Wilde's infamous novel about the life of Dorian Gray brings to the forefront of the mind the folly of vanity and the destructiveness of narcissism. Despite a bit of a dip in the middle and at times a fast paced audio, this audiobook brings alive the main characters and enabled me to experience for the first time why Wilde is a renowned as a legend of the written word.
I can't get through this because the narrator is not very good. The narrator makes or breaks and audiobook, and he's just too distracting due to his lack of talent.

I'd have been more impressed when I was younger, but somehow this escaped me and I'd never read it. Of course, I knew basically what is was all about. Now it seems awfully contrived--interesting as a moral tale but not so much as a novel. What I liked best: the wonderfully witty dialog. What I like least: the narrator. He hadn't a clue how to pronounce anything English--names of people and places were wrong and the pacing was off too.
