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 novelIn Chickens a bored novelist Jeremy Garnet accepts an offer from his boorish friend Ukridge to assist with the latter s latest business misadventure a chicken farm in Dorset Garnet signed on largely for the opportunity to play golf and swim in the sea but ends up finding romance in the country as well Unfortunately Ukridge s appalling behavior complicates things for our hero forcing Garnet into a very unorthodox courtshipThere is plenty of hilarity here the mercurial Ukridge and his sweet loving wife unconventional chicken farming Ukridge Garnet s stoic deadpan servant and much I thought that this was notably funnier than Wodehouse s previous books and the plot while simple was interesting and entertaining One note this book was apparently revised perhaps substantially by Wodehouse in 1921 I read the revised version which appears to be the one most widely circulated today Perhaps the original 1906 version was less polished but the revised version at least should definitely appeal to fans of Wodehouse s later famous work 40 stars recommended Engendering Song umorista inglese Ukridge ha deciso di allevare polli malgrado la sua totale incompetenza in materia Ne deriveranno incidenti imprevedibili incontri sentimentali situazioni inga.

FREE READ Love Among the Chickens

Rbugliate di una comicità irresistibile Su tutto domina la simpaticissima ed esuberante personalità del protagonista il vulcanico Ukridge dalla straordinaria vitalità dall'ingenua ma discutibile logica dalla disastrosa mancanza di tat. PGWodehouse 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 ideal place to set up a chicken farm Counterpointing him nicely as protagonist is the nervous novelist Jeremy Garnet O my sainted aunt who gives Wodehouse lots of opportunity for home truths about being an author

REVIEW · PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB × P.G. Wodehouse

Uale impresa può sembrare troppo rischiosa all'audace e candida fantasia di Ukridge uno dei personaggi più vivi e umani creati da Wodehouse uale ostacolo può fermare la sua dinamica esuberanza e il suo scoppiettante entusiasmo In uest. With each book of Wodehouse s that I finish it is always with a little bit of regret Even though PG Wodehouse is attributed to over a hundred published works I ve still got uite 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 form though I will admit that it was a bit of a deviation from the previous works of his that I have read so far Here it seems he has taken his story a tiny bit seriously than in his other works Instead of defaulting on the most ridiculously funny thing that he could think of he appears to rein in at a couple of spots and put out some sincere emotions and descriptions within the plot There is of course nothing wrong with this but it did seem just a bit off for Wodehouse so I checked on something and found out that sure enough Love Among the Chickens was one of his earlier written works If I were to venture a speculation I would say that this one has a lot of the fingerprints of an editor than Wodehouse s later works once he had established himself would have because the tone is definitely subdued Again Wodehouse is a great writer and acuits himself well no matter what direction he is steered but I think that had he been left to himself I might have read something a lot silly off the wall and generally hilarious though perhaps at the cost of some attachment to the story and characters Overall the story is flippant fantastic fun and provides plenty of pure PG playfulness

    Such a funny story I really enjoyed the slapstick style Ukridge and the well meaning Garnet They get into all sorts of scrapes and land on their feet time and time again But of course that won’t always happen When Ukridge deeply offends the father of the girl Garnet has fallen in love with Garnet has his work cut out for him Things at the c

    I'd call this classic Wodehouse if not uite 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 star

    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 m

    I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as the other Wodehouse novels I've read recentlyThe 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 sideThere is an interestin
