This is the first book I've read by this particular author, and, on top of that, it was one choice out of several books which had been preselected for a winter reading challenge. It felt a little bit slow during the first few chapters, but that could have been a combination of the author building up speed and my reluctance to read a book I hadn't picked completely on my own. I am very pleased that I didn't put it down however. This is a prime example of British comedic wit and timing, once you can get around the older, formal speech patterns (written in 1917). Without giving anything away, my favourite characters were Eustace, Subconscious Self, and Nutty, in that order.

Typical Wodehouse. Good hearted characters getting into minor trouble and finding love. Pretty amusing, however not the best of this author that i have read. Quick read.

At the age of eleven or thereabouts women acquire a poise and an ability to handle difficult situations which a man, if he is lucky, manages to achieve somewhere in the later seventies.

The sight of Lady Wetherby's distress melted the butler's stern reserve. He unbent so far as to supply a clue. 'As I understand from cook, m'lady, the animal appears to have taken umbrage at a lack of cordiality on the part of the cat. It seems that the hape attempted to fondle the cat, but the latter scratched him; being suspicious,' said Wrench, 'of his bona fides.' He scrutinized the ceiling with a dull eye. 'Whereupon,' he continued, 'he seized her tail and threw her with considerable force. He then removed himself to the sink and began to hurl eggs at the scullery-maid.' / (Upon Lady Wetherby's arrival in the kitchen) The only calm occupant of the room was Eustace himself, who, either through a shortage of ammunition or through weariness of the pitching-arm, had suspended active hostilities, and was now looking down on the scene from a high shelf.
