Currently reading China Miéville and PG Wodehouse. Two authors who have nothing in common other than their ability to engage the reader. But Wodehouse makes a nice change when China breaks my brain. No review for Perdido Street Station (which is free on the Kindle right now) yet, I’ve only just gotten to Part 4. But here’s my take on My Man Jeeves.
Project Gutenberg is my fave place for OOP and public domain books. I adore Wodehouse, and who can forget our beloved gentleman’s personal gentleman, Jeeves, who ever comes to the rescue when the hapless Bertie Wooster falls into trouble. Pithy buffoonery, moronic misunderstandings, gaffes, and aristocratic slapstick. It reads considerably more satirically now than it probably did in the heydays of 1919…but it hasn’t lost a bit of its humor.
