    Wilde always has been the master of silly. Quite enjoyable.
  • Interesting but not too inspiring

    Read the book because I've heard many people talk about it. It's well written and told a good story within 100 pages. I do like how Jack and Algernon are characterized. They are different in values but surprisingly similar in attitudes towards love. Brave and honest mostly. Both characters are charming. It revealed some of the ironic side of that time.
  • Amazing!!!

  • On the importance of being timeless

    By Gabarbosa
    In a world that has traded intelligence for speed, Wilde is a safe harbour for those seeking the dry wits of humour in its true form: subliminar, indirect, sinuous. Every sentence is a pearl of sarcasm that mocks of human behavior at its core. Thats what makes it unquestionably a timeless read.
  • Masterpiece

    By Gkogstkknfebbsarjkodqegb
    This book was amazing, but I can't help compare it to The Picture of Dorian Grey as they both have similar themes and when I compare it to Dorian Grey, it doesn't hold up. I think this book is great for all readers. I am eleven and I enjoyed it very much. Though, I did need a dictionary nearby.

    Great to revisit this play. Oscar Wilde wrote at a time when life was so different from today - when the 1% had a manservant and governesses and manners ruled behavior. And he lampoons that time. For me it was thoroughly enjoyable.

    Written in modern English, each of the main characters was humorously depicted by the author.
