Wodehouse Collection - 10 Books (Collection)

P.G. Wodehouse


PG Wodehouse is widely recognised as a comic genius. His brilliantly observed writing has introduced us to some of the most memorable characters in fiction and he places these priceless protagonists in vivid and richly-drawn settings - France in the 1930s, the sleepy village of Rudge-in-the-Vale, glamorous Hollywood and a castle in Hampshire. Chorus girls, con men, arch-villains, henpecked husbands and loyal school chums abound and, of course, butlers feature heavily. Life in Wodehouse's world is complex and often farcical, but readers can't help but delight in these enchanting and hilariously funny situations where very little is asked of you other than a willingness to suspend disbelief. Prepare to be riotously entertained.

Great set! -

I love Wodehouse's writing and this set is great value.

Amusing light read -

Great value book set. Enjoyed some books more than others. Mainly dim but nice upper class chaps who get into love triangles and difficult situations but manage to bungle their way to a happy ending.

"Well-crafted fun & froth" -

The writing is to savour, with much sly wit. The tales are perfect: exposition/drama/happily resolved conclusion. Excellent fare for a wintry afternoon!

"As expected, light reading for fun!" -

Having enjoyed Jeeves & Wooster on TV, this collection lived up to my expectations of light comedy with typical 1920's/30's daffy heroines & sometimes brainless heroes. I haven't enjoyed "Uckridge" as much as the others, though.
