Loved the book. Truly wonderful, one to savour and reread at a later stage.
Found this review on Goodreads, and it’s highly entertaining, especially the comments on the review itself. I found myself quite surprised at the number of people who disliked Lord Henry’s one-liner, which I considered as part of the charm of the novel. How would one get tired of witticism, however liberally peppered throughout the book as this was? (what the heck did I just write there?)
I’ve been reading a lot of classics in the past 12 months or so. Making up almost half of my fiction diet, primarily consumed during my daily commutes via audiobooks. Some turned out to be duds, some great, and others I just wonder how I ever got along so long without ever picking the book up before.
I’ll get along to writing about those eventually in this blog. I think. But right now I just wanted to say how utter wonderful The Picture of Dorian Gray is. Just can’t wait to finish the book (and I’m pretty close now).
