Summary
Dorian Gray, a young man of wealth and stature in late 1800's London, meets Lord Henry Wotton while posing for a portrait by his friend Basil Hallward. Once the painting is complete, Dorian realizes that it will always be young and attractive, while he will be forced to age and wither with the years. Carelessly, he wishes the opposite were true. What happens is a treatise on morals, self-indulgence and how crucial personal responsibility is towards one's self. (Summary by John Gonzalez)

It’s strange but I’m happy to listen to classic books that I would never want to read as a physical or ebook. That’s opened up a whole new world and I really enjoyed listening to a book I only know by name.

The narration for this book was just absolutely awful, I couldn’t get through it. Within the first two pages alone the narrator skips sentences. He has odd pauses that are unnecessary, and even mispronounces words. I would’ve loved to a finished listening to this, but it was just too painful.

John Gon takes too much time in between chapters repeating his own information.

I loved this book, it was very interesting and captivating to me. Definitely a great gothic horror classic. I listened to this recording as I read it, which was nice. The only issue is that this recording does skip some sections of the book, along with skipping a few full chapters.

really enjoyed hearing this finally after having been fascinated with the idea of it for a long long time. The Narration was superb, hardly noticed it was being read to me since it seemed so natural! many thanks.

The narrator is way too over dramatic, even when swallowing! It was difficult to keep listening to the book.

great story, a bit rambling towards the middle, but skipping that section did not diminish the story any

I had expected more due to seeing the movie several times. But I did enjoy the book

Quite dark and Sad, Was reading about the Author, Wilde, and seemed like a lot of his own life influenced this story.

I wonder if this is the same Dorian Gray from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Narrator ok. Could be better could be worse Book ok. Kept thinking about movie mentioned above.
