So, while scrolling on my Facebook timeline, I came across this gem. Apparently, the powers that be at KFC headquarters decided that just making finger-licking good chicken wasn’t enough of a challenge for them. They’ve decided to try their hand at writing and publishing a book, specifically, a novella.
Via The Grapevine:
The book, called Tender Wings of Desire (yes, they went there), reportedly tells the story of Lady Madeline Parker, who runs away from a loveless betrothal, only to meet a “handsome sailor with a mysterious past.” The story is set in Victorian England.
According to CNN Money, KFC claims that its sales spike by about 40 percent every Mother’s Day, making that special occasion the company’s best-selling day of the year. The company says it sells some 6.5 million pieces of chicken to some 380,000 families on Mother’s Day.
Out of sheer curiosity, I just downloaded my copy. Hey, who can resist a free book? I took the liberty of reading some of the customer reviews of the 3.8 out of 5.00 stars rated book. Some were less than favorable. One negative reviewer wrote ‘…the writing was some of the worse she’s ever seen…,’ while another gave it a one star rating due to ‘the lack of the mention of fried chicken, herbs & spices anywhere...’ On the other hand, some readers were pleasantly pleased with the book. One positive reviewer wrote ‘…this novella is tenderly romantic, capable of inducing deep thighs, er sighs, and having a leg up on the competition by being FREE.’
But, just in case the customer reviews don’t convince you to read it yourself, @KFC took the liberty of providing us a promo video, to peak our curiosity. Watch the video below
I don’t know, this Fabio wannabe sure makes it sound interesting. Stay tuned, my review is coming soon.
