Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray - a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash-up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st-century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!
First published to sensational scandal amidst accusations that the novel was hedonist, unclean, and depicted distorted views of morality The Picture of Dorian Gray was a hit back in the day. In 1890 the Daily Chronicle wrote that Wilde's novel “will taint every young mind that comes in contact with it". Well Victorian critics, gird your loins and prepare to meet Audrey Ember’s Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray: hotter, lewder, sexier, steamier, and more morally corrupt than Oscar Wilde’s original story!Rediscover this celebrated novel as it traces the moral degeneration of a beautiful young Londoner seduced by art and beauty into a cruel and reckless pursuer of pleasure.
Woah this book is morbid! First of all this could have been about Christian Grey's great grandfather in 1890 England but much darker. I was crinching through the whole book its completely disturbing. Young vibrant man gets sucked into a distrubing life of 19th century type of BDSM by a devil incarnate older woman. Dorian still loves and wants his pure hearted Rosemary even though he has very dark needs. Helen ( the devil incarnate) breaks the secret on why they cannot be together. Dorian soul saving Rosemary is forever gone to him and he become even more disturbing, there is no light at the end of the tunnel in this or happy ending in this book. I feel like I need a shower after hearing this book...and not in a good way either, I feel gross.
Credit worthy...only if american pyscho tickles your fancy! other then that NO!

creative adaptation of Dorian Gray. interesting characters, imagery, metaphors, etc. more intense than 50 Shades of Gray and less vulgar than Marquise De Sade/American Psycho
Would you listen to Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray again? Why?
Yes. It was an interesting take on the story and shocking at the same time. I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to see what would happen next.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray?
I think the ending had to be the most memorable. You saw it coming but you still couldn't believe it happened.
What three words best describe Bruce Mann’s performance?
Not so much. I really didn't feel his narration did the story justice. Some times it was quite annoying
