Engaging, informative, and quietly suspenseful. This book really brought me back to my younger days. I’ve was hoping for a hard hitting expose of the difficult life a chicken faces, however I was rewarded with so much more. Despite any ostacle faced it seemed that Crispy was always one step ahead of the frying pan. With all this fame I thought he would lose his head, but as it turns out Crispy is the same down to earth chicken that he has always been. I’m sure this will make it it the Bangkok best sellers list in no time.Overall I would say that this book is one of the best in the series—tense and tightly wound, with death relentlessly circling, stalking, lurking behind every shadow and yet through it all there is a beam of happiness. If your frying pan doesn’t have a chicken in it then your coffee table should have this book. I was disappointed about the crude remarks made about my favorite restaurant (KFC) but I came to understand that Crispy is biased against them not because what they’ve done to his family but that it has caused indigestion for milllions. Really Crispy was just thinking of what’s best for people that can’t get enough gravy.My favorite excerpt is from page 53 where Crispy reflects on why his mother was so disappointed in him - “I just wasn’t cracked up to be a stay at home chicken”. Another insight on page 54 revealed that Crispy always wanted to join a band because he already had the drumsticks. I can’t way until the sequel when Crispy goes to Turkey.
