Happy Prince and Other Tales (version 3)

Book cover
By: (1854-1900)

A collection of five stories by Oscar Wilde, all incorporating his inimitable style and wit. Sometimes sweet and uplifting, sometimes caustic and pointed, they all are well worth listening to. The Happy Prince is a beautiful tale about a statue of a prince, but one who can now see his city and kingdom and the sadness of his people. With the help of a little swallow he does what he can to help others. The Nightingale and the Rose is a tale of self sacrifice, selfishness and misunderstanding. The Selfish Giant learns a valuable lesson about the laughter of children, The Devoted Friend is a caustic tale about false friendship, and The Remarkable Rocket explores the self delusion of people (and rockets) who think the world revolves around them.

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。
