    One thought on “The Code of the Woosters

    1. BillKerwin on said:

      A classic piece of Wodehouse silliness, involving Bertie Wooster, his formidable Aunt Dahlia and (of course) Jeeves in a scheme to steal an 18th century cow-creamer during a weekend party at an English country house. Written in 1939, it also features a would-be fascist dictator of England named Spode, head of an organization called "The Black Shorts" (by the time he started his movement, the shirts had already been taken). Laugh-out-loud funny. Highly recommended.

      No one weaves a plot like Wodehouse. Also, if you have a cow creamer, guard it with your life.The 2012 re-read:Aunt Dahlia dispatches Bertie to Totleigh Towers to purlorn a silver cow creamer coveted by his uncle Tom from Sir Watkyn Basset. Unfortunately, Bertie has his work cut out for him in the form of Stiffy Byng and Madeline Basset. Can Bertie escape with the cow creamer without winding up married to either woman?This is my second reading of Code of the Woosters and I can definitely say the [...]

      A buddy read with a secret group which includes Dan 2.0 and Erin.For those who somehow manage to avoid knowing anything about this classic British humor series the main heroes are Bertie Wooster and his servant Jeeves. Bertie's job is to get into all kind of absurd and improbable (from the normal logic point of view) situations arising from his noble attempts to help his countless aunts and friends and Jeeves' job is to get him out of yet another trouble using some truly ingenious tricks. This t [...]

      Oh my god this is so, so, so funny. I was discussing Wodehouse with someone yesterday and, as he put it, "There are passages that you want to chase people around the house with, saying, 'Wait! Wait! Just listen to this bit!'" Haven't laughed so hard in a good long while. God, but I love Wodehouse.

      Gussie (Augustus) Fink-Nottle, is getting married, the shy, newt lover, (men need silly hobbies, to keep sane), to lovely Madeline Bassett, an unlikely pair, daughter of Sir Watkyn Bassett. A stern former magistrate, that the unfortunate Bertie, met officially, once, not a happy memory. Madeline, was Wooster's ex- fiancee (he didn't want to be one), the marriage averse Bertie, had given a bachelor party, for his friend, at the Drones club. It was a drunken, deplorable affair, which might have be [...]

      Classic Wodehouse. It doesn't get any better than thistually it doesn't get much different than this either. Perhaps that's not entirely fair. For me at least, The Code of the Woosters contains some of my favorite scenes and some of Wodehouse's most memorable characters. Herein his hero Bertie Wooster is at his daffiest, unable to accomplish the simplest of tasks, berating a cow creamer, without getting himself in thick soup. Soon after he's got a Bassett and that malodorous Spode badgering him [...]

      "We must say to ourselves: "What would Napoleon have done?" He was the boy in a crisis. He knew his onions."Long have I resisted the fatal charm of P.G. Wodehouse. My previous forays into his oeuvre have been lacklustre. That was until, of course, The Code of the Woosters and I crossed paths. "He paused and swallowed convulsively, like a Pekingese taking a pill."So scrumptious. I should of known that I would of fallen into the trap sooner or later, given my proclivity for novels of a certain kin [...]

      “It’s an extraordinary thing—every time I see you, you appear to be recovering from some debauch. Don’t you ever stop drinking? How about when you are asleep?” As usual, I'm behind on reading goals - being the last to finish this buddy read with Evgeny and Dan 2.0My first foray into Wodehouse’s writing, and I’ve fallen for him. The comical and cleverly coined style made this one a fun read, even if the plot only left behind a three-star impression.I finally see where the "Jeeves" c [...]

      I'm always shocked to find that hardly anyone in these United States has ever heard of or read the works of Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse. most indians who read english stumble upon his works sooner or later-more so, I dare say, than the english themselves.I've always maintained that if a Wodehouse book cannot lift your spirits, you must be pretty close to suicide.Amazing plots, memorable characters and superb prose. Long winding complex sentences that never fail to incite peals of laughter, lo [...]

      "You might put it that Hell's foundations are quivering. That is not overstating it, Jeeves?""No, sir."P.G. Wodehouse was an English writer whose career spanned over seventy years and whose work included almost 100 novels, numerous short stories, 15 plays and 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. Despite his impressive resume and reputation as a "master of English prose", I, unfortunately, wouldn't have known he existed if it hadn't been for Rory Gilmore. I guess that makes me more of a B [...]

      Many consider this book to be the funniest of the Jeeves/ Wooster team, and I agree (though IMO, I would give that crown to Right Ho, Jeeves) that it is indeed extremely hilarious. Bertie, saved from the scaffold (i. e. marriage to Madeline Basset who thinks that the stars are God's daisy chain and every time a fairy sheds a tear, a star is born) at the last moment by Jeeves, finds himself ensconced in the country estate of the girl's father along with Gussie Fink-Nottle, her fiancée and Roderi [...]

      Meh. For whatever it's worth, I pinky swear I'll review this one.

    14. Algernon on said:

      Wodehouse loves to pepper his texts with all kinds of wacky similes, so I would like to start my review with one too: reading one of his novels is like drinking a glass of chilled champagne, on a sunny morning, reclining in a chaisez longue on an impeccably trimmmed English lawn. And Code of the Woosters is a Grand Cru - one of the best years. My previous Wodehouse novels were written in third person, this time Bertie Wooster is the narrator and I noticed an increase in goofiness and general bon [...]

      I read an unusual question the other day. It asked, "In a sensationalist age, when everything quickly becomes a matter of passionate intensity, is there a place for the airy trifle?"There are two correct answers to this question. The first is 'Yes, definitely.' The second, and best way to answer this is to just hand the person asking a copy of any Jeeves & Wooster book or, for that matter, anything written by the brilliantly hilarious P.G. Wodehouse. In this insane world, who doesn't need a [...]

    17. Trevor on said:

      I really enjoyed this one. But my favourite joke in the whole thing was when Wooster refers to someone as a ‘sensitive plant’ and is told, “You know your Shelley!” To which he replies, “Am I?” That just about sums up everything I love about Wodehouse. The poetic reference Wooster only uses because he steals it from Jeeves and then his utter bewilderment at what he takes to be a bizarre adjective being used to refer to him. Utter joy.And the women in this one are even more selfish and [...]

      Sweet gingersnaps, this book is the definition of hilarious. I laughed until I cried.In a nutshell: READ. IT. Cancel the appointments, pretend you don't have a job, put your magnum opus on hold, skip the lessons about learning how to make a Joyful Noise, call off the wedding, forget about sleeping, do whatever it takes to make time in your schedule to read this gem. You will never regret it. Toodle-oo, chums. I toddle off to break the last surviving mantelpiece ornament (read the book, you'll un [...]

      Addendum, January the 3rd 2014Well last night I went to see the West End show: ‘Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense’, which is an adaptation of ‘The Code of the Woosters’. My lovely fiancée bought us tickets for Christmas, which truly thrilled me whilst also making me a little anxious. Could any adaptation of what is one of my favourite books live up to my lofty expectations? If it didn’t reach the heights, could I hide my disappointment from my love and thus not seem ungrateful [...]

      I’ve been missing out. For years, P. G. Wodehouse and his hilarious works of fiction have been out of my mind and I knew nothing about them. But thanks to and his colaborators, I’m really pleased to have such books

      The first time I got hit on the head by a bread roll was at the age of twenty one. As a grammar school boy I was an obvious target. The assailant was a Hooray Henry (the generic term for a member of the British minor aristocracy) and the venue a restaurant in the City of London. I felt quite privileged. Many people never have the chance to see the English upper classes recreate a food fight straight out of PG Wodehouse. From an anthropological perspective it was quite wonderful, although crumbs [...]

      Being a miserable old curmudgeon, it generally takes a lot make me laugh out loud (and I’ve seen every episode of 'Last of the Summer Wine' too), however, despite this, I always make a point of never taking any PG Wodehouse with me if I happen to travelling on public transport.Drawing attention to oneself on a bus or train is generally a hateful thing, and I am a man particularly averse to the angry shuffle of newspapers. So, since reading Wodehouse produces from me all manner of involuntary g [...]

    24. Stephen on said:

      This is a nice "feel good" story that will both entertain and genuinely brighten your mood. It's the kind of story you read when you need to recharge your happy battery and need a big fat smile. Bernie Wooster is especially attrative if you are a fan of British comedy, which I have a real weakness for. The dry humor, the purposely clever phrasing and the awkward social settings were right in my wheelhouse. It reminded me of a gentler, less acerbic (and, admittedly, less funny) version of the 70' [...]

      I'm currently experiencing a confluence of multiple factors that tend to cause me to read less (moving, freelance work, being mired in the middle of a difficult non-English book) but I can always fit in a little Wodehouse. This is, of course, delightful. It's odd that I've read some Jeeves and Wooster stories many, many times (an omnibus was one of the few books I brought with me for a year in Germany) but others I've read only once or not at all. I'm going to have to make an effort to look up t [...]

      We seem to be inundated with comics these days. In fact, you could probably toss a pebble over your shoulder randomly and hit one. (Actually, you might be doing all of us a favor if you made it a very large rock instead of a pebble.) No matter how many folks may call themselves comics, it's my opinion that, at any time, there are only a small number of people who can actually make the rest of us laugh. P.G. Wodehouse was (is) one of those people.The Code of the Woosters, while it is a very funny [...]

    27. Don on said:

      It's quite possible that a world without Wodehouse would be a world without Three's Company, a world without Frasier, a world, in short, without convoluted situations from which much comedy is derived. That is to say, the old s.c. The mind reels.There's something to be said for a prolific author that can at once delight so many and fail to register with even more. Some of my best friends are non-Wodehouse readers, which is to say that none of my friends appreciate the Wodehousian wit. For better [...]

      "She turned the bean away, no doubt to hide a silent tear, and there ensued a brief interval during which she swabbed the eyes with a pocket handkerchief and I, averting my gaze, dipped the beak into a jar of pot-pourri which stood on the piano." (207)This Jeeves and Wooster novel started off rather slowly, and I did not find myself caring for it all that much across the first couple of chapters. Mostly for two reasons: (1) there was quite a bit of rehash from pervious stories, and (2) the story [...]

      5 StarsIt’s summer again! And summer means lying out on the lawn with a cold drink and a Jeeves and Wooster. The UK’s been having somewhat of a heatwave recently so actually the ‘lawn’ was more like ‘straw’ and I missed the company of my beautiful dogdog who passed away last month, but otherwise it’s as close to perfect Jeeves and Wooster conditions as you can get and I was able to spend a very enjoyable day snorting to myself over Bertie’s misadventures.There is, of course, noth [...]

      Without question the BEST of the Jeeves and Wooster novels--and I have read them all. I last read this worthy tome in 1987 and had fogotten what a masterpiece it is, brilliantly crafted like a fine symphony, with all characters and plot devices coming together at just the right moment to deliver the maximum hilarity.I don't think I can recap the plot except to say that it concerns two loving couples torn asunder through various misunderstandings, a stolen 17th century "cow creamer", a little bro [...]
