    Brilliant!

    This book haunted my childhood. Macabre and funny at the same time. Utterly brilliant.

    Charming old story for Oscar Wilde fans

    This story is dated but humorous and charming. I enjoyed re-reading it, and recommend it for Oscar Wilde fans. It is not fast-moving in the way of a modern thriller, but it doesn't get bogged down. It is a short read. I think if you like Oscar Wilde's writing, you'll enjoy this story!

    Sir Simon's short story

    There are multiple adaptations of this story, but reading the original piece surprised me. Most adaptations explain how Sir Simon's wife met her end as well as what happened to Virginia when she went through the wall with him, but the written piece explains neither. I found that it was over with too quickly. Still, it is an entertaining little tale worth the hour or so that it takes to read.

    This story may be short, but it is highly amusing. I did not experience a single second of boredom when reading this. I felt so sorry for the poor ghost, having to deal with obnoxious Americans who refused to pay him the respect he deserved. This entertaining tale from Oscar Wilde is definitely worth reading!
