Audible Editor Reviews

Scandalous when first published due to its homoerotic overtones and laissez faire attitude towards sexual pleasure, The Picture of Dorian Gray is legendary Irish writer Oscar Wilde's classic literary comment on hedonism and the youthful pursuits of desire.
Narrated with artfully restrained passion by Alec Sand, the listener is captivated by this strange and wonderful story concerning a beautiful young man, Dorian Gray, who sells his soul so that he will never age in order to pursue the passions of the flesh while at the height of his stunning physical prowess.

An true rendition

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.
