The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse

This month, a little palate cleanser after the sorrows and horrors of World War II on the eastern front. P.G. Wodehouse was a prolific British humorist, writing at least one novel or collection of short stories nearly every year between 1902 and 1974. The Code of the Woosters is the third novel in Wodehouse’s series about Bertram Wilberforce "Bertie" Wooster, a somewhat foppish and silly British aristocrat, and his dependable and masterful (some might say too masterful) valet, Jeeves.

While it is unlikely that Wodehouse’s work will move your soul or inspire revelatory discussion, it is almost guaranteed to be great fun. Join us for a light-hearted evening of conversation about the adventures of Bertie and Jeeves.

Perhaps after finishing the novel, you’ll consider a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo to visit the newts.

    I enjoyed the book especially because I like an occasional book that's amusing. I'd imagine myself reading another Wodehouse on the beach and there are several free Kindle editions.

    Oh man, i was all ready for this meeting, just got downtown, and realized it isn't at the usual spot! Sorry guys, guess I'll have to forego this one. Have fun!

      I'm so sorry you didn't make it. I hope the trip downtown wasn't too far out of your way.

      It was my fault for not having read the addy beforehand, but I did get a good laugh out of the book anyway :) I'll see you all at the June meeting!

    What a delightful discussion for a book that seemed so unlikely to prompt discussion. Thank you everyone!.

    I really enjoyed our meeting this evening. We spent two hours discussing a book that many of us described as "fluff." Good discussion and good points raised. Looking forward to seeing everyone again at our future meetings!

    Will be out of town, so I can't make it. I enjoyed the Midsummer's-Dream feel to the book. Have fun discussing!

    I'm not fighting traffic leaving Philly to be in the burbs for 7PM. If you start an hour later I would come.

    You were all very kind not to point out the two typos in the post for this meeting. I'm going to blame the time change for my fuzzy brain. Most days I do know the difference between a pallet and a palate.
