Many readers think that PG Wodehouse s comic novels consist entirely of the urban Jeeves and Wooster cycle But that would be a mistake because a significant portion of the author s 90 books are set in the Shropshire countryside at Blandings Castle presided over by the Ninth Earl of Emsworth and his prized back hog Empress HEAVY WEATHER 1933 mixes up greed guilt skullduggery young love and inclement summer weather with a cast that includes a London private eye minor nobility sweet local ingenues caustic relatives and old boys who are older than they used to be Even the sow has a role to play and of course there s an unflappable butler Beach Specifically the plot centers around a manuscript that is bound to cause great embarrassment to the Earl and his aging friends They want to keep the book from being published but newspaper magnate Lord Tilbury of London stands to make a lot of money off it and will go to great lengths to ensure its publicationOf course Wodehouse fans and those new to the genre are likely to appreciate in particular the author s satirical take on Interwar speech itself a mixture of upper class lingo slang and leftover Edwardianisms From the book If my niece Myrtle can t play Chopin s Funeral March in forty eight seconds I hope this house will be struck by lightning this very minute And by what I have always thought rather an odd coincidence it was There was a sort of sheet of fire and a fearful crash and the next thing I saw was Puffy crawling out from under the table He seemed aggrieved than frightened I remember He gave one reproachful look up at the ceiling and then he said in a peevish sort of voice You do take a chap so dashed literally In my opinion HEAVY WEATHER is not among the very best of Wodehouse but it is good enough and reliably funny EinFach Englisch Textausgaben Textausgaben für die Schulpraxis Echoes of the Empire The Mixed Voices of a Colonial Past 20th Century English Short Story young love and inclement summer weather with a cast that includes a London private eye minor nobility sweet local ingenues caustic relatives and old boys who are older than they used to be Even the sow has a role to play and of course there s an unflappable butler Beach Specifically the plot centers around a manuscript that is bound to cause great embarrassment to the Earl and his aging friends They want to keep the book from being published but newspaper magnate Lord Tilbury of London stands to make a lot of money off it and will go to great lengths to ensure its publicationOf course Wodehouse fans and those new to the genre are likely to appreciate in particular the author s satirical take on Interwar speech itself a mixture of upper class lingo slang and leftover Edwardianisms From the book If my niece Myrtle can t play Chopin s Funeral March in forty eight seconds I hope this house will be struck by lightning this very minute And by what I have always thought rather an odd coincidence it was There was a sort of sheet of fire and a fearful crash and the next thing I saw was Puffy crawling out from under the table He seemed aggrieved than frightened I remember He gave one reproachful look up at the ceiling and then he said in a peevish sort of voice You do take a chap so dashed literally In my opinion HEAVY WEATHER is not among the very best of Wodehouse but it is good enough and reliably funny

A pretty complex Wodehouse one has to take breaks from laughing to follow the interconnections I am not sure if the characterization stayed realistic towards the end but it was as always a highly entertaining very witty Big History laughing about how they acted thought and especially talked these days read Wodehouse is big at making his characters ideologies and mentalities look ridiculous without them even recognizing it s the core element of his writing style and many aspects of satire and comedy itself with thousands of variations tropes and characters rotating around the funny match made in the combination of arrogance bigotry and ignorance and stupidity blurred self concept and narcism The 2 serious elements behind the giggle are the mechanisms of marriage and eccentricity of rich people who don t know what to do with their time How and why human breeding and relationships have been instrumentalized for advantages faith tradition whatever was a very tragic and sad thing as it brought so immense suffering to many involved Sheer luck and coincidence could bring the love of ones life or the devil into the bedroom the parents and social norms decided what to do Society is far away from being free from these conventions it s just only socioeconomic status and not all the other weird historical factors any Eccentricity can be harmful or harmless but in most cases it s a sign of decadence and in some a case of mental illness The line between hobby perfection obsession and OCD is very thin and if someone has the cash to do whatever shehe wants it can escalate uickly just look at the pile of corpses god emperors and kings of the past created for their hobbies not even thinking a moment about the conseuences for others although they died in front of them Today the suffering is outsourced and no bloodstains are visible but extremely expensive hobbies that eat away massive resources are nothing to be proud of I am waiting for an author who makes fun of the current delusional ideas in a similar way

This is the seuel to Summer Lightning aka Fish Preferred the action begins a few days after that book ends Since I just reread the earlier book I followed up with Heavy Weather Like its predecessor this book represents Wodehouse at his best As such it s very funny but at the same time it s somewhat emotional than a typical Wodehouse farce Through a romantic misunderstanding two of the main characters are unhappy through much of the book and I mean deeply unhappy not Wodehouse funnyunhappy And one of those characters Sue Brown turns out to be the daughter of Dolly Henderson the only woman Galahad Threepwood ever loved Gally s disapproving family sent him to South Africa and by the time he got back Dolly had married someone else So in this similar situation Gally helps Dolly s daughter straighten out her romantic problems and reminisces about her mother Read Summer Lightning first then read this one It s funny and sometimes touching
