One of my most favorite things is flipping through the channels and finding Jeeves and Wooster on tv. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry may quite possibly be two of my most favorite actors and Jeeves and Wooster may be one of my most favorite television shows.
The other day a patron came in to the library and returned a bunch of the Jeeves and Wooster books and she recommended them and went on about how great they were (as many patrons do). I decided that since I like the show so much I should try the books. I checked out a few and right now I'm in the middle of the first collection of short stories and it's absolutely hilarious! And having watched the show first I can't help but only picture Hugh Laurie as Bernie Wooster saying these things as well as Stephen fry being Jeeves. They are absolutely delightful and I won't stop until I read them all.
p.s. I am also reading Persuasion, but it may have to go on vacation so I can get through all of my Jeeves and Wooster.
