What did you like best about The Picture of Dorian Gray? What did you like least?
I think I liked some of the concept of Dorian Gray, and I liked the dialog (showing that Wilde was as quick witted as any). What didn't work was some of the description (but the description may work well for other listeners)
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The story of Dorian Gray is a well known one. Even before listening to the story, I was aware of its beats, its themes, and some of its characters. As such, I wasn't riveted in place. However, it was worth taking the time to finish.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
There have been numerous film and television adaptations of Dorian Gray, and I might see one of them, if only to see how they treat the famous picture.

Would you try another book from Oscar Wilde and/or Kate Petrie?
Probably not! I know this is a classic, but I found the story to be overly verbose and slow moving, while the narrator's soft voice lulled me into sleep often.
