“The Picture of Dorian Gray” – Oscar Wilde

Unfortunately after finishing this book, I simply thought that it’s way too over-hyped. Yes, the idea of the story is an interesting one, the way it’s executed on paper though, leaves a lot to be desired. Another issue I had with the printed edition, was the fact that the ending was completely spoiled within the intro section (who does that??!!)

I’d rate it with 2 out of 5 stars, giving 1 additional star for the originality of the idea. The style itself wasn’t enjoyable to me though, it dragged on unnecessarily, it was too frilly & too decorated. Because of that I simply had to force myself to finish the book at some point, which is never a good sign.

★★☆☆☆ (2/5)
