World of Chickens

World of Chickens - Nick Earls

This is part of my ongoing quest to read all of Nick Earls books. This was his 6th book, his 5th adult book.

World of Chickens focuses on Phil and Frank who we came across several times in Earls' book of short stories, Headgames. Phil and Frank are working at Ron Todd's World of Chickens to earn money while doing degrees in medicine. Through out the book they meet some interesting people and have some funny and not so funny experiences.

I'm not sure what to say about this book. I enjoyed it although Frank's character just annoyed the hell out of me. It's a fun read, but not one you would have an indepth discussion about. It was fun. I'm looking forward to the next Earls book.


  1. Yes, Frank annoyed me too. I'm worried about people who aren't at least a little annoyed by Frank.

    I'm hugely impressed with the quest idea. Why can't everyone decide they're obliged to read all my books?

  2. How excitement Kylie!
    I'm going to post under Nick Earls, that way I can say I've had a close brush with celebrity. LOL
    I read a few Nick Earls books quite a few years ago now, can't remember exactly which ones, but I know Zig Zag Street was one of them, and I loved it! :-)

  3. I really want to read one of Nick Earl's books. Which is your favourite?

  4. hey earls, U mad bro?
