Summary

Oscar Wilde's only published full-length novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, is the story of a man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal youth. As Basil Hallward, an aspiring artist, puts a few touches on a portrait of his handsome young friend Dorian Gray, Gray wishes that the portrait might grow old while he remains forever young. While Dorian Gray spends his life pursuing fresh experiences and new sensations, his looks do not change. However, the portrait, secretly hidden in the attic of his residence and with which he has grown increasingly obsessed, does. More and more, as Dorian struggles to hide his true identity, the portrait reveals his progressive pathway to dissolution.

Perfect narrator for the Wildean tragedy

Couldn't stop listening - Stephen Fry's enthusiastic narration makes Dorian Gray's clever, harrowing tale even more delightful.

Amazing

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this book - the commentary from Stephen Fry, the story, the pace - all of it. It is a fantastic piece of literature. Importantly it is still relevant in today’s world and the use of language is wonderful. Highly recommended!

Fry is perfect for this book.

Stephen Fry's voice and technique are both perfect for the delivery of this story. Accomplished author / accomplished narrator. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
