    Such an amazing voice, without that I would not have continued with this book. So beautifully read

    This classic is not over-hyped. Indeed, it's far more intriguing and complex than the shallow references in modern cinema would lead one to believe. The characters are entertaining and the story engaging. The narrative is vivid and poetic. It is sometimes billed as an amoral piece and the introduction seems to advertise it as such. While this story is not for small children, it is ultimately a morality tale complete with a Christ figure and musings on sin, temptation, and redemption. So, if you're being scared away by the amorality, don't be. If you're being scared away by the moralizing, don't be. There are still enough irreverent shenanigans to hold your attention. Oscar Wilde was clearly a great mind. As this was his only novel he poured his genius into, it is worth the reader's time to hear him out. The reader does a very good job with the accents and characters but has difficulty with his French pronunciation. Be wary of that.
