The White Feather

by P.G. Wodehouse

Not as funny as I'd expected, but I'm not holding it against the author. I'm willing to read another of his books maybe someday. This story, being about a young man with few friends who learns boxing to save face after running away from a fight, is perhaps not so ripe for humor as some other topics Wodehouse has explored. I was enticed by the English boarding school setting and visions of athletic young men, so I wasn't just in it for the yuks. Pretty good, though: short, well-written (despite some dated language and references), nicely drawn characters.
