    Bertie, ( Mr.Bertram Wooster, if you please) the victim, is enjoying quiet days in his London flat, a man about town but not for long though, trouble appears above the not far horizons, always does he can smell it, a strong odor too. Informed by his brilliant butler Jeeves, ( a quality our friend lacks, sadly) the magnificent that Zenobia the delightful, a charming, sweet girl, just twenty of age, with a horrible nickname n you imagine d I'm not joking . calledNobby Hopwood , his uncle Percy's w [...]

    Jeeves in the Morning, aka Joy in the Morning is the stuff to give the troops! It's one of my all-time favorites in the Jeeves/Wooster line, as penned by the prolific and long-lived P.G. Wodehouse.It includes a heap load more tales of woe for Bertie Wooster to get into and his butler Jeeves to get him out of. Also appearing is one of the best non-appearing characters, J. Chichester Clam. The poor fellow is saddled with a ridiculous name and is put through his paces in this story without even get [...]

    The 2012 re-read:Bertie Wooster, with Jeeves in tow, is dragooned into visiting Steeple Bumpleigh, home of Aunt Agatha and her husband, Lord Worplesdon. Bertie soon walks into a web of broken engagements, arson, and delightfully horrible misunderstandings, including an engagement to Florence Craye. Can Jeeves extricate Wooster from what will be known as The Steeple Bumpleigh Horror?Of course he can. See how Jeeves' head bulges out in the back? That's where his extra brain power comes from.This b [...]

    The other day, as I was walking along the beach in the frightfully early morning - when both man and beast ought quite to be tucking the old blankets under the pointy end of the old bean - there was a rather fit young lady putting quite some stride into her step not a few yards ahead of me.Unfortunately, I had just gotten up to the part of the story at which Bertie is discoursing with Boko concerning the nature of women and to what extent one can rely on what they say when they are cross with on [...]

    I think this is considered to be the most "complete" book written by Wodehouse. He wrote it while under detention by Germans during WW 2, and had plenty of time to fine-tune it.That it is a comic gem is no question. Here, Bertie is on run from the beautiful,bossy and intellectual Florence Craye, who wants to "mould" him: and her fiance Stilton Cheesewright, who wants to "mould" Bertie in quite another fashion for stealing his sweetheart. Add to this the fact that he is forced to stay in the hous [...]

    Before I tell you how great these books are, I have a complaint (no not a Monty Python skit).Several of the Jeeves and Wooster canon were apparently published under "alternate" titles here in the good ol' US of A. Which, is frustrating me as I seek out more volumes to whet the appetite for comic humor and make the old bean happy. Case in point: this little gem was originally titled (and read my m'self) as, "Joy in the Morning".Now, I can fathom why the American publisher might substitute "Jeeves [...]

    "An unfortunate concatenation of circumstances" puts Bertie Wooster once again "in the soup" re marriage proposals (with Lady Florence Craye this time) and he requires the sharp mind of the faithfull Jeeves to extricate self and to aid a couple of young eggs into the bargain ( the accident prone Boko Fiddleworth and the perky Zenobia Nobby Hopgood) . Apparently, the bean functions better on a diet of fish (it's the phosphorus, you know) and the idyllic location of Steeple Bumbleigh provides good [...]

    The first question is whether this is Great Literature. We already know it's pleasant to read, and very funny. But here it is showing up as one of the Guardian's Top 100 Novels, like, ever, and can it really survive being taken that seriously?The second question is Wodehouse, whose reputation has been tarnished by a series of radio broadcasts he made from Berlin during WWII after spending nearly a year as a prisoner of war, having been interned in France while he was working on this very novel.

    This was my first Wodehouse (apparently pronounced “Woodhouse”). Since the guy published over ninety books during his lifetime, I just randomly picked one off of my library’s shelves. I must say that I picked pretty well. Joy in the Morning is part of the Wooster and Jeeves saga. Jeeves, Wooster’s butler, has apparently become the standard for stereotypical butlers. It was nice to meet the original.Bertie Wooster is manipulated into visiting Steeple Bumpleigh to help out his Uncle Percy, [...]

    Yesterday morning, I was reading this while standing on the subway platform full of sleepy workers waiting for the train. A random passerby with his ipod plugged in walked by and shouted "Jeeves! Awesome!"


    F.R.

    “Most disturbing, sir,” he said.“Most,” I responded.I refrained from wounding him with any word of censure and rebuke, but I could not but feel, as I have so frequently felt before, that a spot of leaping about and eyeball rolling would have been more in keeping with the gravity of the situation. If Jeeves has a fault, as I think I have already mentioned, is that he is too prone to merely tut at times when you would prefer to see his knotted and combined locks do a bit of parting.’The [...]

    This is another of Wodehouses' wonderous tales that can be read with ease. When you are feeling down Jeeves and Wooster are the perfect pick me up. I preferred 'Code of the Woosters'. All of the books can be summarised like so, Bertie Wooster is a man of great means but few grey cells. He is well meaning and a good sport but gets himself into all sorts of social entanglements that his shrewd man servant Jeeves ends up rescuing him from.The title is from Psalms, "Weeping may endure for a night, b [...]

    To summarize the book, "It's a confounding concatenation of comic circumstances."The unassailable melodic ring of that entire line is rendered ineffective by the fact that someone decided to pronounce circumstances as "sircum" and not "kircum". To summarize my feeling after realizing that, I would gently employ the Puneri word "Shyeah".Joy in the Morning is one of the best horses from the PGW Turf Club. I strongly suspect that it would win or come second only to the ablest of contenders Right Ho [...]

    Edwin was my favorite character in the book. Wodehouse at his best again


    Cori

    If you’ve never read PG Wodehouse, please do yourself a favor and go out and get one of his books. This one in particular would be an excellent place to start. It involves some of my favorite characters in the Jeeves and Wooster universe — Boko Fittleworth, Nobby Hopwood, Edwin the Boy Scout, Stilton Cheesewright . . . not to mention Jeeves and Wooster themselves. Wodehouse is a master of humor, plot, and character (seriously, those names! Brilliant! And I didn’t even mention J Chichister [...]

    My first Wodehouse. I’m truly sorry I didn’t pick up this author earlier. This book was just a delight to listen to; a funny and entertaining comedy of manners. I’ll certainly read the rest of these and recommend them to anyone who enjoys solid British humor.Wodehouse’s chronicling of the daily adventures of Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves in pre-war, high society England is sharp, witty and timeless. Bertie’s a well-intentioned but foppish member of the Idle Rich who is always in [...]

    Ah, the many joys of Wodehouse! One can delight at 'Blandings' or enjoy the company of Psmith, but Bertie and Jeeves offer pleasure often beyond reckoning. The voice anchors the entire thing -- Bertie's mix of grandiloquence and idiocy gussy up every sentence and beautify ever short story -- but over the course of an entire novel, the plot mechanics, the heartless crush of the inevitable comedy and humiliation, these are the things that make him a master. Whom in the subsequent eighty years of B [...]

    Oh, the excellently perilous Steeple Bumpleigh & its merry cast of dreadful characteres. Young Nobby! The treacherous Florence! Boko Fittleworth! Stilton, going around "Ho!"ing all over the place! Dear Worplesdon! Edwin the Boy Scout! And last but not least, the illustrious J. Chichester Clam, drinking quarts of coffee & getting nasty shocks from the New Deal. "I mentioned that there was an expression on the tip of my toungue which seemed to me to sum up the nub of the recent proceedings [...]


    Wendy

    I can't describe to you the soul-warming contentment I'm feeling right now, so suffice to say that I enjoyed it very, very much, as with all of the Jeeves books I've read thus far. I recommend these a lot (which probably goes without saying, but oh, well).

    Every time I read Wodehouse I wonder how psychiatrists/psychologists have not yet understood the panacea contained in his works. Particularly Jeeves and Wooster stories. Read it in the morning if you are feeling low and, yes, joy cometh in the morning! How Wodehouse is able to make you laugh at every single phrase (and I mean it literally) is a mystery no one will ever unveil. It is unimportant, anyway. What matters is that the powerful doses of giggles and loud laughs his works afford will cure [...]

    Imagine a scenario in which ridiculous characters bumble through a series of hilarious coincidences and an equal number of snafus, all in the name of love, marriage and a big business deal. That’s the main idea in Joy in the Morning, a great introduction to P.G. Wodehouse’s famous characters, a twenty-something Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves.In this story, Bertie and Jeeves leave London and head for the quiet hamlet of Steeple Bumpleigh. To anyone wishing to escape a hectic metropo [...]

    Top shelf Wodehouse. Vintage: 1946. Ingredients: one part rich, good-natured imbecile (Bertie Wooster); one country estate; two pairs of young couples seemingly incapable of ever getting hitched; one bad-tempered uncle; one Boy Scout whose "acts of kindness" drive everyone crazy; a masquerade ball, hijinks galore, and misunderstandings by the minute; and one mastermind valet (Jeeves). Shake well and try not to choke on the unstoppable bubbles of humor. 'Joy in the Morning,' P.G. Wodehouse's eigh [...]

    My English friend got me started on Wodehouse (pronounced wood house) with this book. What an absolute treat. All of his books are just delightful, a pleasure to read, and this is one of the best. They're so pleasantly, bubbly-y enjoyable. Read them when you want to feel sunny and cheerful.There's a line in this book that sticks with me, something to the effect of, "Steeple Bumpleigh is the sort of place where you can't lob a brick without beaning an apple-cheeked villager in the head." Ha! I ju [...]


    Michael

    Nobody is better at pure farce than Wodehouse. “Joy in the Morning” is one of the entries in the Wooster/Jeeves series and is the source of the famous “Steeple-Bumpleigh Horror” to which Bertie frequently alludes in other books. Wodehouse recycled the same plot through nearly 90 books, but somehow it never grows old or stale. His gift with language and character keeps the stories fresh no matter how many times you read them. In "Joy in the Morning" there are sundered hearts that must be [...]

    In these rough and tumble days don't you sometimes just want to sit down and have a healthy helping of P.G. Woodhouse? That was me this weekend and I turned to Jeeves in the Morning for my fix. Loved it, loved it, loved it. I often realize that I'm about as obtuse as Bertie Wooster and I know that I need a Jeeves. Then, I also realize, that I have many people around me who, each in a small way, smooth my path as efficiently as Jeeves does for Bertie and those around him. Thanks to all of you who [...]

    Bertie is forced to go to the Steeple Bumpleigh the lair of his Uncle Percy and Aunt Agatha, the one who chews broken bottles and kills rats with her teeth. The rest is known as The Steeple Bumpleigh Horror[]I remained rooted to the spot, staring dazedly into the darkness. Winged creatures of the night came bumping into the old face and bumping off again, while others used the back sketches of my neck as a skating rink, but I did not even raise a hand to interfere with their revels. This awful t [...]

    "It has been well said of Bertram Wooster by those who enjoy his close acquaintance that if there is one quality more than another that distinguishes him, it is his ability to keep the lip stiff and upper and make the best of things. Though crushed to earth, as the expression is, he rises again – not absolutely in mid-season form, perhaps but perkier than you would expect and with an eye alert for silver linings." (45)While undergoing immense amounts of stress re PhD application deadlines over [...]

    Just what I needed. Good laughs, and a lot of them. Shall I count the ways the Jeeves/Bertie relationship is brilliant? Not enough room. Not good with numbers. But I'll say this - Jeeves always having the perfect quote to fit the occasion, and Bertie's subsequent massacring of those quotes never fails to get me chuckling. And I love that the butler, the hired man, is the one that everyone goes to for help to get out of their messes. One wonders what Jeeves gets out of the relationship - and yet, [...]

    I read a Wooster "adventure" every summer and this was the choice of twenty-thirteen. Typically I prefer the conciseness of Wodehouse's short stories, but JOY IN THE MORNING is a worthy member of his greatest hits. It's no secret, of course, that Wodehouse was a recycler and that's certainly the case here (his plots are made of the same tried and true elements) but his characters are so cleverly written and his language so hilariously rich that Wooster, Jeeves, and co. Could simply be riding a t [...]
