Waterstones Says

Possibly the most clockwork-perfect plot that Wodehouse ever concocted, The Code of the Woosters fizzes with memorable characters, ingenious slapstick and gossamer light dialogue that feels remarkably effortless. 

'There are moments, Jeeves, when one asks oneself, "Do trousers matter?"'

'The mood will pass, sir.'

Aunt Dahlia has tasked Bertie with purloining an antique cow creamer from Totleigh Towers. In order to do so, Jeeves hatches a scheme whereby Bertie must charm the droopy and altogether unappealing Madeline and face the wrath of would-be dictator Roderick Spode. Though the prospect fills him with dread, when duty calls, Bertie will answer, for Aunt Dahlia will not be denied.

In a plot that swiftly becomes rife with mishaps, it is Jeeves who must extract his master from trouble. Again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Sheer joy - Independent

A cavalcade of perfect joy - Caitlin Moran

Fairly close to perfection - Spectator, Books to get through lockdown

There are periods when I'm not up to the journey, when hope is too much to ask for and I am only fit for ... cowering under the covers with P.G. Wodehouse - Cathy Rentzenbrink

The prose . . . is so gloriously funny you can relish the book over and over again. - The Times

Quite possibly the funniest book the master of comedy ever wrote. - i paper (feel good books)

A sheer joy to read. - Yahoo: 40 best books to read before you die

'Anything by PG Wodehouse' was a common response when asking around for people's comfort reads. It's very hard to pick just one, but this - with Roderick Spode, Aunt Dahlia and plenty of sneering at cow creamers - is fairly close to perfection. - Books to get through lockdown, Spectator

It's illegal to put together any list of the funniest books in English without including Wodehouse. [His] incredibly delicate descriptive touch (for example, of a particularly burly character: "as if Nature had intended to make a gorilla, and had changed its mind at the last moment") and sense of timing elevate a country house farce involving a policeman's hat, a cow-creamer and a would-be British fascist leader into something which glows with an effortless, sunny brilliance. - Esquire

“Crème de la Crime de la Creamer”

Wodehouse’s poor showing in those ‘Nation’s Favourite Book’ surveys is no reflection on the literary tastes of the British Reading Public; rather, said BRP’s traditional inability to distinguish one novel of his from... More
