Review: Manalive

User Review  - Mallory Smyth - Goodreads

THIS SHOULD BE EVERYONES LIFE MANTRA!!! Best fiction book I read all summer. It is laugh out loud ridiculous and Innocent Smith is the perfect example of what most of us give up at a major price as we grow up. Everyone read this book and live by it Read full review

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

I have struggled with Chesterton's fiction before, but this was a delightful, fun, and thought-provoking read. It is especially good read aloud on the sofa, beach, or even Skype. Read full review
