“To have written such a book was nothing… to convince the world it was a work of fiction was a triumph!”
Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic story of hedonism and corruption, The Confessions of Dorian Gray imagines a world where Dorian Gray was real, and his friendship with Oscar Wilde once spawned the notorious novel. (from Goodreads)
I got this audiobook because is starred by one of Versailles’ main actors and I was feeling blue after the end of the second season. “I NEED MORE” was my basic thought. And it fulfilled this need, so that was good.
I really enjoyed listening to it. It takes Wilde’s character and gives him so many more stories! I liked their approach, the “cameos” from other well known literary characters and how they adapted Gray’s personality to different eras (they brought him up to the 21st century!). It really gave me second thoughts about my wish to live forever…
I’m looking forward to listen to the remaining stories!
