9780141186795: Father Brown Stories (Penguin Modern Classics)

Ian Ker's selection features the very best of G K Chesterton's classic Father Brown mysteries. With unassuming wit and an inspired understanding of human nature, the clerical detective leads the reader through these delightfully puzzling concoctions of mysterious crimes, dubious suspects and ambiguous clues. The dedicated following the tales still have is testament to their enduring quality.

About the Author:

Born in London in 1874, Chesterton was an acclaimed critic, novelist and poet. Much of his best work took the form of articles for periodicals, including his own G.K.'s Weekly. The amiable detective-priest who brought him popularity with a wider public first appeared in THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN (1911). A friend and verbal sparring partner of George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells and Henry James, Chesterton's wit and intelligence shines through his work.

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
