Jeeves-And-The-Wedding-Bells-by-Sebastian-Faulks

The Book: Jeeves And The Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks
The Gist: Jeeves and Wooster trade places, he becoming a valet, while Jeeves lords it over him
One-line review: This is like mock meat: it reads like a PG Wodehouse, but ultimately, “Where’s the REAL meat?”
Read it if: You’ve read all the PG Wodehouses there are
Caution: Even Faulks hopes this will send readers back to the originals.
The best line: “I had the strangest feeling that someone had gone to the fuse-box, found the one marked, ‘Wooster, B.’ and yanked it from the wall.”
