Mike on these occasions was silent and jumpy, his brow "sicklied o'er with the pale cast of care." But Psmith followed his leader with the pleased and indulgent air of a father whose infant son is showing him round the garden. Psmith's attitude toward archaeological research struck a new note in the history of that neglected science. He was amiable, but patronizing. He patronized fossils, and he patronized ruins. If he had been confronted with the Great Pyramid, he would have patronized that.… (altro)

Not as laugh out loud as some of his better stuff. There are still moment of Wodehouse genius, but it gets bogged down in a lot of details about Cricket matches. ( )

Mike and psmith in school spend a lot of time cricketing. This is a book that doesn’t speak well of Wodehouse’ writing abilities. Move on to something else by Wodehouse! ( )

Excellent. Wodehouse hadn't quite developed his style, but it is still laugh out loud funny in places. He clearly is making fun of the gung ho manly boys at school novels popular in the early 1900s. If only there wasn't quite so much about cricket. What is a wicket anyway, and how do you get one? And what would you do with it? ( )

This, believe it or not, is the first Psmith book that I have read. Coincidentally, it is the first book in which Psmith has appeared as well.

The rough edges around Psmith's character are there, and I assume that it would take some time before the character would blossom fully.

For anyone not familiar with cricket, there would be some mystery in this, as well as Mike's love of the game.

The storyline moves along somewhat languidly, almost without purpose. The style is relatively more direct than is used in a Bertie Wooster book, where the witticisms and the plot pull you in. The sense of atmosphere is yet to be fully developed, and I felt that the. book ended somewhat abruptly. ( )

This book had me at 471 for 1. Seriously, we need to read more books by Wodehouse in these benighted times. And Psmith is practically Wodehouse's alter ego (Eton cricket team, bank job, highly eccentric, totally resourceful). ( )

If Mike had been in time for breakfast that fatal Easter morning he might have gathered from the expression on his father's face, as Mr. Jackson opened the envelope containing his school report and read the contents, that the document was not exactly a paean of praise from beginning to end.

The novel Mike and Psmith (1953) was originally published as "Lost Lambs" in the magazine The Captain, April–September 1908.   "The Lost Lambs" also forms the second half of the novel Mike (1909), the first half of which republishes the serial "Jackson Junior", in which Psmith does not appear.   [see: Psmith in WikipediaMike in Wikipedia]
