Jeremy Garnet, a second-rate novelist, gets talked into joining his old pal Stanley Featheringstonehaugh Ukridge in an insane plan to start a chicken ranch. Garnet should bail out on his crazy friend, but he falls in love with one of Ukridge's neighbors, Phyllis. Soon he is up to his neck in sick chickens, bad debts, a hostile future father-in-law, a sinister plot, and dirty golf. It all gets a bit thick, what? (Summary by Mark Nelson)

Another wonderful pairing of Wodehouse and Mark Nelson

(5 Sterne)

I had to warm up to the Ukridge character. I mean, "it's a bit hard" to understand why Garnet would have anything to do with such a Buffoon. But once the story gets going and the initial shock of Ukridge's personality dies down there is much to enjoy in this story. As always Marks reading is flawless and his character voices are spot on. It is easy to recommend anything Read by Mark Nelson and he does a particularly great job when he reads Wodehouse.

Nasterful reading, as always. too be fair, not my normal genre, though I like to think I'm unbiased. Easy to like characters. The story trends too take a while before it gets interesting, even after you finally begin to comprehend the outdated and sometimes foreign lingo. I probably would have stopped reading had it not been an audio book. At some point, I felt I had too finish it, bite to the anoint of life already invested.... I personally do not recommend. However, again, Mr. Nelson is spot on in his delivery!

You Must Read This

(5 Sterne)

Ukridge has a good heart & good intentions but doesn't seem to want to research ventures before going into them. So, he does make your head shake often but you can't help but love him. Near the end when he's in the pool cheering his friend to fight for the girl he loves is when I couldn't help but laugh out loud, a lot! This happened when hearing about the hen named after his aunt earlier. A pure Wodehouse delight!

great stuff

(5 Sterne)

All these blighted critical reviews, it’s hard. To quote our good author, “If there is one thing I dislike, it is the man who tries to air his grievances when I wish to air mine.” Mr Woodhouse is hilarious. It’s not the destination, it’s the journey people. And to our dear reader, keep it up old horse!

great reader, ok tale

(3 Sterne)

the reader did an excellent job. very clear audio & voice of characters defined. but this book was only so-so. it has its cute and humorous moments. but overall I think I just tired of the style of writing & but the end of the book was a little bored with it.

Love those chickens, what?

(4,5 Sterne)

Excellent reading of a fun book. Mark Nelson reads the text with an enthusiasm and style that brings the text to life as well as the characters and the genteel world they inhabit. I suspect he is a true fan of the author.

good book, nicely read. A good book can be diminished by being poorly read. I appreciate the volunteers, but there should still be discernment in whether or not you are doing yourself or the author justice. thanks Mark for another well done reading!!
