The Picture of Dorian Gray

Now and then, if you know the lifestyle of some authors it becomes evident in their writing.

Dorian Gray is a handsome and dashing yet vain and morally corrupt man in late-19th century England. A recent portrait of him has extended his vanity, but he notices something odd about the painting...

Man, Dorian's a pompous jerk. Even his charm didn't win me over, I'll admit it. But apart from that, I liked The Picture of Dorian Gray. It took a while for the book to become interesting, but once it did I was hooked. Honest to God, The Picture of Dorian Gray creeped me out to no end.

My Rating: ****

  1. It's an excellent book...Oscar Wilde was god. I thought it was quite fantastic since the first page.
    The films haven't done it much justice though, especially the new one.


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
