The Honor of Israel Gow - G.K. Chesterton This is a short story featuring Chesterton's Father Brown. I've tried reading Father Brown mysteries a few times, and for some reason, I just don't feel them! The writing is very nice, and Chesterton sets tone and scene quite well. Yet, these stories just don't hook me. The Honor of Israel Gow was just background noise to me, and not once was I pulled into the story. While I can't seem to get on board with Father Brown, I can appreciate Chesterton's way with words, so this gets two stars from me.
