Publisher's Summary

Basil Hallward is infatuated and impressed by Englishman Dorian Gray's beauty, and therefore Dorian has been the subject of most of Hallward's oil paintings. While Dorian is posing for a full-length portrait, he meets Lord Henry Wotton, a materialistic man who shares his hedonistic world view, stating that beauty is the only truly important thing in life. Dorian is persuaded to this point and through a course of events sells his soul so that his portrait will wither and grow old, while his earthly body remains young and beautiful. When the wish is granted, Dorian lives a carefree life while his portrait ages, collecting the all the soul-corrupting sins he commits.

Good book, terrible cover

Interesting, definitely worth a read. Some beautiful, insightful sections. A few long tedious expository parts. His dialogue is his forte, which makes sense, as he was primarily a playwright. Great performance from the voice actor. Nice one.
