A remarkably handsome youth, Dorian Gray, meets Lord Henry Wotton and is corrupted into a life of terrible evil. Granted eternal youth, Dorian Gray lives a wild, dissipated life while his portrait grows old and haggard. Oscar Wilde's story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is one of his most popular works.

Originally I was listening to a LibreVox version, but since there are a lot of dialogues, it was difficult for me to keep tabs on who’s speaking if without good dramatisation, and I got confused all the time as to who’s said what, so I joined the audible membership.

Russell’s dramatisation is ingeniously done and is I think by far the best one. Each character a distinct tone, accent and rhythm.
