A review by dakotuhhh
The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde

dark mysterious tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


If you can look past some of the things that didn’t age well the book is really good! The first half of the book is a bit slow but it’s a really nice read and Wilde has such a beautiful way of describing scenery.

The second half is incredibly dark and that’s where he really hooks you. I loved the ending.
