Publisher's Summary

Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself...

Here you will find the complete Father Brown stories in the chronological order of their original publication.

Father Brown in any form is a treat

Father Brown is as charming here as he is anywhere. A wonderful rendition of much told mysteries makes them feel new again. Worth the time and money!

Good but not Great

While GKC is deserving of many accolades, writing not the least, writing murder mysteries are not that which elevates him above the common and on occasion, juvenile and even vulgar. AC Doyle sets the standard, peaks the interest, holds the attention, and leaves the reader desiring more.

Woeful

I liked the tv series so thought this would be the same.
Wrong.
The narrator has a monotone voice so all the participants sounded as Sean Connery or Micheal Cane were narrating.
May be just me, I found the whole of part 1 hard to follow, so the rest will not get a listen or mention.

Audible re do this!

Had major problems with this book. Downloaded first time, it was slow. When tried to listen a little alert came up stating it was unable to run it. So deleted and tried again, second time it stopped about ten minutes into first story! Read tales some years back and was looking forward to listening to them. No wonder it was so cheap! Not sure why its so bad running/downloading. The narrator was dire. what i heard of it too.. Avoid if I were you. sending it back

Monotonous narration

The stories might be ok, but it drags and you miss some of the story because you stop listening at times...feels so uninteresting due to the narrator not being up to scratch. Overall, downloaded 41 hours and listened to only 3 hours worth, one to avoid unless you only listen to one chapter every so often

Dow.oad

This title would not download onto my iPad. It was fine on my computer and iPhone, but when completed on the iPad a box appears telling me that the file was corrupted, please try again! This has not happened with any other Audiobook I have purchased.
