Whether it's a 300-year-old ghost who's scared out of his wits, a tenderhearted statue with a mission of mercy, or the suave Lord Savile who cannot commit a crime, the characters in these stories by witty Oscar Wilde make the tales priceless delights.

Very Poor Recording

I would read anything by Wilde, but listening to this poor recording was torture.

poor recording quality ruins a great read

Stories are fun, narrator is great, but the poor sound quality ruined it. I'll never read a format 1 again.

Witty and Poignant in Turns

I've been choosing a fair number of short story collections during the pandemic due to COVID brain. Apparently my COVID brain has been bad enough that I'd forgotten I'd listened to this collection three years ago. It's still a great collection. Funny, spooky, poignant.

Quaint old style moral tales,droll

The performer was excellent, his use of accents and pacing was remarkably good.
Wilde’s stories were old fashioned (no great surprise) and predictable. A good listen if you need something dull before sleeping!
