Lord Arthur Saviles's Crime is a masterpiece of polished cynicism, in which poison, explosive clocks, and finally murder forerun married bliss.
Each of the eight stories here were published in the heyday of Wilde's career, between 1887 and 1891.

The story teller creates vividly the different worlds of the book.Oscar Wild never really took time to give the story the moving endings you would expect.
The end of the story
The narrator was splendid. With every story I began to listen with big expectations and was never let down
Most of them are already made into movies. But if I remember right they all had a slightly different ending....
Never the less, I love Oscar Wild. But in the future I will only select his theatre pieces, Dorian Gray and Profundus.
"Funny and touching"
Great narration by a great actor. Old tales that could have been written today. I'll definitely be listening to these tales again.
Derek Jacobi reading classic stories by Oscar Wilde, it doesn't get much better than that!
