Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Father Brown is a direct challenge to the conventional detective and in many ways he is more amusing and ingenious.” Saturday Review
“Chesterton’s stories of Father Brown, a self-effacing priest who applies his brilliant mind to solving mysteries, are often implausible, melodramatic, and dated. Still, they entertain, and David Timson reads the first six here with loving care. He gives Brown a mild voice, but likable and not weak, and provides other character voices without strain or caricature, including accents. (His American is very good.) His warm, rich, naturally expressive voice not only conveys meaning and emotion but also brings an overall tone of amusement to the stories, letting us know how to take them—this is voice as interpretation…Timson gets the tone just right.” AudioFile

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) published numerous works which include compilations of his voluminous journalism, novels, biographies, histories, criticism, Christian apologetics, poetry, and plays. Many of his novels have the genuine marks of genius. His books on Dickens (for whom he had a considerable affinity) and Saint Thomas Aquinas are considered classics in their fields.
