Love Among the ChickensAudiobook CD - 2005
Giving us our first jaw-dropping encounter with Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge, Love Among the Chickens launched P.G. Wodehouse's career, and that of his larger-than-life-hero. Ukridge has hit upon a foolproof plan to get rich quick: he's starting a chicken farm. Dragging his adoring wife Millie and his long-suffering friend and novelist Jeremy Garnet with him to Dorset, he begins his enterprise. En route, however, Garnet has fallen in love. Complications in classic Wodehousian style ensue, involving the taciturn Hired Man and his bumptious dog Bob, supercilious chickens, irascible professors, angry creditors, and divided lovers. For the lucky reader, it is sheer hilarity.
