Chickens. Things don’t always turn out the way we plan. In her novel titled, Barn 8, Deb Olin Unferth introduces readers to a group of activists who plan to rescue a million chickens from the barns on a factory farm. What could possibly go wrong? Unferth’s writing leads us to care about the cast of characters and to love the chickens, while allowing the madcap action to unfold. I like a funny story that has an important message and this book had me laughing and thinking. There’s really no limit to the things we’ll do for love. Fans of imaginative and well-written fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
