Ecco come Gilbert Keith (G. K.) Chesterton descrive il fortunato personaggio letterario uscito dalla sua penna: La prima caratteristica di Padre Brown è di non avere caratteristiche; la sua importanza, di non apparire importante; e che la sua qualità cospicua quella di non essere cospicuo, e il suo ordinarissimo esterno vuole essere in contrasto con la sua attenzione e la sua intelligenza insospettate. Non è trasandato, ma piuttosto accurato; non è impacciato, ma molto delicato ed accorto; un irlandese sensibile e di spirito pronto, con la profonda ironia e un po' di quella potenziale capacità d'irritarsi propria della sua razza.Il primo romanzo con cui viene alla luce questo personaggio, protagonista di famose serie televisive (una per tutte, si ricorda quella con Renato Rascel), è proprio L'innocenza di Padre Brown, che raccoglie i primi dodici racconti, iniziati nel 1911. Dodici gemme in cui, con la scusa dell'avventura poliziesca o mistery, il piccolo prete cattolico ci regala altrettante gemme di saggezza, buon senso, e carità cristiana.Musiche di Kevin Mac Leod.

    " I enjoyed many of these stories. My favorite was probably "Saradine", because it threw Father Brown in way over his head. Sometimes he's a little too self-assured, so it was nice to see him flail. "

    " Enjoyable collection of mysteries stories with a strong Catholic slant. The first story "The Blue Cross" is one of my all time favorite stories. "

    " A review will come later "

    " a little different that what i usually would consider as a collection of detective stories, this one is about the oddness of humans rather than actual detective work. and it is also about forgiving and finding the inner goodness of each soul. "

    " I expected a mystery book (that's how it was touted) but got a collection of so-so short "mystery" stories. "

    " "The Hammer of God" had an effect on me that few short stories have ever matched. Well done, Chesterton. And WTF. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/6/2010

    " Lots of fun! Father Brown sort of reminds me of a Catholic Matlock; good old fashioned common sense with a dash of "gut feeling". I found there was a definite slant toward the religious, especially when all those lacking in the "proper" faith were killed off, lol! "

    " short stories involving the intrepid Father Brown. Not my favourite, but still interesting. "

About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was born in London. He went on to study art at the Slade School and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind’s spiritual progress. After his conversion to Catholicism in 1922, Chesterton wrote mainly on religious topics such as in Orthodoxy and Heretics. He is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown.
