Reviews:
  • Lonesome Orange Kid
This is one of the greatest works of 20th century American literature. I have translated all three volumes into Farsi and the first two have already been published in Iran.

There is sexual content in the book but it is very subtle and not at all explicit.
  • Drelahuginn
The recommended dose for many of Wodehouse's books is not more than once a year. The book, if the aforementioned cap is enforced, retains the juice for a longer time, somewhat similar to a half-chewed piece of gum regaining some flavor once kept aside for a few minutes.

Big Money on the other hand seems to be a piece of Chicle that has an immense reservoir of spearmint (or your choice of toxic flavoring). I have read it, re-read it and then munched on it some more, multiple times a year, every year, without any appreciable loss of wit. This book is a gem, and along with other masterpieces like 'Joy in the Morning' the recommended dose can be safely exceeded, the only side-effect is an irritating, if not intolerable, pain in the sides from excessive mirth.

If you have read Wodehouse before then be sure to get this, if you have not, then consider other books and then come back and buy this.
  • Danial
Great final book in the trilogy.
  • Ffrlel
Interesting, but not my usual cup of tea.
  • lucky kitten
Very fun Wodehouse selection. Great narration.
  • Vital Beast
Real good book.

The USA between the wars was a struggle for equity between haves and have-nots like we do not see today. The characters are never at peace, they are either struggling to get ahead, are broken, battered members of the working class, or are somewhere in between trying to rise about the latter into the former. It is relentless. For any student of American history, this is a must. It does not present the lofty, happy American I believed to exist in my childhood. I know better the kind of American my grandparents and parents grew up in. It was worse then; much worse. I found it engaging as hell.
JDP really does something special with this one...
