Petty Troubles of Married Life, part 1

by Honoré de Balzac

Interesting and rather humorous portrayal of the battle of the sexes. Although some of the examples Balzac provides are now outdated, most of his main ideas still stand ground.
Very entertaining, too!

The Picture of Dorian Gray

by Oscar Wilde

A magnificent piece of literary work! The language is exquisite: beautiful metaphors, excellent sentences and brilliant dialogues. The characters are built with very realistic and deep psychological understanding. I've read this book a couple of times, but I will probably reach for it again in the future.
This is Oscar Wilde at his best!

The Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

Beautiful writing and interesting characters. Oscar Wilde offers commentary and critique of society, while keeping the irony and humor in each line. Excellent!

Pygmalion

by George Bernard Shaw

Psychologically intricate characters that are portrayed in beautiful English!
It is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking and serious. It's easy to empathize with Eliza and more that easy to be enthralled by the complexity and edgy charm of Professor Higgin's character.
