When Catsmeat Pirbright and Gussie Fink Nottle come to Bertie Wooster with their lady problems he has no choice but to help Before you know it Gussie's in stir Bertie's pretending to be Gussie and Catsmeat is pretending to be Jeeves Can Bertie get Jeeves to sort things outSpoiler alert YesWay back in 2012 ish I decided to reread all of the Jeeves novels I read in that hazy time before Goodreads Then I forgot about that goal until a few days agoI read this one ages ago so it was like a new book in a lot of ways The only parts I remembered were the allusions to Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came since I'm a Dark Tower junkie and the bit with the coshFirst the primer for anyone who has never read a Jeeves book before Bertie Wooster is one of the idle rich in Edwardian England and Jeeves is his valet or Gentleman's Personal Gentleman who specializes in extricating him from troubleLike pretty much all of PG Wodehouse's Jeeves tales this one involves romantic misunderstandings and Bertie Wooster trying his best to sort them out without Jeeves Once things are suitably dire Jeeves swoops in with his super brain and works things out Not usually by coshing someone thoughWodehouse's tales always have a superb rhythym and this one is no exception You can feel the reversals of fortune coming several pages away Since I forgot most of this one I thought for sure Bertie would wind up in stir for a month without the option It was all sweetness and light by the end though as it usually isThe Jeeves books all tend to blend together in my mind since they all have the same basic plot but Wodehouse manages to take things into different directions each time keeping them fresh Wodehouse does his one trick very very well I suppose While I still put The Code of the Woosters at the top of the Jeeves list this one is still in the upper echelon of Wooster and Jeeves books Four out of five stars

T Gussie's simpering fiancée Madeline may turn her wide eyes on Bertie instead It's a brilliant plan until Gussie himself turns up imitating Bertram Wooster After that only the massive brain of Jeeves himself in disguise can set things rig. ‘Still’ I said feeling that it was worth trying ‘it’s part of the great web what’‘Great web’‘One of Marcus Aurelius’s cracks He said “Does aught befall you It is good It is part of the destiny of the Universe ordained for you from the beginning All that befalls you is part of the great web”’From the brusue manner in which he damned and blasted Marcus Aurelius I gathered that just as had happened when Jeeves sprang it on me the gag had failed to bring balm I hadn’t had much hope that it would I doubt as a matter of fact if Marcus Aurelius’s material is ever the stuff to give the troops at a moment when they have just stubbed their toe on the brick of Fate You want to wait till the agony has abatedThis was ridiculously good fun I love Jeeves and Wooster series but some stories are better than others and this was one of the best ones Dare I say it was on the same level as the one with Aunt Dahlia and the cow creamer I like that one too Anyway in this one Bertie is trying to help a couple of his friends to untangle some obstacles in their love lives and of course just makes it worse What stood out from the start in this one however is that Bertie is not just having to deal with one of his own aunts but also no less than five aunts of one of his friends' betrothedand five aunts is really than anyone should be expected to deal withWhile there is slapstick galore in this story we also get to see Bertie from new angles For example we learn that he as many of us do resorts to reading to calm his nerves I have generally found on these occasions when the heart is heavy that the best thing to do is to curl up with a good goose flesher and try to forget and fortunately I had packed among my effects one called Murder At Greystone Grange I started to turn its pages now and found that I couldn’t have made a sounder move It was one of those works in which Baronets are constantly being discovered dead in libraries and the heroine can’t turn in for a night without a Thing popping through a panel in the wall of her bedroom and starting to chuck its weight about and it was not long before I was so soothed that I was able to switch off the light and fall into a refreshing sleep which lasted as my refreshing sleeps always do till the coming of the morning cup of tea
