The Code of the Woosters : (Jeeves & Wooster) Paperback
Part of the Jeeves & Wooster series
A Jeeves and Wooster novel When Bertie Wooster goes to Totleigh Towers to pour oil on the troubled waters of a lovers' breach between Madeline Bassett and Gussie Fink-Nottle, he isn't expecting to see Aunt Dahlia there - nor to be instructed by her to steal some silver.
But purloining the antique cow creamer from under the baleful nose of Sir Watkyn Bassett is the least of Bertie's tasks.
He has to restore true love to both Madeline and Gussie and to the Revd 'Stinker' Pinker and Stiffy Byng - and confound the insane ambitions of would-be Dictator Roderick Spode and his Black Shorts.
It's a situation that only Jeeves can unravel. Writing at the very height of his powers, in The Code of the Woosters, P.G.
Wodehouse delivers what might be the most delightfully funny book ever committed to paper.

Review by LARA335
I needed jollying up, and this was just the ticket, in the company of buoyant Bertie Wooster. He has a wonderful, original turn of phrase, gets into ridiculous scrapes, and you know Jeeves will come to the aid of the party. I don't ever remember watching Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry as these characters, but absolutely visualised them as I read. Subsequently googled them, and think Laurie is absolutely spot on (and a very youthful Fry, if he could be aged a few years).If you enjoy inventive similes, this will raise your spirits.
