One of the most famous characters in detective fiction is the priest-sleuth Father Brown, created by G.K. Chesterton in his collection The Innocence of Father Brown in 1911. In The Invisible Man, a murderer manages to get in and out of a house, even though it is under constant observation. In some ways, the story parallels Poe's The Purloined Letter but adds its own unique touches, particularly in the character and methods of Father Brown. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I think I liked it, but... wtf? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 4/29/2011

    " Curious mystery turns into an allegory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micha | 4/27/2011

    " A fun romp full of anarchists and private police and Chesterton's sometimes-predictable but other times totally laughingly-absurd humour. The plot follows exactly the kind of course I sometimes wish my life would. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zvi | 4/23/2011

    " Peculiar, funny, and unexpectedly allegorical. The central conceit of the book (infiltrating the anarchist council) is engaging and the prose aphoristic, but the metaphysical ending left me cold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 4/6/2011

    " Weird, and left me thinking. Someone else please read this so I can talk to someone about it.

    " There is a reason it is called a nightmare - the confusion could only be justified as a dream. It does get one thinking about anarchy and government. "

    " awesome. just awesome.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 3/25/2011

    " Entertaining and goofy in an English sort of way. I liked it. The twist at the end wasn't as interesting as it could have been. Slightly disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 3/20/2011

    " Amazing story of political extremity "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 3/13/2011

    " Well done but a bit dated. I was also put off by the religious aspect of the ending.

    My first e-book! (a free one) "

About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) published numerous works which include compilations of his voluminous journalism, novels, biographies, histories, criticism, Christian apologetics, poetry, and plays. Many of his novels have the genuine marks of genius. His books on Dickens (for whom he had a considerable affinity) and Saint Thomas Aquinas are considered classics in their fields.
