What, ho! Bertie Wooster and the long-serving Jeeves are back for another rollicking adventure – this time crafted at the hand of one of my favourite authors, Sebastian Faulks.
Jeeves and Wooster are one of the most enduring double-acts in English literature; think of the duo – first put to paper by P.G. Wodehouse in 1915 – and you instantly think of fun, foppishness and a dash of retro Englishness that can’t be found in any other title.
In my opinion, Faulks has managed to match this perfectly in Jeeves And The Wedding Bells, which sees the pair enter into a typical love triangle (arguably more like an octagon by the time the book is finished…) as Bertie finds himself to be rather in the soup, battling, as he is, to be with his one true love, the unhappily betrothed Georgiana…
Sit back, pour yourself a glass of the stiff stuff and enjoy this silly, thoroughly enjoyable read – and, if you can, try to commit to memory some of Jeeves’s perfectly dry one-liners and pearls of wisdom.
