A Wonderful Narration

Father Brown is a short, stumpy Catholic priest that has a unique insight into human evil. With his baggy clothes and trusty umbrella, he solves mysteries as an amateur detective. This is a collection of his stories, and fans of the Sherlock Holmes stories and of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will also be fans of Father Brown, as there are many similarities between the two Holmes and Brown: both are extremely intelligent, have a knack for noticing small details that others don’t, and are adept at solving intellectual puzzles.

While those who are great fans of mystery and detective stories will love following Father Brown’s adventures, at times, the stories can become quite repetitive. Chesterton emphasizes many of the same Christian themes in his stories, and many of the plotlines are the same. Chesterton does a lot in his stories to emphasize the practicality of Christianity in his stories, which fits for the period that they were written in.

The complex crimes and equally complex solutions will have readers continuing to return to Father Browns’ universe; and even though you may expect that a twist is coming, Chesterton is somehow always able to manage to surprise his readers, in one way or another. And last but not least the wonderful voice of Alastair Cameron was a perfect fit to this novel. His perfectly modulated voice makes a good novel a great listen!

Story and TV presentation

The stories provide an excellent opportunity to understand Father Brown’s intuition, but the character comes to life in the TV series more easily.

annoying narration

I listened to the singsong narration for about 15 minutes before giving up and returning this book for a different recording. Personally I couldn't imagine listening to this voice for 8 and a half hours.
