    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.   

    This Penguin Classic is performed by Ben Barnes, star of the film adaptation of Dorian Gray, also known for his roles in Westworld and The Chronicles of Narnia. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Robert Mighall. 

    Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.

    a Gothic goodie.

    some passages of the descriptions of the senses are painfully long, but to read too!
    otherwise a good read.

    Absolutely exquisite

    I haven't read anything this brilliant in a long time, I got the audiobook specifically to support Mr. Barnes, however this book is thrilling in ways I hadn't expected. People kept asking if I was reading for a university class, but it had just caught my attention that deeply, that I had to read it. Oscar Wilde was an amazing author and invoked my innermost poet. I didn't want to finish the book, it was that good. I will definitely read it again soon. Truly divine.

    Classic

    Ben Barnes gives an amazing performance as Dorian Gray. This version also includes an interesting review of the book and the controversy that surrounded it and its author.

    Gotta love Ben Barnes

    The writing/language was absolutely beautiful. Dorian Gray is an absolutely horrible person. Ben Barnes did a fantastic job and I love him with my whole heart. That’s the whole review. Pls listen to this.

    An excellent representation of how sin affects everyone

    I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time and now that I finally have I can tell why many people talk about immortality and how one’s personal sins and pride affect the rest of the world as well. Wilde’s novel reveals the how instant gratification hinders one’s ability to truly appreciate the present moment. Dorian’s personal obsession with his beauty leads to his societal and personal estrangement and corruption as the novel progresses. The parallel between beauty and corruption was so well woven throughout that it portrays well that vice, when first encountered, is far more attractive and appealing to others than maintaining virtue.
    I may not read this again for a long, long time as it will resonate with me for quite a while, but the lesson in this novel is truly worthwhile.

    Absolutely loved it

    This was one of my favorite books that I read in high school and Ben Barnes’s narration is absolutely fantastic!
