What made the experience of listening to The Importance of Being Earnest the most enjoyable?
The eccentric characters leave a lot of room for interpretation and each actor had their own take on each character! At first, I was a little surprised..not quite envisioning Algernon or Jack like the way I perceived them in my mind. However, the actors quickly persuaded me that they were indeed superb to portray the two male leads. Lady B's huaghty attitude was of course PERFECTION. I just laugh the whole time she is speaking.
What other book might you compare The Importance of Being Earnest to and why?
I would say Anton Chekov's one act plays! The Bear and The Proposal. They are very similar in the way in which they mock society with humor.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! I usually listen in the car so it really depends on travel times.
Any additional comments?
I hope this is taken with the warmest sentiment, but I felt like the stage directions were read with a little too low of a timber. It kind of interrupted the mood of the play.. which I guess it is supposed to do to signify changes in scene. Perhaps though it could have been lightened a tad because I do enjoy her voice! It really did not take away from the performance at all though.
