Ok, so. Psmith is a sort of English dandy who leaves the fish business and sets out to make his fortune. He turns into a good-hearted con man of sorts (at least in this book). There's a manor. Jewels. Several unrelated characters who all end up knowing each other in funny little ways. Psmith meets a nice, feisty lady who helps him pull his con because it's for a good cause. Obstacles appear and Psmith steps over them debonairely (not a word).
He marries the girl. Jewels stolen and good deed done. Everyone's happy. Psmith is funny-ish in that he always has a semi-sarcastic-but-totally-serious response to the most outlandish of events. It's like watching a stuffy sitcom complete with awful laugh track. SHOULD HAVE BEEN MY JAM but was decidedly more my BUTTERED TOAST, in that is was fine but not awesome, so.
Maybe I should try the Jeeves books? Tell me, people. I thought this was silly.
Two stars out of your mom.
