Publisher's Summary

In the wealthy and vain hedonist Dorian Gray, London painter Basil Hallward has found his muse. Only when the portrait of Dorian begins to age, while the man himself remains untouched by time, do they realize they may have made a deal with the devil.

Oscar Wilde's only novel takes a witty, philosophical, and harrowing look at our obsession with youth and the price we pay for it.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Picture of Dorian Gray, this edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray includes editorial revisions.

A Wilde classic!

Are good and evil inherent or learned, can a person who does terrible things still be good, and is getting old really that bad?

One to be appreciated but not enjoyed

Well-read, and I can appreciate the plot, but like so many other "classics," it's just sooo boring.

Great Job!

Narrator is amazing. He really draws you into the world of the story.

The story is an awesome classic. It started a bit slow for me, but quickly I was immersed in it and didn't want to put it down.

Sinfully delicious !!

Oscar Wilde thralled me with every word. Definitely earned a place in my heart as one of my favorite books of all time <3
