Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexia Bartling | 2/16/2014

    " I read this book every few years and always find a new moment to love! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dwaine Taylor | 2/14/2014

    " This was the first book I read that open my mind the the concept of investigating the human conscious in literature. Incredibly written, profoundly interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frieda | 2/14/2014

    " Thrilling and self-indulgent, this classic holds one's attention to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/26/2014

    " of course i was in high school when i first read this short fiction and have reread it several times over the years but never seriously. this time -- for whatever reason -- i have read it slowly, carefully and remain impressed with oscar wilde's insights and story construction. a man of his times yet his words can resonate in a reader today. most consistently i find wilde's works to be engaging and often enough excellent cautionary tales disguised as modern stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbey Elsbernd | 1/23/2014

    " I love Oscar Wilde because he's so goshdarned snarky - and this book was no exception. It's Wilde at his most sinister, and alarmingly accessible to a modern reader despite the test of time. Brilliant message, and clever wordplay make this a classic that feels current. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Miller | 1/21/2014

    " I enjoyed it, it was wonderful and witty to read. Wordy, yes. But that is how most older books are. If you like something fast paced and action packed then this is not for you. But if you like a deep look into the slow and steady corruption of someone's soul then you will like this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck Sheppard | 1/16/2014

    " A very well crafted and original story. I think any other stories about paintings taking on supernatural qualities must come from this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 1/3/2014

    " I enjoyed the book immensely! It's definitely a book I will talk about with my friends! That said, I was a little dissapointed by the end, but not enough for it to truly take away from the book as a whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiril | 12/19/2013

    " Though dark and mysterious, it is lovely and exciting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniela | 11/6/2013

    " Fascinating look into vanity, self indulgence and egotism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 10/27/2013

    " Highly enjoyed reading this and would regard it as an essential classic. However, I don't think it quite lives up to its hype. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jade Notfound | 8/3/2013

    " More like fifty Shades of Dorian Grey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/22/2013

    " I don't know there is anything I can say that hasn't been said before about this book. It has been on my Classics 'to read' for a while and it was worth my time and attention. A truly great writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 1/28/2013

    " A bit slow to start with but picks up. An absolute stinker of a chapter eleven. Brilliantly written but a list that takes up 10% of the novel. From there on though it's great. Should have read it last spring. Better late than never. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Elliott | 1/1/2013

    " A very good read. Thought provoking, beautifully written, I found it hard to put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sylvia | 5/4/2012

    " I loved it. Love Wilde and how he was in tune with his darker side which is so evident in Grey's character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ana Zeferino | 3/7/2012

    " I read this book during college. Amazing story. Something similar to humans desires and learnings... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Hyde | 2/27/2012

    " I very much enjoyed this book. It has more sharp, witty one liners than any book I've ever read, and its worth reading for that alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.V. Hunt | 6/11/2011

    " An insightful story but a little wordy. But being wordy is what I expect out of older books. In some of the areas the descriptions seem to be pointless or go nowhere, but the actual story is well told. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelaswing | 5/24/2011

    " very witty book, definitely one to be read over and over. All Wilde says is the truth, no matter how paradoxical "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/24/2011

    " I am yet to read a bad Oscar Wilde book. He is simply amazing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thara | 5/24/2011

    " I'm glad I finally read it. I don't enjoy stories where the protagonist is a villain, especially when the author obviously has so much sympathy for the character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 5/23/2011

    " The dated style of prose makes it a slow read, but the story is a classic. Knowing that Oscar Wilde was struggling with his sexuality adds an element that gives depth to the conflict. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/22/2011

    " I found much of this difficult to read in this day and age, especially the epigramatic dialog but the rest was very good. Not my first time and would recommend as an important classic to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drucilla | 5/20/2011

    " This novel isn't as well known as Dracula or Frankenstein but it is just as good. In some ways, it is darker than those two as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremiah | 5/20/2011

    " Macabre version of Thomas Hardy. Memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/19/2011

    " Had a hard time finishing it. Maybe it's because I really don't like him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johanne | 5/19/2011

    " It was very good, a bit slow in the beginning but the ending was really unexpected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 5/19/2011

    " I feel the urge to add that I have read this in three languages. I guess this sums up how much I like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilde | 5/19/2011

    " I've read this book a couple of times over the years and have always enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jose A. | 5/18/2011

    " Exquisite... the word that came to my mind after the last page of this wonderful piece of art. I can't really say much, but its interesting how everything goes around the arts, the beauty and the greed.

    Go and read this, period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Syreeta | 5/18/2011

    " I love Oscar Wilde's style of writing. Believe it or not, this is the first time I've read anything by him, and now I am itching to read everything he wrote. "
