The Canterville Ghost is one of Oscar Wilde’s most famous and enduring stories. Coming out at the end of this month, this is one of our most ambitious works to date.

Reader, in your eager and clasping hands, you hold one of Oscar Wilde's most cherished works: The Canterville Ghost. This comic chiller has delighted many down the years, and you now have the possibility of reading it as nobody has before.

Ferociously ironic and playfully bold, Oscar Wilde was the wild boy and rebel of the Victorian age. Bringing colour, flamboyancy, and scandal to a drab, downtrodden, and dreary age, he shocked and beguiled readers with his erudite parody and gut-punching wit.

Our brand new iClassic is replete with comedy and chills, nuance and charm, penned by one of the most canonical writers from the western literary tradition. Get our brand new and wholly original immersive experience today, and have a wild time!

Beautifully done, although shorter than I had imagined

A very creative way of presenting excellent literature. However, I was finished in 30-45 minutes, and I had expected a bit more than that for the price of $2.99.

These books are entertaining and well done, but unfortunately I have to give them a low rating due to the apps suspicious behavior. I have purchased all of the iclassics and found that they all immediately default to the 'on' position in cellular data and immediately use nearly a megabyte of data. Why a book would need to use any data at all is curious and that they use that much data is both odd and suspicious. I wrote to the company at the email posted on their website but received no response. I cannot recommend purchasing these books unless they stop this practice of sending whatever data they're gathering and using customers cellular data without permission.

Love the Fixes.....but.....

I’m so happy to see the fixes have made it in for almost all of the books. So they all get five stars as always and I can now get to the ones I haven’t read yet. Only one question - will you be fixing the last two - Canterville Ghost and Sleepy Hollow? I know I can read them elsewhere but I was looking forward to the design of the standalone works for each. These have been some of the best ‘apps’ I’ve ever bought on Apple. Great idea to create them!!!
Thanks - Ric
