So so enjoyable
I loved this story so much, and Jonathan Cecil was brilliant at bringing the characters to life. Can’t fault it at all.

First time I've tried this series...
..thought I'd made a mistake as it starts realy slowly😴....
but actually winds up qwight nicely and actually found it hilarious in the closing chapters.
"Love Among the Chickens" tells the story of a London bachelor who is dragged out into the country by an old friend to start a chicken farm. Neither man knows anything about chickens so they make it up as they go.
The main character tells the story in a pompous, self-important air that would be very irritating if he wasn't talking about chickens. As is, it's quite funny, especially during the chase scene.
There are a few things that show the book's age, most notably several passages the speak fondly, even wistfully, about smoking.
Overall "Love Among the Chickens" is a fun, light story and if you like British humour you'll like it.
