      Una aut ntica joya de la literatura El mejor scar Wilde en una historia viva a d a de hoy Ideal para leer en e idioma original para todos aquellos que quieran sumergirse en la literatura en ingles Adem s, es una obra que nos invita a reflexionar sobre el ser humano y nos aporta argumentos s lidos para un buen debate a la vez que ameniza con una historia que te atrapa desde la primera p gina

    2. Carlos on said:

      No avisan por ninguna parte, pero este NO es el libro original Se acaba en el cap tulo 10 y obviamente hay muchos m s Para colmo, la portada est pixelada No merece la pena por el precio que tiene, sobre todo si no est entero Un poco indignante que en ning n lado digan que no es la versi n completa.

    3. pilar on said:

      El libro en s no es que tenga un problema, es que es una adaptaci n y no lo avisan Vamos, que me lo he comprado y no me vale Es de estos libros con mucho texto eliminado y lenguaje simplificado, de los que se usan cuando uno est aprendiendo el idioma Es cierto que si miras la longitud del libro canta un poco lo de las 64 p ginas, pero como en el t tulo y la descripci n no avisan pues uno se puede confundir.

    4. Nemarc on said:

      Libro muy grande para el texto que trae Le sobra la mitad de las paginas, podia ser mas liviano.Del nivel, es alto

    5. Spring Day on said:

      Est muy bien esta versi n original para Kindle y se agradece much simo poder encontrarla gratuitamente Lo le hace un tiempo y me esperaba la historia algo diferente, m s oscura, pero estuvo correcta.

    6. Amazonico on said:

      Ideal para el fin que se indica, muy amenos e instructivo, se ajusta a la descripci n por parte del vendedor

    7. Moisés on said:

      Todo un cl sico Si te gustan los cl sicos, te recomiendo este libro, da intriga, y es muy interesante, me encanta

    8. Mimi on said:

      Me encanta Simplemente no tengo palabras para este libro Un must de cualquier bibli filo a que se precie Lord Henry es de alucine, muy c nico, pero suelta cada verdad por la boca, que tengo el libro lleno de pasajes suyos subrayados.
