Chickens Eat Pasta is the tale of a young Englishwoman who starts a new life after watching a video showing a chicken eating spaghetti in a medieval hill village in central Italy. As events unfold, the strong story portrays a rich Italian life from the inside with a supporting cast of memorable characters. Along the way, the book explores and captures the warmth and color of Italy, as well as, some of the cultural differences between England and Italy and between regional Italian lifestyles and behavior. It's a story that proves anything is possible if you only try.

What would it be like to up sticks and move to Italy? If you have ever asked yourself the question, join Clare Pedrick in her journey as she moves to Italy and slowly is ensnared by the charm of the place. The book is funny and charming and all the characters so delightful one is sad to say goodbye to them at the end. It is a lovely trip into the heart of Italy. Delicious food, lovely countryside, hot blooded Italians and a young woman who slowly falls in love with a house,a village and a life. This lovely book is beautifully read by Colleen MacMahon, whose voice is very easy on the ear and who seems so very much in tune with the book and author. A great listen.
