Overview

The Man Who Knew Too Much (Illustrated) by G. K. Chesterton

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

Although G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) is often known for his wit, a characteristic that earned him the nickname “Prince of Paradox,” it would do a disservice to the prolific writer to mention just one aspect of his work. In fact, Chesterton is still read heavily in subject matter as diverse as philosophy, ontology, poetry, journalism, biographies, and mysteries. In addition to writing for papers, Chesterton wrote dozens of books, hundreds of poems and short stories, some plays, and thousands of essays in his 62 years of life. He produced seminal religious works such as Orthodoxy, as well as the biographical Charles Dickens: A Critical Study.

This edition of Chesterton’s The Man Who Knew Too Much is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Chesterton.

I rarely leave reviews but I am hoping to help others avoid frustration and dissapointment. Thankfully I didn't spend a cent on this book because it was impossible to read. I have read free classics in ebook format before that had an occassional typo, but this was ridiculous! Not only are there so many typos and strange symbols that getting through one page felt like solving a mystery in itself, but there are also many sections out of order and the titles of other stories pop up out of no where in the middle of random sentences. Again, this is unreadable and the issues go far beyond a few typos! Don' t waste your time and memory space!

Yes my friends, there are typos to this book; so what. I have been collecting older books and stories for years, and find the quantity of the book far more important than the quality of the typeset. The mysteries were well plotted and layer out. Considering the date of this book, well written indeed

Dont just decide your rates on typos because no one cares about your complaints . The book was good great flow and i reccomend this for ages 10+ but if you want to give a shot on it you will be fine.
