Carry On, Jeeves, by P. G. Wodehouse

I did give the Jeeves & Wooster stories another try, and liked this book better than the first one I'd read. So either they're improving or they're growing on me. :) I liked "Clustering Round Young Bingo" best, because most of the characters were sympathetic for a change, and it was entertaining to watch Jeeves manipulate it so everyone with competing interests got what they wanted most, though not everything they wanted. But several of these stories had a mostly-sympathetic cast, which I suspect is why I liked them better. The plots are formulaic still, but that's not the point anyway.

The last story was narrated by Jeeves, for the first time, which made for an interesting switch, and he's just as self-interested in his manuevering as I thought. >:)

I'll give this one a 7, and will read some more later.

On an unrelated note but unworthy of its own post, I joined FlightRising.com because several of my friends are playing it. It's not a style of game that I've played before, but quarrel said it looked like Neopets with dragons, which sounds right. I'm LadyRowyn there, if anyone wants to friend me.
