Summary

"When we are happy, we are always good," says Lord Henry, "but when we are good, we are not always happy." Lord Henry’s lazy, clever words lead the young Dorian Gray into a world where it is better to be beautiful than to be good; a world where anything can be forgiven - even murder - if it can make people laugh at a dinner party.

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Oscar Wilde original by Jill Nevile.

Critic reviews

"The most consistent of all series in terms of language control, length, and quality of storytelling." (David R Hill, ELT JOURNAL REVIEW, 2008)
