Edward Petherbridge's reading makes it special!

What made the experience of listening to The Picture of Dorian Gray the most enjoyable?

Edward Petherbridge's reading is simply wonderful!He moves from light touch humour to heart-rending pathos with stunning skill.The story is a little long winded in parts but Mr Petherbridge never fails to entertain and transfix.


Which character – as performed by Edward Petherbridge – was your favourite?

The development of the characters is quite clunky, for modern tastes, but you are held in Mr Petherbridge's grasp throughout.


Any additional comments?

Buy it - Listen to it and If you can turn it off then you are not a human being :)

A fine reading of Wilde's morality, excellently narrated. Characters are well defined and it is always obvious who is who. Highly recommended.
