The Quotable Chesterton- Kevin Belmonte

The Quotable Chesterton: The Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton

I've read some G.K. Chesterton over the last year, so I was very interested to review this book from BookSneeze.

This is a collection of well-known quotes and passages from the works of G.K. Chesterton.  The author, Kevin Belmonte, also takes a look at Chesterton as a novelist, poet, essayist, and literary critic.  The quotes are organized in alphabetical order by subject, which is nice for an organized person like me; and the mini sketches of Chesterton as an author are scattered throughout.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection.  It was very well organized, and every quote is documented, so you can read further from the original works.  I was so interested that I ordered a collection of 36 of Chesterton's works for my Kindle.  I'm looking forward to reading more!

I also really liked the way Belmonte worked the descriptions of Chesterton as a writer in varied genres into the book.  I never realized how flexible of a writer he was.

I definitely recommend this for any Chesterton fan or for any serious reader that would like to read more of this great author.

I received a copy of this book for free from BookSneeze for review purposes.  A positive review was not required.
