This book contains 8 short stories: Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, The Canterville Ghost, The Model Millionaire, The Young King, The Fisherman and His Soul, The Portrait of Mr W.H, (and 2 stories for children:) The Happy Prince, and The Devoted Friend.
I always like the style of Wilde's writing. His is not so hard to read and the language is beautiful, you can quote so many.
