This is a book I have heard as a Talking Classic and seen in an old B&W
film. It struck me as being very much written in the style of a play with lots
and lots of dialogue. I was interested to see that when Wilde described the
scene at the beginning in the Artists house he was using lots of colour. I did
not enjoy the chapter which link the start of his corruption to the end of it’s
life. It just seemed to be long and pointless description. I got bored after a
while and started skipping it. The story itself was excellent and I loved the
character of Lord Henry with his interesting views on the world.
