    "CRT did it again!!"

    This is Colonial Radio Theater's 2nd volume of Fr Brown Mysteries and it is wonderful.The stories are true to Chesterton. JT Turner is a great Fr Brown. The voices, music and effects are excellent. Thanks CRT!

    "Stick with Unabridged; Avoid Radio Dramatization"

    Exceptionally poor rendition of Chesterton's wonderful Father Brown mysteries. Radio time constraints doom the stories to near incoherence; casting renders multiple characters confusing. There is nothing here but plot, poorly presented and stripped of everything that makes a plot worth following ~ no character development, no pacing, no background, no scene-setting.

    Aside from the charming cover art, there is nothing here to warrant a purchase or a credit. And the cover art is not THAT good.
