    Description

    Carry On, Jeeves is an anthology of ten short stories, some previously published in the Saturday Evening Post and a few rewritten versions from the My Man Jeeves collection. It is considered to be a part of the Jeeves canon.

    Summary Of The Book

    Carry On, Jeeves is a classic collection of stories primarily about Jeeves and Wooster. Many of the stories are set in New York and feature the author’s regular characters like Anatole, Aunt Dahlia, Bingo Little and Sir Roderick Glossop. Some of the stories that appear in this collection are Jeeves and the Hard-boiled Egg, Jeeves Takes Charge, Clustering Round Young Bingo, The Rummy Affair of Old Biffy and Bertie Changes His Mind.

    Jeeves Takes Charge introduces the reader to Jeeves and his arrival into Bertie Wooster’s life. He is employed as a replacement to Wooster’s previous valet who was caught thieving. The story also features Lady Florence Craye and briefly introduces the reader to Blandings Castle and Lord Emsworth. His very first task, once he takes charge of the Wooster household, is to come up with a cure for Bertie’s horrible hangover.

    He concocts a mixture of Worcester Sauce, raw egg and red pepper and coaxes him to give it a try adding that other men have found it be very refreshing after a late evening. This sets the stage for one of the sharpest, funniest and touching partnerships ever seen in the history of English literature.

    Review on Carry On, Jeeves

    I am running short of words at the moment to express the Joy after reading this book. Thanks a lot to Flipkart to deliver this on time. What I feel is, had it not being delivered on time, I would have been very upset with Flipkart but after reading this, I would have regained my spirits and would have thought of buying another book from Flipkart itself. Such was the magic!

    Excellent... love this series

    what can I say? Every time I read about Jeeves- it cracks me up and how! This is the first book in the Jeeves series - it shows how Bertie and Jeeves meet for the first time and it doesn't fail to amuse :)
