From AudioFile

The L.A. Theatre Works performs plays tailored for a radio format before live audiences. The works are treats for the ear: Each features first-rate performances, rich but not overdone sound effects, evocative background music, expert engineering and the immediacy of an audience's live responses. AN IDEAL HUSBAND, Oscar Wilde's 1895 comedy, shows how a good adaptation of a classic play can speak to the present age. Martin Jarvis and director Michael Hackett have slightly streamlined Wilde's play about a rising politician with a secret in his past whose efforts to prevent exposure call attention to the hypocrisy of holding our leaders to higher standards than we ourselves live by. The large cast handles the witty dialogue with delicacy: Jacqueline Bisset charmingly plays one of dramatic literature's most polite blackmailers. The insouciance of the performances emphasizes rather than detracts from the play's serious theme of social hypocrisy. G.H.

Format: Paperback
I've read the play and watched the movie many times. While there are differences, they are both, to put it in a British way, jolly good! I never tire of the people who populate this play/movie. Lady Gertrude's "high moral standards and high ideals" are delightful, Sir Robert is an ideal husband, despite his past, the exchanges of wit between Miss Mable and Lord Arthur keep me laughing long after I've turned off the TV or laid down the book and Mrs. Chevely is splendidly evil. It brings a smile and, if you're so inclined, maybe a tear, too. An Ideal Husband is well worth owning so you can grab it whenever you feel like taking a dip into the grand London "Season" of 1895!

The film is splendid, with Wilde and beautiful dialogue. Hence I infer the book must be an underappreciated old chestnut. Nearly all contemporary films are utterly inept when it comes to plot, dialogue, and character. This is a happy exception. And I am now a Minnie Driver fan.

This book is by the same guy who did "The five love languages". That book was groundbreaking for me, and all of a sudden I felt like I understood my parents, my spouse, my friends, my niece and nephew...

The Five Love Languages of Apology provided me with that same awakening. I almost immediately began to perceive why there was such a difference between how I saw things and others saw things when it came to saying sorry.

Not to say that I now can get anyone to accept my apologies and not hold a grudge, but it helps me understand why I'm not always able to please others.

The biblical undertones are fine, and I understand where the author is coming from. To me, it neither adds nor takes away from this book.

Format: Paperback
Wilde, in part, attempts to portray the relativity of truth, power, and character, things we often take as absolutes, while also entertaining his audience with witty dialogue and comical mishaps.
