The odds are stacked against Chuffy when he falls head over heels for American heiress Pauline Stoker. Who better to help him win her over but Jeeves, the perfect gentleman's gentleman. But when Bertie, Pauline's ex-fiance finds himself caught up in the fray, much to his consternation, even Jeeves struggles to get Chuffy his fairy-tale ending.

This was fun. It didn't make me laugh out loud, though, and I sort of expected it would. The style is full of savour and whatever might complicate the situation will surely happen. A light and enjoyable read.

Now I should point out that this book was written in the 1930's and as such does contain numerous racial slurs that today's readers would find distasteful. Also I should point out that I am a great fan of Mr Wodehouse's writings, usually finding myself laughing out loud in public. However, whether or not it was the racial epithets or something else I'm not sure but I do know that I found that particular tale fell a little flat for me. Maybe I have just become immunised to this kind of humour and although it did at times make me smile, in general I found it just a tad predictable.

That said and done if you are looking for a bit of escapism amongst the privileged classes with clever writing and no sex or violence then this is a fun and easy read.
