Our Intrepid Heroine

Life at Blandings (Omnibus)

Life at Blandings - P.G. Wodehouse P.G. Wodehouse is the antidote to life.

There are stories behind this, but since no one reads these things anyway, I'll just say that this collection made me laugh. I love Galahad of Blandings. I love the dotty old Earl of Emsworth. I even love the Hon. Freddie Threepwood, lover of pulp detective stories and constant thorn in his father's side.

A few too many of the gents are irritating, sulky, dim, or infuriating, but there are enough clever ladies and happy-go-lucky acts to cause sufficient trouble.

Just make sure to read these when you're in a mood for silliness, or they'll annoy rather than amuse.
