The whirligigging plot almost spins out of control here, but don't worry: Jeeves takes care of that just fine. Great fun--another round, please!—Booklist
Wodehouse’s droll byplay between master and servant is emulated well… [Schott] succeeds at keeping his many plates spinning. This’ll be a hoot for Wodehouse fans.—Publishers Weekly
This homage to P.G. Wodehouse is so good that a blind reading (i.e. a genuine ‘Plum’ versus Schott’s pastiche) would be a tricky call. Everything is in its place...the sheer luxury, wealth and self-assurance of Bertie’s world is brilliantly evoked with all its enviable light-heartedness intact. A masterpiece in every sense.
Schott’s second foray into Wooster world (after Jeeves and the King of Clubs) is as dazzling as his first, with brilliant puns and laugh-out-loud prose. Everything one expects from Wodehouse is here: an outlandish plot, beloved characters, a Wooster aunt on the matrimonial warpath, gambling, nightclubs, and, inevitably, Jeeves to the rescue... [it's] a perfectly frothy concoction for invoking joy and laughter. For the uninitiated, Schott provides a glossary, placing characters and events into historical and literary context.
VERDICT It’s a fizzer, chaps. An absolute corker.
