Somewhat humorous. I guess because I'm thoroughly American, I cannot identify with the problems of a wealthy single man and his butler. Still, it was entertaining. Read full review

Review: Carry on, Jeeves (Jeeves #3)

User Review  - Julie Davis - Goodreads

This is the perfect froth to listen to while doing a huge catalog layout. I'm just glad the library had it available. Wodehouse's perfectly chosen words, especially as voiced by the inane Bertie, make the time fly. Read full review

About the author (2009)

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction.

At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.
