Product Description

About the Author

Known for his barbed wit, Oscar Wilde was one of the most successful late-Victorian playwrights and a great celebrity. The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray are among his best known works. He is perhaps most famous for his trial, in which he eloquently defended homosexual love and was sentenced to two years of hard labor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Irony 16 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I think the great man himself would agree that there is more than a little irony in this being the only review about this book, called 'Reviews'

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting if you like 19th-century literature 17 April 2013
By Lenore
Format:Kindle Edition
Wilde's reviews do not make light reading. There are occasional witticisms but unless you have read the books he is talking about, his review will not make much sense. Wilde is a hero today because he is regarded as a "gay" martyr. It should never be forgotten that he was actually a pederast, and he inflicted great misery and cruelty on his wife through his betrayal of her. In fact, he can be thought to have caused her death. Being homosexual did not bring him happiness - he was at the mercy of the thoroughly unpleasant Lord Alfred Douglas. It must be said that his reviews are probably better than his rather dreadful poems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oscar Himself Writing Reviews - Who Could Resist? 2 April 2015
By Florizel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is exactly what is implied by the title: a collection of reviews. It is not "some sort of novel," as another reviewer wrote. So, if you like Wilde and are interested in his occasional writing, you might very well enjoy this collection, free on Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't really judge this 3 May 2013
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off this book is free. So the only thing it really wasted was my time. I expected a book of reviews. Like the passage I'm writing right now. I didn't really care what they were about, I just like hearing people's opinions. What this really is is a story. Some sort of novel. I dot really understand what it's about, and what I read was very uninteresting so I have to give it a 1/5.

Pros
Free
Looks like a decent novel (to the right person, certainly not me)

Cons
Not clearly label as a novel/story not a collection of opinions
What I read was uninteresting (someone else might like like it)
