Nope...

I can't read Chesterton... his style is so... Oxfordian.

I've not read a single book of his... and only excerpts of a couple essays. But I love his quotes... and that's got to count for something.

I read his "The Everlasting Man" a long time ago. I very much like the way he writes.

I've read it. It's very good, like everything Chesterton wrote. I was struck by the number of times he pretty much described what would happen and has happened.

WWWTW is also available around the net as a text download, if you're interested in that format.

I've only read his On Conversion story - It was good, I can see why he was called the "apostle of common sense."

Oh yes, Chesterton is definitely worth the time to read.
