Spectacular 1 mai 2005
Par Charlie Gordon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
A wonderful blend of morality and wit, set in the background of beautiful phrasing and truly enjoyable descriptions.

This book is very clever because it starts you off on par with Dorian - the main character - who then has his youthful innocence. Bit by bit, you find yourself fully strung on by the book's manipulative character who lures you in to the concept that everlasting beauty is more important than a beautiful soul.

Though predictable, the understanding the author demonstrates for the boy's psychological qualms, which have direct parallels to our lives at present, makes this a spiritually moving read.

The wit and mode he uses to drive his message home are second to none.

Humorous, witty, insightful, and evocative, it's a must read.

Picture is an Aesthetic Masterpiece 18 février 2005
Par Robert E. Murena Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Oscar Wilde as leader of the literary wing of the Aesthetic Movement is by most accounts among the most bohemian of the Victorian English writers. Just looking at pictures taken of him reveals his fascination if not preoccupation with the beautiful and luxurious. Reading any work of his we quickly become privy of his style which strives for beauty and quality grammar. His themes revolve around the lives of the well off in the late 19th century and the "Picture of Dorian Grey" is a prime example of Wilde's Work. It is a full-bodied novel that fully takes itself seriously and builds up to a great climax. The plot is relatively simple and while it gives itself away quite early we read on, luxuriating in the beautiful prose and excitement about what's to come. The theme of eternal youth is something we can all relate to and in this world of extreme make over and botox it is a very relevant theme

The book reads quickly and Wilde doesn't waste the readers time developing scenes even though some description approach the extreme. And though Wilde tends to be more philosophical in this work than in others, it fits the story and is not ruinous to the overall effect. This book is a necessary stop along the tour of 19th century English literature and it is a wonderful one. If you enjoy it I recommend you check out some of his short stories: they are quick and some are very good. I recommend this version since it is inexpensive and holds up quite well (I am destructive to books).

"For Youth is the One Thing Worth Having" 4 juin 2006
Par Kalie A. Gipson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
"How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June...If it were only the other way! If it where I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that-for that-I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! I would give my own soul for that!"

Meet Dorian Gray. He has the perfect look. He shines with such youth and beauty that he amazes everyone he comes in contact with. According to Lord Henry Wotton, however, he does not fully realize what he has. When their mutual friend, Basil Hallward, a painter, decides to paint a portrait of Dorian, he ends up capturing that youth and beauty almost perfectly in his painting. Dorian is mezmerized by it. After listening to Lord Henry's philosophy about how youth and good looks are more important than being good-hearted, Dorian claims he would do anything to let the picture grow old and decay, while he will stay young and beautiful for the rest of his life.

It is only a downward spiral for Dorian after that. He continues to believe in the ways of Lord Henry. His face remains perfect and unlined as he commits sin after sin. The only way anyone would have known Dorian's true colors would be to take a look at his portrait; for his face on the portrait would take on the age lines and the sinister look that Dorian truly should bare in the flesh. The sight of his picture horrifies Dorian so deeply that he locks it up, and would not let anyone look at it. Dorian himself is too afraid to look at it. However, this does not stop Dorian from listening to Lord Henry and believing the same way he does.

Overall, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a great novel. The wit, humor, horror, and philosophy all comes together to make this story exactly what the description of the book says: timeless. The philosophical views of Lord Henry alone will make you question your own outlook on life. The plot is somewhat predictable, and so is the ending, but this doesn't keep Oscar Wilde's only full-length novel from being a great read. Also included in this book are his short stories, Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, The Happy Prince, and The Birthday of the Infanta. Go ahead and pick this book up and start reading.

Thinking about Dorian... 30 mai 2002
Par "amesf" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This is a book for the mind! Extremely philosophical, extremely thought provoking! One character in particular talked all in philosophy. There were things he said that would practically keep me up all night thinking. This book is also a good example of how a bad influence can turn a good person into a down right evil one. But the way Oscar Wilde chooses to portray that in the story is so creative. Also I didn't find this book to be as predictable as most tend to be. I thought the ending was especially unpredictable and creative. The only complaints I have are that in a couple parts it got a little bit slow and it was pretty morbid. I do like happy endings and this book traveled further and further from a happy ending with every page. I guess that's okay because the point Wilde was trying to make was not happy. So overall I rate this book high and recommend it to anyone interested!

The Picture Of Dorian Gray 28 février 2005
Par Atticus Finch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
An interesing and confusing novel. A book I actually enjoyed reading. I don't like to read much, except for the occassional magazine article from Rolling Stone. The book made me want to keep reading. The beginning isn't very good, to me anyways, but it does help you get into the book. There are "third-person" sections that can get pretty confusing, so i suggest folling along. Since it was written in 1891, there is a little Olde-English, but not nearly as much as Othello,by Shakespeare, and not to much to where you don't understand it. One last thing- don't get the urge to skip a page in the beginning, because you will be completely thrown off.
