Overview

Love and Business

The preternaturally alert young man who holds the lime-light in George Randolph Chester's "The Early Bird", justifies the book's title. Not a worm escapes. In the course of a two week's vacation, when he "wasn't bothering at all about business," he had his way with a lot of seasoned capitalists and kept the control of a big undertaking which they had conspired to take from him, cut under one of them in a timber deal, bought at a bargain a big tract of land and made ready to make a summer resort of it, and acquired a fiancee under the very eyes of half a dozen other young men who had similar designs upon the lady. George Randolph Chester, who is the author of "Bobby Burnit," takes his hero through these breathless two weeks at a high pressure speed which leaves the reader little time for considering whether or not the story bears any resemblance to life as he knows it. But he does make his "early bird" a likable sort of young fellow, even if he does seem just a little too clever to be true.
