read The Picture of Dorian Gray mobi ´ Paperback ☆ oscar wilde ✓ ❰Reading❯ ➸ The Picture of Dorian Gray Author Oscar Wilde – Written in his distinctively dazzling manner Oscar Wilde’s story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and In 1890 but though Wilde was attacked for the novel’s corrupting influence he responded that there is in fact “a terrible moral in Dorian Gray” Just a few years later the book and the aestheticmoral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned So I read all of Wilde's plays a couple of years ago but for some reason I never read this at the time This is probably the number one most reuested book for me to read So I read it Are ya happy now? ARE YA?I really rather enjoyed this Well obviously I mean did you honestly think I wasn't going to like The Picture of Dorian Gray? It's by Oscar Wilde for fuck's sake His prose is like spilled honey flowing across a wooden table and waterfalling onto the floor beneath The viscous liuid flowing slowly over the edge His plot perfectly paced moves slowly as we wade deeper and deeper into Dorian Gray's maniacal life Over the edge we go as everything goes wrong there's death there's pain there's long conversations about art We hit the floor as we finish and we see nothing but sweetness amassing around us as we escape from Wilde's prose Putting the book down you see the light has hit the stream and it glows and it shines and it sparkles and you stand there mesmorised by what you're witnessing and you put the book back on your shelf and feel sorry for the book you read next So yeah it's good

mobi ´ The Picture of Dorian Gray ↠ Oscar Wilde

Written in his distinctively dazzling manner Oscar Wilde’s story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the author’s most popular work The tale of Dorian Gray’s moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared This book reminded me why I hate classicsLike Frankenstein it starts out with a great premise what if a portrait bore the brunt of age and sin while the person remained in the flush of youth? How would that person feel as they watched a constant reminder of their true nature develop? And like Frankenstein it gets completely bogged down in uninteresting details and takes forever to get to the interesting bits Seriously in a 230 page novel the portrait doesn't even start to change until 100 pages in And it's so damn flowery Every time Lord Harry starts talking and believe me he likes to talk he's so witty Witty witty witty Ahahaha you're soooooooo worldly wise and charming And entirely cynical You just have a uip for everything don't you? Look reader look See Harry See Harry corrupt Dorian Corrupt Harry corrupt I actually ended up skimming most of the book I really thought about stopping but I hoped it would redeem itself by the end It didn't I should have just skipped to the last page So to save you dear reader the same pain I went through is the summary of Dorian Gray spoilers of courseDorian semi consciously makes Faustian bargain to transfer all his sins and signs of age to his portrait He sins and feels guilty about it but keeps doing it anyway He finally decides to get ride of the portraitevidence and stabs the painting Surprise it breaks the spell and he is left ugly old and dead while his portrait returns to its original form The end You can thank me later UPDATE 9312 Since this review is still around and kicking four years later I thought I might point like minded individuals to a new parody of classic literature to the tune of Call Me Maybe Call Me Ishmael
