Very good tribute to the series. Wraps everything up nicely and does a fine job at imitation of Wodehouse's voice, although there are slight variations that a true devotee will notice. ( )

Mr. Faulks, I feel confident that, upon reading this volume, the muscles at the corners of Jeeves' mouth would faintly twitch. ( )

This was meant as an homage to PG Wodehouse and while it lacks the lightness of touch of Wodehouse, Faulks manages to evoke his presence well in many places. Not quite as convoluted as a Wodehouse plot, in the end it showed itself rather more twisted than it appeared initially.

Faulks isn't Wodehouse but he makes a really good attempt, and the result is nearly as hilarious as the original.

A very credible attempt at Jeeves and Wooster. Writing style is similar but not a parody, and the plot flows well. Ending is the only thing that doesn't quite fit in the Woosterverse, but it all holds together for a good read. ( )

"Bertie Wooster (a young man about town) and his butler Jeeves (the very model of the modern manservant)--return in their first new novel in nearly forty years: Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks. P.G. Wodehouse documented the lives of the inimitable Jeeves and Wooster for nearly sixty years, from their first appearance in 1915 ("Extricating Young Gussie") to the his final completed novel (Aunts Aren't Gentlemen) in 1974. These two were the finest creations of a novelist widely proclaimed to be the finest comic English writer by critics and fans alike. With the approval of the Wodehouse estate, acclaimed novelist Sebastian Faulks brings Bertie and Jeeves back to life in a hilarious affair of mix-ups and mishaps. Bertie, nursing a bit of heartbreak over the recent engagement of one Georgiana Meadowes to someone not named Wooster, agrees to "help" his old friend Peregrine "Woody" Beeching, whose own romance is foundering. Almost immediately, things go awry and the simple plan quickly becomes complicated. Jeeves ends up having to impersonate one Lord Etringham, while Bertie plays the part of Jeeves' manservant "Wilberforce"--and this all happens under the same roof as the now affianced Ms. Meadowes. From there the plot becomes even more hilarious and convoluted, in a brilliantly conceived, seamlessly written comic work worthy of the master himself"--… (more)
