Book: The Picture of Dorian Gray.

It seems fair to count this a reading a book, though I read it on my iPhone. Oscar Wilde composed this novel to be full of witticisms, but they do the book a disservice: were it not for all of this dialogue, the work would run more smoothly.

The premise is a famous one. Dorian Gray never ages a day, instead, the portrait that was painted of him ages. In fact, it’s not just the ravages of time that are transferred to the portrait: this is where the story is at its most interesting.

Worth reading, just to see what all the fuss is about.
