Bertie Wooster so often in the past, may finally prove to be the unwitting cause of this young master s undoing in Jeeves and the Tie that Binds The Junior Ganymede, a club for butlers in London s fashionable West End, requires every member to provide details about the fellow he is working for When information is inadvertently revealed to a dangerous source, it falls to Jeeves to undo the damage Dear Mr Wodehouse Thank you for the delightful visit to a time when the sun never set on the British empire and a wealthy idiot could spend his days at his aunt s estate in the English countryside and only worry about avoiding becoming engaged It was lovely spending a few hours with the best gentlemen s gentlemen ever and that dear fool Bertie Thank you for not aging them or trying to make them modern A It was one of those heavy, sultry afternoons when nature seems to be saying to itself, Now, shall I, or shall I not, scare the pants off these people with a hell of a thunderstorm One of the fine mornings Bertie Wooster decided life could not become better He was right it could not, but it very well could become worse Right after finishing breakfast he received a phone call from his aunt Dahlia the good one, not to be confused with the bad one Agatha who according to Bertie eats nailsIt was one of those heavy, sultry afternoons when nature seems to be saying to itself, Now, shall I, or shall I not, scare the pants off these people with a hell of a thunderstorm One of the fine mornings Bertie Wooster decided life could not become better He was right it could not, but it very well could become worse Right after finishing breakfast he received a phone call from his aunt Dahlia the good one, not to be confused with the bad one Agatha who according to Bertie eats nails and performs virgin sacrifices at the full moon Apparently she decided to help a son of her former schoolmate the said son nicknamed Ginger also happened to be an old buddy of Bertie The guy was running a local election Aunt Dahlia asked Bertie to come and help We all know politics is a dirty business, but nobody ever had so much troubles being involved in it as our poor Bertie This should be enough for a brief outline of the beginning of the plot I will only mention that the people that kept appearing in the last books made an encore here Aunt Dahlia, Madeline Basset, Florence Craye, and Roderick Spode Speaking honestly at this point of the book I got a little tired of this crowd and would gladly see somebody else, like Betrie s biggest nemesis, Aunt Agatha First things first we need to acknowledge P.G Wodehouse was 90 when he wrote the book I can challenge anybody including myself to write something at least half as funny at this age I do not think there will be many takers Having said this, the plot feels familiar, some of the situations are rewrites of those from the previous books and some of the jokes are copied verbatim For this reason the plot feels somewhat stale, but Wodehouse s stale is still miles ahead of 99% of humorous literature Once again, keep in mind the author s age I gave the book 3 stars and weak stars at that, but this rating only reflects he story s standing among the rest of the series As a standalone it is quite good and a recommended read to any fan of P.G Wodehouse It was just me at this point fourteenth installment I was only mildly amused, but I do not think I wasted my time read it Aw, this makes me sad Much Obliged, Jeeves is one of Wodehouse s last books in the Jeeves Wooster series, just when it s starting to show some life after so many books by rote.The usual plot and characters are all in order Finicky friends and daffy family members all seemingly conspire to thrust Bertie Wooster neck deep into the soup, then jam him between a rock and a hard place Hovering about the periphery is the all knowing, gentleman s gentleman extraordinaire Jeeves, ready to extract hi Aw, this makes me sad Much Obliged, Jeeves is one of Wodehouse s last books in the Jeeves Wooster series, just when it s starting to show some life after so many books by rote.The usual plot and characters are all in order Finicky friends and daffy family members all seemingly conspire to thrust Bertie Wooster neck deep into the soup, then jam him between a rock and a hard place Hovering about the periphery is the all knowing, gentleman s gentleman extraordinaire Jeeves, ready to extract his master and set all to rights.Where this book differs from other Wodehouses is in the little details Bertie s narration makes it plain that Much Obliged, Jeeves comes later in the Wodehouse oeuvre by referencing past exploits, and I m not just talking about that scripture prize he won in school or the article he wrote for Milady s Boudoir on What the well dressed man is wearing I m not even talking about the big reveal that Jeeves actually has a first name The real difference is in how Jeeves interacts with Wooster It s not a vast shift to the left, but there is a slight subversion in his tone, a sort of sauciness to his lip service, a kind of sass to his soliloquy Yes indeed, Jeeves expresses himself here withthan just a raised brow and I found it shocking SHOCKING, I SAY Seriously though, it was nice to see an old familiar character being appropriately stretched a bit After all the patience straining nonsense Jeeves endures, it seems quite natural for such a clearly superior mind to grow a tad surly after such trying times I only wish Wodehouse had started this process and expanded upon it years, nay, decades prior.In summary, Much Obliged, Jeeves is a solid book in the series, but if you re a newcomer, I d suggest starting somewhere earlier Perhaps, Right Ho, Jeeves or The Code of the Woosters would besuitable These books don t need to be read sequentially, and you d be fine if you read this one first, but I think the Wodehouse newb would be better severed with aelementary introduction Wouldn t want to muddle the grey matter, now would we I was going through the Jeeves Wooster list on my GR bookshelf and found that I had missed out adding this book I think this is the last in the series, where Bertie is finally rid of the danger of getting married to either the intellectual Florence Craye or the maudlin Madeline hey, that rhymes.But the crux of this story is an election in Market

before it is reclaimed by Jeeves I was thinking that if such a thing really existed today, how the news channels will be slavering after it Trivia It is in this novel that we hear Jeeves s first name for the first and last time
