You won't put it down!,
This review is from: The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare (Twentieth Century Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
In this short text, Chesterton shows himself to be a master of a wide variety of styles - the genres of thriller, humour, fantasy, horror and philosophy are only some of those employed by him in this captivating tale. The scholarly introduction illuminates the reader's understanding, whilst also giving details of the contemporary reaction to the text and Chesterton's understanding of it. Although a very different kind of story, this is no less entertaining and thought-provoking than Chesterton's Father Brown stories, and is guaranteed to keep you guessing in just the same way!
