Thank You, Jeeves Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Thank You, Jeeves

P. G. Wodehouse is considered one of the greatest British humorists of the twentieth century. In “Thank You, Jeeves”, the humorist starts a series whose main goal is to ironize the decaying British aristocracy. Jeeves is the stereotype of a British butler, always loyal and far cleverer than his patron, Bertram. Bertram, a typical wealthy aristocrat who never worked in his life, finds himself in trouble in “Thank You, Jeeves”. After losing his loyal companion, Jeeves, and being evicted from his apartment, both due to his constant – and terrible – ukulele playing, Bertram accepts his friend's invitation to spend a few months in one of his luxury chalets. That's when trouble starts to knock at Bertram's door. His friend, Chubby, is about to marry Pauline Stoker, who had a difficult relationship with Bertram a few years ago. His troubled past isn't, however, his greatest problem: sir Roderick Glossop, Bertram's arch enemy if so to speak, will join Chubby, Pauline and Bertram in one of the chalets. Bertram's only advantage towards this chain of events is Jeeves, who was recently hired by Chubby. With the acid British humor, P. G. Wodehouse narrates all sorts of trouble that Bertram has to deal with – but never without the help of his loyal ex-butler, Jeeves.
