    "great story, lost concentration a bit"

    I wanted to listen to a classic and wasn't disappointed. the narrator puts on different voices for the different characters so it is easier to follow

    "Loved This One!"

    This book depicts much of what life is like today with the average narcissistic personality type. It's scary how current and ahead of his time the writer, Oscar Wilde was. I enjoyed this book and I'm certain it will be very good reading for others as well. Keep up the great work Audible!

    Story
    "As awesome as the classic movie, & then some!"

    The old gothic movie of the same name has always been one of my favorites...a creepy dark tale that was made from the book with a strange & unique plot. Both the movie & the book are unforgetable classics, & Oscar Wilde is a genius as an author of the macabre.

    Story
    "Way more bearable in audio than in print"

    It's a classic so... it's as good as a classic ever is. For its era it must have been pretty edgy and dark, and, even in our modern cynical world, it is still kinda dark and surprising. Though I think by now the story "twist" is part of our popular culture so nobody is going to be very shocked.

    This book is very difficult to get through in its print form as it has multiple descriptive tangents which drove me crazy, but as an audio, it was much less boring (guess I phased out during the boring bits)...

    That all being said, I read this for a research project and, as such, it was one of the more bearable books I had to read. Though I would not read it again, nor would I read anything else by Wilde... I just don't care about wealthy gay men and their trials and tribulations as they screw their way across the city.

    The narration is very good - and certainly made the story readable. It's a classic, so there is nothing adult or graphic in it, though there are lots of subtle suggestions of various types of debauchery.

    "Very dark, but good"

    I enjoyed this. It started very good, dragged a bit in the middle but when it picks up it is very interesting and keeps you wanting to know the final outcome. it did not disappoint.

    "Really bad narrating"

    The narrator had terrible "in character" voices that ruined the story for me. Dorian's was the worst.
