151. Book Review | The Importance of Being Earnest By Oscar Wilde

Recently, I decided to revisit The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde because it had been a while since I’d read it. And, I must say that I forgot how entertaining the book is. That’s why I recommend you listen and grab yourself a copy.

I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

Oscar Wilde

I used this story for an old episode because the story shows the importance of using words properly. But, it isn’t some deep dive into the depths of the soul like Crime and Punishment. The Importance of Being Earnest is a clever look at the frivolity of high society in 19th century England, which I think would ring true today.

What I found amusing about this book is the commentary on high society. It mocks people who think highly of themselves despite not being able to think much at all. In fact, they mostly think of themselves. If you thought that was clever (although it wasn’t), this book is one that I think you’d enjoy. It’s clever, witty, insightful, light, and pleasant – basically a romantic comedy with a bit of bite.
