Genre #10 -- Suspense
The Man Who Knew Too Much by G. K. Chesterton
read 6/30/2010 - 7/1/2010
This was a fantastic read. I'm not sure why I haven't read this book before. Each chapter was its own separate mystery, which I really liked; however, all the chapters were tied together and came to a great conclusion in the final chapter. The mysteries were very ingenuous and quite enjoyable. My only regret is that I wish I knew a little bit more about English history so I could follow the politics of this book. I highly recommend this book and am considering having my high school students read a few of the chapters, if not the whole thing.
This book was part of my 2010 summer reading program.
