Book reviews - The Man Who Was Thursday

The Man Who Was Thursday


Author: G. K. Chesterton
The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a metaphysical thriller that was first published by G.K Chesterton in 1908. The plot begins when Gabriel Syme first gets recruited to a secret anarchist division of Scotland Yard. Heavy with both Christian and religious allegories, the book then follows Syme during his time spent in the division. Rife with optimism, The Man Who Was Thursday is a larger story strung together by solid writing and themes of faith. In this way, the book serves as a great, thrilling tale of transformation, which explores the notion of poetry, the written word and finding light in the dark.
