Brought to life here by actor Kevin O'Brien in a series of dramatic readings, this unabridged audio book of The Innocence of Father Brown also features an introduction and conclusion to each chapter by Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society and host of EWTN's immensely popular television series, G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense. First published in 1910, The Innocence of Father Brown includes many of the greatest Father Brown stories, including The Blue Cross, The Flying Stars, and The Hammer of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Innocence of Father Brown: A Dramatic Reading by Kevin O'brien?
Excellent production BUT . . . Jun 23, 2009
I ordered this as a birthday present for my daughter and she loves it, but in listening to the cd's, she noticed that the 8th cd contains the same story as the 10th cd even though it has a different title. Of course, by the time she discovered this, the window of opportunity for returning the set for a replacement had passed. this site's customer service says to contact the manufacturer for defective items, but the manufacturer says to get your replacement from this site since that was where the item was purchased initially. So, buy the set, just make sure you listen to it in good time to get a replacement in case it's faulty!!!!!
