P.G. Wodehouse is super funny

The nice thing about this book is that it has a little bit of everything. Say you don't like the Mr. Mulliner stories very much; well, then you can skip those stories and just read about Jeeves. Also, if you haven't read much Wodehouse, this book will help you decide what characters and storylines you like best, so you that you can purchase later novels with discrimination. The one thing I don't like is that it only has one Blandings story (although it is a good one); I'd rather they switched out some of those silly Ukridge stories for more Blandings ones.

More of the Most of Mr. Wodehouse...

This delightfully daffy book was my introduction to the humor of the great Wodehouse, whom has often since saved me from sorrow and despair. A nice collection of stories about dotty Earls and demonic aunts, The Most of Wodehouse she be read and enjoyed by anyone who has a drop of anglo-philia and a sense of humor. Long live Plum!

6 stars at least!!

I'm left alone on a small island and offered just the bible and one author's works: P.G.W. is my choice.

Great Sense of Life

Wodehouse is famous for gently poking fun at British aristocracy and the not so aristocratic as well. His Jeeves and Bertie Wooster characters have become classics. The stories project such a good sense of life that reading them is therapeutic.


P.G. Wodehouse is one of my all-time favorite authors, and this is the best collection of his work I have read (although I'd also recommend "Life With Jeeves," with three of the "Jeeves" books). Every story in the book is immensely enjoyable, and it's physically impossible to read any of them without smiling. The complete novel, "Quick Service," is probably my favorite Wodehouse Work (pardon the alliteration), Jeeves and Bertie withstanding. Wodehouse's impossibly sunny style is impossible to resist, and in "Quick Service" he is at its most impossibly sunny. If your eyes are lacking in glint or your step is rather devoid of spring, then I highly recommend this book!
