It is here that Jeeves makes his first appearance with these unremarkable words: "Mrs. Gregson to see you, sir." In the story "Extricating Young Gussie," we find Bertie Wooster's redoubtable Aunt Agatha "who had an eye like a man-eating fish and had got amoral suasion down to a fine point." The other stories are on: the romance between a lovely girl and a would-be playwright, the rivalry between the ugly policeman and Alf the Romeo milkman, and the plight of Henry in the title piece, The man with two left feet, who fell in love with a dance hostess.… (mais)

Not sure if this is the version I actually read or not, but whatever.

This one's hit or miss, but contains "Extricating Young Gussie," which introduces readers to Jeeves, so definitely worth a read. Wodehouse has an incredible way of maintaining a consistent tone and never reaching too hard for a joke while still making sure they land. Can't think of a more pleasant way to pass the time. ( )

Lots of laughs, a barrel of fun! My husband and I listened to this tag team style. Each of us rehearing part as the other caught up. We both loved the second time through as much or more than the first hearing. A great collection of stories. One with Bertie, but Jeeves has no real role in it. That was a surprise! ( )

A bit of a mixed bag, but absolutely worth the read for 'At Geisenheimer's' alone - a wonderful short story, so good that I felt compelled to read it out loud to the family. ( )

Although this is very early Wodehouse, I enjoyed this varied selection of short stories, including one which -I later learned - was the first time he wrote about Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves.

I'm pretty sure I've read some of these stories before, but that didn't matter at all. I particularly enjoyed a two-part tale narrated by a dog where the humour relies on the dog's trust in human nature, and some rather clever writing that lets the reader understand what's really going on. There are also more standard stories of relationships marred by misunderstandings, of mishaps and mistakes that, while naturally seeming a little old fashioned, are still relevant to the modern mind.

The title story - about a man who is unable to dance - is the last one in the book, and one which, like several, was rather predictable; not that this matters with Wodehouse humour, as the gently ironic style and upper-class language are what make the stories so enjoyable. While his brilliant use of language hasn't quite come to the fore in this selection, there were some passages that made me smile; for instance, in describing an area populated with artistes of all kind, from the perspective of a policemen, he writes:

'They assault and batter nothing but pianos, they steal nothing but ideas, they murder nobody except Chopin and Beethoven.'

Definitely recommended for any Wodehouse fans who enjoy short stories, but not ideal as an introduction to the great man. Free in ebook form from Project Gutenberg. ( )
