Pressestimmen

Christopher Buckley author of Little Green Men It is impossible to be unhappy while reading the adventures of Jeeves and Wooster. And I've tried.

Kurt Andersen author of Turn of the Century Wodehouse can be extremely funny, of course, and Bertie and Jeeves are echt-Englishmen, but the surprising and surpassing pleasure of these books is their cheerful humanity. Reading Wodehouse always makes me feel good.

David Foster Wallace author of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men Timelessly funny and mean.

Evelyn Waugh Mr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Einleitungssatz
I MARMALADED a slice of toast with something of a flourish, and I don't suppose I have ever come much closer to saying "Tra-la-la" as I did the lathering, for I was feeling in mid-season form this morning. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 27. Februar 2007
Format: Taschenbuch
Dante had his Inferno. Odysseus had to get past Scylla and Charybdis. And Bertie Wooster has to darken the dangerous halls of Totleigh Towers again to avoid the unwelcome bands of matrimony with Miss Madeline Bassett.

Madeline's engagement to that world-class newt lover, Gussie Fink-Nottle, is on the rocks when Madeline insists that the meat-loving Gussie become a vegetarian. That's dangerous because Madeline has always made it clear that she will have no other man than Bertie as her husband if Gussie isn't available. So Bertie volunteers to enter that place where all others abandon hope in order to try to repair the engagement. But he's soon in trouble because Emerald Stoker, daughter of the American millionaire, has taken a temporary job as the cook at Totleigh Towers and is tempting Gussie with steak and kidney pie and ham sandwiches. Soon love is following the growls of Gussie's stomach, and Gussie insults the sunset and Madeline's favorite fictional character.

At the same time, Stiffi Byng's engagement to Stinker Pinker is on the rocks as well because Pop Bassett won't come through with the vicar's job that Stinker needs to be able to afford to marry. A rocky day at the school treat makes progress even more problematical.

Jeeves is the source of the all the solutions as he often is, but relations are strained even there by Bertie's new hat which Jeeves feels is unsuitable.

Stiffi also takes to absconding with Pop Bassett's prize gee-gaw, which Bertie's Uncle Tom covets, and matters develop to make Bertie look like a thief again. Can Bertie escape the goal?

In the best of the Jeeves stories, the plot unfolds in a fairly straightforward fashion that holds Bertie at ransom to fate. Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves has such a plot.

01 / 06 The Menace Of Totleigh Towers: Bertie's obliged to sort out an amorous mix-up between his friends.
02 / 06 Upstairs, Downstairs And Bumps In The Night: Bertie tries to play peacemaker when he arrives at Totleigh Towers. PG Wodehouse romp.
03 / 06 Bartholomew, Blackmail And Barefaced Lies: Bertie Wooster is landed in a pickle over an expensive statue.
04 / 06 Spode Is Unsuccessful: Gussie upsets his fiancee when he looks elsewhere on the menu.
05 / 06 Black Eyes And Bloody Noses: Gussie's walloped and Aunt Dahlia sends Bertie on a spending spree.
06 / 06 Game, Set And Match To Jeeves: Bertie's in a mess, can his valet save his bacon?

Eigentlich hatte sich Bertie Wooster nach der Affäre mit dem silver cow creamer (The Code of the Woosters) geschworen nie, nie wieder nach Totleigh Towers zurückzukehren. Nun jedoch haben sich Berties Freund Gussie Fink-Nottle und seine Verlobte Madeline Bassett verkracht, weil sie Gussie zum Zwangsvegetarier gemacht hat, was seine Laune nachhaltig verschlechtert hat. Er kann Madeline nicht mehr ertragen. Wenn sich die beiden aber nicht versöhnen, wird Madeline sich wieder an Bertie ranschmeißen und ihn heiraten wollen, was Bertie um jeden Preis verhindern will, die beiden müssen sich aussöhnen, um jeden Preis. Miss Stiffy Byng ist mit ihren Verlobten Reverend Stinker Pinker auch noch keinen Schritt weiter auf dem Weg zu einem eigenen Pfarrhaus und will, dass Bertie ihrem Onkel eine afrikanische Statuette klaut, von der sie der Meinung ist, er hätte den Verkäufer um den wahren Preis betrogen.

Bertie Wooster's bachelorhood is under threat and this forces an unwelcome return to Totliegh Towers. A great Wodehouse cocktail follows.. But this one might not reach up to the high standards set by Wodehouse himself.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the best Jeeves/Bertie novels. This american edition is printed on high quality paper, so if you are looking for a good but not expensive edition of this title, this may be the one. They also published "The Most of P.G. Wodehouse", "Jeeves and Tie That Binds"(aka "Much Obliged, Jeeves")"Bertie Wooster Sees It Through" (aka "Jeeves And The Feudal Spirit") and "How right you are, Jeeves"(aka"Jeeves in the Offing")

Classic Wodehouse giving classic Wooster 20. Januar 2004
Von Paul Donovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves" is an example of Wodehouse at his best - to paraphrase Evelyn Waugh, cramming three original similes onto every page. The book continues the saga of the Wooster / Bassett / Fink-Nottle "love triangle", and Wodehouse as ever handles the problem of filling in new readers with aplomb (though it is undoubtedly better to have read the preceding volumes - after all, why wouldn't you want to read the preceding volumes?). Bertie is once again at Totleigh Towers where "only man is vile", desperately trying to avoid imprisonment, dismemberment at the hands of Spode (now under the alias of Lord Sidcup) while failing spectacularly to act as raisonneur to the Madeleine / Gussie relationship -which now appears to be floundering on the insurmountable obstacle of vegetarianism. Bertie gets some good one-liners, and the dialogue is excellent as always. Though writen post-war, after what many consider the Wodehouse golden-age of the 1930s, this remains an example of Wodehouse at his best.

Terrifying Trials at Totleigh Towers! 23. Januar 2005
Von Donald Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Dante had his Inferno. Odysseus had to get past Scylla and Charybdis. And Bertie Wooster has to darken the dangerous halls of Totleigh Towers again to avoid the unwelcome bands of matrimony with Miss Madeline Bassett.

Madeline's engagement to that world-class newt lover, Gussie Fink-Nottle, is on the rocks when Madeline insists that the meat-loving Gussie become a vegetarian. That's dangerous because Madeline has always made it clear that she will have no other man than Bertie as her husband if Gussie isn't available. So Bertie volunteers to enter that place where all others abandon hope in order to try to repair the engagement. But he's soon in trouble because Emerald Stoker, daughter of the American millionaire, has taken a temporary job as the cook at Totleigh Towers and is tempting Gussie with steak and kidney pie and ham sandwiches. Soon love is following the growls of Gussie's stomach, and Gussie insults the sunset and Madeline's favorite fictional character.

At the same time, Stiffi Byng's engagement to Stinker Pinker is on the rocks as well because Pop Bassett won't come through with the vicar's job that Stinker needs to be able to afford to marry. A rocky day at the school treat makes progress even more problematical.

Stiffi also takes to absconding with Pop Bassett's prize gee-gaw, which Bertie's Uncle Tom covets, and matters develop to make Bertie look like a thief again. Can Bertie escape the goal?

In the best of the Jeeves stories, the plot unfolds in a fairly straightforward fashion that holds Bertie at ransom to fate. Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves has such a plot. I highly recommend this book to you.

This book should also remind you to read the Jeeves books in order of their publication. Many of the best are sequels to the finest of the early stories. Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves is one of those sequels. Enjoy!

Bertie Wooster a.k.a. Alpine Joe is in the soup again 24. Januar 2001
Von Robert P. Grosso Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Bertie Wooster, equipped with alpine hat, is in trouble again. He must again travel to the dreaded Totleigh Towers to patch up the engagement between Gussie Fink-Nottle and Madeline Basset, lest he be forced to fill the vacancy. Great fun! Contains the same wonderful cast of characters we've come to know and laugh at as in "The Code of the Woosters," the ever-dangerous Roderick Spode, the magistrate Sir Watkyn Basset, the oozing Madeline Basset, the capricious Stiffy, her would-be husband, "Stinker" Pinker, and her carniverous dog, Bartholomew. Jeeves' indomitable wisdom and wit will be tested to the utmost.

WODEHOUSE + CECIL = A SPLENDID READING 31. Oktober 2005
Von Gail Cooke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just as we believe some actors were born to play a certain role or a singer was born to sing a specific song, I'm convinced Jonathan Cecil was born to read P. G. Wodehouse. The British accented Cecil voice delightfully inhabits the personas of Jeeves, Bertie Wooster and sundry other characters with charm, humor, and distinction.

My first introduction to the talents of Cecil was with his stunning reading of "Jeeves and the Mating Season." Since that time no other voice will do for the born to the purple Bertie and his long suffering butler.

P.G. Wodehouse is quite another story. Obviously, one of the greatest humorists to ever take up pen his tongue-in-cheek take on the British upper classes is pure laugh provoking perfection. With "Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves" we find Bertie returning to Totleigh Towers, a place he had hoped never to see again as it is the domain of Sir Watkyn Bassett, who lined his pockets with fines he collected. Bassett's daughter, Madeline is always on the prowl and Bertie wants no part of her.

Fortunately, Madeline has fallen for and captured another - Gussie, a friend of Bertie's. Now, Madeline is not only a huntress but she is also passionate about changing her quarry to suit her own tastes. In this case, the word "taste" may be taken literally as she wants to change the meat loving Gussie into a vegetarian, which is where most of the trouble begins. Bertie, as usual, finds himself embroiled in this sticky situation.

Alas, once again it's left up to Jeeves to come to Bertie's aid.

Wodehouse has been dubbed a "comic genius;" Cecil is his full partner in this splendid reading. Enjoy!

A Tonic for the 21st Century 10. November 2007
Von B00ks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What could the Nobel Prize for literature signify if PG Wodehouse not only didn't win one, but never made the short-list? Good grief. What other writer living or dead, in Nobel's own words, "help[s] dreamers, as they find it hard to get on in life."

Take STIFF UPPER LIP, JEEVES, for example. If you want to read a book that'll grab you by your lapels and hoist you out this mundane, dynamite-scarred world, try this one.

Crisp dialogue, intricate plotting, witty wordplay, amusing situations, and distinct characters make this book satisfying to read repeatedly. In fact, it is astonishing that STIFF UPPER LIP, JEEVES and many other Wodehouse creations seem just as fresh the second, third, and even seventh time around.

I would liken reading this book to drinking one of Jeeves's famous pick-me-ups "and their effect on a fellow who is hanging to life by a thread on the morning after." Wodehouse writes: "For perhaps the split part of a second nothing happens. It is as though all Nature waited breathless. Then, suddenly, it is as if the Last Trump had sounded and Judgment Day set in..."

If heaven's half as delightful as reading PG Wodehouse, (should I get there) I'll be in paradise.
