Dorian Gray is meaningful
If you are looking for an adventurous plot heavy book then this isn’t the book for you, it’s very good, and instead of plot and the enticing story we’re use to from modern novels this novel focuses more on physiological ideas and morals. It’s a very good novel but do not expect an exciting read. I’ve very much enjoyed this book and suggest it for anyone who looks for more in a book then just a story
Oscar Wilde does a wonderful job of depiction and eloquently describing Dorian. It is my opinion though it became a bit exasperating. It is oh too obvious Dorian’s plight but even more so his demise which came about very abruptly.
It’s a good novel
I liked the novel and it was very interesting. It had drama, romance, fantasy and tragedy. I recommend reading it.
