The beauty of GBS is the flow and the pictures he is able to draw in your mind. He is one of my favorite playwrights. Arms and the Man was my first play. Didn't stop until I read them all. This particular book is perfect for a trans-continental flight - two plays on the way out, two on the return leg.

Format: Paperback
I don't find George Bernard Shaw as entertaining as I'm supposed to. I have no doubt that his work was very forward-thinking and funny at the time, and I know that he is an important playwright. I'm also sure that in the hands of the right director any of these plays would be fantastic. However, I felt like all of the stories in this collection contained the same gimmicks. You could tell where the play was going in the first couple scenes. I guess my favorite of them all was Candida. It had the most unexpected plotline, and I felt like it wasn't trying to be anything.
