The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde, Jeffrey Eugenides The Picture Of Dorian Gray raises very original and interesting questions about life, and shows how it is impossible to formulate a precise answer to them. This, in itself, makes the book great.

I consider Wilde one of the wittiest authors I've ever read. His intense sensitivity is remarkable, along with his expertise in portraying both emotions and circumstances. His paradoxical views about themes such as love, beauty, hedonism, evil, sin and passion, made me literally spellbound throughout the book.

I recommend the book to everyone. It is a beautifully written, razor sharp piece of literature that people will talk about in ages to come.
