Basil, who up until now was a mediocre painter after meeting Dorian Gray a young Adonis, was inspired to create a masterpiece of which he puts himself into. Against Basil's wishes, Dorian Gray is influenced by Basil's friend Lord Henry. Dorian looks at his portrait and realizes that while the portrait will stay young forever, he will grow old; so Dorian makes a wish that if only he could stay young forever and the portrait can age.

At first Dorian does not realize his wishes been granted. He falls in love with a beautiful young actress who is every woman that Shakespeare ever wrote about. But once again due to Lord Henry's influence, he realizes that she's just a common girl.

Starting with absent-minded acts Dorian slowly sinks into debauchery. And with every new act his picture becomes more grotesque while Dorian stays is young and as innocent looking as the day his picture was painted.
What will become of Dorian?
What will become of Dorian's painting?
What would you do if you were Dorian?

Oscar Wilde paints a picture himself as he describes Dorian Gray's dilemma. And we as readers travel with Dorian as each decision is made. In some places in the story Oscar Wilde seems to drag on and on with detail; however we find that this detail is necessary to set the next scene.

Oscar Wilde himself led a risky life that lead to a jail sentence; is attitudes can be seen in the dialogues in this book.

A good story well written.

In this novel, we can follow the adventures of a young gentleman's first arrival in town in the XIX century's England. There he makes himself two friends: the sarcastic Lord Henry and the well-known artist Basil, who will paint his portrait. The two will change his life forever. Indeed, by making him discover other way of thinking and the stupidity of convention, Lord Henry will lead him to live a life of debauchery, while in result of a foolish wish, his portrait will age and decay instead of him, allowing him to live every single one of his without the fear of consequences (the portrait takes malicious features instead of him).

I read the first half of the book last year and had to stop because of exams. It's only after seeing the last film adaptation of the book last week that I went back to the book. While the first half of the film is rather truthful, (apart for the addition of some scene of debauchery very well play that are only vaguely mention in the book), the other half makes some important changes to the script. I sincerely prefer the film end which have more action while the book only end by description of Dorian's state of mind, which could become a bit long.
It's still an enjoyable reading, I particularly love Henry and the way he expresses the most cynical opinions about the British society.

I liked the style of the descriptions, the wonderful portraits of the protagonists. The way the devil works on innocent and self centered youth and individuals.
I find it quite efficiently moralistic.
I disliked 2 small lengthy parts.

Lorsque l'on commence le livre, on a envie de savoir la suite, même si le décor est dépassé l'intrigue reste intéressante, le thème du plaisir et du bonheur est traité de manière très habile, bref, on accroche

L'histoire est excellente et il y a de bons mots, cependant les personnages sont assez cyniques et mettent mal à l'aise. La morale sera sauve à la fin.

Je connaissais le roman d'Oscar Wilde et souhaitais le relire. Donc pas de problème. L'achat sur Amazone pour une tablette est simple et rapide

Fascinating ! What an interesting subject to think about: The mysterious influence of the search for beauty and youth on us...

Un classique découvert tard, pour mon plus grand bonheur, sage derrière les apparences du futile. Une leçon sur la vie.

Tres bon livre, un classique, rien a dire. Tout le monde devrait le lire au moins une fois dans sa vie.
