Reviews of : Piccadilly Jim by P G Wodehouse PDF Book
Inside this Book – In order to win Ann’s affections, Jim has to pretend to be somebody else because five years ago he ridiculed Ann’s book of poetry in a newspaper article, and while she never met him before she considers him an enemy. However, in order to carry out Ann’s kidnapping scheme he has to pretend to be impersonating Jimmy Crocker, i.e., himself. If that does not make sense don’t worry about it, while the storyline is simple there are many plot elements that would make for an awfully convoluted synopsis. From a well-intentioned kidnapping to an espionage subplot, numerous imposters at a family mansion, and a larger than life female detective with crazy eyes. Wodehouse throws a lot of crazy notions into Piccadilly Jim. In lesser hands, this many plot elements would result in a hot mess but Wodehouse ingeniously weaves them all into a delightful, comic novel. The outrageously implausible plot defies logic, but I don’t read Wodehouse for logic or plausibility. What I do read him for is a good chuckle, an appreciation of clever language usage, and a generally upbeat feeling.
Inside this book –Piccadilly Jim PDF Book by P G Wodehouse – Bertie Wooster is fond of remarking to his butler, after the latter has extricated him from yet another hole, “Jeeves, you stand alone.” This could just as well be said about the author, P G Wodehouse. He stands alone. No other author approaches his perfection of the turn of the phrase, his talent for comic timing, his ability to string together remarkably complicated plots, and the individuality and personality he endows in each character. Remarkably, no two Wodehouse heroes are exactly the same (though he does have a weakness for repeating a certain archetype of the Wodehouse heroine.) So if one is to compare a book by Wodehouse, the only fair comparison is to other books by Wodehouse. Even by this comparison, “Piccadilly Jim” stands alone. Piccadilly Jim was the first Wodehouse I read. It has long been my favorite work by Wodehouse. I suspected perhaps part of it was a sentimentality towards the first book I read. So recently when I went back and re-read it, having sampled everything else by the master, I expected that I would find myself wiser, and my praise for the book tempered. I have been told by many other Wodehouse lovers that their favorite book by the master is “Sam the Sudden.” Pshaw, I say to them, and double pshaw. Piccadilly Jim is such a finely-crafted perfection of a novel that it transcends the category of “novels” and can only be compared with fine cheeses, and first-flush teas, and other such rare works of art.
