Witty. This is a light read laced with humor. You'll enjoy it!

I won't write of the play itself which I think is worth having and reading. Instead, a few words on this edition.

You cannot beat it on price. Though sturdy, the book is bare bones. No introductions. No cast of characters. I even noticed a few typos. At least once, a speech is attributed to the wrong character. Were I buying this play in bulk for a performance or a reading, I'd buy this edition. For my library, I'd be less inclined.

If you take this book at face value it is a light, enjoyable read. This book is so much more. Some parts i disagree with but it is interesting to see how some views on men and women have changed and how some stayed the same. I really enjoyed this book.

I received the used cassette in good condition, and could listen to the full story without problems. It was entertaining, and it's a classic but doesn't leave you with anything of value. Not something I would pass down to my kids. A one time experience only, which means I might sell it myself on amazon.com :-)

I've just started re-reading this play and I think it is one of the most beautiful works Wilde ever wrote. Mrs. Arbuthnot's speech at the end of Act Four, beginning "men don't know what mothers are" is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever read in Wilde. It's a very ironic speech, considering it was written by a man, but it shows what a wonderful insight into women Wilde had. The play is essentially about morality and the conflict between a person's own, private sense of morality and the moral values imposed on us by society. Ultimately, Mrs. Arbuthnot is the character who most deserves our respect, precisely because she refuses to buy into the moral values of those around her. Reading it, I can just imagine how it would be performed, I even find myself acting the play out in my head, such is the power and force of Wilde's dialogue. This is a truly beautiful work which I highly recommend
Great audio book! I listened to it three times. Powerful story of regret, pride and coming to terms with lost love.
