    With each book of Wodehouse s that I finish, it is always with a little bit of regret Even though P.G Wodehouse is attributed to over a hundred published works, I ve still got quite a bit of my life ahead of me, and it will be a sad day indeed when I ve run out of fresh Wodehouse books to read Oh well, at the very least I can start rereading, and hopefully by then my memory will be going bad, so each reread will feel just like new again Anyway, Love Among the Chickens is Wodehouse in true fo With each book of Wodehouse s that I finish, it is always with a little bit of regret Even though P.G Wodehouse is attributed to over a hundred published works, I ve still got quite a bit of my life ahead of me, and it will be a sad day indeed when I ve run out of fresh Wodehouse books to read Oh well, at the very least ...

    We are most of us wise after the event When the wind has blown, we can generally discover a multitude of straws which should have shown us which way it was blowing Pearl of wisdom or gem of witticism Probably both You can always find memorable lines like this in any Wodehouse book, which is why reading his books is always worthwhile There are numerous Wodehouse books available in the public domain, to read or download for free online Unfortunately not all his books are in th...

    Stanley Ukridge is no Jeeves,His eccentricities make others grieve.Garnet unlike Corky,Is dull and dorky.Phyllis is the one he loves,Woos her like a lonesome dove.Creditors swarm the farms,Rummaging chickens with their arms.Amongst a mass of satiric bliss,It is acceptable to give this a miss.

    P.G.Wodehouse Love Among the Chickens Complete and unabridged Read by Jonathan CecilJonathan Cecil is my favourite reader for P G Wodehouse, mainly for his rich rounded vowels, but also because he reads them unabridged, and Wodehouse is an author who rarely wrote an unnecessary word Love Among the Chickens opens in London, but most of the action takes place in Dorset, which the irrepressible scrounger Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge and his jolly new wife Molly have identified as an ide P.G.Wodehouse Love Among the Chickens Complete and unabridged Read by Jonathan CecilJonathan Cecil is my favourite reader for P G Wodehouse, mainly for his rich rounded vowels, bu...

    Love Among the Chickens represented Wodehouse s first foray into adult fiction Prior to Chickens, Wodehouse had focused on children s or young adult literature, mostly school stories set in English boarding schools These were often humorous, but one couldn t help but feel like Wodehouse was holding back a bit by fitting his tales to the tastes of younger readers Happily, that is not an issue with the present novel.In Chickens, a bored novelist Jeremy Garnet accepts an offer from his boori Love Among the Chickens represented Wodehouse s first foray into adult fiction Prior to Chickens, Wodehouse had focused on children s or young adult literature, mostly school stories set in English boarding schools These were o...

    I ve said it before, and I expect to say it again, when I feel down Wodehouse is my go to guy Love among the Chickens is his first novel to feature Ukridge, who is not the most reliable character when it comes to business I think that is the politest way to describe him The storyteller is a not too successful novelist, who Ukridge manages to involve in his latest get rich fast scheme, building up a chicken farm where in Ukridge s mind the eggs will turn to gold.It is Wodehouse sixth novel, so I ve said it before, and I expect to say it again, when I feel down Wodehouse is my go to guy Love among the Chickens is his first novel to feature Ukridge, who is not the most reliable char...

    A writer, his mooching friend and his friend s new wife start a chicken farm None of them knows anything about chickens, and hilarity ensues.The best thing about this book is Wodehouse s wordplay in the scenes with the animals, whether it s Bob the dog or that most sardonic of hens, Aunt Elizabeth No one does it better.Whe...

    I didn t enjoy this one nearly as much as the other Wodehouse novels I ve read recently.The main character is a bit dull and was not really enough of him to justify the story The story was a little too hard to believe I know, I know, all of the stories are hard to believe, but this one wasn t so much involved in that magical world Wodehouse normally creates and so when it went over the top it left me on the other side.There is an interesting remark made by one of the female characters that I didn t enjoy this one nearly as much as the other Wodehouse novels I ve read recently.The main character is a bit dull and was not really enough of him to justify the story The story was a little too hard to believe I know, I know, all of the stories are hard to believe, but this one wasn t so much involved in that magical world Wodehouse normally creates and so when it went over the top it left me on the other side.There is an interesting remark made by one of the female characters that the narrator who is also a young novelist doesn t write very convincing female characters And, do you know what, none of the female characters in this book are at all convincing And now I think of it, I would doubt there would ever be a play called Wodehouse s Women Then again, in this book particularly, none of the male characters were very convincing either If y...

    I kept thinking of Garnet as the hapless narrator but then it occurred to me he really isn t The things that are happening to him are happening because he s allowing them to He must know that having the father of the girl he loves nearly drowned so he can rescue the poor man can t end well He can plainly see that Ukridge is making a mess of things, yet he merely shrugs it off He s an odd figure, likable enough, yet not entirely sympathetic Still and all, th...

    I d call this classic Wodehouse, if not quite up to his best and then I realize it s his first novel, written at age 25 Astonishing that he had his characteristic silliness of plot and perfection of tone right from the start ...
