    What a large pile of light comedic reading this man left behind himd he never fails to bring the reader enjoyment.In this novel, he gives us a leading lady who has to be convinced to love a rich, extremely good looking suitor, a snooping burglaratorious butler, an ex footballer in love with a Hollywood movie star, a frustrated Earl who wishes to marry the cook, his censorious daughter who keeps him in rigid lined of course, mix ups and barmy plans to bring everything to a satisfactory conclusion [...]

    These times in which we live are not good times for Earls Theirs was a great racket while it lasted, but the boom days are over So says Wodehouse of Lord Shortlands living out of the carefully measured pocket of his daughter Lady Adela If only he could raise two hundred pounds as down payment on a pub he could elope with his cook.Lord Shortlands plan is complicated by the butler competing for the affections of the cook, Stanwood Cobbold and his ex burglar valet, August Robb and the on off engage [...]

  6. Ian

    Another well written story featuring rich Americans at large in an English stately home The impecunious owner of the stately home in question, Lord Shortlands, is a terrific character and it s odd that he doesn t appear in any other Wodehouse stories The conniving butler, Spinks, adds a touch of the sinister usually reserved for private detectives and writers of vers libre.

  7. Kathleen

    I shouldn t review any Wodehouse, for the simple reason that I am a Wodehouse harlot any Wodehouse, anywhere, any time That said, I enjoyed this lesser known PGW novel The characters were well drawn and the plot typically complicated and hilarious.

  8. James

    Not quite Uncle Fred my personal favorite Not with the charm of a Blandings or Jeeves,but still it is the master at his finest Laugh out loud funny in many places Good book.

  9. Lloyd

    I ve loved all of the Wodehouse that I ve read so far but, I really, really, really loved this one, great story and great storytelling Retreating into the world of Wodehouse is the ultimate escape.

  10. Mandy

    Read for Book Riot 2017 Read Harder Challenge Read a book published between 1900 and 1950.I don t think this type of humor is my thing.

  11. Arianna

    shelfnotesDear Reader,Well That Publisher s Description up there left a little bit to be desired, eh I couldn t find any good official descriptions of the book out there, so I dug up what had to say it seems to help a little, I think Although nothing seems to be doing this book justice It s hilarious And I d expect nothing less from Wodehouse The man is a comic genius I am constantly laughing out loud while reading his novels His wit and sarcasm blend well together, producing works which you jus [...]

  12. P Dreadful

    I never imagined that I would like any work of Wodehouse which does not feature Lord Emsworth and the Empress of Blandings, but I was wrong There are twists and turns in this novel, compared to a regular Blandings novel There s a butler who looks like an aristocrat and an aristocrat who looks like a butler, a hopeless love triangle, lovers tiffs and an extremely satisfying ending In short, it s a delightful read I would recommend it to anyone who is in dire need of a good laugh.

  13. William

    Nothing significant here, but the book is a lot of fun This is a rare Wodehouse without either Wooster or Jeeves It s a deliberately silly story, with a remarkably ingenious humorous plot Mishap follows mishap The dialog is witty and the characters memorable Reading this is a fun way to spend a day or two.

  14. Sue

    A lighthearted romance in typical ironic Wodehouse style Confusions, attempted break ins, caricatured wealthy movie making Americans and equally caricatured upper class English Earls all mix in this enjoyable book

  15. Phillip

    This book isn t terrible It just isn t great The plotting is nice but not startling The characters are bland and, for me, not always sympathetic It isn t the title I would give if someone was going to read only one Wodehouse novel.

  16. J. Alfred

    This is a Jeevesless Wodehouse, and a Jeevesless Wodehouse can make one ask what one ought to make of a diminished thing The jokes, however, are excellent, and there are not one but two butlers doing impressive deeds in this novel It will probably improve your life.

  17. Matthew Hurley

    Things looked bad there towards the end, but Wodehouse and Mycroft Cardinal came through Don t know why I ever doubted them.

  18. John

    Well kore of the same really with a strange indebtedness partly to King Lear Beginning to think that Wodehouse was a frustrated burglar

  19. Amanda

    Whenever I feel even the slightest bit down, I really need to just remember to pick up some Wodehouse.

  20. Eme A

    Un lord ingl s que no tiene dinero para casarse con su cocinera es el punto de partida de esta divertida historia llena de enredos y de p caros de buen coraz n Uh uh mola

  21. Anita

    I ve never read a P.G Wodehouse I didn t like He s hilarious I m always willing to buy another one, and always willing to lend one to friends who return them.
