The play is funny. The recording is terrible. It sounds like each part was recorded by the actor and then they were stitched together. The volume and timbre changes with each character
My first Oscar Wilde book and this was absolutely genius with the right dash of sarcasm and humour
I love this play and have read it/seen it numerous times, but I couldn’t get past the opening scene in this narration.
Didn’t like narration
Story was clever enough, but needed readers with a better sense of timing and inflection to do it justice. Since this is a play, everything depends on the dialogue.
good story love the twist
The book is hilarious of course. But, I do think the actors did not do it justice. Particularly the aunt and the two girls. The male actors were fine, and the servants were great.
Audio quality is so awful
Don’t bother … there are separate recordings- sounds awful
A play I have known and seen many times completely ruined by the dreadful narration. That and the fact that for some reason none of the books will pay right through. I doubt I will bother listening to any more
was a good book and a good listen.
silly story, ridiculous - i admit i laughed aloud a few times, light entertainment. Acting volunteers did an excellent job!
I love the wit. voice actors are excellent
Individually, the narrators are fine. It's the way it recorded and stitched together. Terrible. Couldn't do it.
it was less if a book and more of a playwright. some of the voices had really bad mics but it was still a fun story with a good twist at the end.
Awful. Couldn’t listen to it, so terrible.
I stopped listening as soon as I realized it was a play. Im not a fan of listening to plays but if you are, you might give it a try
the book could not keep my attention
Too much accents, exaggerated drama and range in volume. The play seemed alright and I would listen to it with a more humorous narrator.
not a book I felt moved to finish.
The play itself is delightful. This recording, however, is very uneven in both volume and performance level.
verry funny. a lesson in being honesty.
Really funny play. Narration was with good effort but doesn’t sound like a professional recording
Some of the narrators were horrid.
Not the greatest recording quality, but definitely a great story! Sure keeps you company on long drives.
Not the best recording but the play is great. funny.
One of my favourite audio books. Listened to it many times. All roles are narrated very well and very funny. Couldn't help laughing and mimicking the characters as I listen!
Very entertaining and witty, one of my favorite plays.
The male narrators were very good but the female narrators were unbearable to listen to, especially the women reading Cicily. I couldn't even make it all the way through. She sounded like a robot.
