Reviews of Picture of Dorian Gray, the (1891)

Review by datovs (2011-01-06)
Oscar Wilde manages to charmingly create a novel of debauchery and sin with a protagonist who evolves from a naive boy to a manipulative and hedonistic "god". Full of beautifully mastered language and immortal quotes, The Picture of Dorian Gray will always be remembered for how beautifully it is able to portray the ugly.

(This review refers to the 1891 version titled “The Picture of Dorian Gray”)

Review by goldenphoenix (2005-01-04)
The best book that I have ever read, bar none. This is the true definition of a classic; the preface says it all. Every reader will take something different away from reading this book, will either love it or hate it, but it needs to be read.

This book is still up for heavy debate -- we will never know its theme for sure.
