Man Who Was Thursday (Version 2)

Book cover
By: (1874-1936)

Man Who Was Thursday (Version 2) by G. K. Chesterton is a riveting and thought-provoking novel that keeps readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. The story follows the protagonist, Gabriel Syme, as he is recruited to join a secret police force that is tasked with uncovering a group of anarchists.

Throughout the novel, Chesterton weaves a complex and intricate plot that challenges readers to question their perceptions of truth, identity, and morality. The novel is filled with unexpected twists and turns that keep readers guessing until the very end.

One of the most compelling aspects of the novel is Chesterton's exploration of the nature of good and evil. The characters in the book are not easily defined as either heroes or villains, and the line between right and wrong is constantly blurred. This moral ambiguity adds depth and complexity to the story, making it a truly engaging and thought-provoking read.

Overall, Man Who Was Thursday (Version 2) is a captivating and intellectually stimulating novel that will leave readers thinking long after they have finished reading. Chesterton's masterful storytelling and philosophical insights make this a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the complexities of human nature and the nature of truth.

Book Description:
Subtitled by the author as a "Nightmare", this is a fantasy, comic thriller about a plot to end the world by a group of anarchists. Generally regarded as Chesterton's most impressive novel. - Summary by Anthony Ogus

probably my 5th or 6th time listening....and each time I hear something that I missed before....The book of Job...the ending is humility and a sigh

Subject: It was good to kill time. Not sure if I liked it or not.
The book was wonderfully read. The story held my attention but I guessed the plot by chapter 4. I was also disappointed with the ending. It felt like a different style of writing by the last 2-3chapters. I think if someone with less talent was narrating it I would have dropped this work for a different book.

Subject: Great book
The audio is fine but this book has so many gems that you really ought to read it. The combination of a mystery, an adventure and an allegory is seamlessly told. Chesterton cannot let a scene pass without both the horrible and the humorous. The whole story is filled with multiple layers of meaning, but never becomes bogged down in making a point rather than telling the story.

Subject: Fascinating Book
At first it's like a typical classic book and when you reached the ending, it was fictionated and broad, and you will be able to analyze your faith and your values and your worth of existence. Spellbounding.

Subject: review of Thursday
At first glance this seems to be a fast-paced adventure story with one twist after another. But at the climax you suddenly realize it's something even more. Suburb, thought-provoking book. It's narrated by a great reader.

Excellent, thought provoking book. Fascinating plot turns throughout. Skilled reader. Leads one to think on great themes of life, suffering, God, and eternity.

Good book, but the end is- disappointing.

Subject: Thumbs up
Terrific! Just terrific! Story and narration.

Subject: Surreal
Surreal doesn't begin to describe the latter portion of the book. In another context, I might have thought that the author and Timothy Leary (trite but well-known example) had collaborated after eating copious amounts of blotter acid. Having said that, the last 2 chapters are at once like paintings by Salvador Dali and Rembrandt, one superimposed on the other. After a slow start, this book (with it's outstanding narration) is well worth the listen.

What a joy to listen to this! So well read and so entertaining, poetic and simply enjoyable. I agree that the plot is predictable but the last sentence is just so beautiful and recognizable for any one who had that experience. Thanks a lot! Gabriella
