Editorial Reviews

The late Frank Muller, one of the audio industry's most gifted narrators, sinks his talents into this collection of stories from the iconic playwright and storyteller Oscar Wilde. Muller brings his insightful delivery and spot-on English accents to these classic tales of suspense and intrigue. He knows just the right ingredients to put in this enjoyable concoction. Listeners who enjoy witty banter and hairpin plot twists should warm up their earphones, as Muller proves once again why he was one of the very best.

Publisher's Summary

Whether it's a 300-year-old ghost who's scared out of his wits, a tenderhearted statue with a mission of mercy, or the suave Lord Savile who cannot commit a crime, the characters in these stories by witty Oscar Wilde make the tales priceless delights. Absurd, ironic, poignant, or scathing, these small gems of the storyteller's art are sure to become favorites. This collection, narrated by Frank Muller, includes "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," "The Canterville Ghost," "The Model Millionaire," "The Happy Prince," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Devoted Friend," and "The Remarkable Rocket."

Very Poor Recording

I would read anything by Wilde, but listening to this poor recording was torture.

poor recording quality ruins a great read

Stories are fun, narrator is great, but the poor sound quality ruined it. I'll never read a format 1 again.
