I love to read and to review. My favourite genres are fantasy, horror, YA, historical, and everything paranormal.

Importance of Being Earnest (Penguin Popular Classics)

The Importance of Being Earnest - Oscar Wilde The first good thing about TIOBE is that it’s short. It’s a play! It’s extremely easy to read, since it’s all just dialogue. I’ve never been able to get through a classic this fast. It doesn’t use many hard words or therms you might not know. TIOBE is extremely accessible for people that would like to give classics a try, but don’t know where to start.I can easily imagine this sort of story being the predecessor of soap series. It has everything: drama, suspense, mistaken identities, romance, cross family members. And all of that infused with a good healthy dose of sarcastic social commentary. Absolutely wonderful. TIOBE kept me entertained for a nice hour or two, and I definitely giggled at some of Wilde’s word plays and insane situations.I highly recommend The Importance of Being Earnest, and hope to read The Picture of Dorian Grey by Wilde soon. If you decide to read it (or if you have read it), let me know! I’d love to talk about this one.
