Back to reading.

I just finished reading Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit by P. G. Wodehouse. Another gem from Wodehouse. Most of the people who have read a couple of Wodehouse stories tend to have an opinion about him that he is repetitive. Some say he uses too formal a language for it to be funny.

I always tell these critics that it is his style. I have seen some paragraphs and phrases being repeated sometimes but those are probably some of the funniest phrases. He also keeps referring to events in past and draws parallels. One starts to appreciate the whole style better only after reading a good number of his stories..

Off to reading another one.
