    " I read about 10 of the 49 stories and found them entertaining with rich vocabulary and expression. I did tire of the formula and decided I was not missing too much by not finishing them all. "

    " Very cool collection of old-school detective stories from master-author G.K. Chesterton. "

    " Surely Father Brown must be the most endearing character in detective fiction! "

    " I'm unsure if to rate this as a three or four.
    I'm finding the reading tedious but I clearly remember when I read this in Spanish it was truly really enjoyable. Not sure if it's the dense old English or what.
    I know I like the stories, that much I'm sure about.

    " There were too many stories to count in this. I did get a bit tired of the mental gymnastics of trying to solve mystery after mystery. On the other hand, I love the anti-here, dumpy umbrellas toting Roman Catholic priest based in England. Some of the stories are surprisingly bloodthirsty, too. "

    " A very Strange and smart kind of detective stories "

    Father Brown was also made into a tv-series, the author I imagine being extremely fat Dickens-stuntman. "

    " Just good fun! No one weaves a mystery like Chesterton. "

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.
