A satisfactory read - but...

Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves is consistently funny, and actually moves along the plots of the wealth of recurring characters Wodehouse had compiled by this point. However, it feels a little bit like we're on autopilot. Nothing is quite as outrageous as in the earlier novels, and often chapters will end with situations being salvaged rather than worsened! That's not to say that Wodehouse is straying from the formula: instead he's using the regular 'Jeeves' formula but seems to have removed some of the spicier ingredients.

I wouldn't recommend this book to newcomers. There are far too many recurring characters for a new reader, and the situational comedy doesn't reach anything near the heights of The Code of the Woosters, for example. (A book that is referred to constantly here, making the comparison all the more bitter.)

The novel was published in 1963, by which time Wodehouse was in his 80s(!) and had been writing Jeeves and Wooster stories for 50 years(!!). For loyal fans, there are still charms to soothe the savage breast. Regardless of my qualms, the narrative voice remains as sublime as it has ever been. A diverting read for the helpless Wodehouse acolyte. ( )

Wow—a late spurt of excellence in the Jeeves œuvre. A must read. ( )

Told from Wooster's perspective, he only finds himself in constant trouble when merely attempting to help Stinker Pinker. A humorous story that explores resilience, with a final rescue from Jeeves. ( )

Reading a Wodehouse, you expect the formulaic. Nevertheless, compared to others in the series, this comes across as rather average. Same wildgoose chase (but less interesting) and always Jeeves to the rescue. ( )

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.
Citações

The lissomeness with which he moved hither and thither was most impressive, as was his homicidal ardor when doing what I believe is called tackling. Like the Canadian Mounted Police, he always got his man, and when he did so the air was vibrant with the excited cries of morticians in the audience making bids for the body. (Chap. 3)
It died on his lips as he saw me, and he stood staring at me aghast. He reminded me of one of those fellows who spend the night in haunted houses and are found next morning dead to the last drop with a look of awful horror on their faces. (Chap. 6)
"There is no need to dwell on the Alpine hat, Jeeves."

"No, sir."

"If you really want to know, several fellows at the Drones asked me where I had got it."

"No doubt with a view to avoiding your hatter, sir." (Chap.7)
Aberdeen terriers, possible owing to their heavy eyebrows, always seem to look at you as if they were in the pulpit of the church of some particularly strict Scottish sect and you were a parishoner of dubious reputation sitting in the front row of the stalls. (Chap.8)
"It's always annoying when you're up against it and people tell you what a jolly time you could be having if you weren't and how topping everything would be if you were somewhere where you aren't." (Chap.20)
