EBook Description

Early Wodehouse work that didn't quite meet the mark. Ukridge PDF EBook

Ukridge is a handful of short stories about a three- PDFnamed English toff trying to swindle folks out of their brass. I feel like Wodehouse was toying with his model story here, working to create the perfect mold. He's got the plot thing sussed, but his characters need work. A few of them become recurring characters in his Jeeves & download; Wooster work. It was fun to see early versions of Aunt Julia and Corky.

However, the fact of the matter is, the titular character, Ukridge, is a jerk. Maybe that's a bit harsh, but I just can't warm to him the way I did with Bertie Wooster. He's an ass and a nasty ass, while Bertie is a silly ass. Being a silly-ass is better than being as nasty ass.

When writing comedy, you usually want your reading public to like your main character or have them at least empathize with them on some level. Wodehouse probably figured that out soon after this was published. Like this book? Read online this: The Early Posthumous Work, I racconti di Pietroburgo.
