Simply a delight.

A gem. Presuably a BBC production and as close to perfect as can be.

Good story, poor narration

The narration of this otherwise great story is disappointingly amateurish. Wilde's wonderful tale is mired in the poor reading. Surprising to find this low quality recording on Audible.
