Chesterton, G.K.: The Flying Inn. Nov 17 2007

Hilarious book.

Another one of Chesterton's great fantasies set in an age in which a fundamental Islam leader has been elected to Parliament and through the help of a mad prophet and a weak Government passes legislation resulting in prohibitions against everything. So our hero named Humphrey Hump. (Great name) starts his own “flying inn”—a donkey-cart at first, and later a motor car—laden with rum, a huge round of cheese, and a pub signpost, willfully and wonderfully undermining the new world order, all “politically correct” claptrap, oppressive nitpicking legalisms, and Ivywood’s teetotalitarianism in one uproarious episode after another. Along the way, the two acquire fellow travelers, disturb the damnable “peace,” and make up and boisterously sing songs to amuse themselves (the book is filled to overflowing with some of GKC’s most delightful poetry). The novel eventually concludes with a decisive war between the West—England—and Islam at “the end of the world” (this last phrase is used as a wordplay more than once in the novel).


Enjoy

Roy

P.S. Harry was kind enough to tell me how to post this as a Mobi file. I usually only do Sony reader files so I have no way of knowing if this looks good or even works on the Mobi reader.

Thanks Roy - that's pretty much OK as a Mobi book. Many thanks for producing it.

If you want to see what it'll look like, you can download the free Windows Mobi Desktop Reader from http://www.mobipocket.com.
