Publisher's Summary

Penguin Classics presents Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, adapted for listening and now available as a digital audiobook, as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by the actor John Moffatt.
"I am jealous of everything whose beauty does not die. I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me ... Why did you paint it? It will mock me some day - mock me horribly!"
A story of evil, debauchery, and scandal, Oscar Wilde’s only novel tells of Dorian Gray, a beautiful yet corrupt man. When he wishes that a perfect portrait of himself would bear the signs of ageing in his place, the picture becomes his hideous secret, as it follows Dorian’s own downward spiral into cruelty and depravity. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a masterpiece of deals made in fear and ignorance, and the evil in men’s hearts, and is as controversial and alluring as Wilde himself.
Part of a collection of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives, the Penguin English Library series offers affordable, collectable, quality productions that are perfect for on-the-go listening.

John Moffatt was an astounding reader for an equally astounding novel. I adore the Picture of Dorian Gray, but I've never had it read to me. I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it.
