    I was feeling a little low, I hadn t read any Wodehouse in a while, and there was The Old Reliable sitting on my shelves, calling to me Not at the level of his best work, but even mediocre Wodehouse is awfully good stuff.

    This is one of the few Wodehouse books that didn t keep me in splits from start to finish For the first 3 4, I felt like I was reading a collage of previously read works It was only after that point that the plot thickened for a while and gave some funny moments, but that didn t last too long.The characters are all familiar and ...
