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 We are most of us wise after the event When the wind has blown we can generally discover a multitude of straws which should have shown us which way it was blowing Pearl of wisdom or gem of witticism Probably both You can always find memorable lines like this in any Wodehouse book which is why reading his books is always worthwhile There are numerous Wodehouse books available in the public domain to read or download for free online Unfortunately not all his books are in the public domain in fact as far as I know there are only two Jeeves and Wooster books in Project Gutenberg s massive catalogue If you want to explore works of Wodehouse for free you will generally have to make do without this dynamic duo There are 42 Wodehouse titles listed at Project Gutenberg so the choice is almost bewildering I came to choose Love Among the Chickens because it is one of the very few Wodehouse titles formatted by the Standard EbooksOrg the formatting is very neat and superior to the same book formatted by Project Gutenberg not that Gutenberg does a terrible job Love Among the Chickens is the story of Jeremy Garnet an author of pulp detective novels Just when Garnet is in need of a change of scene and inspiration his friend Stanley Ukridge entices him to assist him in a chicken farming venture in Combe Regis in Dorsetshire Garnet readily agrees and while en route to Combe Regis he meets beautiful Phyllis Derrick and is immediately smitten He gets on well enough with Phyllis who enjoys reading his fiction but her father Professor Derrick is a highly cantankerous gentleman and getting on his good side is very difficult Garnet s attempt to befriend the professor is not helped by the unwanted assistance of his friend Ukridge who is a loudmouth idiot without social graces Desperate to make some headway with the professor Garnet stages a faux rescue that initially pays dividends until his scheme is rumbled The course of true love never did run smooth but Garnet s situation is ridiculousFor me any Wodehouse book without Jeeves and Wooster is immediately second tier or below There is magic in Jeeves wonderfully convoluted manner of speaking and his ingenious solutions to problems The contrast when he is paired with his boss Bertie Wooster whose daft antics always land him in the soup makes for some comedy gold All Wodehouse protagonists land themselves in the soup at some point in the narrative but only Bertie has Jeeves to fish him out Unfortunately for Garnet he has Ukridge one of Wodehouse less prepossessing recurring characters He is extremely stupid opinionated and always very insistent on having his ways He seldom stops talking long enough for anybody to get a word in For me Ukridge is the weak link of the novel he just rubs me the wrong way I have met people like him in real life and always find them unbearable However whatever flaws exist in a Wodehouse novel the book as a whole is always salvageable thanks to the author s wit and charms In spite of the title Love Among the Chickens does not place much emphasis on the romance scenes of Garnet s awkward courting are few and far between The comedy is reliant on high jinx involving rampaging chickens or creditors Wodehouse also gets a lot of mileage from Garnet s ill considered scheme to ingratiate himself with the professor I read Love Among the Chickens as an e book as well as an audiobook mostly simultaneously It makes for pleasant and amiable bus journeys to work While not exactly side splittingly funny it made me chuckle a few times and

morning I went on perseveringly feeling that an ounce of flattery is worth a pound of rhetoric I had not imagined Ukridge capable of such an excursion into metaphysics I saw the truth of his line of argument so clearly that it seemed to me impossible for anyone else to get confused over it I had certainly pulled the professor out of the water and the fact that I had first caused him to be pushed in had nothing to do with the case Either a man is a gallant rescuer or he is not a gallant rescuer There is no middle course I had saved his life for he would certainly have drowned if left to
