Helpful Score: 2
In the beginning you'd think its just another boring affluent person's drama book and come to find out its more than that... Like, Moral Sci-fi Horror catching up to you. His writing has captivated me to remembering parts that were mentioned from the beginning of the book and finding out how they are effected toward the end.
I would say in general The Picture of Dorian Gray is equal to Dr.Jekyl and Mr.Hyde.
