I was really disappointed with this book, as I was expecting it to be something different to what it was. I expected it to be far more autobiographical. My favourite moments in the book were those about Julia's children and how they reacted about the chickens. However, a lot of the content was facts, figures and the history of chickens. Which would have been interesting in smaller doses, but I felt myself zoning out in these huge sections and contemplating whether to give up reading the book all together. I did enjoy certain aspects, don't get me wrong, such as reading about the chicken's personalities and their life in general. Overall, though, I have to give this book 3/10.
