When Monty Bodkin returns home to England after a year in America, his absence has strengthened his resolve to claim the hand in marriage of his intended, the hockey-playing Gertrude Butterwick. However, his association with an overweight Hollywood movie mogul, his redoubtable wife, and even more formidable step-daughter sets the scene for complications. Add to this potpourri the piquant seasonings of a third-rate private detective, a devious pair of confidence tricksters, and a string of pearls, and the course of true love certainly won't run smoothly for Monty.… (mais)

Another novel of clever writing and classic humour composed like you'd expect from P.G. Wodehouse.

Not one of his best books, but a dashed good read nonetheless. ( )

Montrose (Monty) Bodkin has a lot in common with Bertie Wooster: he gets up to as many antics and falls in love with the same ease, but he is less of a comic caricature. Although he inherited wealth, he is not from an aristocratic family. He has been told by his fiancee's father that he must earn his living for one year to get permission to marry. Monty gets a job with Ivor LLewellyn, a Hollywood tycoon while he and his ambitious wife, Grayce, seek out the rich and titled in England. At the centre of the story is a valuable string of pearls, surrounded by the Llewellen's recently acquired friends and a private detective they hired, who are all odious villains. This was a lot of fun and I liked it even more than Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster stories, although I believe he could have ended it successfully a hundred pages earlier. ( )

What a joy to revel in Wodehouse's world! Great laughs on every page, phrases you want to remember forever. Twists and turns and always the world turns out just right! Wonderful escape! ( )

I very much enjoyed this late Wodehouse novel, enhanced by Jonathan Cecil's brilliant narration. I was a tiny bit worried that this book, first published in 1972 when Wodehouse was 90, would be lacking some of the sparkle and wit I love so much in the Bertie & Jeeves books. However, while certain elements were familiar, the characters and dialogue were top-notch (and even at his best there was some repetition: Bertie would get embroiled with situation, Jeeves would come up with a scheme which would put Bertie in a ridiculous position but would free him from his entanglement).

Personally I thought that this was better than Piccadilly Jim (which is on the Guardian's list), especially if you want to read a stand-alone. ( )

There was an ornamental lake on the Superba-Llewellyn lot, and it was his opinion that his production adviser ought to be at the bottom of it with a stout brick attached to his neck. Though not as a rule a lavish man, he would gladly have supplied brick and string free of charge.
