The Innocence of Father Brown

G. K. Chesterton has a new convert. What a great batch of short stories about the timid yet astute Father Brown and criminal-turned-detective Flambeau! Bravo.

Wonderful, but much too short!

My introduction to Father Brown came from the wonderfully entertaining television adaptation of the character with stories based loosely on the originals. Now that I've read these originals, I can more fully enjoy the tv series. My only complaint with Chesterton's tales are that they are far too short to more fully develop for us the character of Father Brown. Is the somewhat vague background of the tv version true to the original? Where did he come from, how old is he? Does he have family? What in his background prepared him to be so adept at solving these mysteries? Maybe these questions are answered in the stories contains in future volumes.

The Innocense of Father Brown

Interesting, intriguing, funny and very smart. Enjoyed reading just before sleeping knowing the had A beginning and and ending. A new story to look forward to each and every night. I shall certainly be looking up the author and reading some more of his work. I did see some other titles. One gave the date published 1939. If that is correct I'm fearful he would not be either no longer be in this realm, or he could just old. As a Indiscriminate reader, i will read anything so did not look to see the date of this book of captivating stories. Linda Connally
