The Picture Of Dorian Gary - Oscar Wilde

I love Oscar Wilde's plays so I assumed I'd enjoy his novel. Instead, I find myself entirely unsympathetic to this book. I'm irritated by the self-dramatising privileged young men the story centre around, worn down by the constant flow of over-worked wit and unpleasantly surprised by how ponderously the action moves forward.


If I had a picture in my attic, it would be pulling its hair out and screaming silently at this point.
