Wodehouse writes silly, frothy inconsequential books of no particular merit except for one detail: they’re utterly brilliant. Readers have to park their brains in a locker and wallow in the glorious writing. Wodehouse writes books where the first and second world wars didn’t happen. Neither did the Great Depression. He writes about an era of unsurpassed wealth and luxury and everything in the garden is lovely- all the time. His books are the antidote to tense thrillers, social dramas, sci-fi, and especially misery.
Why you should read this book: It’s superb and, for Kindle readers, it’s free.
Why you shouldn’t read this book: You’re too uptight to park your brains in a locker.
