The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, . Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year’s Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine’s Day some.

But as soon as Bertie takes Gussie and Madeline's love connection into his own hands, things go (expectedly) disastrously wrong! Fortunately, Jeeves steps in to set matters straight. Visit my blog for more eBooks<<. Download from uploaded Part 1.

Ring for Jeeves book. The story opens with Jeeves's employer, Bertie Wooster, havi Ring for Jeeves features one of Wodehouse's best-known characters, Jeeves. It is the only Jeeves novel in which his employer, Bertie Wooster, does not appear (though he is mentioned). Wodehouse adapted the story from a play, Come On, Jeeves, that he had written with his lifelong friend and collaborator Guy Bolton. Ring for Jeeves - Excellent humor though a bit adventerous for the usual Jeeves. For starters Jeeves in the service of Bill Rowcester while Bertie is away in preparatory school for life in world of declining aristocracy.

The World of Jeeves also includes two later Jeeves stories, ‘Jeeves Makes an Omelette’ and ‘Jeeves and the Greasy Bird’, which appeared in A Few Quick Ones (1959) and Plum Pie (1966). An excellent guide to reading the Jeeves and Wooster stories of P G Wodehouse. As concerns Ring for Jeeves featuring Jeeves without Bertie Wooster, it is perhaps worth noting, as I mention in my post How to read P G Wodehouse: a new prescription, that although Bertie indeed does not appear in the book, his doppelgänger, Bill Rowcester, does. There is of course no city called Rowcester but there is a city called Worcester – pronounced Wooster.

Ring For Jeeves - . Bertie Wooster has gone to a residential self-help school to learn how to darn his socks. Until he re-emerges, Jeeves has signed up with Bill Rowcester (pronounced Roaster), an earl who is failing to make ends meet in trade, and yearning to sell his stately home, which has charm and damp in equal measure. In his new environment Jeeves is required to exert his mammoth brain to what would be breaking point for any normal intellect

My Man Jeeves, a book of eight stories including four about Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, was published in 1919, and three further collections, wholly consisting of Bertie and Jeeves episodes, came out in 1923, 1925 and 1930. In 1934 the first two novels, Thank You, Jeeves and Right Ho, Jeeves appeared, and another nine would follow at regular intervals. Wodehouse only wrote two more short stories featuring this pair after that. Page 22 THE USE OF REAL NAMES Throughout his established career Wodehouse regularly used real names and incidents from his experience to give his books a sound base.

I've been slowly working my way through the Jeeves and Wooster catalog and came across this interesting gem. If you've wanted to see what a Jeeves and Wooster book is like when Jeeves is given more room to be "Jeeves", this is a book for you. While Bertie is at a school learning to become more self-reliant Jeeves hires out to another Bertie-like character, Bill the Ninth Earl of Rowcester, who owns a large country home but is house poor. Bill embarks on a scheme to become a bookie which goes well until Captain Biggar makes a killing on a double and wants his payout. All will go well if they can sell the house to Mrs. Spotsworth, a rich widow from America, who loves Captain Biggar who.... Well you see - classic P.G. Wodehouse setup.

This story has Jeeves in rare form with his quotations and observations that are rarely cut off as Bertie often does. Also, Jeeves doesn't disappear through the middle of the book while the protagonist gets deeper and deeper.

Instead this is quite different in that Jeeves actually dons a disguise and assists Bill in his book-making. Also, many of Jeeves' plans don't come through. Another big difference from the Bertie books is the intrusion of the real world on the story. Most, if not all, of the other Jeeves books could be written about any time from the end of World War I and the present. But this is clearly set in 1953, when England is not doing very well at all after World War II. The Earl of Rowcester has clearly fallen on hard times and references are made to other of the upper class having problems. Heck even Bertie is mentioned; he is off to a school to learn how to darn socks, cook for himself, and what-not in the event that he can't keep Jeeves as his Gentleman's Gentleman at some time in the future.

But in the end Bertie is expelled from his school for having a local woman do his homework of sock darning and Jeeves heads back.

All-in-all a very different Jeeves story.
Thirty years or so ago, I wandered into a pharmacy in Peabody, Massachusets during a lunch break from a new job. I picked up Full Moon by Wodehouse for a dollar and began reading. That was one of those small turning points in life which can change and enrich all that comes afterwards.

According to the Wodehouse website, "Plum" has written 99 books. That is about 2 to read per year for your adult life. They can come to resemble each other so closely that after 50 or so, you begin to suspect that you have already read the one you are about to finish sometime 5 or 10 years earlier. But it doesn't matter. What is important is the immersion into the world of Wodehouse characterized by quiet contentment, eccentric but likeable people, harmless foils and genuinely absurd twists of plot. Above all is the Wodehouse use of language. No one writes or ever will write humorous dialogue better. I don't ordinarily read books of humor because, due to a likely but undetectable character defect, I do not find them funny. (The reviewer on the back cover describes knee-slapping hilarity. I work to muster a smile.) But I find the best of Wodehouse universally funny and the worst of Wodehouse forgiveable and still worth the time.

Ring for Jeeves is missing Wooster but it is fun to see Jeeves as the straight man to someone else. The humor is often provided by the red faced Captain Biggar who can't quite make the transition from equatorial African safari to English country house. In this post Victorian world of England in decline but seemingly untouched by continental wars, the ninth Earl of Rowcester is trying to sell his crumbling castle to a rich American. The path to inevitable happiness is less than smooth.

If you have finished most of the Jeeves and Blandings books but have yet to wade into earlier Wodehouse efforts, pick up this book. Written in 1953 (his 74th effort) near the height of his powers, Ring for Jeeves is unlikely to disappoint.
Sometimes when you read a novel, you want a searing look at the human condition or a sprawling epic crossing generations. At other times, you want complete fluff, light entertainment that makes you feel good while offering little real substance. In this field of whimsical words, few can outshine P.G. Wodehouse, and rarely is Wodehouse better than when he writes of Bertie Wooster, the dim but well-meaning member of the idle rich, and his omniscient valet Jeeves.

Ring for Jeeves is the only Jeeves and Wooster story without Bertie (who is off getting an education in independence and is only referred to occasionally). Instead, Jeeves is temporarily attending to William Belfry, a poor member of the nobility who has landed himself in the soup. In an effort to raise funds to properly marry his fiancée Jill, he has adopted a second identity as a bookie; this works great until an erstwhile great white hunter Biggar wins a long shot; Bill welshes on the bet (intending to pay when he has the funds) and flees to his estate, Biggar in hot pursuit.

There is hope, however, with a beautiful, wealthy widow who wants to buy the estate and give Bill more than enough money. But with this hope comes complications. She is secretly in love with Biggar, who is in turn secretly in love with her; as he is also impoverished, he feels it wrong to marry her when it would be assumed he was after her money. She is also Bill's ex-lover, causing a potential rift with Jill. There are also complications regarding a diamond pendant and an upcoming horse race. In the middle of all this is Jeeves, the calm port in the storm of troubles, who offers various solutions, some of which are more effective than others.

This is in many ways an atypical novel, hampered by Bertie's absence. Told in the third person instead of with Bertie's usually delightful narration, something is lost. In addition, Jeeves is at his best when he is at his most all-knowing; here, he seems less brilliant than usual, although still clever enough. These problems are sufficient to reduce this to a four-star effort. This is still a good book, but not a good introduction to Wodehouse or the Jeeves & Wooster stories; I recommend reading others in the series first (such as Right Ho, Jeeves; Carry On, Jeeves or Thank You, Jeeves).
