I think this is the first Jeeves book and it shows. Many entertaining stories, some not so much.
Definitely feels like they written to be read separately, rather than collected, as there is a lot of information repetition.
Still, an entertaining read that is light while still having smart writing.

A few of these early stories are below par, but as the farcical plots get more complicated, everything gets funnier.

another wonderful book of british humor. the first three (the three about jeeves) are the best. reggie pepper is in the others and he is just not quite as good

My first introduction to Jeeves and Wooster was through the Fry & Laurie TV series many years ago. It took me this long to actually try one of the books and see just how well they did at interpreting the characters. And I have to say that they did a fantastic job.

This is a collection of short stories set in New York and despite the title, only about half actually featuring Jeeves & Wooster. The rest are about Reggie Pepper and his butler, who seem to be a precursor to the better characters.

I was not that big a fan of Reggie, he seemed a bit flat after Bertie (as his stories are in the middle of the book). Not as daft and funny though there are some glimmers of the future changes. There was also no Jeeves and as he's obviously an important part of the dynamic duo, it left those stories lacking.

The actual Jeeves and Wooster stories were inane and funny. The misadventures that they manage to create and the solutions they come up with are ridiculous and highly entertaining.
