Una acomodada familia americana adquiere un castillo en Inglaterra con fantasma incluido. Esta convivencia cambiará la vida del temido Fantasma de Canterville, y la escéptica forma de pensar de los americanos. La historia está impregnada de ingeniosas conversaciones y la divertida ironía del genial autor irlandés.

A rich American family acquires a haunted castle in England. This living together will change the ghost's life, and the sceptical way of thinking of the American family. Wilde mixes the macabre with comedy, juxtaposing devices from traditional English ghost stories with symbols of modern American consumerism.

    " entertaining enough, and clever, but also thin. not wilde's most exemplary work. it certainly illustrates that the haughty and caricatured portrayal of americans is no modern invention. wilde's apparent opinion of statesiders is here conveyed none too subtly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 2/12/2014

    " I love Wilde's vision of the world, and his view of America as the absolute picture of pragmatism. This story was beautifully written, and I read it so quickly. Wilde is a dangerously funny man. "

    " Terribly cute for an Oscar Wilde story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Reed | 12/2/2013

    " A short, fun lil ghost story. I'm sure I read this in high school but wanted to read it again just because. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellypuffs Smith | 11/24/2013

    " I'm not actually "reading" this ... I got it as an audiobook from iTunes. I've read the book before (in high school) and am enjoying rediscovering it in audio format. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mohamed Bahaa | 10/26/2013

    " Couldn't Judge it at the beginning but Love it at the end I Think it's one of his Best work "

    " I like the movies based off the story better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Dutson | 5/25/2013

    " Lovely, but very sad. I think perhaps though this is one of those rare occasions where the film adaptations' embellishments added to the pathos and value of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbey | 2/4/2013

    " Oscar Wilde doeth good like a medicine - truly funny writing. Reading fiction from another era is a good way to time travel - the humor is broader, the sweetness more saccharine, the descriptions more florid. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rizal | 12/26/2012

    " quite nice read for spare time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 8/5/2012

    " Saw the 1995 movie with Patrick Stewart the other night, and decided to read the original for comparison. Quite short, just over 100 pages at Project Gutenberg with original illustrations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 6/1/2012

    " Very funny. I loved the bit about the bloodstain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pearl | 5/25/2012

    " Ahh. This book is certainly is a lovely change from the usual screams of horror that accompanies a book with a ghost in it. I laughed so much when the ghost was first introduced. A good book for a rainy or depressing day! Anyone looking to read this is making a correct choice!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 3/29/2012

    " I read this ghost story in the 1960's. I reread it again today and it is still funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 1/9/2012

    " Such a clever book. I really like Oscar Wilde for his clever writing. This is a short read, but highly entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Rice | 12/3/2011

    " This was the first story of Wilde's I ever read. I was too young then to appreciate the sly humor. It's been made into several completely inadequate movies; one day somebody will get it right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/22/2011

    " A great little ghost tale with a Wilde twist to it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 5/21/2011

    " Not his best, but if you like Oscar this one won't disappoint...and it's super short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/6/2011

    " A very quick read but definitely a classic one. First time I had read this one. "

    " Listened to the LibriVox recording. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diana | 4/9/2011

    " While reading I kept telling myself that I liked Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray so I should give this a chance, but then I started to think of the movie Dorian Gray with Ben Barnes and well that was the end of my thought process. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 3/29/2011

    " The story itself was good. Not quite what I was expecting but it was still a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 3/28/2011

    " This is one of my favorite ghost stories; so sad but with a bittlersweet ending... "

    " A sweet story to offer to all thinking children. "

    " Leído en secundaria. Fue el primer libro que leí de Oscar Wilde, no estuvo mal pero no me terminó de convencer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clay | 2/17/2011

    " Another Gutenberg book. Good read. Drastically different from all the film adaptions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cami | 2/8/2011

    " Charming.
    Lovely.
    Filled with wry Wilde humor.
    This is definitely worth picking up. "

    " No es lo que uno espera cuando abre un libro sobre un fantasma... sin embargo esta entretenido "

About the Author
Author Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin in 1854. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887 and 1891, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895 Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
