    Opening lines: In the cool blue twilight of two steep streets in Camden Town, the shop at the corner, a confectioner's glowed like the butt of a cigar. One should rather say, perhaps, like the butt of a firework, for the light was of many colors and some complexity, broken up by many mirrors and dancing on many gilt and gaily-coloured cakes and sweetmeats.

    Very short, nice introduction to GK Chesterton and Father Brown.

    Three and a half stars. Great plot, but the writing lacked wow-factor for me. However, I am intrigued in reading other Father Brown mysteries as this one showed a glimpse of his brilliance, and I really enjoy the television show based on these stories.

    The Invisible Man, is a short story from book five of the 'The Innocence of Father Brown' saga. The Sherlock Holmesean plot sees the hero of the piece, Angus, on the hunt for a criminal who commits a murder of ma man under the guard of 4 men, none of whom see him and such dub him “The Invisible Man. Angus enlists the help of Flambeau, a thief turned detective and a Roman catholic priest Father Brown to assist in solving the case. It is essentially a locked room mystery which seeming picks up out The Invisible Man, is a short story from book five of the 'The Innocence of Father Brown' saga.

It is essentially a locked room mystery which seeming picks up out of nowhere and is interesting to read. It is easy to see that G.K. Chesterton was greatly inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes however Father Brown is in complete contrast of Sherlock Holmes. This is my first experience of the Edwardian detective stories of Father Brown and I enjoyed the journey and quality of the writing and will have to pick up the others in the series.

    Father Brown provides that people can be mentally invisible as he discovers the murderer in this short story.

    Nope. Not Ralph Ellison nor H.G. Wells. Let's just say the villain went postal.

    Really good book. Listened to the audio book version and it was very interesting and suspenseful. The end was very Holmes-ean.

    It's not that invisible man book, but it's interesting nonetheless

    I wasn’t a fan of the prose or the beginning but the mystery was pretty interesting and I like how it ended. The thesis of this story was interesting to think about now since it’s something today’s society probably wouldn’t have much of an issue with, even if it is something important to think about (we just are more culturally aware).

    The Invisible Man” was the fifth story written by G K Chesterton about his priest/detective Father Brown. Having never before read any of his Father Brown stories, it was mildly entertaining, but probably not an series I would return to... unlike Sherlock Holmes.

    It was an alright audiobook, but I think I needed to reread it without the audiobook.

    I love stories where the facts lie in what you perceive rather than what you actually see for the difference is quite the blade between the ribs.

    This poor rating is just for this one story. Not for the whole collection.

    Hmmmm...It had some good points, speaking about class and appearance. But there wasn't anything particularly special about it.

    I quite enjoyed this short read, smartly written, entertaining and mysterious until the end. Nice twist at the end.

    Such an odd little story. There are parts that I really enjoy, but it's just so weird.
