Stiff Upper Lip JeevesCk Spode now raised Stiff Upper PDFEPUBto the peerage And Major Brabazon Plank the peppery explorer who wants to lay Bertie out coldThank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard but is this gentleman all he see. This book was first published in the same month I was born In fact in the UK only two days before I was born though five months earlier in the US – which surprised me somewhat I really like the idea that there might have been someone uickly reading this over the weekend that I was born and laughing away cheerfully at it all Yes I like that idea very muchWooster is truly one of the great narrative voices in English Literature There are moments when it is nearly dangerous to listen to him as I drive The man who reads them a Jonathan Cecil ought to have been given a K years ago I’ve never heard a better reader for audio books in my life His timing is immaculate and he brings the subtle and not so subtle humour of these books to the fore He has Wooster’s slightly baffled and bewildered if that is the word I’m looking for it starts with a B anyway whatever it is voice to a T There are very clever jokes – like talking about Stinker’s left hook and how adroit it is adroit being from the French for ‘to the right’ The plot is never as simple as you think it is going to be – I mean you know how things are basically going to work out but the moment you think you know what is going to happen next something totally unexpected occurs often occasioned by Jeeves – who has a minor but essential role in all of these books and generally it is something that has a very funny comment to make on – well what it means to be human I guessI really can’t rave about these books enough I’ve finally tracked some down in a secondhand bookshop but they are as rare as hens’ teeth – which is hard to imagine as the idea they should ever be out of print beggar’s belief You would think someone would have thought of printing The Great Big Book of Jeeves and Wooster – or some such thing – I’d have bought a copy – I might even have bought a couple of copies I’ve friends they would read this stuff too I’m uite sureThere is a bit of this towards the end where Wooster is talking about a man who thinks he that is Bertie is a kleptomaniac and the man is an adventurer who is forever nipping off to the jungles of the and such places Anyway Bertie is forced to the conclusion that the native aboriginal peoples of Brazil really aren’t much chop – as they have had ample opportunity to kill this old fool and clearly have not availed themselves of the occasion as it has presented itself – and the punch line is when he says something to the effect that “And these natives have the audacity to call themselves savages” The other bit that made me laugh and laugh was where Bertie was being accused of plotting to steal an ornament and while being so accused is told to stop saying Oh or Aye I understand that might not sound funny – but try it in context and it is close to the funniest thing I’ve ever heard And of course the line about finding it difficult to continue a conversation when someone begins it by saying “So” – oh dear sheer geniusI think I’ve liked this one the most so far although I’ve liked all of them the most as they have gone along They are a pure delight

Bertie Wooster is back at Totleigh Towers fighting off the threat of marriage with dippy Madeline Bassett in the charmingly delightful Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves Good ol' school chum Gussie Fink Nottle's engagement to Madeline is all that's saving Bertie from a future strapped to a sap A forced vegetarian diet could tip the scalesThe horror is readily apparent all over newt fancier Fink Nottle's mapStiffy Byng Stinker Pinker Sir Watkyn Bassett and a bevy of other recurring characters show up to create the usual havoc that is constantly disturbing Wooster's gay bachelor life Lucky for them they have a Jeeves in their lives to straighten it all out Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves is the same old Wodehouse fare but even so In fact I would go so far as to call this The Code of the Woosters Part 2 It's got most all of the same characters The plot is not terribly dissimilar It never reaches the uality of Code but then few of Wodehouse's books do Perhaps there was an aspiration to repeat the success of Code but Stiff lacks the same panache It meanders It chats Whereas Code got into it got things moving Stiff also relies somewhat on the reader being familiar with the characters and their past Honestly this book is for people already familiar with the Totleigh Towers world

Need all the help Jeeves can provide There are good eggs present such as Gussie Fink Nottle and the Rev 'Stinker' Pinker But there also is Sir Watkyn Bassett JP enemy of all the Woosters hold dear to say nothing of his daughter Madeline and Roderi. “You wouldn’t think it to look at him because he’s small and shrimplike and never puts on weight but Gussie loves food Watching him tucking into his rations at the Drones a tapeworm would raise its hat respectfully knowing that it was in the presence of a master” 35 stars This isn’t top shelf Wodehouse but it’s still a fairly humorous entertaining read filled with all of the shenanigans close shaves and cleversilly wordplay that make these books so much fun Jeeves as usual manages to tactfully save the day He’s also eventually able to pry Wooster from his highly uestionable okay okay downright hideous Alpine hat which let me tell you is no mean feat My favorite part “My father’s not so bad if you rub him the right way”“Very possibly but if you think a busy man like myself has time to go around rubbing fathers either with or against the grain you are greatly mistaken” Wooster is adorable as always A bit of an ass of course But he firmly and decisively draws the line at father rubbing Sort of
