The Picture of Dorian Gray Oscar Wilde read online review & book description:

Dorian is a good-natured young man until he discovers the power of his own exceptional beauty. As he gradually sinks deep into a frivolous, glamorous world of selfish luxury, he apparently remains physically unchanged by the stresses of his corrupt lifestyle and untouched by age. But up in his attic, hidden behind a curtain, his portrait tells a different story.

    This is a great novel, of course, but you don’t want this version. It’s the censored, 13 chapter version that is missing key characters, plot, wit, etc. Look for the 20 chapter version that includes Wilde’s preface.
  • Fascinating, beautifullay written story of a depraved soul

    This is a masterpiece of imaginative writing. It is a strange story that seems at times to condone the sins of a detestable character, but the storyline and ending seem to clearly warn against these sins. Regardless of its likeliness as a possible story, it is fascinating, beautifully written and deep.

    Dorian Gray is majestical. I chose to read this after watching the Penny Dreadful TV series. Out of all the old horror/fantasy stories I’ve read, this one takes the cake. Very easy to read compared to other older books. Of course, Oscar Wilde helps a ton with his use of a dreamy imagery no matter what the tone of the scene being told is.

    The Picture of Dorian Gray really is a fascinating story. I just finished reading the whole book for the first time. I grew up knowing of the story, but had never actually read it for myself. Oscar Wilde paints such vivid pictures with great detail. I highly recommend this book.

    Wow. I started slowly, for it took a time to get used to the language, but shortly thereafter, I was completely enthralled!

    I read this because it was declared a masterpiece. I think it is a good book, with a very well crafted storyline. That being said, it was also wordy, overworked, and tedious. It is worth reading but with expectations of it being only average.
