Death at the Excelsior and Other Stories

PDF EBook by P.G. Wodehouse

EBook Description

4 to 4- PDF1/2 on this one. Death at the Excelsior and Other Stories PDF EBook Two stories with Jeeves, brilliant stories, and then Wodehouse introduces a character I've never read named Reggie Pepper, who's as bone-headed and hilarious as any Wodehouse created.

I read this as part of a brilliant Goodreads group called "Reading Wodehouse" for the January 2015 read. I was drawn to the collection because of the title story, which was one of Wodehouse's only murder mystery stories. It was good; download; it didn't have the characteristic antics and quips, but it featured a great character named Ms. Snyder who reminded me of Jeeves.

The story "Jeeves in the Springtime" made me snort. Wooster runs into an old friend who's wearing a hideous necktie and he's repulsed by it apparently:

"My God, man!" I gargled. "The cravat! The gent's neckwear! Why? For what reason?"

The last four stories are full of these quips and hijinks, not to mention some wonderful plot twists.

I would recommend this collection to anyone. (Btw, it's currently free from Kindle http://amzn.com/B004TPZYI0.) Like this book? Read online this: Bible stories to read and tell, Death in Midsummer and Other Stories.
