At first, The Man Who Was Thursday seems no more than a detective story that also has both poetry and politics, as well. But it soon becomes a mystery that grows more mysterious, until it is nothing less than the mystery of creation itself.

This is Chesterton's most famous novel. Never out of print since it was first published in 1908, critics immediately hailed it as amazingly clever, a remarkable acrobatic performance, and a scurrying, door-slamming farce that ends like a chapter in the Apocalypse. One reviewer described how he had read it in one sitting and put it down, completely dazed.

    " The fact that the reader is NOT omniscient adds to the reader's suspense as to what is actually happening. Gradually, more is revealed. "

    " Written in 1904. Crazy story around the infiltration of an anarchist organization by a police officer. Good suspense. Some interesting philosophical thoughts throughout the book. Some tasty dialogues too. The ending is quite lame though... "
