Young Men in Spats, by P.G. Wodehouse

My sister complained recently that all I read anymore are P.G. Wodehouse books. Since she bought a gift card for my birthday, I decided to use it to branch out from Wodehouse books. I bought Wake Up, Sir! by Jonathan Ames, which the New York Times Book Review called a "Wodehouse novel for the recovery era."

But now I'm back in school and that book is going to have to wait. In the meanwhile, I read Young Men in Spats, a collection of Wodehouse stories. Most of the stories are of the "Eggs, Beans, and Crumpets" variety, with the final three being Mr. Mulliner stories.

I decided to read this book because one of the Drones stories is about Uncle Fred, and it precedes the Uncle Fred novels. I enjoyed it, but I liked the three Mr. Mulliner stories the best. I'd go into more detail, but it seems sort of pointless, since no one is reading this.

Rating: 6 out of 7 giant inflatable monkeys.
