The Importance of Being Earnest

Review

This one was recommended to me, since it was very funny and interesting and it was a classic too.

Since I had to read something like a comedy, I went ahead and took the chance of reading it, it was very good, to be a play it was very forward and simple to understand and all the entanglements the poor characters were to suffer in it, were absolutely enjoyable.

A good read and very short too, if you have an hour or two to spare you can even hear the audio book that will bring even more alive everything.

An absolute marvel to go by.

Como tenía que leer algo así como una comedia, seguí adelante y aproveché la oportunidad de leerlo, fue muy bueno, para ser una obra de teatro, fue muy avanzado y simple de entender y todos los enredos que los pobres personajes debían sufrir en él. , fueron absolutamente agradables.

Una buena lectura y muy breve también, si tiene una o dos horas de sobra, incluso puede escuchar el audiolibro que le dará aún más vida a todo.
