  • Clever, endlessly clever little mysteries of the old school end of the British Empire sort that unspool in about a dozen pages or less Chesteron isn t as consistently ingenious as Agatha Christie, but he s sure as hell a better prose stylist his beautifully spare descriptions of British geography, often opening the stories, are glorious in their economy a stormy evening of olive and silver was closing in that singular smoky sparkle, at once a confusion and a transparency, which is the strange se [...]


  • A collection of two collections of stories about the famous Father Brown, a creation of Chesterton s inspired by his meeting with an actual Catholic priest Chesterton had expected to show the priest, whom he viewed as cloistered, sheltered, and ignorant of the ways of the world, how much he knew about human nature, only to find that the priest had plumbed the depths of those waters far deeper than he It really makes sense as priests hear confession, they are likely to be the most familiar out o [...]


  • Father Brown mysteries are a charming exercise in multiple plotlines supported by identical events I think in one chapter Father Brown extrapolates four potential stories from a single set of facts, mostly just to prove that he can G.K Chesterton is somewhat dated, but still a fun read or, in my case, a listen yay Librivox The mysteries are mostly of the twilight of the British Empire variety, but with careful observation and focus on general human frailties I found myself smiling about William [...]


  • Father Brown solves mysteries and the way he arrives at his conclusions may put you in mind of Sherlock Holmes I thoroughly enjoyed these stories and was sorry when I had read them all that there were not of them to read G K Chesterton is very readable and hard to put down There are other G K Chesterton short story collections, like The Man Who Knew Too Much , and they are equally pleasurable reads Don t miss this wonderful author


  • Originally two volumes, The Innocence of Father Brown, and the Wisdom of Father Brown, each contain a dozen short mystery stories, each solved by the insightful Father Brown and often his friend Flambeau Father Brown solves his crimes through a careful reasoning based on his spiritual and philosophic insights than scientific details They were fun to read, but not nearly as involved as some other mystery stories.


  • Read through several of the stories and am quite in love Such an adorable, ingenious little priest The stories are all very quick but quite clever, and the prose is very well done, particularly considering it s a mystery novel

  • Very fun to pick up and read when you want a quick mystery fix It has all the improbability of the larger than life Sherlock Holmes, but Father Brown is humble, unimpressive, and caring Chesterton provides much deeper insight into fallen humanity than does Conan Doyle.


  • The Prince of Paradox gives us a sleuth who is just as concerned with apprehending the felon as he is with saving his soul Short, fun, thought provoking stories that make you feel like a grown up child.


  • The Father Brown mysteries are wonderful to read These stories are full of Chesterton s wit and perceptiveness Worth reading and enjoying.
