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

Love Among the ChickensMany of the themes which Wodehouse was to make his own This edition uses Wodehouse's 1920 revised edition of the 1906 original. 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
