‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ Audiobook

Ben has recorded an audio version of Oscar Wilde’s novel ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. The audiobook is set to be released on September 26th and is already available for pre-order on Google Play and Amazon.com. The official synopsis can be found below.

This Penguin Classic is performed by Ben Barnes, star of the film adaptation of Dorian Gray. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Robert Mighall.

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.

I was wondering what happened to this audiobook he recorded a while ago… *lol* So awesome, they chose Ben to narrate the book! The circle is now complete… *heehee* 10 years after the movie came out! ;)
Can’t wait to read it again with Ben in my ears. <3 It's one of my favorite books, long before he played the role of Dorian Gray. :p

Thanks for the news Stephanie *hugs*

Fran talked about the old DG audiobook read by Michael Sheen with him, then he gave us some hints after I mentioned his upcoming audiobook and I am so happy that we were right :D

@Cindy …not that we were right, but he was charming and forthcoming and, as a woman of honor and PR integrity, I kept my word to keep it secret. He truly made my day. This is his time to share & shine.

Sorry, Michael Sheen…the King has reclaimed his Wilde throne. But, you’ll always have Gaiman/Pratchett and Good Omens. Unless…Neil taps Ben to narrate Stardust?

This makes me SO happy! I can NOT WAIT to hear him reprise Dorian Gray. OMG!!! Ecstatic doesn’t even cover it! I get a new copy of the novel every year. It’s one of the few books I have multiple copies of!
