A bizarre little fable,
This review is from: The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare (The Best Adventure Stories Ever) (Paperback)
I made a bit of a mistake with this. I bought it hoping for a 'swashbuckling yarn' along the lines of The 39 Steps, King Solomon's Mines or The Prisoner of Zenda. What I got was a surreal fable, written in a very plain style, which ends without a satisfactory conclusion.
I suspect that this is in fact a very clever allegorical tale, but I am not clever enough to make sense of it and so found it a bit of a frustrating waste of time. That said it is only about 150 pages long and I what else are you going to on the Tube?

I agree with your review. All a bit too whimsical for my liking.
