Book 31 for 2012

Right Ho, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse. 261 pages
I'm not, as a rule, a big fan of the sort of comedy in which people are made to look foolish and embarrass themselves, but Wodehouse does it so gently and affectionately that I can't find it anything but charming and inoffensive.
He seems to be saying that, yes, these people are a bit silly, but then aren't we all, sometimes? And the people are indeed silly, but also engaging - I can't help feeling rather fond of them really.
So, nothing too deep or thought-provoking here, but a pleasant amusing read.
