Good Oscar Wilde short story

Enjoyable short audio of the classic Wilde story; decent reading but with the typical Audible dropped words at the beginning of every chapter.

- FarleyK "Ken Kreager"

satire in Victorian novel of manners?

sounds to me less than a Halloween ghost story and more like a blend of Brontë-gothic, combined with typical stabilization of 19th century Victorian novel of manners. but then again, his was my first listen. I enjoy b.j. Harrison's narration, but I think someone like Patrick Stewart would be more Halloween Basque .
