Description

Oscar Wilde's only published full-length novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, is the story of a man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal youth. As Basil Hallward, an aspiring artist, puts a few touches on a portrait of his handsome young friend Dorian Gray, Gray wishes that the portrait might grow old while he remains forever young. While Dorian Gray spends his life pursuing fresh experiences and new sensations, his looks do not change. However, the portrait, secretly hidden in the attic of his residence and with which he has grown increasingly obsessed, does. More and more, as Dorian struggles to hide his true identity, the portrait reveals his progressive pathway to dissolution.

A classic but depressing story

Starts out very thought provoking and then becomes very monotonous and depressing. Still it is a classic, a novel idea and a poignant story of what happens when you don't have any "skin in the game" and do not bear the consequences of your actions. The reader does a good job.

A dreadful wonder to behold

Its a lovely jumble of psycological and mortal conflict, and i loved every second of it. It was both more and exactly what i had expected from a literary classic. Allowing oneself to truly devote the time that is spent on listening to the story and not merely hearing it, truly does make a difference when experiencing this wonderful piece of literary art.

Does not match the book

I listen and follow with book which is my own preference, but this audio book does not match the book. I even tried to match with three different copies of the book but no success. I am starting to imagine that it is an shorter version.

Amazing story and narration

This is my new favorite book of fiction, so elegantly written, and such a creepy story. The narration was a joy to listen to.
