This is my review of The Mating Season by PG Wodehouse.
This book continues the crazy antic of Bertie Wooster and his “man” Jeeves. Bertie thinking he is doing a good turn to Gussie Fink-Nottle by impersonating him, turns up at Deverill Hall and idyllic Tudoe manor in the picture perfect village of Kings Deverill.
Bertie is doing this because he thinks Gussie has been sentenced to fourteen days without the option for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square.
But Gussie does not end up in prison and leans of Berties plans so turns up in the guise of Bertram Wooster, with Jeeves in toe.
Then various relations, fiancées and other characters who either know the real person of who they are of the fake person as who they are, leading to a complex that only one person can put right.
Fortunately Jeeves was at hand, ready with counsel and aid. The scheme he evolved to extricate Wooster from one of the worst spots of his chequered career must be counted as the most brilliant his master-mind had yet devised.
This book is so off the wall as to be very funny. Maybe Christmas festivity helped. This was book 46 week 32 fiction 43 (13 on audio) non fiction 3
