 Perdóname, señor por demorarme tanto leyéndolo. No es que no me gustara, es que sólo leo por gusto en el bus y mi ruta es muy corta.

Volviendo al libro: wao. like woooow. Cada personaje tiene una característica que lo domina sin hacerlo exhaustivo y la degradación del /alma/ de Dorian es brutal.

La trama es un 10/10 que explora los horrores de la naturaleza humana y básicamente qué tan malo puede ser alguien si la sociedad no lo sabe, o decide ignorarlo por su status social. Y me gustó mucho como manejó la dinámica en la que Harry y Basil son como el demonio y el ángel en los hombros de Dorian y cómo resulta.

Oscar Wilde se merece todos los besos que hay en su tumba.

“that i have given away my whole soul to some one who treats it as if it were a flower to put in his coat, a bit of decoration to charm his vanity, an ornament for a summers day.”
