Reviews of : Manalive by G K Chesterton PDF Book
Inside this Book – This is quite possibly my favorite book. The “message,” storyline, characters, and even simply the choices of descriptive phrasing and wording all champion Chesterton’s favorite topic- the complete enjoyment of the “experiment of being.” This is probably not the best choice for an introduction to Chesterton- the book is more enjoyable if you already know Chesterton’s opinions and worldview. It felt like he wrote it not to prove anything or make a great earth-shattering statement, but to celebrate joy and life; a celebration which is better enjoyed by one who understands that Chesterton viewed joy and life as ways to praise God rather than simply ways to please yourself. The characters are better understood if you understand the character of the author.
Inside this book –Manalive PDF Book by G K Chesterton – The book starts in a London boarding house the day a wind kicks up, and with that wind comes a man named Innocent Brown, who first energizes everyone, then appears to do something criminally insane. The criminality is investigated, and it turns out that rather than being mad, Innocent Brown is in fact the sanest man that ever lived. He breaks into his own house because he wishes to learn how to covet his own goods. He threatens suicide-fancying men with death so that they can see that they really prefer life. He pretends to meet his own wife for the first time over and over so that he can see her as he knows she ought to be seen. And, as one character says, he did it all “in order to feel the same interest in his own affairs that he always felt in other people’s.
