As much as I liked this book, having read two full-length Jeeves' novels, I must admit to preferring the short story collections.

As with the previous book in the series, Jeeves is pushed into the background quite a lot, which is seldom the case in the short stories.

Despite this, "Right Ho, Jeeves" is an entertaining book, featuring some funny episodes. ( )

Bertie Wooster is at his fumbling best in this engaging story. One engagement is broken and needs to be mended, a second engagement may never happen if Bertie's friend, Gussie Fink-Nottle is not somehow "bucked up." Aunt Dahlia has lost big at baccarat and now must get Uncle Thomas to bankroll her women's magazine. It's up to Bertie and Jeeves to set the world right and of course, they do so in most ridiculous fashion. ( )

This has to be one of the funniest of the Jeeves and Wooster novels...Gussie Finknottle is a character you won't soon forget, and his speech at the prize-giving ceremony is to die for. This one had me laughing out loud and long,until tears sprang to my eyes.

Right Ho, Jeeves – Wodehouse
4 stars
Audio version performed by Jonathan Cecil

Bertie Wooster and his man Jeeves travel to Brinkley Court to sort out the romantic travails of Madeline and Gussie, Angela and Tuppy. They attend an historic prize giving at Market Snodsbury Grammar School and assist Aunt Dahlia in retaining the services of the culinary genius, Anatole. It’s absurd, hilarious and full of wonderful word play. The audio performance by Jonathan Cecil is absolutely ‘spot on.’

Wooster and Jeeves make me laugh out loud. This was the perfect light hearted read to place between more serious subjects.

“Jeeves,” I said, “may I speak frankly?”

“Certainly, sir.”

“What I have to say may wound you.”

“Not at all, sir.”

“Well, then——”

No—wait. Hold the line a minute. I’ve gone off the rails.

Book description
Overlook Press blurb:
The trouble which begins with Gussie Fink-Nottle wandering the streets of London dressed as Mephistopheles reaches its awful climax in his drunken speech to the boys of Market Snodsbury Grammar School. For Bertie Wooster's old friend has fallen in love with Madeline Bassett and, as usual, makes a hash of the affair until Jeeves comes to the rescue. In the meantime, Jeeves must also solve the mystery of the white mess jacket, while sorting out the lives of Bertie's cousin, Angela, her mother, and her mother's French chef. In short, a normal working day for that prince among gentlemen's gentlemen in what must be a candidate for the name of funniest novel in the English language.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140284095, Paperback)

Jeeves has established his justifiable reputation as an invaluable solver of problems of all kinds. However, when Gussie Fink-Nottle follows Jeeve's advice to attend a fancy dressed party rigged out as Mephistopheles, he comes badly unstuck. Could it be that Jeeves has lost his grip? Bertie decides that Jeeves is not the only onion in the hash and he embarks on a plan that will, he believes, make Madeline become engaged to Gussie, that will re-unite cousin Angela with Tuppy and will make Uncle Tom cough up some cash for Aunt Dahlia. However, as you may expect, Bertie's schemes have a knack of going awry and, before long, everything and everyone is in a state of confusion.
