Man Alive!

by Barahir on Apr 3, 2007

Manalive is the quirky and wild tale of a man who really is alive. The story of which comes out at his trial as a burglar, runaway and a polygamist. It takes living life to the fullest to the next step. Innocent Smith is the giant of a man on trial when he comes to an inn and interrupts the regular and, it was stated as a, insanely boring lifestyle of the patrons living there. Provoking picnics on rooftops and wooing the shy and quiet girl. When an two detectives arrive to arrest him. The patrons demand a trial for his defense and so the story begins. Not Chesterton's best but truly a wonderful story that draws you into the world of what Chesterton's life must have been like. Mostly dialog and recounting of stories filled with his personal philosophies, it would be tiresome if his philosophies were not so very exiting.
