    This is the first Oscar Wilde novel I have ever enlightened myself to, and how brilliant is the enlightenment! This novel has a beautiful moral, and is a lovely ‘read’!

    The narration seems as if read by a robot. No rhythm, no emotion. The story could have been much more enjoyable otherwise.
