My Man Jeeves

My Man Jeeves - P.G. Wodehouse

This is the first P.G. Wodehouse book I've read, and I was pleasantly surprised by how well the material has stood the test of time. There's no real depth to the tales, just light wit and entertainment.


The work is in the public domain, so I alternated between reading the e-book and listening to the Librivox recording. I found it to be a good choice as an audiobook, as I could often finish one story a day (half on my morning commute, and the rest in the evening). I've already downloaded another book of Jeeves stories. I might choose something else if they weren't free, but at the price, they're worth my commute time. :)


Fever Dream (Pendergast, Book 10)

Fever Dream - 'Douglas Preston',  'Lincoln Child'

I think this is the best Preston & Child collaboration I've read in quite some time. That being said, I felt somewhat unsatisfied with the "to be continued" aspects. I enjoyed the premise, but felt like we ran out of book before we could reach a better stopping point. Overall, I'd consider it a good effort with inadequate resolution.
