Reader's Thoughts


I love a man I have never met, and this book has made me love him more. G.K Chesterton has been dead for 50 years, yet when his death was reported in this book it brought a tear to my eye. This book gives insight into the man, as well as his writings and is a must read for any fan for G.K. Chesterton.

I did not want to put this book down. I cried at the end because I felt the impact of Chesterton's life upon me and all those who have been touched by his wit and wisdom. Pearce does a great job in using historical records and written works to give us a broader scope of the person he truly was.


This is a biography about one of my favorite people, by one of my favorite biographers! Needless to say, I am really enjoying this.

An amazing biography of a dazzling literary giant. I could not love this book more than I do. I was severely sad to have finished it.


Great literary treatment of Chesterton's life by a fellow convert to Catholicism.
