あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.   

This Penguin Classic is performed by Ben Barnes, star of the film adaptation of Dorian Gray, also known for his roles in Westworld and The Chronicles of Narnia. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Robert Mighall. 

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.

Absolutely exquisite

I haven't read anything this brilliant in a long time, I got the audiobook specifically to support Mr. Barnes, however this book is thrilling in ways I hadn't expected. People kept asking if I was reading for a university class, but it had just caught my attention that deeply, that I had to read it. Oscar Wilde was an amazing author and invoked my innermost poet. I didn't want to finish the book, it was that good. I will definitely read it again soon. Truly divine.

but needs more translations, less english lit

worth it for the introduction alone (this is not the best version to buy on audible)

penguin classics really needs to put more TRANSLATED classics on audible because penguin classics has superior translations than what's currently available. (not sure why they thought we needed another picture of dorian gray audiobook)

Perfect Narrator!

Some might say I am extremely biased, given my adoration for Ben Barnes, but I promise you, I've judged this fairly. Mr. Barnes is a perfect narrator for this, his voice is complimentary to Wilde's story. He brings us back to Dorian Gray's life and times, the highs and lows, the horror. It's a rich story and he reads it perfectly. I was intrigued from the very beginning to the very end. I'm not a big audiobook person, but I love this. Bravo, Ben!

Amazing

I’ve put off reading Dorian Gray for no apparent reason. I’m very happy I waited until I was able to listen to Ben Barnes read it to me. Oscar Wilde is genius. The story is as relevant today as when wrote. And Ben Barnes is splendid. I’m going to miss hearing him.

Simply a masterpiece

So beautifully powerful! There is art and The Picture of Dorian Gray! The literary elements used in the novel to mark the change in Dorian, the explicit contrat that tained his soul. The representation of society was not in Dorian Gray but in Henry. Henry is the corrupting element on the book, the factor that changed Dorian. Henry is like patient 0, and he is what humanity is now. Bane, selfish, and egotistical.

compelling story and beautiful narration

I loved to listen to this book after reading it in the Italian translation more then twenty years ago. Ben Barnes was great, to the point that I forgot it was him who was reading.

Boring.

Love the whole concept of Dorian Gray but this audible just bored me. Maybe it was the narrator I don’t know. I had to return it for fear of boredom again.

One of the best books I've listened too!<br />

First time I've read any oscar wilde and it certainly lived up to expectations. Exquisitely written with such rich language and excellently narrated. The narrator does a wonderful rendition.
