The Father Brown stories are often compared to the Sherlock Holmes stories and yet, although they are both amateur detectives there are many differences. While Holmes uses inductive logic (although allegedly deducing the solution), Brown focuses on emotions and human behavior. There is also a strong focus on morals, which is unsurprising given the nature of his vocation: that of a catholic priest (also the faith of the author).

These stories are ideal for reading individually, but their often bizarre nature would make them difficult to read as a novel.
