Description

The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Espousing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfillment of the senses. Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses his desire to sell his soul to ensure the portrait Basil has painted would age rather than himself. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, plunging him into debauched acts. The portrait serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul, with each sin displayed as a disfigurement of his form, or through a sign of aging. This reading uses the 20-chapter 1891 version of Wilde's novel.

Customer Reviews

Why does everyone sound young and full of life except for dorian?

The actor cast to play dorian gray sounds like my grandfather. Why doesn't he sound young?

Terrible Audiobook but at least it's Free

This is perhaps the worst audiobook I have ever heard, very difficult to understand and the reader's inflections don't actually match the tone of the story. However, I didn't give this 1 star because at least it's free. If you want a much better free reading get the iTunes U version by Lit2Go, it is the best version I've heard so far.
