The first half of this book is tedious. Wilde's uses these long monologues to establish characterization which get a bit tiresome. But stick with it. I read the second half in 1 night because it was such a page turner. All the sin that the painting depicts of Dorian is never revealed but we get a sense of how the picture became so grotesque in the second half. I won't give it away but I assure you, if you can slog through the first half the second is that much more rewarding.

My first Wilde work and what started me on this insane love affair. It's a great peice of classic lit and I suggest it for anyone interested in classic works or works by Irish writers.

I thought I could handle overwhelming decadence and debauchery, but oh, was I wrong! Excellent read, though!

Dorian Grey is a dark and psychological look at a beautiful boy who goes very, very, bad.
