Dorian is a good-natured young man until he discovers the power of his own exceptional beauty. As he gradually sinks deep into a frivolous, glamorous world of selfish luxury, he apparently remains physically unchanged by the stresses of his corrupt lifestyle and untouched by age. But up in his attic, hidden behind a curtain, his portrait tells a different story.


  • Fascinating, beautifullay written story of a depraved soul

    By DanJazzPiano
    This is a masterpiece of imaginative writing. It is a strange story that seems at times to condone the sins of a detestable character, but the storyline and ending seem to clearly warn against these sins. Regardless of its likeliness as a possible story, it is fascinating, beautifully written and deep.

    Dorian Gray is majestical. I chose to read this after watching the Penny Dreadful TV series. Out of all the old horror/fantasy stories I’ve read, this one takes the cake. Very easy to read compared to other older books. Of course, Oscar Wilde helps a ton with his use of a dreamy imagery no matter what the tone of the scene being told is.
  • Disappointed

    I expected more from this book that so many other works of literature and film make reference to.
  • Classic Read

    The Picture of Dorian Gray really is a fascinating story. I just finished reading the whole book for the first time. I grew up knowing of the story, but had never actually read it for myself. Oscar Wilde paints such vivid pictures with great detail. I highly recommend this book.

    Wow. I started slowly, for it took a time to get used to the language, but shortly thereafter, I was completely enthralled!
  • Not a masterpiece to me

    By Yellowyak2
    I read this because it was declared a masterpiece. I think it is a good book, with a very well crafted storyline. That being said, it was also wordy, overworked, and tedious. It is worth reading but with expectations of it being only average.
