Jeeves and the Wedding Bells: Summary and book reviews of Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks
The book is funny, but it’s not laugh-out-loud hilarious like the originals are. At best, one can finagle an occasional chuckle. I suspect Faulks was too constrained by the parameters of his construct to really let loose and launch something on his own. By worrying too much about conforming to style, he loses some (although not all) substance. Of course one can hardly blame Faulks for this. This experiment is probably a case of darned if you do and darned if you don’t. (Reviewed by Poornima Apte).
