This is a Dover Edition paperback, which typically means that the contents are out of copyright. You can get a lot of these stories for free on Kindle, but there were still several I had never read.

This collection of stories includes 8 Bertie Wooster/Jeeves stories, plus 7 Reggie Pepper stories. The seven Reggie Pepper stories constitute the entire series for Reggie Pepper.

I read somewhere that Reggie Pepper and his sometime valet Voules were the prototypes for Bertie and Jeeves, but I don't think this is true. Voules is in only one of these stories, and he is not the admirable and clever character that Jeeves is. Reggie Pepper is kind of a cross between Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, in that he schemes like Jeeves and occasionally blunders along like Bertie. Like Bertie, he is comfortably well-off and a member of the British leisure class.

Some of the elements in Reggie Pepper do re-appear in the Jeeves stories. Among these are the character of Florence Craye, who appears with the same name (and with a brother Edwin) in both series.

The Jeeves stories in this book are:
Extricating Young Gussie
Leave It to Jeeves
The Aunt and the Sluggard
Jeeves Takes Charge
Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest
Jeeves and the Hard-boiled Egg
Jeeves and the Chump Cyril
Jeeves in the Springtime

The Reggie Pepper stories are:
Absent Treatment
Lines and Business
Disentangling Old Duggie
Brother Alfred
Rallying Round Clarence
Concealed Art
The Test Case

Enjoy!

It took me a couple of tries to get into this book - maybe the historical period isn't of particular interest to me. I kept after it and I really did enjoy the stories.

This isn't a novel - it's a collection of stories previously published in periodicals. Don't expect a 'flow' - each story stands alone, as was the intent of the writer in writing for periodicals. The good thing about it is that you can read them story by story and put the book down not wondering what in the world happens next. The stories are entertaining and fun and short enough to read in one of those 'boredom windows' we all have - at the doctor's office, on the bus, or whenever we have to sit and wait for something.

This book has 7 or 8 of the earliest Jeeves stories, as the title says. The remaining stories feature Reggie Pepper, who was a prototype Bertie Wooster. Wodehouse was still honing his style with these Reggie Pepper tales. I recommend readiing these first and finishing with the Jevves stories. Wodehouse reworked a couple of the Pepper stories as later Jeeves & Wooster entries, so some of these will be familiar to fans of his later books or the great PBS series.

Absolutely the best of wry British humor. Nothing like it exists any more. Easy and fun to read for people who need a little lift after a hard day's work. Chapters are short, interesting. The social dynamics between Jeeves and Wooster are amusing; and cause the reader to wonder just exactly who is the master and who the servant.

The first half of this book contains the first Jeeves tales, as they appeared in periodicals. If you've read 'Carry on Jeeves,' there's a lot of overlap here, although the style was polished up a bit later. The second half features Reggie Pepper, Bertie's prototype. His stories are entertaining in their own right, although they can't hold a candle to later Wodehouse. Still, it's interesting to see the evolution.

Its a good thing Jeeves is there to look after Wooster!! Good humor I'd say a must read if you need cheering up.
Sarin
If you like Wodehouse you will enjoy this book. It is interesting to remember that while the books are amusing, they were in part written to mock the entrenched upper class of the era. But still a good read on an endless airplane flight.
Once again Jeeves guides poor Bertie Wooster through the shoals of social and personal potential shipwreck How can he be so knowledgeable and wise? And so tongue-in-cheek clever? Pure fun.
