about

A gloriously witty novel from Sebastian Faulks using P.G. Wodehouse’s much-loved characters, Jeeves and Wooster, fully authorised by the Wodehouse estate.

Due to a series of extenuating circumstances, Bertie Wooster, recently returned from a very pleasurable sojourn in Cannes, finds himself at the home of Sir Henry Hackwood. Bertie is, of course, familiar with the set-up at a country house. He can always rely on Jeeves, his loyal butler to have packed the correct number of trousers and is a natural at cocktail hour. But this time, it is Jeeves who can be found in the drawing room, while Bertie finds himself below stairs. 

As is so often the case, love is the cause of the confusion. You see, Bertie met Georgiana, Georgiana liked Bertie, the feeling was mutual. Though he could be said to suffer from a reputation for flirtations, it looks as though this is the real deal. However, Georgiana is a ward of Sir Henry Hackwood and, in order to maintain his beloved Melbury Hall, Hackwood has already struck a deal would see Georgiana becoming Mrs Rupert Venables. Meanwhile, Peregrine ‘Woody’ Beeching is trying to regain the trust of his fiancée Amelia. But why would this necessitate Bertie having to pass himself off as a valet when he has never so much as made a cup of tea? Could it be that every loyal, self-effacing, Kant loving, Jeeves has an ulterior motive? But future happiness is not the only thing at stake: there is a frightfully important cricket match and the loaded question of who one fancies for Ascot. 

Evoking the sunlit days of a time gone-by, Jeeves and the Wedding Bells is a delightfully witty story of love, reputation and mistaken intentions.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book saw me through a partucuarly nast bout of gastroentiritis and the obligatory 48 hours off work that comes with said illness. I'd not read any PG Wodehouse previously but had read Faulks before and knew he was good for a yarn. A newspaper review said the book was funny and I desperately needing cheering up. It worked; this book is laugh out loud, warm smile in your belly, love the world funny. Can't measure it against the originals but it certainly stands alone as a great read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wedding Well written fun with no real substance but what do you expect for a Christmas read. Surprised it got such a good review in the Spectator, but fun all the same.
