Roanoke Time recommends Chesterton for Summer Reading

Recommended by a homeschooler, too.
“The Man Who Was Thursday ” is classic, but short, for the medium to avid reader.
It has a suspenseful, quickly paced plot. The book tells the story of Gabriel Syme, a spy in England. It follows him though intricate webs of anarchy, battle and deceit. At only about 100 pages, the book is a quick read and once you pick it up, it’s hard to put down.
Overall, “Thursday” is a magnificent book. It sparks thought about the nature of life, of good and evil and of government. There are twists and nuances all through the book.
By far one of the most entertaining and suspenseful novels I’ve read, “The Man Who Was Thursday,” will not disappoint.
