Free Classics: “Right Ho, Jeeves” by P.G. Wodehouse

Every Friday, Marilyn Knapp Litt, who blogs at ClassicKindle.com, brings us her recommendation of a free classic book to discover (or rediscover) on Kindle. Find more of Marilyn’s recommendations at her blog, ClassicKindle.com, a guide to the best free and inexpensive classic literature for the Kindle. You can also get Marilyn’s blog on Kindle and I recommend that you “Like” the Classic Kindle Facebook page as well so you don’t miss anything. Here’s Marilyn’s post:

Yes, you should buy a Kindle, just so you can be introduced to Bertie Wooster (kept in line by his butler Jeeves) and Bertie’s friends, such as the incomparable Gussie Fink-Nottle!

The course of true love never did run smooth and obviously the British do not know the cautionary tale of “speak for yourself John Alden.” Here you will read a similar tale about Gussie, who is a newt loving man-about-town. As a bonus, you will learn why you should never combine public speaking with over consumption!

Of the many hysterical Jeeves & Wooster books by P.G. Wodehouse, Right Ho, Jeeves is considered the most hilarious and falling down funny . . . by me . . . and others. Find out for yourself. What better gift to yourself than a good read and a good laugh? And it is free!

Here is a bit of Jeeves and Wooster patter from this novel, but it could have come from any of them. It is a typical exchange about Bertie’s wardrobe that fans of the series have come to expect. Wait for it . . .

“Yes, Jeeves?” I said. “Something on your mind, Jeeves?”

“I fear that you inadvertently left Cannes in the possession of a coat belonging to some other gentleman, sir.”

I switched on the steely a bit more.

“No, Jeeves,” I said, in a level tone, “the object under advisement is mine. I bought it out there.”

“You wore it, sir?”

“Every night.”

“But surely you are not proposing to wear it in England, sir?”
