Wodehouse Summary The Small Bachelor It's America during Prohibition and shy young George Finch is setting out as an artist without the encumbrance of a shred of talent George falls in love with Molly whose imperious stepmother Mrs Waddington insists he's not the man to marry the stepdaughter of one of New York's mo Here is a warning followed by a noteDon t you read this tale on a train or a boat There will be no one around with whom you can shareEach bloke will fix you with their perplexed stareThat s what happens on a Wodehouse rideYou will guffaw at each turn and chuckle at each strideCharactersJ Hamilton Beamish is a debonair scholar who is a stickler for proper words used in communication and is a living image of style and grandeur He has booklets giving advice for everything ranging from poultry farming to poetry This character was so well defined that I felt he would point out a serious mistake in this sentence were he to read it He strongly believes that love is an emotion to be felt only after careful calculation and reasoningGeorge Finch is a great friend of Mr Beamish but is strikingly contrasting in personality He is mild docile and has recently fallen in love at first sight with Miss Molly who is a neighbor I class him among Nature s white mice as described by BeamishMullet A butler valet for both these gentlemen and a burglar in his past A man with an abhorrent vocabulary as described by BeamishSigsbee H Waddington He is the richest and meekest personality among all the characters But he literally stands out since he has this eccentric habit of forgetting names He seems to have been kicked by a mule on his head during childhood as described by BeamishMrs Waddington The second wife of Mr Waddington she is a woman of strong personality and dominates everyone in her home and outside as well She has a soul like the underside of a flat stone as described by BeamishStory Any work of PGWodehouse has a wafer thin story line made complex by little side plots bound by hilarious dialogs and odd character descriptions This one is no different How George Finch manages to gain entry into the family pursues his lady love in his own blundering ways and marries her forms the crux of the story After reading this book in hard copy I also listened to the audio version narrated by renowned actor Jonathan Cecil Exclaiming at the twists stammering for the weak characters dialogs speaking with elouence for the stronger ones and providing voice overs to the vast number of individuals the narrator has made the listening experience thoroughly enjoyableThe entire book is filled with uotable uotes listing a few of themMarriage is not a process for prolonging the life of love sir It merely mummifies its corpseHe had that extra four or five inches of neck which disualifies a man for high honors in the beauty competitionI could make a poet out of far less promising material I could make a poet out of two sticks and a piece of orange peelMy Opinion It has always been a tremendously difficult task to review the works of PG Wodehouse His books pose a big challenge for reviewing due to their complex plots and hilarious misunderstandings among characters The rich vocabulary usage laced with meticulous similies and laughable yet plausible character descriptions make this dish extremely enjoyable
