    1. Merece la pena leerlo,he pasado muy buenos momentos,al ser cuentos cortos se anima uno a leer en otra lengua.Para los que quieren empezar a leer en ingles grado medio


    2. Oscar Wilde wrote beautiful and memorable short stories which should really be part of any course on English literature -- or on world literature. Some are achingly familiar - like The Happy Prince. Some deserve to be much better known. This collection will provide many hours of enjoyment to readers. The stories echo in memory and gently demand to be read aloud to others as well as quietly reread to ourselves.


    3. Marvelous experience to know Oscar Wilde and his fairy tales. Wonderful writer and tragic end to his life. So be


    4. I think these stories are very accesible for the new lectors. I recommend this book to start reading classical literature



    5. As a bibliophile I have enjoyed the "old fashioned" pleasure of reading a bound book. Oscar Wilde is one of many authors whom I enjoy, and having this collection of his short stories easily accessible makes it possible to read and reread these delightful works.
