Critic Reviews

"G. K. Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday is a wacky, nightmarish, deliriously well-written adventure story for grownups in which nothing is what it seems and everyone wears a mask, whether figurative or literal. It's hard to think of a more thrilling book." (Kate Christensen, Time magazine's Summer Reading List 2009)

marvelous

The narrator, Nigel Peever, gives such a great performance of Chesterton's most entertaining tale! Combines suspense, humor, philosophy, and brilliant one-liners.

Fantastic Story!

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. I read this book many years ago and enjoyed it, but the narrator makes it an even more enjoyable experience. I know you're going to like this one.

Better after my 2nd listen

So glad I listened again! I was disappointed with the ending after my first listen...an ending which will not lend itself to those who feel compelled to skip to the end. It's a clever twist on a mystery with clever twists and both funny and profound. The narrator delivered a great performance with different voices and accents. I will listen to this again for those times when I wish to escape my thoughts.

Good story, great narration...

Very twisty story, full of intrigue and suspense. Chesterton is master of descriptive storytelling, and this is brought to the fore even more so by the wonderful narration of Nigel Peever.

The man who was Thursday

An excellent book!It made more sense once it ended.I may have to re read it.I felt like I do while reading some Neil Gaiman or Pratchett books,totally lost but YES that makes sense!lol I will be pondering this one for a bit.Nigel Peever makes anything worth listening to.His narrations are excellent. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
