Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854 – 1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and author of short stories. Known for his barbed wit, he was one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day.

In Wilde’s classic play The Importance of Being Earnest, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff discover the perils of love, assumed identities, and telling the truth. (Summary by Toby Paradis and Wikipedia)

The narrators are very good here. The story is funny. Four stars for Bunbury alone!

Really funny!

(3.5 stars)

This was a really funny book and the voices were great. They did, however, stutter and mess up on their reading quite a bit. Other than that, it was a great book and with great voices! :)

(2 stars)

Readings were fine but flat . Did not like the way they did the narrations.
