Publisher's Summary

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.

Hmmmm

What did you like best about Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories? What did you like least?

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.

What was most disappointing about Oscar Wilde’s story?

The end of the story

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was splendid. With every story I began to listen with big expectations and was never let down

Could you see Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Most of them are already made into movies. But if I remember right they all had a slightly different ending....

Any additional comments?

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.

wonderfully entertaining

Derek Jacobi reading classic stories by Oscar Wilde, it doesn't get much better than that!
