All Things Considered

Gelesen von Ray Clare

(4,634 Sterne; 41 Bewertungen)

Another delightful and sharply pointed excursion into the topics of the day, and of this day as well, with Gilbert Keith Chesterton. These reprinted magazine articles are filled with his good natured wit, his masterful use of paradox, and devastating ability to use reductio ad absurdum to destroy the popular myths that drive a society driving full-speed into secular humanism. You will come away with a whole new collection of wonderful quotes. - Ray Clare (6 hr 39 min)

the wit and a acerbity of GKC, the taste of Mr. Clare (dedicated volunteer even with an audible cold in the first pieces)3--bravo!

Stumbled upon a Double Treasure!

(5 Sterne)

I do not always appreciate the quizzical algorithms that lead me to juggling cats on YouTube, but Librivox helps me to discover such GEMS! "All Things Considered" has my current record for the most bookmarks in a single work. His work is spot on for these days (June 2020) and i have marked several quotable quotes. Mr. Clark is the perfect reader. His delivery is even, but not monotone. it's as though the author himself is speaking to you in his parlor. (and i just found there are more!!) (6/2019)

another great book by gk Chesterton

(4,5 Sterne)

This author did not consider how raycyst he is. This problematic work of phologocentric imperialism must shunned along with the problematic works of Frederick Douglaas and Abraham Lincoln who are now acknowledged to be vile cultural imperialists.
