His jaw wassquare, and protruded slightly; and this, combined with a certainathletic jauntiness of carriage and a pair of piercing brown eyesvery much like those of a bull-terrier, gave him an air ofaggressiveness, which belied his character. He was not aggressive. He had the good-nature as well as the eyes of a bull-terrier.

Wodehouse has little interest in being heralded in the literary circles. He writes to entertain. He was exceptionally popular for so long because he weaves a fabric of flawless narrative texture from start to finish. I rarely find writing these days with a satisfying range of social and physical geography. This book and the majority of Wodehouse successes give an accurate portrait of big city life in the 30s and 40s from New York skid row at the bottom to the estates of landed gentry in Buckinghamshire at the top. His character are thoroughly fleshed out and their struggles and fortunes are always fresh and compelling. Many of the books are available gratis in the kindle ebook library.

Wodehouse nails it one more time.
The characters in this story are interesting and the storytelling superb.
Not a laugh out loud book as are some of the other efforts I have read from this author but humorous enough to put a smile on my face.

And was enjoyable; however, it was marred by the strong dialect of Spike. It slowed the reading process and took away from the flow. Still in all, it had that familiar ring so familiar with other works of his and I recommend it to his fans, just to add to your library of must reads.

No one says it better than Waugh:
Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.'' -- Evelyn Waugh in a BBC broadcast

I am a big fan of Wodehouse. The Intrusion of Jimmy is not one of his best, in my opinion, but is still very entertaining. Wodehouse is a master of clever descriptions and dialog, and there are more than a few chuckles here. Well worth reading.

Crisp dialogue straight out of vaudeville. The pain and loss Mr. Wodehouse can portray cuts right to the heart of anyone who has ever had a missed encounter. A stirring call to seize the day.

There is harmless crime and British asses and an overbearing older generation and a country estate and of course a pretty girl. This time the hero is American, which is a nice switch, but all the other Americans are fools of course except the pretty girl obviously. Anyway, nobody reads Wodehouse for the plots, he only had one plot, it's all about the language. Here the language is rich and full just like we like. If you read Wodehouse read this one too.

I haven't read any Wodehouse other than Jeeves, and this seems pretty lightweight by comparison, but it's a fun little farce. If you can get past the outdated slang and the abysmal (presumably intentionally so) "Bowery" accent of one of the characters, you'll find some good laughs.
