For five years I’ve had a set of ten Jeeves and Wooster books sat on my shelves and for a long time I had been meaning to finally get round to reading them. I started reading the first one earlier this year after deciding that they had been sat there for long enough, and there was no point having them if they weren’t going to be read.
The Jeeves and Wooster books are written by P G Wodehouse and are about the exploits of Bertie Wooster and his man-servant, the brilliant Jeeves. In the 1990s, the books were turned into a TV series in the UK with Stephen Fry playing Jeeves and his comedy partner Hugh Laurie starring as Wooster.
I’ve just finished the fourth book as they aren’t too long, and I find them easy to read; I wish I had picked them up earlier as I have loved every minute of them. They are witty, entertaining and well-written, although I don’t suppose some of the terms used in the book would be considered acceptable in today’s politically correct times.
Although P G Wodehouse has written many other books, it is the Jeeves and Wooster characters that always stand out for me.
P G Wodehouse was a prolific writer and he wrote more than 70 P G Wodehouse books; he also wrote hundreds of short stories. In 1975, P G Wodehouse died in New York aged 93.
