Katie AND David ,

Okay

This is probably a good past time for adults and young adults, but me being a 12 year old it wasn't very interesting and the language was kind of hard to understand. I only downloaded this book because we had to read it in school, but I thought it was very cleverly written. Good job Oscar Wilde!!! 

Humorous

Slow starting through the first half and somewhat predictable but overall I found it to be light hearted and humorous. I enjoyed it. A nice read.

Clever Oscar

This is easily my favorite play. I love it! It makes me laugh with all the jokes pointed at the Victorian era.
