This was a nice short compilation of quotes written by Oscar Wilde. I loved reading some and remembering when I read the the first time in The Picture of Dorian Gray. Will definitely be picking up more of Wilde's plays. ...more

One should always have something fabulous to read on the train!

But seriously this is a really lovely little collection that is particularly good to dip in and out of, (perhaps on public transport).

One of those little books that come in handy when you can't find your own witty turn of phrase! Full of Wilde-isms and all the better for it. ...more

Some great quotes in here, although without the context of the text they were taken from, it didn't really have much of a flow. ...more
