I lost my backpack thanks to this book. This book was a wild and fun ride as Chesterton befuddled and surprised me time and again right to the end. Why have you let the boys live? He wrote a hundred books, contributions to more, judves of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horsefi Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, educated at St.

The climax of the book is quite thrilling and profound.

It begins with a scene which I found a bit hard to get into, in which Syme, a policeman, debates an anarchist poet, Gregory, over the meaning and value of anarchy and poetry.

Reading Chesterton’s afterward, it was easy to believe that the book represented a look back at a long dark teatime of the soul, in which he wandered through the various camps of late fie century thought, and while I don’t agree with Chesterton’s eventual refuge in the Catholic church, his time finding that refuge led him to sympathize with most of the people he later disagreed with.

I’m sure this was brilliant, but most of it just went right over my head haha. At it’s heart of hearts it answers the question “Why does God allow suffering? That’s a lot for such a small volume, almost enough to overwhelm it as a fictional work completely. View all 5 comments.

I had absolutely no idea where the story was going until about a third of the way in, and even then, the ending came as a marvelous surprise.
