I’ll not spoil this for anyone who hasn’t read it but as it’s a Chesterton one can naturally expect a thought-provoking read. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to probe deeper into their Christian faith.

Entertaining, but Chesterton feels slightly dated, the narrative seems almost childish in its "this happened, and this happened, and then this happened". Interesting ideas on infiltration of left wing movements which today are seems increasingly pertinent (as is would have been during the miners strikes), but I found it difficult to take seriously.

Never previously read anything by GK Chesterton but considering the year this was written it is something like Monty Python/Alice in Wonerland.
Very Funny

To some this book can be confusing but ... stick with it! It's funny and thought-provoking on so many levels!

A deep book. A strange read. Much to learn from this.

As always with the Penguin English Library this is a beautiful book.
The story itself is a great romp through the streets of London and beyond. A laugh out loud read, I would highly recommend this to anyone.

This book is beautifully written and thought out. It is a tale full of suspense and menace as it progresses. It all could so easily happen that you read with bated breath right up to the very end.I thoroughly recommend it.

Renowned for his Father Brown stories, GK Chesterton has created a small but perfectly formed classic nightmare-novel.Strange colours and landscapes form around a group of anarchists named after days of the week. The dreamlike quality is enriched by the familiar but almost otherwordly locations,london streets and parks, a winter's night by the Thames, frantic chases accross Northern France and the strange energy of the characters.
At once a realistic fairy tale or a fantastical account of a dream this short story is one to enjoy and immerse yourself in.
