Reviews

(5 stars)

I enjoyed the reader who spoke clearly and economically which made each chapter easy to listen to. As to Orthodoxy, I wish I had had the brains earlier in life to understand and digest this book! As to now, I'm looking forward to a second listening to catch the half I missed. Chesterton's thoughts and arguments and reasoning is an over-the-top bountiful banquet, that left me chewing and satisfied at the same time.

Wonderful recording, wonderful reader, and wonderful book!

(5 stars)

excellent, but I'll need to comeback and re listen.

(4 stars)

I'll need to return to this title and listen again. I've heard of G. K. Chesterton and now I understand why he was so influential. unfortunately I feel I've only barely understood the general concepts and heard a few of the very highlightable moments. not truly understood the depth of thoughts given in this book.

a worthy read

(5 stars)

G.K. Chesterton has been quoted so much and for good reason. He words ideas in unexpected ways, making people think. while I don't agree on every point he makes in Otrthodoxy, there were so many great points that I will have to get a copy of the book to go back and reread.

One of the best books I have ever listened to!

(5 stars)

If you are honestly seeking truth GK Chesterton shares the events of his life as God Glorifying poetry.

Deep thoughts ahead

(4.5 stars)

Well read, and well written. A philosophical journey which will make you think, and then need to re-listen to make sure you didn't miss anything

Great narration

(5 stars)

The narrator captures Chesterton style of writing perfectly. When I recall Chesterton lines from Orthodoxy, I can't help but hear Carter's voice.

(5 stars)

Excellent reader. This book (along with Heretics) is just as potent today as it must've been when it was published, if not more so.
