Yes. The narration of this classic story is excellent. The Picture of Dorian Gray has a lesson to be learned. We are what we do.
Yes. Since first hearing Simon Vance's voice, I've added him to my list of Favorite Narrators. His diction is excellent and each character's voice is distinctive and clear. He brings the books he narrates alive.
Absolutely. I could listen to Simon Vance all day, every day.
This is a great story, the narrative was amazing as well, I couldn't stop listening.
I purchased this audio book in spite of having seen the movie. It was a good listen but not outstanding. It held my interest so no real complaints here.
The story... this is one of my favorite books because of the clear depiction of human nature and the intelligently amusing wilde narrative, which Mr Vance's voice manages to enhance.
Maybe some titles by Kundera, the characters that is.
Lord Henry, clearly.
I didnt think the audiobook would actually match the experience of reading the book... it draws you to keep listening to it all in one sitting. Great performance by Simon Vance.
As a portrait painter I really listening to this book as I worked on a portrait. There were some real inspirational lines in the book that inspired me. This is a good read/ listen and you will enjoy it.
I really enjoyed this book. There was humor, sadness, a little intrigue and a moral. I think anyone who is interested in literature should give this one a try. Very well written and the reader was great also.
The writing is excellent, narration is great. The story line is a painting of the Victorian age, the morality is timeless. A person would want to explore the thoughts of those times to enjoy.
If they wanted something classic and lovely, sure. The movie didn't really give it much justice.
Well, I guess Dorian. I can't blame him for doing all he did. It just sucks how things ended up.
Oh definitely. Old books are hard for me to read because it doesn't flow right in my brain. But having it read to me, I listened and played attention and got so much more out of the story that if I had read it myself.
If anything, it made me miss college.
I'm pretty sure I only liked this because I learned about it in class. That's probably why I didn't care for the Great Gatsby.
Certainly! It held my attention and I was intrigued by the premise.
Dorian, a tortured soul who really does want to do right.
no this was my first and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
If I had the time yes.
