Book: Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This is a classic, and so I came in with high expectations. Although I’ve never read an Oscar Wilde book before I’ve heard a lot about him.
Unfortunately, this book did not impress me. Perhaps I had built it up too much in my head. Although the basic premise was wonderful, it ended up being quite a slog for me to get through.
I didn’t really connect with any of the characters, and I felt the dialogue between them all was dreadfully pretentious and boring.
