Jeeves in the Offing Someone has stolen Uncle Tom s antique silver cow creameragain It is only by a stroke of rare genius that Bertie Wooster finds a solution he calls on his incomparable manservant, Jeeves, to sort things out Another great farce Twists and turns with Wooster reading he is engaged and his friend Kipper trying to marry the lovely vermillion head who gets him in an entanglement Funny throughout with his aunt, cow creamer and his old school master from the past Thankfully Jeeves solves all their problems albeit Bertie ending up looking like a loon. He couldn t have moved quicker if he had been the dachshund Poppet, who at this juncture was running round in circles, trying, if I read his thoughts aright, to work off the rather heavy lunch he had had earlier in the afternoon Usually I do not have trouble finding bazillion of quotes to use in my review for any book of the series Sadly this time I came up with only see above and it is not outrageously funny One has to take what one can get I suppose It is a sign that the series runs outHe couldn t have moved quicker if he had been the dachshund Poppet, who at this juncture was running round in circles, trying, if I read his thoughts aright, to work off the rather heavy lunch he had had earlier in the afternoon Usually I do not have trouble finding bazillion of quotes to use in my review for any book of the series Sadly this time I came up with only see above and it is not outrageously funny One has to take what one can get I suppose It is a sign that the series runs out of steam by the time its book count reached twelve One perfectly fine day Bertie Wooster was minding his business thinking his life could not possible be happier He was reading a newspaper while eating a typical English breakfast when he stumbled upon an announcement of his own engagement to Bobbie Wickham he had no clue he was engaged This made him realize that while his life could not be happier it could get much, much worse It did Soon after his Aunt Dahlia called him inviting him to visit for the purpose of helping entertaining her important guests, Bobbie Wickham among them To make matters really bad, Jeeves was on vacation at the moment judging a swimsuit competition among other things as it later turned out So Bertie went and all the hell broke loose as it is usually the case with him.In one of the previous books I complained Jeeves without Bertie is boring This book made me realized that Bertie without Jeeves can carry the story for a while, but it also becomes stale after some time Jeeves did show up by the end of the book, but his contribution to the action was minimal and not too impressive Helpful still tough I was often amused reading the story I even laughed out loud a couple of times In the end I was disappointed Considering that it included such colorful and excellent characters that were great in the early tales as Aunt Dahlia, Bobbie Wickham, Roderick Glossop, and even the famous cow creamer, it was fairly average as far as humor concerned Any single person or thing from the list above could carry outrageously funny story Here, taken together they were mildly amusing I admit the rating should be higher than just 3 stars In this case it reflects my disappointment that the aforementioned actors of the drama and make no mistakes, from Bertie s point of view his tales are always dramas could not deliver something better The infamous cow creamer is back.Aunt Dahlia, Sir Roderick Glossop, and a whole slew of Bertie s nutty friends, ex fiancees, and frenemies show up in yet another hilarious story.This is also known as Jeeves in the Offing. Jeeves was right, but that title is wrong The statement in title form, How Right You Are, Jeeves does two things It tells you that Jeeves is going to offer up correct advice, as per usual It also leads you to believe that Jeeves will play a large role in said title, and that is not the case They should ve stuck with the alternate title Jeeves in the Offing Jeeves is Bertie Wooster s manservant Jeeves has extracted Bertie from many a mishap When Bertie is without Jeeves, he often finds hims Jeeves was right, but that title is wrong The statement in title form, How Right You Are, Jeeves does two things It tells you that Jeeves is going to offer up correct advice, as per usual It also leads you to believe that Jeeves will play a large role in said title, and that is not the case They should ve stuck with the alternate title Jeeves in the Offing Jeeves is Bertie Wooster s manservant Jeeves has extracted Bertie from many a mishap When Bertie is without Jeeves, he often finds himself neck deep in the soup When a Jeeves Wooster book is without Jeeves, the book often drowns How Right You Are, Jeeves is a perfectly adequate addition to the J W series, but it s not one of P.G Wodehouse s best It lacks the wit and fun that fill the pages in spades when both Bertie and Jeeves are doling out the words In this story, Bertie is left to fend for himself for the most part while his manservant is off on holiday Jeeves briefly pops his head in to comment on the proceeds, but that s about it.Drawn again to Brinkley Court to partake in his aunt s French chef par excellence Anatole s cooking, Bertie soon finds himself embroiled in one ridiculous scheme after another, where the bog standard love triangle lookslike an octagon The plot is a tad muddier than usual, as I don t feel Bertie has any great impetus pushing him on as is the case in other books Another reason for this one feeling flat could be that it was written later in Wodehouse s life, being published in 1960 when he was 79 He would go on writing and publishing for another 15 years, but this is his twilight era stage and perhaps the old tried and true plots are getting a bit tired at this point Even so, any Wodehouse fan can find plenty to enjoy in How Right You Are, Jeeves, such as recurring characters Aunt Dahlia, Sir Roderick Glossop, Bobbie Wickham, and the 18th century cow creamer
