I have this reaction to much of Chesterton's writing.

I haven't read anything else by him--did you read the Father Brown mysteries?

Yes, I did. I enjoyed them but I guess I secretly hoped for them to be a little more like the old German film versions I grew up with. (They are not great but they are cozy and just right for when you need an old-time movie to cheer you up.)

I also read a collection of essays about rather random things.... I think it was Tremendous Trifles but I need to look it up. The writing was fluent and witty but I could not tell you what the essays were about.
