The Importance of Being Earnest

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Oscar Wilde

Narrated By: LibriVox Volunteers

Date: January 2017

Duration: 2 hours 18 minutes

Summary:

The Importance of Being Earnest is a classic comedy of manners in which two flippant young men, in order to impress their respected beloveds, pretend that their names are “Ernest,” which both young ladies believe confers magical qualities on the possessor. It was first performed for the public on February 14, 1895 at the St. James’ Theatre in London, and is regarded by many critics and scholars as being the wittiest play in the English language. (Summary from Wikipedia.org)

    Story was clever enough, but needed readers with a better sense of timing and inflection to do it justice. Since this is a play, everything depends on the dialogue.

    The play is funny. The recording is terrible. It sounds like each part was recorded by the actor and then they were stitched together. The volume and timbre changes with each character

  • PuzzlingPandora

    The play itself is delightful. This recording, however, is very uneven in both volume and performance level.

  • Patricia B.

    verry funny. a lesson in being honesty.

  • Ben V

    Really funny play. Narration was with good effort but doesn’t sound like a professional recording

  • Kate H

    Some of the narrators were horrid.

  • Dominika V

    Not the greatest recording quality, but definitely a great story! Sure keeps you company on long drives.

  • Cory A

    Not the best recording but the play is great. funny.

  • Holly H

    One of my favourite audio books. Listened to it many times. All roles are narrated very well and very funny. Couldn't help laughing and mimicking the characters as I listen!

  • Beverly S

    Very entertaining and witty, one of my favorite plays.
