pelikan’s book reviews

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.

Becki Willis - Christmas Crimes in a Small Community
FEATURED AUTHOR - As an avid reader herself, Becki Willis likes to write about believable characters in believable situations. Many of her books stem from personal experiences. (No worries; she's never actually murdered anyone.) She's won several awards, but the real compliments come from her readers. Becki loves spending time with her family, unraveling a good mystery, traveling, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.  As our Author of the Day, Willis tells us all about her book, Christmas in The Sisters.
