The wish comes true, and Dorian soon finds that none of his wicked actions have visible consequences. Realizing that he will appear fresh and unspoiled no matter what kind of life he lives, Dorian becomes increasingly corrupt, unchecked by public opinion. Only the portrait grows degenerate and ugly, a powerful symbol of Dorian's internal ruin.
Wilde's dreamlike exploration of life without limits scandalized its late-Victorian audience and has haunted readers' imaginations for more than a hundred years.

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.
i couldn't tell you - never read the print version
the memory of seeing "wilde" - the movie about oscar wilde's life, and how remarkably similar this book is to the goings on in the author's life.
no - after awhile, it does get a bit old though - all the witty observations, at first playful and fun, get a bit tedious and later too much.
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.
I commute about an hour each way to work and listen to audio books enroute. Sometimes I don't want to get out of my car because I'm at a really good place!
I found myself drifting throughout the story. The general premiss was good, but it seemed to go on and on about nothing. Very disappointing.
Too boring... could not hold my interest. I tried to get through it, but eventually gave up.
The plot of this book was barely understandable.The chapters all seemed to run together and it was hard to figure who was who in the book.
