After a reference to Mr. Chesterton in Good Omens (Terry Pratchett-Neil Gaimen) I thought I'd give it a try. If you like mystery combined with a bit of humor, you'll like this one.

I tried to work my way through this. I really wanted to. But like alot of "classic" literature, i couldn't understand it & couldn't get into it.
