Title: Jeeves And The Feudal Spirit
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
Main Characters: Florence, Bertie, Aunt Dahlia, Percy, Uncle Tom, Lord Sidcup, Mr. & Mrs. Trotter, Ma Trotter, Stilton and Jeeves
Description of one of the main characters: Lord Sidcup is very interested in old silver. He collects those like Uncle Tom. He is also an expert in jewellery. He had studied about diamonds and pearls. He is also called Roderick Spode. Uncle Tom shows Aunt Dahlia's pearl necklace to Sidcup to check whether it is original.
Whom I like and why: I like Jeeves very much. He is honest and loyal. He adjusts to awkward situations. He finds a way for Wooster's and Aunt Dahlia's problems. He is really intelligent and quick-witted.
Whom I dislike and why: I dislike Stilton as he is really annoying. He disturbs everyone in the Brinkley court, the residence of Aunt Dahlia and Uncle Tom. He often gets in to fights with Percy, Florence and Bertie.
Setting/Theme of the story: Aunt Dahlia tries to sell her magazine, The Milady's Boudoir, to L. G. Trotter and his family. Florence and Stilton come to the Brinkley court to stay with Aunt Dahlia. Uncle Tom does not like this company and calls Lord Sidcup to stay with him and discuss about jewels. Aunt Dahlia, to get more money, sells her pearl necklace in London. When Uncle Tom informs Aunt Dahlia that he will be asking Spode to look at the pearl necklace, she does not know what to do. If Uncle Tom comes to know that she had sold it, he would be mad with anger. So Aunt Dahlia seeks Jeeves's help. Jeeves asks her to hand over the necklace to Bertie Wooster and just pretend that the necklace is stolen. But the plan doesnt work as Spode arrives a little earlier than expected. Later, the pearl necklace is found with Ma Trotter who is always jealous of it. Uncle Tom gets it back from Ma Trotter and Aunt Dahlia is saved.  Aunt Dahlia somehow makes L. G. Trotter buy the magazine and after much thought he accepts. Everything settles down perfectly.
