This volume is a collection of four books which I shall review separately.
Book One: The Innocence of Fr. Brown. The little priest is a whiz-bang analyzer and reaches conclusions far in advance of those with him. The curious, and disconcerting, aspect of these stories is the ubiquitousness of Fr. Brown. He turns up in the most unusual places in a most timely manner. It is entertaining but can become boring.

These are all clever tales. Usually the plot concerns an event in which some terrible crime has been committed, but Fr Brown finds a simpler and less violent thing had actually happened. ( )

Chestertonove detektívne poviedky môžeme smelo zaradiť k najlepším dielam klasickej detektívky a najmä k románom sira Arthura Conana Doyla. Nenápadný, ošumelý, postavou ťarbavý, na prvý pohľad naivný, ba až smiešny katolícky kňaz postupne rozuzlí navonok neriešiteľné kriminálne prípady a svojím racionalizmom a dôsledne logickým myšlienkovým postupom prekvapuje aj najskúsenejších profesionálnych detektívov. Na rozdiel od Sherlocka Holmesa, ktorý pri práci používa aj vedecké metódy, otec Brown dedukuje svoje závery pri odhaľovaní zločinu či zdanlivo nevysvetliteľnej „nadprirodzenej“ situácie na základe dokonalej znalosti ľudskej povahy a psychológie.

this wasn't as good as i remembered it being. i had to resort to listening to it as an audio book to get through it and the weird inconsistencies in morals between the narrator and father brown and sometimes father brown and himself were just very :/ to me. i had a half hour left on the audio book but i'm not gunna bother to finish it.

Entertaining, at times a bit formulaic. Like all crime and mysteries series', at the heart is an interesting, unforgettable protagonist. Father Brown is an anti-Sherlock, unprepossessing, a small man with a moon-like face and a big black knobby umbrella. At almost all times polite, at all times humane. Reading all the stories back to back, one senses some development from one collection to the next. The earliest stories are marred by a reflexive anti-protestantism, against both Church of England and Dissenting groups. Those in succeeding collections are more tolerant. Recurring throughout however is a trace of xenophobia; Chesterton's references to blacks, while not as virulent of those of his contemporary Thomas Wolfe, are unacceptable today, his references to Jews are nearly as bad. Balanced against this are the pleasures of Chesterton's habitual turn to paradox and view of life both comic and moral (without being priggish). The perfect companion for my weekly commutes to this city this semester. ( )

Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Harwich and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous - nor wished to be.

This omnibus "work" contains ALL of the 51 short stories originally published as The Innocence of FB (12 stories), The Wisdom of FB (12 stories), The Incredulity of FB (8 stories), The Secret of FB (10 stories) and The Scandal of FB (originally 8, later 9 stories). Please note that this "complete" omnibus is NOT the same as the "complete" omnibus edition containing 2 additional FB stories (for a total of 53 stories) so please DO NOT combine it with that one or any other common omnibus editions of FB short stories that contain less than 51.
* This omnibus "work" contains ALL of the 53 short stories in the Father Brown canon; including all 51 the stories from: 'The Innocence of Father Brown', 'The Wisdom of Father Brown', 'The Incredulity of Father Brown', 'The Secret of Father Brown', 'The Scandal of Father Brown', plus the two additional stories 'Father Brown and The Donnington Affair' and 'The Mask of Midas' - Please DO NOT combine it with that one or any other common omnibus editions of FB short stories that contain less than the full complement of 53 stories.
This omnibus "work" contains ALL of the 50 short stories originally published in the first five individual collections of Father Brown stories issued between 1911 and 1935. Note that the fifth "Scandal of" collection was originally published in 1935 with only 8 stories; The Vampire of the Village short story wasn't initially published until 1936 so it was only added as a ninth story to later editions of the "Scandal of" collection. However, "complete" omnibus editions of the FB canon did not include that story until many years after it had been added to "Scandal of". Hence this "complete" omnibus is a DIFFERENT work to later "complete" omnibus editions containing 51 or 53 short stories. Additionally, the UK "complete" omnibus edition did NOT count the "framing" text at the beginning and end of the "Secret of" collection as actual stories while the comparable US edition did, so 48 complete stories in UK eds. = 50 complete stories in US eds.
This omnibus "work" contains ALL of the 53 short stories in the Father Brown canon; the 51 stories originally published as The Innocence of FB (12 stories), The Wisdom of FB (12 stories), The Incredulity of FB (8 stories), The Secret of FB (10 stories) and The Scandal of FB (originally 8, later 9 stories) plus The Donnington Affair (1914) and The Mask of Midas (1936) that normally are not included in other "complete" omnibus editions. Please DO NOT combine it with that one or any other common omnibus editions of FB short stories that contain less than the full complement of 53 stories.
