similar by Price (less than 5 GBP)
Funny, unpredictable and great drama
A bit too complex ? (*)
Deals with modern political matters from the last century - clever narrative.
Not quite a Wilde, then again not a bad thing. (*)
Superbly written, witty, funny, and yet thought-provoking
If acted badly, is an insult to a superb piece (*)
A true one-off
Can't tell you: it would spoil it... (*)
Very good play for studying critical thinking, still relevant today
Tragic; heavy storyline (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (A)
complex characters
felt a bit suffocated whilst reading (*)
Economy of style; oblique, sharp wit and humour; palpable tension; comprehensible mathematical and scientific ideas.
Can be a tad complex; I haven't seen it onstage; not available on audiobook or film. (*)
'nice happy' ending, Not too many characters generally an easy read
Leaves you doulting wether the [anti]hero really deserves the heroine (*)
hilarious and perfectly apt
strange modern translation won't be for purists (*)
A Masterpiece
None (*)
