Abstract: The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

The Inimitable Jeeves

P.G. Wodehouse has more than 100 books to his credit. The most loved characters of Wodehouse are of course Bertie Wooster and Jeeves.

Bertie belongs to the category of the ‘idle rich’and Jeeves is his highly sophisticated and proper butler. The novel ‘The Inimitable Jeeves’ explains in detail exactly why Jeeves is inimitable. Bertie is a character who is, well, a little dumb and who could be made to do anything with a little pursuing. Therefore he gets into tight spots too often. Another interesting character in the novel is Bingo, a close friend of Bertie (he reminds Bertie of this whenever he wants him to do something for him).

Bingo is a strong believer of love. The only problem is that he falls in love with every other girl who he gets acquainted with. As soon as the love bug infects him, he becomes her slave. But unfortunately every love affair meets with a tragedy. Now Bertie’s problem is that he is made to get involved in several of Bingo’s so called 'projects'. Usually it ends up in some sort of trouble or embarrassment for him which would naturally require the brains of Jeeves to find a solution.

Finally everything works out to be fine for everyone with the help of Jeeves of course (evidently a little bad name for Bertie could not be avoided). See why Jeeves is inimitable??
