The Man Who Was Thursday

by G.K. Chesterton

Wonderful. Chesterton's prose is dazzling. His use of color and imagery is fresh and lively. The pace is almost frenetic. There is nothing musty about this novel, so give it a try.

Keep in mind, though, it's not a "straight" novel--more of an allegory. But that will only disappoint people obsessed with realism.

It seems he only wrote four or five novels. Pity.

I will read the rest as time allows.
