Honest depiction of the human condition
Enjoyed this exploration of moral decadence by Wilde - the first of his books that i’ve read. An honest depiction of the human condition. A reflection of hedonism of such relevance to our time. Dorian is the weakness in all of us..
Not a nice story but worth reading if nothing else than to make you stop and question your own moral nature...
