Though I've never really found that authors can truly "Do" another author, I found that Faulks did a grand job in his ode to P G Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster. I'm a big fan of the books and the BBC TV shows based on these novels, so I was thrilled to see the upcoming release of this book. Getting an advanced copy to read and review was a special added treat, and it did not disappoint. Bertie and Jeeves are at it again, off to save the day, causing more confusion than solutions but giving this reader a jovial masterpiece of a reading ride in the process! Bertie's old chum, Woody Beeching is in a pickle. His true love, Amelia, has put off their engagement because of his flirtatious actions with another woman. Off go Bertie and Jeeves to save the day. How, you might say. Well, it's all very simple you see, Bertie will become the manservant to Jeeves at the fair lady's house. Jeeves , as Lord Etringham has become very chummy with his host because of his mastery of picking winning horse races---and money was always in the need to keep their estates in the black. Many twists and turns later, and happy solutions were found all around.  I thoroughly enjoyed returning to the always strange lives of Bertie, the bumbling master, and his always humble genius manservant, Jeeves! The characters remained those I so fondly remember. Perhaps more adventures are waiting to tell themselves in our future---hope prevails!

Wonderfully realized Wodehouse homage! I started this book with a little surge of trepidation wondering if I was treading on 'Plum's' grave so to speak. I needn't have worried. It's very well written in the Wodehouse style. Plenty of breezy chit chat and quotes from Jeeves. I'd say Faulks did a truly awesome job of sounding like Wodehouse. I was a little concerned about the ending and how it would all work out and I think Faulks did a great job of making it sound plausible.

A tribute to P. G. Wodehouse - and it is enjoyable!!!! Highly recommended!!! Another great novel on the Nook is "The Partisan" by William Jarvis. This novel is based on actual events during World War II. Both books deserve A+++++

Go back and read the orginals still in print. Best read on a hot summer day wth a glass of ice tea. A lost world indeed and one that never was but fun anyway. not a long tale and you might prefer to borrow
