It is silly of you, for there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about
After watching Penny Dreadful I realized it was time for me to finally read this book. It was a nice read, with very well constructed sentences. However I think I was expecting something a bit darker, if only because of all the times this character or hints to this character have been used.
While it was not what I expected it was an amazing construction and evaluation of what shallowness can do to us. A book first published in 1890 but whose dialogues can easily be used nowadays. A critic to hedonism, with wittiness flowing out of the main characters. Again it was not what I expected but it was lovely to read. My first read by Oscar Wilde but I can tell you already it won't be the last.
