Review: Right Ho Jeeves by PG Wodehouse

Jeeves and Bertie are back, and this time Bertie wishes that Jeeves would jolly well stop interfering, after his suggestions find Bertie's old friend Gussie Fink-Nottle stranded in London in fancy dress. And so, disaster ensures when Bertie decides to help Gussie win the heart of Madeline Bassett, without any help from Jeeves.

As always, this was a fun, lighthearted comedy that perfectly satirises the lives of England's idle-rich in the 1920s. Jeeves and Wooster make for the perfect duo, the dim witted millionaire and his clever valet. This time around, Jeeves' solution to the problem may have had a touch of malice in it in regard to his employer, but, lets face it, working for Bertie would try the patience of a saint.

Overall, lots of fun. Highly recommended.
