Format: Paperback
Classic stories are usually classic for a reason. In this case, Wilde's Faustian horror tale still stands as one of the most beautifully written Gothic pieces. The ending is written so frenetically it's almost tangible. For anyone who has ever been accused of vanity, this book would likely be hauntingly familiar. This version is also in fairly large print, so it's a nice gift for those with poor eyesight.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 26, 2010
Format: Paperback
This well-known classic is a marvelous book for many reasons, including its masterful writing. Readers may also want to use this book to prompt them to think about the soul. Does it really exist? Is the soul, if it exists, affected by a person's behavior, becoming better and stronger if one is good and destroyed if one is bad? Wilde is refering to the soul when he speaks about Dorian's picture.

Interestingly, there is no mention of the soul in the Hebrew Bible, which apparently did not believe that it exists. The pagan Greek fourth century BCE philosopher Plato seemed to accept the existance of a soul, but his student the philosopher Aristotle did not believe that a soul as a separate basic personality of people exists. See my review of Aristotle's De Anima.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have seen "The Picture of Dorian Gray" which is based on this Oscar Wilde book. Compared to the movie, which
is not fair to the book, the book didn't evoke the emotion I would have expected from this author. Upon reflection,
I was surprised that the changes in the portrait were not more descriptive.

I hope other readers will see the crucial point this book makes. I certainly think it does. That's what truly counts!
