Father Brown: The Essential Tales

Chesterton, G.K. Father Brown: The Essential Tales. New York: Random House, 2005.

I love mystery stories.  I have gone through phases where I read every Sherlock Holmes story, every Agatha Christie story, etc. etc.  Mysteries are just fun, and it's amazing to me how these stories can stand the test of time.  GK Chesterton's Father Brown stories are no exception.  I thoroughly enjoyed the short stories in this collection, and I am looking forward to finding another Father Brown book during my next library trip.

More like Hercule' Poirot or Miss Marple, would you say?

Poirot. Definitely Poirot, but without the mustaches.
