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.

Disappointed

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.

Contrived

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.
