Review: The Girl in Blue

The Girl in Blue
The Girl in Blue by P.G. Wodehouse
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

(err..spoilers ahead)

What do you get when you mix together a morose America corporation lawyer who brightens whilst writing poetry, who is troubled mainly because he is saddled with a sister who shoplifts out of academic interest, a golden hearted British Lawyer whose life has just brightened because he has acquired “The girl in Blue”, his elder brother who is saddled with an estate with a beautiful lake which he wishes he could drain away and who wants two hundred and three pounds, six shillings and fourpence and a money lender’s agent acting as a butler ? A brilliant cocktail and quite potent. Add to it, our hero, Jerry who cartoons for a living but now has to steal back “The girl in blue” from the shoplifting damsel to get his inheritance out of the Trust and win his girl, and then you have “The girl in blue”. Apart from the dampener of a heroine (well, the younger one) with just a bit-part, a good one !
