This is quite an interesting story. Dorian Gray is soon going to become wealthy, and being a handsome man, he agrees to sit for a portrait. What he doesn't know is that the artist helps to feed his vanity, and eventually there is an amazing connection between Dorian and the portrait - to do with his aging or not.

Fantastic read. This is a book that proves the point for me that the book is always better than the movie. The movie adaptations are fantastic from my point of view. The movies while being fantastic do not capture the story.

What a book! I found it hard to put down and ended up reading it in a day! I'm surprised this isn't higher up in the list.

I found it humorous how poorly this character is constantly portrayed in other media (movies being the worst offender). I was certainly surprised and, while I enjoyed the book, I felt a little let down that it wasn't darker.

This is my favorite book to date. I have read it four times in the last five years, and I will probably continue rereading it my whole life. This is the most beautiful book I have ever read. Each sentence is gorgeous and that they describe such beautifully jarring material makes it all the better.

This book surprised me. Very engaging. The downfall of Dorian's character as he falls further and further into sin is particularly interesting.

This is a wild ride. For a classic, it reads like a modern day page turner. I couldn't put it down.

Amazing! I loved it! This book deserves a lot more attention than it gets. Dorian Gray is such an interesting character (at least to the darker, more foolish side of ourselves). If you don't think so, then you're probably not being honest with yourself.
