It wasn't for me personally, and I was hoping to get something to make my younger sister read more classic literature. I have been trying to get her to read Dorian Gray for a while and now she finally will!

It was smaller than I expected, but thats fine :)

I love Oscar Wilde for just being himself and writing because he loves it. This book has got all his witty charm pinned down on its pages. Enjoy.

This is quite a short book but a 'must have' for any serious Oscar Wilde enthusiast. OW was a highly intelligent and quick witted person and this comes through in his writings and quotations. He is apparently the most quoted writer after Shakespear. I'm not totally an Oscar Wilde fan because unfortunately his wisdom doesn't seem to have extended itself into his personal life and behaviour. Nevertheless a great, if somewhat brief read, and you'll come to understand the sense of paradox he so frequently applied to his speakings and writings.

A super little book full of amusing and provocative quotes from one of the masters of the one liner. If you likeOscar you'll like this.

This collection of Oscar Wilde’s witticisms and one-liners is a pleasure to read, because the noted wit was always entertaining wherever he went, whatever he said and whoever he was speaking to. That’s part of what contributed to his notoriety, both in his day and through his legacy. I’d recommend reading a collection of Oscar Wilde quotes if you ever get the chance, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be this one. If you read it, let me know what you think!

Nice little book. It is nice that the quotes are split up into different sections. Oscar Wilde was an incredibly intelligent man so a book of his quotations is always a good thing to have!

I have always been a great fan of Oscar Wilde's and his witticisms are humorous and unexpected spread about his plays. Perhaps we know them well and perhaps too well. Concentrated in one volume you feel they could be written by a computer to a programmed formula.
