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.

Amusing sit-com.

"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.
