Classic Monday: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

248 pages

Dorian is a good-natured young man until he falls in with the cunning and quick-tongued Lord Henry, who unveils to Dorian the power of his own exceptional beauty. As he gradually sinks deeper into a glamorous and decadent world of selfish luxury, he seems to remain physically unchanged in spite of age and the stresses of his corrupt lifestyle. But in his attic, hidden behind a curtain, his portrait tells a different story.

What if a portrait reflected all of your inner sins and vices? Thats what happens to Dorian Grey in this novel. This is a dark novel that examines the human soul and its darker nature. It also shows that what you may see on the outside may not reflect whats on the inside. This is an exceptional classic that is extremely well written and thought-provoking. 


  1. I've never read this book, but I've always meant to. I actually have a pet bunny rabbit named Dorian Gray (he was named before he came to me) and people always ask me if I've read the book. It would be nice to be able to say Yes lol

    1. LOL its a really great book. But I'm sure your rabbit doesn't mind that you haven't read it ^_^
