Happy Prince and Other Tales (version 4 dramatic reading)

Book cover
By: (1854-1900)

I recently read a collection of short stories by Oscar Wilde, which included "The Happy Prince" and several other tales. I was struck by the beautiful language and vivid imagery that Wilde used to tell these poignant and thought-provoking stories.

Each tale in the collection had its own unique message and moral lesson, but they all shared a common theme of sacrifice, compassion, and the true nature of happiness. "The Happy Prince" in particular touched my heart with its story of a selfless prince who gives all he has to help the less fortunate in his city.

Wilde's writing is both poetic and meaningful, and it is clear that he had a deep understanding of human nature and the complexities of the human experience. I found myself reflecting on the stories long after I had finished reading them, and I believe that they will continue to resonate with me for a long time to come.

Overall, I highly recommend this collection of tales to anyone who enjoys literature that is both beautiful and thought-provoking. Wilde's timeless stories are a true testament to the power of storytelling and the enduring impact that it can have on readers.

Book Description:
Wilde's collection of fairytales has delighted both children and adults since it was first published in 1888. It contains five stories, "The Happy Prince", "The Nightingale and the Rose", "The Selfish Giant", "The Devoted Friend", and "The Remarkable Rocket". The volunteers who lent their voices to this dramatic reading are Availle, Rebecca Braunert-Plunkett, ElleyKat, Amanda Friday, Libby Gohn, Elizabeth Klett, Arielle Lipshaw, Beth Thomas, and Katalina Watt.

I'm not a native speaker, but I listen to them to learn English. I gave it a high rating because each character's voice was easy to understand. I have read Oscar Wilde in my native language as well, and all the stories are wonderful.

This book is really brilliant. I love Wilde so much, I reading his book when I was 4. Now, 13 years past,,,I can speak and read a little English now. But ,,,我还是说中文吧, 王尔德本身就没写多少文章, 所以他的每一篇文章我都读过,真的很棒 透着一种英国式的悲伤。有声书的那个志愿者的声音很soft,我想他一定很温柔。他的声音很配得上这篇文章。
