pleasant, he decides to rent a cottage from his friend, Lord "Chuffy". Of course, things go wrong and he gets mixed up in his friend's romance and must seek out the aid of his ingenious and practical servant, Jeeves.
It was definitely a comedy and the humor was classic. I did laugh quite a lot. The ending was very satisfying, and overall, I think I will end up looking for the other "Jeeves and Wooster" books at the library.
My only problem is this: I have heard the Jeeves and Wooster series compared to Sherlock Holmes, but I really couldn't see anything that even closely resembled Sherlock Holmes. Not even the style of writing was similar to Arthur Conan Doyle's. Can anyone clear this up?
Anyway, I think everyone at some point should try this book. You may end up loving it! Thanks for reading!
