The Wisdom of Father Brown

Publisher Description

Father Brown is a short, nondescript Catholic Priest with shapeless clothes and a large umbrella who has an uncanny insight into human evil. His methods, unlike those of his near contemporary Sherlock Holmes, although based on observation of details often unnoticed by others, tended to be intuitive rather than deductive. Although clearly devout, he always emphasizes rationality: despite his religiousness and his belief in God and miracles, he manages to see the perfectly ordinary, natural explanation of the problem. He is a devout, educated and "civilized" clergyman, who is totally familiar with contemporary and secular thought and behavior. His character was thought to be based on Father John O'Connor (1870 - 1952), a parish priest in Bradford, Yorkshire.

The Wisdom of Father Brown

You really have to focus and concentrate on each individual mystery. But they get better and better as the book progresses. It is a very good read,

Great collection of stories

This is a great collection of short stories. Father Brown always notices the clue that everyone misses.
