A bout with the flu had me searching for books that were not too taxing on the brain. I also don't like to read twaddle, so what to read that was worth reading? G.K. Chesterton's "Father Brown" stories were a wonderful present from my kind and loving mother. A very different detective than many others in literature, the Catholic priest is privy to the depraved workings of the criminal mind primarily because he is so attuned to the sinful nature of fallen man! He hears confessions and understands that people can indeed fall and fall further away from truth and honesty and justice.The version I read is the annotated edition, edited by Martin Gardner, and the annotations were very interesting, often providing information about locations or historical relevance that I otherwise would have been totally ignorant of.Recommended for great fun! My favorite of the stories is "The Flying Stars".
