Great classic! The lessons of vanity and arrogance collide with morality in this tale from Oscar Wilde. Dorian Gray had only himself to blame. what bothered me about Dorian was how easily influenced he was and how immoral Lord Harry appeared to be. This book was a quick read and I appreciate that. Wilde's prose, though a little formal at times, was exquisite in showing details within the pages of his mind. Definitely a must-read!
