Pity Sir Simon de Canterville, the poor Ghost of Canterville Chase! He killed his wife and was then starved to death by her brothers, but ever since then he's been happily haunting the family's mansion, always inventing fresh characters and costumes and blood-curdling shrieks.

Now along comes the Otis family, confident brash Americans who really aren't impressed by an old British ghost. What's a poor spirit to do? Only the young daughter of the family is sympathetic, and only she can help him solve his problem once and for all. Oscar Wilde's witty text and clever story-telling will make this one of your favorite humorous ghost stories. Download and start listening now!

    " My favorite book of all time. This story speaks to readers today as it did when it was written. I believe it always will. "

    " Reminds me of Frankenstein; captivated me from the start. I think, there is a Dorian Gray in all of us. "

    " I thought there were some pretty slow parts that I basically ignored as I listened to it but I thought it was a good book. It shows how vanity and pride can take over your life and make you so selfish and evil. "

    " Very interesting book. Excellent but quite well known plot by now. The description is consistently vivid, and at places the crimes are really hideous. Highly recommended. ... What it is to gain the world, if, in the process, a man loses his soul. "

    " This book has some fantastic one-liners and is very thought-provoking. Often funny, very relevant to today as well as the time in which it was published. Also reveals fascinating insight into the life of a late-Victorian British gentleman. "

    " had to read it for an english class but I enjoyed it.. the modern movie version isn't too bad "

    " an interesting insight into the weakness of beauty-wilde's wit failed to disappoint; however, chapter eleven was extremely tediously (read:boring)-the numerous parallels to wilde's own life proved intriguing. "

    " This book really makes you think. Who are you really? "

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.
