    Description

    Right Ho, Jeeves is a novel that focuses on Jeeves’s attempts to deal with the chaos caused by Bertie’s wrong advice.

    Summary Of The Book

    Right Ho, Jeeves is the sequel to the novel, Thank You, Jeeves, featuring a number of famous Wodehouse characters. The plot of the book is set mostly in Brinkley Court, which is Aunt Dahlia’s home. Bertie comes back to London, after spending several weeks at Cannes with his aunt Dahlia, and Angela, her daughter. Jeeves had been advising Gussie, Bertie’s old school friend, who was too shy to speak to his love, Madeline. Madeline is a friend of Angela, and decides to stay for a while at Brinkley Court.

    Bertie has been requested to deliver the school prizes at the local grammar school at Brinkley Court, and is terrified about doing so. He then urges Gussie to take his place to distribute the prizes, and woo Madeline as well. On receiving the news about Angela’s broken engagement, he decides to visit Brinkley Court to comfort his aunt. Aunt Dahlia is not only worried about her daughter’s broken engagement, but also the fact that she lost 500 pounds while gambling at Cannes. She is then disgusted at the thought of asking her miserly husband Tom for the money. Bertie then offers advice to Tuppy to win back Angela, Gussie to win over Madeline, and Aunt Dahlia to get her money back.

    When Bertie tries to plead Gussie’s case, Madeline thinks that he’s asking for her hand in marriage, which she refuses as she said that she loved someone else. She then describes the man, who Bertie knew was Gussie. Even after being pushed into speaking to Madeline, Gussie is yet too timid. Bertie then tries making Gussie a bit bold by making him drink some alcohol without his knowledge. Things go wrong when Gussie overdoes it with the alcohol, and proposes to Madeline, but gives a drunken speech to the grammar school. This causes Madeline to break the engagement, and then Gussie proposes to Angela, who accepts in order to anger Tuppy.

    Certain parts of this book, Right Ho, Jeeves, had also been adapted into episodes of Jeeves and Wooster, which was a TV series.

    Excellent book

    All three Jeeves novels I've read so far had me in tears of laughter. What gets you to come back to Wodehouse novels is the witty situations people find themselves in. And Bertie is, to put it in his terms, "in one dashed spot of bother" hereabouts. Suggestion: Read "Code of the Woosters" immediately after this. I read the two in reverse order, but hey, "You don't analyse such sunlit perfection..."

    good for starters

    a light read. Generously displays the brilliant writing skills of PG Wodehouse. The language is refined and witty. I have been reading since a long time, say 15 years and this was my 1st PG Wodehouse, appreciated it. Was like eating a chocolate mousse; sweet, light and smooth. Quick read. Give it to anybody who wants to initiate reading.

    Wow.

    The book is just wonderful.

    I have never used to read humour novels but I'm happy that this one is my first. When I read a few reviews about this book online, I got a fair idea about the book for I read not a single bad review.

    And I dont regret buying the book. Its just too good, especially the Prize distribution. :)

    Those who are not yet into Funny/Humour novels, this is a wonderful book to start.

    P.G.Wodehouse=Funny

    Being a Wodehouse book, it has to be funny and humorous. And it was. There are some books which have a bad ending, some which have a bad description. But this book was none of it. It has romance, suspense, jealousy, mystery and not to forget humour. In short, it can be called a remake of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
    Enough said. Now read the book and enjoy!
