"I pity any poor married woman whose husband is not called Ernest."

How could I not give this 5 stars? :-)

I had read Importance of Being Earnest before, but it was the first time I'd read the rest of them (although I didn't read Salome). They were fun and humorous, and I appreciated the forward that explained some of the historical context so I could understand the satire better. They were somewhat repetitive and predictable, and because they were short plays rather than novels they were simple. But there were fun and easy to read.
