the picture of Dorian Gray

is a REALLY REALLY good book.

One of those books that forces you to turn page after page. and kept me away from the Internet for the whole afternoon =O

It's got all the qualities of a classic without the tedium of Shakespearean lingo.

Plus it made me become such close friends with my dictionary. Never used it so much before xP well Mr Wilde kept using words like languid, tremulous, pathos.. gosh.

Storyline was sooo nice. yet tragic. Though some parts of the book are devoted to rants about [crooked] philosophy.

Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray is somewhat like Jane Austen's Fitzwilliam Darcy: incredible:)
