Chesterton's writing is full of wit and clever wordplay, making each story a joy to read. The characters are eccentric and memorable, and the resolutions to the mysteries are always surprising and satisfying.

Subject: Reader is good, stories not so much
The first story was entertaining and interesting. The others not so much. Look up reviews on the stories elsewhere before investing your time to make sure it seems like something you would enjoy. Reader was really solid!

Subject: Love It!
The reader for this book does an incredible job! Great British accent, but easy to understand and slow enough to catch what's going on. Love Chesterton's writing, which reminds me of a cross between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Lemony Snicket!
