Publisher's Summary

The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde’s classic tale set in modern times and told as he would have done…had he dared. It is a dark and twisted story filled with moral decline, depravity, sex, and ruthless blackmail. This story is not a mere retelling of Wilde’s tale, but strikes out in new directions, taking the listener on an unpredictable journey with an unknown destination. 
Dorian Gray is a young, college freshman, attending his first semester at Indiana University. There he meets Caleb Black, who becomes his obsession. While pursuing Caleb, Dorian acts on the advice of an older acquaintance, Seth, who encourages him to indulge in all life has to offer. Dorian’s world is filled with delights; it is a buffet of sexy, young college boys all Dorian’s for the taking. While Dorian satisfies his desires and lust, he grows ever closer to his destiny and the truth of the portrait that calls to him from the darkness.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is a tale of love, lust, depravity, romance, friendship, and Dorian’s inner struggle to save his own soul. This novel includes mature content and is not recommended for younger listeners.

A marvelous listen!

It’s refreshing to hear an audio book with such clear diction. I can understand every word. Yet, he still is able to bring out the characters in his performance. Lou Petrella has such a pleasing quality to his voice, I could listen to it for hours. And he has a fun, mischievous quality to his performance on this book. He reads it like he’s telling you a deep, dark secret. Fun!

Contemporary and Steamy Variation of the Original

The original author of The Picture of Dorian Gray could never have written the story in the way that he probably would have today, for obvious reasons. This re-telling of the story in modern times and with a redemptive ending is as deliciously gripping as it is explicit. Dorian's character with its flaws and its virtues are nicely developed and wonderfully narrated throughout. Dorian's friends, Seth and Dalton, are his id and superego. They compete throughout the story for Dorian's favor. Brought to life by Petrella's skillful narration they are the angel and devil on Dorian's shoulder whispering in his ear to influence his fate.
