Series: Paul O'Grady's autobiography
This was quickly put to rights when the next morning we complained to our farmer landlord. What a fascinating book this has turned out to be. It is almost like "a Bible" of country life and he covers every aspect I can think of in his gentle, easy, light-hearted, and also sometimes quite sad tales of his life living out in the country.
He manages to turn all the difficult times he has experienced into a pleasure to read. He describes the antics all his farm animals that he looks after.

His encounters with his geese are really amusing. I don't think I would turn my back on any of those belligerent creatures. He also is faced with creatures like the fox who keeps on stealing his hens. Yet somehow there seems no real animosity towards this thief who visits and feasts upon the hens both day and night. His love of his own dogs is often described on and off throughout the book and having seen him at Battersea with the many dogs he interacts with in his dry yet amusing way there is no mistaking how much he cares about them.
I found his detailed descriptions of various herbs, flowers, trees et al and lots of traditional country folklore most interesting. He seems to cover every aspect possible. Superstitions in general are covered in detail. I suspect much of these were handed down by his own Mum.
An example - Never put shoes on a table. Not being superstitious myself I suppose I did find these quite quaint but I know many people take them seriously. Paul is a natural writer with an easy style and his gentle humour is fun to read.
He is completely honest about knowing nothing about country life at first so to read about his many 'learning experiences' is interesting too. In the midst of all his detailed descriptions of life in his country home I found his own previously hidden persona comes through and is honest and endearing.
He is never too proud to hide all the mistakes he has made and is obviously content with his life style. Dotted all through the book are many recipes to tempt his readers whether they like to cook or not. The very many diverse topics he covers all blend together to make a wholly enjoyable read.
Running through the whole book is his own delight with his way of life and his love of getting up each day to tackle whatever his day brings. I found this book not just absorbing but fun to read also. I recommend it highly to anyone with a love of country life. View 2 comments. Jan 21, Sue Frances rated it it was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Paul O'Grady is one of my favourite people on the television, I love seeing him at Battersea Dogs home.
In this book he talk's about his life in Kent with all his various animals and he made me laugh out loud whilst reading it! It includes chapters on his garden and some favourite recipe's. Brilliant book, I loved it! Currently I'm loving books about people escaping everyday life, and moving to the middle of nowhere: I feel like this is what I need.
This book is wonderful. I've watched Paul on the television since I was a child, so to read his witty tales has been a pleasure. I've laughed out loud with glee at some of these tales, and of course felt saddened by others. Buster the dog is a legend. Paul doesn't mince his words, h Currently I'm loving books about people escaping everyday life, and moving to the middle of nowhere: Paul doesn't mince his words, he gives a true to life account of living in the country, with his valiant attempts at country life being nothing but entertaining.
There's also some fab recipes in there, with some unique anecdotes to boot. What's not to love! Jul 03, Tracey rated it it was amazing.
I loved this book. A very interesting insight into pauls current life. Jan 22, Blagovesta rated it it was amazing. Paul O'Grady's Country Life has transported me to his home in rural Kent, which sounds like a lovely, magical place where people follow Nature's rhythm, growing their own fruit and veggies, making jam and home-made pies, observing traditions and shivering when the electricity fails due to heavy snow, haha.
Through the book, I met all of Paul's animals - the dogs, sheep, pigs, owls, chickens, the Geestapo: It was a delight!

He writes as he talks - such an eloquent, elegant, witty style. This book now holds a special place in my heart. Plus, it has some great recipes for scones, soup and pies, which I'll surely try! Jan 21, Carol rated it it was amazing. I absolutely loved this book. As I was reading, I could hear Paul's voice in my head.
I so loved hearing the animal stories, and seeing all the photos of them. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody.

The second book was very good too. However, this last one barely held my interest. He skipped nearly 20 years - the years he became really famous, which I found baffling.
The last third of the book seemed to be just rambling, as if he were writing a diary. I rushed to finish it, as it was putting me to sleep. Hardcover Verified Purchase.
If you like Paul O'Grady, you will love his books. I have all of them, and I suggest reading them in chronological order if you're going to get them.
He's a funny man, and his books are well written and entertaining. He has an amazing life. Another walk down the road of non- stop mayhem! Paul doesn't dissapoint with the usual late nights, over the top entertainmet and funny occasions. There is also a few sad bits, especially if you have read his previous books where you get to know the characters Some pass on.
A great read and very frank. I enjoyed learning about how Lily came to be, and was surprised at the amount of hard work Paul O'Grady put in around the clubs before he became well known.
What is Kobo Super Points?
He described the seedy side of club life very well, and it was a very light hearted read. Enjoyed it. One person found this helpful. Paperback Verified Purchase. Read it while I was in hospital. The book really cheared me up. Lots of laugh out loud moments.
