Book Thoughts -- Defiant Joy
I so enjoy G.K Chesterton's writings, so I was thrilled to see this biography, Defiant Joy: The Remarkable Life and Impact of G.K. Chesterton by Kevin Belmonte. It was a solid, good biography, but left me wanting more. I felt I was enticed and had a good general foundation of Mr. Chesterton, and I enjoyed the many excerpts of his writing and what his contemporaries thought of him, but I longed to learn a bit more.
If you are unfamiliar with G.K. Chesterton, I'm sure this book will make you want to read his original writings in full. Even if you are familiar with him, I bet you will want to go back and re-read some of G.K. Chesterton's classics in a new light and appreciation.
I received this book free from Nelson Publishing in exchange for an honest opinion about the book.
