Description

P. G. Wodehouse (15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English writer whose body of work includes novels, collections of short stories, and musical theatre. Wodehouse enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and his prolific writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of pre-war English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career.

An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by modern writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith and Terry Pratchett. Journalist and writer Christopher Hitchens commented, "there is not, and never will be anything to touch him."

Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of 15 plays and of 250 lyrics for some 30 musical comedies, many of them produced in collaboration with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton. He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes (1934), wrote the lyrics for the hit song "Bill" in Kern's Show Boat (1927), wrote lyrics to Sigmund Romberg's music for the Gershwin – Romberg musical Rosalie (1928), and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers (1928).

What a ripoff

:
I enjoy Wodehouse's books a lot and was thrilled to buy this one. Now that I have, I want a refund. Most of the features don't work as promised. The type quality is really bad on the iPad. There is no way to "flip" pages. Each chapter is one long page that you have scroll up and down. And if you press any of the buttons on the bottom, the reading pane resets to the first page. Very inconvenient and irritating. I have iBooks that I am very happy with. This one I will not recommend to anyone.

3/5 stars

Needs updating

:
Plusses and minuses. It's terrific to have so much of the master's output in my pocket and available any time, any place. The problem is there is so little reader convenience in the app. The bookmarking—what there is of it—is pathetically awkward. What's worse, there is nothing in the way of breadcrumbing, so you have no way of getting back to where you left off when the app loses your place for you—which it does constantly.

Apparently this is not the fault of the developer but is a problem inherent in what tools he has to work with in the development process. The same inadequacies show up in other book apps I have just purchased.

Hopefully Apple will improve the book usability for apps, especially for collections such as this.

High marks for the wealth of content and appreciation for letting us have the tools that are available for developers to employ.

More usability features need to be made available to developers.
