Chapter 13: The Pursuit of the President August 24, 2007

Posted by Ashleigh in The Man Who Was Thursday by GK Chesterton.

1. Were you able to suspend your disbelief in this chapter? Or did Chesterton venture too far into the absurd with the chase through the streets of London involving elephants, odd note throwing, and a hot air balloon?

2. What did you think when you learned that Sunday was “the man in the dark room”? Why do you think Sunday started this chain of events?

3. What do you think of the quote: “Nature was always making quite mysterious jokes.”

4. Other thoughts?

1. I’ve been enjoying the ride this story is taking me on. It doesn’t bother me at all that it’s not plausible.

2. I wasn’t surprised in the least. ha ha. But I can’t even being to understand why he might have gathered this group of men together. What could his motive be?

1. Yeah, I was able to suspend my disbelief in this chapter. Somehow, it seemed to work, as weird as it was. The note throwing was particularly strange.

2. I wasn’t surprised by this revelation. However, like Michelle, I’m completely baffled as to why Sunday orchestrated all of this.
