    • I like to do all the talking myself It saves time, and prevents arguments These are a lot like Andersen s tales fairy tale kind of prose, talking objects, often with sad elements and sad endings Add to it, Wilde s popular witticisms The Rose and Nightingale is one of the most beautiful stories I have read I am so clever that sometimes I don t understand a single word of what I am saying Life is one fool thing after another whereas love is two fool things after each other I hate people who talk a [...]


    • The popular author of The Book Thief, Markus Zusak aptly says in his introduction of this book There s something in these fairy tales that reminds me why any of us would want to be readers and writers in the first place, and that is that, the amazing the stories become, the I believe them, and the I realize that I won t forget them For me, these stories are truly unforgettable The Happy Prince 5 stars Amazing A formerly rich and only child prince is now a regal statue The town people look up [...]

    • When you truly live your life, you have to learn to accept and maybe expect the rare and unexpected surprises that might be in store for you These unanticipated wonders often bring about a lot of joy in our lives and sometimes also have the capacity of teaching us a gentle yet important lesson My surprise for the day was this small little book, a set of short stories written by Oscar Wilde and believe me I was simply floored by the simplicity as well as the complexity there was in these tales.Be [...]

    • I have found that any author I was forced to read in my ancient school days tends to be ignored these days when I can choose my own reading Oscar Wilde certainly fits that statement I remember having to dissect The Picture Of Dorian Gray for some class or other, and the only other work of his I have read since then was The Importance Of Being Earnest I enjoyed that, but it did not inspire me to discover any about or by Wilde.But a few days ago I noticed a review by fellow GR group member Rick, [...]


    • This is a collection of five short stories, that are fairy tale like moral fables, not only for children, but drenched in subtle hints aimed at the older readers.When questioned about the maturity of the language in his stories, Wilde ridiculed the idea that extremely limited vocabulary at the disposal of the British child should be the standard by which the prose of an artist is to be judged.These tales are dark and colorful at the same time, and deal mostly with selfishness, compassion, egotis [...]

    • If this book doesn t make you want to curl up with a nice hot cup of arsenic and maybe some razor blades, you read a different edition than I did Apparently Wilde read Hans Christian Anderson and thought, Dang nab it, I can write way way depressing fairy tales, too Not saying it s not pretty Just saying.

    • This is a beautiful little collection of stories I thought I d never read any of them, but I d definitely read The Selfish Giant before, and some of the others seemed familiar The stories are all a little like fairy tales, though, so that s probably part of it.My favourites were The Nightingale and the Rose and The Fisherman and His Soul , I think All of them are lovely, though I especially like the beginning of Star Child Some of the lines in it are gorgeous, like And when they came to the Moun [...]


    • ini bagus bangeeett.Suka banget sama cerita cerita di dalamnya yang meskipun disampaikan dengan bahasa dan kalimat sederhana tapi pesan moralnya banyak banget Ini sebenernya masuk kategori children, tapi entah kenapa kalo dibaca sama orang dewasa kayaknya bakal bikin berpikir banyak dan ngehubungin dengan keadaan ketika udah dewasa, karena pesan moralnya timeless banget yah.Oscar Wilde juara bikin cerita sederhana tapi emosinya teraduk aduk dan banyak pesan moralnya Bagian cerita bunga mawar itu [...]

    • Wilde is a fantastic prose stylist, if you can tolerate his style, and this is one of his most accessible works, as well as a surprising one in many ways for those with certain preconceived notions of the author Wilde here often puts his aesthetic pose second to his political and moral views two things that Oscar Wilde wasn t meant to have at all.On the other hand, this probably isn t the best demonstration of Wilde s skills The idea of the arch sophisticate taking on the genre of simple, childl [...]


    • I do really like Oscar Wilde, so giving this collectiont three stars pains me somewhat It s not that they aren t well written, they re just incredibly sad and frustrating The Devoted Friend , for example, just annoyed me There are no happy endings and, call me old fashioned, but I think happy endings in children s stories are a necessity That being said I read The Selfish Giant many times as a child Whether it did me any good or not remains to be seen From an analytical point of view I could tal [...]

    • I fell in love with Oscar Wilde s writings ever since I read his The Nightengale and the Rose when one of my friends gave it to me saying Oh, Heba, read it it s truly touching And I was not disappointed the first time I read it I wept of frustration, I was deeply deeply touched So, knowing that this story is part of Wilde s The Happy Prince and Other Tales , I decided to read it as a whole hoping to find stories better, if there can be anything better, or at least at the same level as The Nighte [...]


    • The Happy Prince and Other Tales is my first read for Oscar Wilde, and it won t be the last It s combined of 5 short stories, each story carries a moral at the end of it I m not sure if this book is appropriate to be narrated for kids at bedtime, because view spoiler the stories are not the and they lived happily ever after type of fairy tales The endings may be disturbing for the little fellows hide spoiler.How did I like each story The Happy Prince 3 stars, liked it.The Nightingale and the Ros [...]

    • The overall rating is just a result of a simple mathematical division The only rating that really matters is the one for The Happy Prince And it is a pure 5 stars I have read The Happy Price countless times and cried my eyes out again and again But I would will do it again, it s worth the pain As for the other stories , I encountered them for the first time.My ratings go like this The Happy Prince Infinitely sad, infinitely perfect Ultimate sacrifice made for the good of others, repaid in anothe [...]
