By Nigel Fitzgerald
Chicken House is written in the style of Animal Farm, though with a very different content. It was written so that it could be enjoyed by primary school children, high school children, and adults who have a political and historical flair. Most of the characters are real historical figures, except for the central ones such as Napoleon and Henry.
Any serious student of 20th century politics and history can see the point being made. Those who do not, can gain an insight into how current political decisions are made. The future projections in the book are the author’s personal opinions as to how the future will play out.
