Wodehouse tells 11 stories of golfing and love. ( )

Think I would’ve enjoyed these short stories more if I understood at least some golfing terms and rules. As it is, I don’t know any!

Still, the humour surrounding the golf course makes this a worthwhile read if, like me, you appreciate P. G. Wodehouse’s comic talents. ( )

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. ( )

Trust me, if I could give ten stars to this one, I would! Enough said. ( )
