Rory’s Book Club: The Picture of Dorian Gray

It’s probably a bad thing that I saw a lot of myself in “The picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde. Not to say that I evilly go about trying to ruin people’s souls. I also don’t have a scary portrait of myself hidden away. Plus, unlike Dorian Gray, I have my own opinions. Lord Henry Wotton was supposed to be the bad guy & his ideas were probably quite novel when written, but now they are pretty much common thinking. Ok, so I am nothing like this book, I was just trying to find something to write about it. This book was a solid 6 on a scale from 1-10. That score is so high mostly because I was expecting it to be scary (I don’t like scary books), & it wasn’t. That was really the highest point of the book “non scary”. The moral is “be careful what you wish for”. There I just saved you 204 pages. Thank me later.  I would be interested in anyone else’s thoughts on this book.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    Thanks for saving me the time and effort…I’m still working up the gumption to take on the poetry from the last review 🙂

    You’re doing your fellow Gilmore Girls fans a valuable service with this blog!

    I. Loved. This. Book. The ideas and theories, and absolutle insanities were entertainment enough regardless of the actual storyline. I am offended for Oscar Wilde that you actually said, “The moral is ‘be careful what you wish for,’ there I just saved you 204 pages.” That’s a little harsh of me; I realize everyone has their own opinions but mine is that you should give it another try. After all Richard Gilmore quotes that to really read a book, you must read it three times.

    i also loved this book, I have actually reccommended it to many people. I think that no one should skip reading this book because you have pointed out the moral of the story.
