When you read the title of this review, you probably immediately thought of Jeeves the Butler from Ask.com, who was more than happy to find the answers to your queries before his unfortunate retirement. Well, P.G. Wodehouse is the creator of the lovable butler we are all so familiar with.
Just like the Ask.com Jeeves, Wodehouse’s Jeeves the Butler is a problem solver. He has earned quite a reputation for solving any pickle that friends and family have gotten themselves into. Despite his successes, his employer Bertie Wooster feels that he is “losing his touch” and tries to lighten Jeeves’ load by solving a few problems himself. Bertie tries to advise his Aunt Dahlia in finding a way to ask her husband for more money after she lost it while gambling. He tries to help his cousin Angela reconcile with Tuppy Glossop after she breaks off their engagement. He attempts to help his newt-lover friend Gussie Fink-Nottle attract the attention of Madeline Basset, whom he loves. He tries to take on all this without the assistance of Jeeves, and fails miserably.
Right Ho, Jeeves is a great book that will have you laughing at Bertie’s misfortunes and the many battles between employee and employer, where Jeeves tries to outsmart Bertie and succeeds.
Side Note: Right Ho, Jeeves is apparently the second book in a series.
