A great book and a great cast

Wish it didn’t end.
Great book great stories. Easy to see why movies were made from them and why they are classics.
There is a new way to experience these stories thanks to BBC Radio (seriously does anyone make a listen come alive like the British?)
Listening allows a person to imagine the characters and scenes. I believe we have great imaginations and can spin a scene to fit our personal perspectives and not be bound to a movie directors vision.

Better every time!

I knew I loved Wild, but I always seem to forget how much till I re-experience it! The voice actors were perfect!

Performances were amazing!

Perfectly acted. Wonderfully put together. The only negatives I can give are I wish the chapers were labeled to the plays performed and the last work not by Oscar Wilde was seriously lacking comparatively and felt like a slightly weak note to end the collection on.

Oscar

Wonderful read. Wished he died a happy man. He deserves much more than what he go. The world missed out on an amazing writer.

Disappointingly bland

L. A. Theatres' production of Wilde's plays is so much better. Many of the performers in this version are merely reading aloud, with little to no expression. They have managed to make Wilde's comedies... entirely unfunny. Very disappointing.

Oscar Wilde BBC radio dramatization

I really was expecting this to be better than it was. It was enjoyable. A little disappointing. I guess I expected too much from the cast.
If you love Oscar Wilde You should enjoy this.

Brilliant and delightful

The plays of Oscar Wilde are filled with sharp irony. Clever word games that turn ordinary expressions around, providing a mirror to the "Edwardians" (at that time and their contemporary equivalents). I loved them!

De profundis is technically a letter but actually is a mini biography. It is a beautifully composed reflection, introspect analysis of Oscar's situation and his relationship with Bosie.

The letters are interesting and I find it easier to listening to them instead of reading them.

If you like good hear plays or love Oscar Wild's stories, a must have.

I have no words...

By far one of the best dramatizations,well when you have actors like Michael Sheen and Judy Dench,what can you expect?Oscar Wilde's works are timeless,at times unnerving with its accurate sense of practicality but at the same time they have the beauty and dreaminess of a poem.
I can't begin to describe Oscar Wilde's works-it's not in my power.
But the exquisite and inexpressible feelings I get-the thoughts-his thoughts which I know in my heart are true -though the power,the intuition to decide that are encouraged by his works-at this point I don't even know what I am saying.
And,finally the last piece when the lady asks us that wasn't it a triumph-that struck hard!!!
I am overwhelmed and thankyou Audible and BBC for such a beautiful dramatization with such beautiful soundtracks.
Looking forward to listening more of these!
