#BookReview: Joy in the Morning: (Jeeves #8) by P.G. Wodehouse

On the jacket:

Trapped in the hell-hole of Steeple Bumpleigh with his bossy ex-fiancee, Florence Craye, ...Bertie finds himself walking a diplomatic tightrope.


Wodehouse is nothing short of a genius. He is also someone who grows into you. So if you are not a Wodehouse fan, you just aren't. And if you are, you are one obsessed fan!

Wodehouse is funny, he can tickle your funny bone in the most devilish way. The plot is set at Steeple Bumpleigh, residence to Aunt Agatha along with her second husband who is better known as Uncle Percy. Aunt is away and uncle consults Jeeves about an important meeting of his. To stage this meeting, without the press getting the wind of it, other characters are introduced. Bertie, who is engaged the second time, his friends Nobby and Boko who want to get married to each other, and a host of others. 

Perfectly timed subtle comdey at it's absolute best, Joy In the Morning is one of my favourite Jeeves and Bertie Wooster novels now. One cannot help but love the names Wodehouse choses for his characters - Stilton, Bertie, Boko and others. Overall, a fantastic read.

Rating: ****.5/5
