The first of the eleven Jeeves and Wooster novels, Thank You, Jeeves bolts out of the gate, instantly funnier than the best of the (very funny) 33 short stories that preceded it. The novel opens with Bertie's horror at being forced to choose between his current flat and his beloved instrument, the banjolele, which his neighbours will not stomach. He makes the only reasonable choice - the banjolele, of course - only to find Jeeves handing in his notice. From there, it's one long descent into madness! ( )

If you’ve ever wondered how Wooster would survive without Jeeves to bail him out of his predicaments, the answer is, not well. This installment gives you the scoop on a “Jeeves-less” existence for Bertie, and neither seems to be happy without the other. Bertie ends up with a new valet, Brinkley, who would win the worst valet ever contest, if there were such a thing. Jeeves still can’t stop himself from advising and rescuing Bertie. It’s all good – if outlandish – fun, and a great read for escapism. In the end, Jeeves finds his purpose in life – to quietly be superior to the fumbling Bertie – and Bertie finds he can finally relax, knowing that Jeeves is there in the background, waiting to save Bertie’s bacon whenever necessary. Well done, Sir Wodehouse! ( )

Feb. 2021 reread via unabridged digital audiobook from Audible Plus lending library

So funny! I had forgotten some of the details so I'm glad that I found this audiobook in Audible's Plus catalog. Jonathan Cecil is such a marvellous narrator who really enhances the humor of the book. ( )

The first full-length, plotted novel in the Jeeves series shows off what he can do for, with especially good results in comic effect of situation and running gags, and the language-and-literature jokes are starting to emerge. Marred by racialized language and situations. ( )

"I fancy the individual you have in mind, sir, is the poet Keats, who compared his emotions on first reading Chapman's Homer to those of stout Cortex when with eagle eyes he stared at the Pacific.... And all his men looked at each other with a wild surmise, silent upon a peak in Darien."

Book description
Overlook Press blurb:
While pursuing the love of his life, American heiress Pauline Stoker, Lord 'Chuffy' Chuffnell borrows the services of Jeeves, the perfect gentleman's gentleman. But when Chuffy finds out that Jeeves's employer, Bertie Wooster, was once engaged to Pauline himself - until the engagement was broken by her tough-egg father, abetted by loony-doctor Sir Roderick Glossop - such fearsome complications ensue that even Jeeves has difficulty securing a happy ending.
