I do love Wodehouse and there is at least a smile if not a laugh on every page; so three stars?
Where I think I went wrong was in treating this as a novel. It really is not, it is a collection of short stories which if dipped into occasionally and individually would probably be very enjoyable. As a whole, I (unfortunately) couldn't wait to get it finished. ( )

A bad read, barring a couple of stories, my lack of golf experience not withstanding. And I am pretty sure my ignorance/non-interest of golf wasn't the sole reason for my not-so-good experience with the book.

2.5/5 ( )

Silliness about a silly game. Up to snuff and radiating wit. ( )
