_ This collection of short stories introduces Bertie Wooster, a young somewhat foolish gentleman dependant on his aunt for money, and his gentleman’s gentleman, Jeeves. Jeeves is incredibly clever and throughout these stories manages to solve every predicament that Bertie finds himself in, often with some benefit to himself.
Bertie spends some time in New York enjoying the high life there, and solving the scrapes his friends get into, which often seem to involve various aunts that cause great amounts of trouble. As much as Berties relations cause him problems Jeeves various relations mainly cousins seem to offer solutions to them.
When reading the book it was very hard not to see the characters being acted out on TV, either by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry or by Dennis Price as Jeeves and Ian Carmichael as a rather middle-aged Bertie Wooster before them. Not withstanding this it is a very enjoyable read about life in the 1920's as book 18 week 18.
