Read full description of the books The Complete Father Brown Volume 2:The eight quaint stories in this book portray Father Brown as an accidental sleuth. The stories remind me of the Miss Marple stories of Agatha Christie. Like Miss Marple, the unassuming Father Brown is an astute observer of human nature with an uncanny ability to deduce the truth of simple conundrums.
Though pleasant to read, the stories are very dated and seem to be of a time and place far removed. And though I can easily dive into historical fiction of all kinds, the stories here are short and never seem to create a compelling and sustained environment.
Read information about the authorGilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was born in London, educated at St. Paul’s, and went to art school at University College London. In 1900, he was asked to contribute a few magazine articles on art criticism, and went on to become one of the most prolific writers of all time. He wrote a hundred books, contributions to 200 more, hundreds of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horse, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including a popular series featuring the priest-detective, Father Brown. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. He wrote over 4000 newspaper essays, including 30 years worth of weekly columns for the Illustrated London News, and 13 years of weekly columns for the Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.’s Weekly.
Chesterton was equally at ease with literary and social criticism, history, politics, economics, philosophy, and theology.
