Publisher's Summary

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.

all time classic, that is more relevant each day.

classic tale that highlights the destructive nature of appearance and facade. more relevant than ever, gray highlights youth, corrupted by the rich and powerful for their own gratification, eventually falling into the condition of beauty is all that matters, sealing his fate as an outcast, beautiful but despised

Incredible performance of a chilling classic!

I never tire of hearing Stephen Fry bring classic literature to life. A brilliant interpretation.

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.

Perfect narrator for the Wildean tragedy

Couldn't stop listening - Stephen Fry's enthusiastic narration makes Dorian Gray's clever, harrowing tale even more delightful.
