The Code of the Woosters, P.G Wodehouse
This was an extremely funny book by a British author. It uses many British terms such as what ho, and other things. It was rather silly, as the whole plot revolves around an antique cow creamer, but it was a clever book, full of wit, and funny, though it was rather sexist. There are only a few female characters in it, and they are portrayed as silly and petty. Still, I enjoyed reading it. It tells of the likable bumbling gentleman Bertie Wooster and his manservant and protector, Jeeves. In this book, they go to stay at a place called Totleigh Towers, and what ensues makes up much of the book. Though it was a bit slow at first, this book quickly picked up, and it became difficult to put it down. I really liked it, and I hope to read more of P.G. Wodehouse in the future. I would definitely recommend it. 4 1/2 stars.
