|About the Book|
I have read most of these works at least once before, but working through this massive volume is giving me the joy of reading them again, sometimes for the third or fourth time, in a new context.This is not a great collection for a first time Chesterton reader, however. If you like fiction, start with the Father Brown Mysteries,which are light and easy to read, but will accustom you to the Prince of Paradox. Next, The Man Who Was Thursday or The Ball and the Cross . Then the Non Fiction, maybe a few of his short essays and Manalive. These are all available free from several sources, Gutenberg.org and Amazon.com , and paid with more features.I have this collection simply as a different way to read his great works, and to have all of them in one place.
