Anne Hathaway is just marvelous! Listened with my grandchildren but I loved it as much as they did! I had forgotten some of the parts that were not included in the movie.

The Importance of Being Earnest is a play written by the renowned playwright and author, Oscar Wilde. It premiered in London on Valentines Day, 1895, and was an instant success. With The Importance of Being Earnest, Wilde accomplished what he'd set out to do, which was to make light of the humorous behavior of British high society.

This was a great narrator for a ridiculously silly story. I did not love it but I did want to finish.

This work is a passionate call for this generation to make their lives count for eternity. John Piper acknowledges that the risks for those who seek to accomplish something in life - risks in relationships for the sake of righteousness and authenticity, risks with money for the cause of the Gospel, and risks in witnessing to the truth and beauty of Christ. Readers will find their passion for the cross of Christ enlarged as a result of listening to this title.

Wanted to "get" this book, but found it very difficult intellectually. I did take away life application section, at the end.

The language, the people, the emotions, the story, the causes and the setting were all exquisitely pieced together. Foreign in so many aspects, yet familiar. So very memorable.

Some wonderful moments...making your mess you message and everybody's got something, and can never have enough gratitude. Too much repetition though, and too much of all the names.
