Many people think of P. G. Wodehouse only in regard to his Jeeves and Wooster characters, which PBS as made so popular. However, as we read Wodehouses earlier works, we can see much of the basis upon which he built those well known characters.

All in all, you know what you get when you read Wodehouse. If you expect deep thinking characters who will change the world, go somewhere else. If you want fun and laughter, read Wodehouse.

Three Men and a Maid is a laugh-out-loud early Wodehouse novel. As usual, young moneyed, clueless people wander through life without having any touch with reality. (One presumes Wodehouses young men will suddenly have some sort of epiphany and instantly become the stiff upper lip backbone of British society and the bubble headed young women will pull their heads out of the clouds and put on a cardigan sweater, some extra pounds, good sturdy shoes, and set about enforcing the rules of society which have so long frustrated our silly young men.) In Three Men and a Maid, young people fly into and out of love and engagements without a second thought. In fact, the Maid in this novel, Billie Bennet, was engaged to Eustace, Samuel, Bream, then to Samuel again in less than a couple of weeks.

Wodehouse spins a good yarn, twisting the plot and the characters dilemmas like a circus contortionist. This plot is somewhat familiar: a young man falls in love at first sight, makes convoluted plans to win her heart, plans backfire, burglars in the country house; yet, everything turns out right in the end.

This is typical Wodehouse, which guarantees that the reader is in for a lot of fun
