At his best, he's laugh out loud hilarious.

At his worst, he's a pompous, priggish, stilted twit.

The good far outweighs the bad, however.

I agree with bucksix - the dialogue in Wodehouses books is great! Also, his characters are memorable and really amusing: Psmith (The P is silent!), Galahad, Jeeves & Wooster, etc. This is english litterature at its best!0

P. G. Wodehouse died at age 90. He was still writing up to the end. His output contained 92 books, plus lyrics and dialogue for many Broadway musicals. Everything he wrote was fall on the floor laughing funny. Many of his books were in series. Eg The Blandings Castle series and probably his best known was the Jeeves and Wooster series. Bertie Wooster is a happy go lucky not too bright young man who is constantly being rescued by his valet Jeeves, usually marriage engagements which he stumbles into. Quite a few of these stories were shown on PBS (the complete series is available on DVD). His dialogue and characterizations make these books not only eminently readable but re-readable as well. Sample: Bertie: What did he say about me? Jeeves: He compared your intellect to that of a cuckoo....much to the bird's advantage. or Bertie while losing an arguement states: So as I went out the door I said tinkerty tonk! and I meant it to sting. Dialogue like this just doesn't happen every day! I can't recommend P.G.'s work strongly enough. My regret is that the ratings here only go to 5, since I feel that on a scale of 1 to 5, he deserves at least a 6.2
