Of course there can never be enough Jeeves for die-hard Wodehouse enthusiasts. But this selection brings old favorites to those fans in a sparkling package and will introduce new readers to the funniest writer in the English language. Right Ho, Jeeves; Joy in the Morning; and Very Good, Jeeves follow the adventures of two magnificently improbable characters. Bertie Wooster is an amiable young gentleman of excellent and ancient family--so he says--with plenty of money and no professional ambitions. Jeeves is his gentleman's gentleman, the soul of discretion, and a deep thinker, at least compared to Wooster. Jeeves brings tea and hangover cures in the morning, tempers his master's dubious taste in clothes, and invariably manages to extricate Wooster from fantastic predicaments of his own devising. Without Jeeves, Wooster would either be in jail or married to one or another terrifying young woman of his Aunt Agatha's choosing. Unlike life, a Wodehouse story always works out well in the end.… (mere)

While I give Wodehouse's work a 5 star rating, I had to mark down this collection due to the selections inside. The first half is perfection, a nice mix of short Jeeves stories. But the second half drags with the addition of the novels. It's certainly not a collection I'd give to a novice Plum reader. For the more advanced readers, it's fine. Still ... somehow, it seems a bit off. I'd rather have had a better mix of all shorts stories than the plodding feeling I got when the novels started up. I'd love to hear why they (who?) chose what to include in this omnibus. So - 5 stars for Wodehouse, 3 stars for the collection. ( )

Cracking good stuff. I snorted in my chair dozens of times, even at the stories I had read time and again. Wodehouse was one of the great masters of humor, and his every analogy and metaphor a sight to behold.

This is a newly combined volume from WW Norton, putting together Joy in the Morning, Very Good, Jeeves, and Right Ho, Jeeves together in one volume, giving you, as the title indicates, just enough Jeeves. Spanning the heart of Wodehouse's productivity, these three volumes gives us Jeeves at his finest, with one of the very best Jeeves novels in the lead-off spot, sandwiching the short story collection Very Good, Jeeves, and finishing with one of the most famous novels, Right Ho, Jeeves. Wodehouse's biographer Robert McCrum ably introduces these and other salient facts, and gives us a quick sketch of Wodehouse himself in order to launch the thing. Once his agreeable intro has been digested, the fun begins, and doesn't stop until page 712. ( )

I was so pleased to receive this Early Reviewers book, having been a big fan of Wodehouse for many years. It didn't disappoint. Even the second, third and fourth reads of the Jeeves and Wooster stories are funny, stress-relieving, and mind-tickling. Anyone having a literary friend with a sense of humor should recommend this book to them, as it's a good entry into the world of Wodehouse. ( )

Just Enough Jeeves is an omnibus edition that includes two novels, Right Ho, Jeeves and Joy in the Morning and a collection of short stories, Very Good, Jeeves.

P. G. Wodehouse was the king of make good literature out of humor and these three books are no exception. The plots may be minimal and repetitive, but the plots don't matter. It is Wodehouse's agility with words that make these books a delight. They are funny and excruciatingly clever.

Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by idiots. Driving around town, in the grocery store, at work, at play, in the restaurants, in banks, on television, at the movie theater, at school, sadly, sometimes, in your very own home. Is there nowhere one can be safe from this infestation of low intelligence?

Luckily for us all, there is one man who stand against this tide of cretinism. That man is Jeeves. And Jeeves is a man among men. If you are among those afflicted, rush out and purchase this book, Just Enough Jeeves. Yes, it is large. Yes, it is yellow. Yes, it is told backwards. Perhaps there is a reason for this. In any case, you certainly need this book. Take it home. Breathe it in. Admire the cover. Reassuring images of Jeeves will remind you that yes, there is sanity in the world. There he is - Jeeves, holding an umbrella, answering the telephone, reading the newspaper, protecting you from the dark forces of stupidity that threaten our very existence.

And that's only the cover. Just think what awaits you when you begin reading. No matter how idiotic your acquaintances are, no matter how asinine your friends or coworkers, they can't begin to approach the antics that are contained in the book itself. Not so much from Jeeves esteemed employer, I hasten to say. Bertram Wooster, while no daring intellectual, is positively brimming with gray matter compared to his bosom pals of the Drones club. But of others - well, when I say Jeeves is their only hope, I state only the plain and honest fact.

This book will give you hope for the future of humanity. You owe it to yourself to own a copy. Give one to similarly afflicted friends and share the joy. ( )
