“Lots of misunderstandings, word play at it’s very best but most of all, a heartwarming and witty story.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Clarence, Lord Emsworth, attempts to stay out of harms way and only wishes to enjoy his prize pig, The Empress, and read books on pig husbandry. He also spends a great deal of time attempting to stay out of reach from his sister Hermione who has taken it upon herself to try and bring Clarence and Blandings Castle into the sort of house she thinks it should be. Even hiring a secretary for Clarence!
Galahad, Clarences brother, has also moved into the castle for a short stay. His main aims are also to stay beyond his sisters reach and enjoy as much alcohol as possible whilst interfearing in everyone elses lives, to bring what he considers to be harmony to the household.
Poor Beech the butler has had his watch stolen!
If you know Wodehouse’s writing from either the Blandings books or his Jeeves And Wooster then you will know that the above scenarios all end up in a bit of an hilarious mess. Lots of misunderstandings, word play at it’s very best but most of all, a heartwarming and witty story. The only thing missing from this one is did Beech get his watch back?
