9780140624007: Father Brown Stories

Immortalized in these famous stories, G. K. Chesterton's endearing amateur sleuth has entertained countless generations of readers. For, as his admirers know, Father Brown's cherubic face and unworldly simplicity, his glasses and his huge umbrella, disguise a quite uncanny understanding of the criminal mind at work. This edition includes seven tales from a number of G. K. Chesterton's 'Father Brown' books.

About the Author:

G. K. Chesterton was born in 1874 and educated at St Paul's School, where, despite his efforts to achieve honourable oblivion at the bottom of his class, he was singled out as boy with distinct literary promise. Probably his most famous stories arethose of 'Father Brown', but he wrote about every conceivable subject under the sun. He died in 1936.

From AudioFile:

The quiet, inconspicuous Roman Catholic priest, Father Brown, serves souls and, on the side, solves mysteries. Flo Gibson reads twelve stories of bizarre murders and strange mysteries, which Father Brown ably solves. Gibson's unique and somewhat raspy alto voice enables her to read each of the male characters convincingly. Frequently, the characters speak with French accents, which Gibson delivers with expertise and realism. She narrates in an American-sounding English; her British accent also sounds authentic. Gibson uses a variety of emotional responses, which heighten the appeal of the stories and the enjoyment of the listener. P.A.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
