Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent collection of Chesterton  Mar 10, 2006
I must say that I immensely enjoyed these three books by Chesterton. Manalive was my favorite of the three, followed by The Ball and the Cross, then The Flying Inn. I have individually reviewed each of the three, so I won't go into them here (just look up the books individually if you want to read about them). A previous reviewer said that The Flying Inn was the only book in this collection worth reading. I strongly disagree. Manalive and The Ball and the Cross became two of my favorite books after reading them. Manalive is definitely one of the best five books that I have ever read.

As to this specific edition, I was very pleased with the in-text notes. They really explain a lot of issues, and give information about many of the (somewhat) obscure historical figures that Chesterton referrences a lot (obscure in our time, not his). I do have one complaint about this edition, though: the introductions. I do not like to have the ending spoiled for me, and I knew that introductions to Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday had spoilers in the editor's introduction, so I decided to put off reading the introduction to this collected work until I had read the works. I am glad I did, because there are spoilers for both The Ball And The Cross and Manalive in the introductions, so DO NOT READ THE INRODUCTIONS unless you want to be deprived of the surprise which Chesterton indended for readers reaching the end of his books. I am very disappointed that Chesterton's editors repeatedly feel the need to give away the endings before the book even begins. Other than that, though, this was an excellent editions of some very hard to find Chesterton novels.

Overall Grade: A (Chesterton: A+, This edition: A-)
 
hold on a sec  May 10, 2005
You gotta be careful with Chesterton. When he's at his best, he can't be beat, but he was also responsible for some clunker novels. Even Chesterton's most avid readers have to admit this.

Well, such are the first two novels in this omnibus: forgettable.

The only one of them worth reading -- but it's REALLY worth reading -- is "The Flying Inn" about a future England which has fallen under the spell of a super-virile form of Islam.

However, if you are going to only read this novel (a course of action I heartily recommend), there's a much cheaper edition out there, the Dover Thrift edition: ISBN 048641910X, also available on this site. A much more prudent purchase.
 
An Excellent Group of Novels  Aug 31, 2004
These three novels are wonderful and the introduction and notes superb. Highly recommended for anyone who has been waiting a long time to find these rather rare books in a ready format.
