  • Oscar Wilde has to be among few writers who can keep you smiling, thinking, wondering, entertained and amazed at the same time. The book starts with the title story which is funny in being outrageously silly while boasting a rich text. Each story is original and shows off Wilde's great hand in creating interesting and round characters. The last story is on a whole different level It must be said. How about Cyril Graham's theory that managed to convert me as well. All in all this is as good as a collection of short stories could get. 5/5.
