Four Agatha Christie Novels

And not a one of them interesting. I’m not even going to bother to name and link them; if you care what they were you can find them down near the bottom of the list to the left. I also read Lord Emsworth and Others by PG Wodehouse. It, as the title suggests, is a collection of short stories about Lord Emsworth and other characters. There are a couple Ukridge stories, a couple from the Drones Club, but the heart of the book is several of Wodehouse’s delightful golf stories as related by The Oldest Member. I also finished off the first of the Father Brown books by GK Chesterton, The Innocence of Father Brown. All of the Father Brown mysteries were short stories rather than full length novels and as such they are quite good. The mystery aspect of most of them is rather lacking, but the character of Father Brown and the way in which he goes about his business is quite charming. I am somewhat displeased at how frequently Father Brown allows the culprit to escape, but I can overlook this since the stories themselves are so much fun and because Father Brown is such a pious man; he is more concerned with the eternal consequences of actions than the temporal ones.
