This is NOT The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde. I have no idea what the other people in the comments are even talking about. This book only contains like four plays that I've never heard of. The Portrait of Dorian Gray is certainly not in it, nor the majority of Wilde's works. I am extremely enraged and cannot believe they are allowed to sell this book under such false pretenses. Do not buy.

Not the complete works of Oscar Wilde, plain and simple. No Dorian Grey, no Importance of Being Earnest. How can an Oscar Wilde anthology be complete without those?

It's four plays you've never heard of, and that's that. Very misleading title.

I would like to add my voice to those who point out that this is, indeed, false advertising. The Kindle edition contains only Dorian Gray and Earnest, so definitely NOT "complete works". This edition should be removed from Amazon.

The Kindle edition only contains two stories: Earnest and Dorian Gray. It is not the "Complete Works of Oscar Wilde" and frankly that's false advertising. Yeah, it was only 99 cents, but no, it wasn't what it claimed to be. Obviously Oscar Wilde is a great author, but you'll have to look elsewhere to find most of his work.

Not impressed. Far from being a complete works, as the title suggests, it is a collection of everything BUT the good stuff!! I bought it specifically for the purpose of having The Importance of Being Earnest as well as a few others such as Lady Windermere's Fan and A Woman of No Importance. It contained none of these, only lesser works that I never particularly likes let alone would buy two copies of! Complete Works, my a**.

I'm glad I only paid $1 for this. I knew it was to good to be true. This is not a complete works. Completely false advertisement. Buyer beware

There is no index whatsoever - it tells you what's included but you can go there directly. So, you have a lot of work to go thru finding the things of interest and then bookmarking them (I'm kind of new to the Kindle app so maybe there's a better way that I just haven't tumbled to yet) so you can go directly to them. Once that's out of the way, I expect it'll be just fine and, at that time, worth a 5th star.
The 'Reprint' did not at all match the online preview, i.e., the preview showed extracts from classic Wilde texts and the actual reprint did not include any of these! It only inlcuded some very obscure texts that certainly do not constitute, wholly, or partially, the 'complete works'. This was a major disappointment...
