The Importance Of Being Earnest
Average rating
4.4 / 5
Funny funny funny
November 22nd, 2015
The many pithy sayings that one gets in Oscar Wilde's main stories just make all of them worth reading. These plays are so short too they can be read quite quickly. Highlight a few quotes on your ereader along the way and you'll be helping every else have a laugh too, if you choose the right ones.

Very clever and entertaining. Such a satire on the English upper class. Oscar Wilde had an incredible ability with the English language.

The Importance of Being Ernest

An interesting and fun read, although a bit confusing near the end. I lost track of who was actually Earnest and who was imaginary but that contributed to the fun! Overall a good time was had by this reader.
