Coup de Coeur

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is definitely one of those great classics which will impress your teacher. It is the beautiful tale of a man, Dorian Gray, whose own vanity and narcissism leads him to wish that his portrait (painted by a close friend) bear the burden of age and sins, allowing him to remain forever young.
The elaborate style of Oscar Wilde makes it a pleasure to read but more importantly, I think it is an excellent choice for teenagers. Why? Because it is an age where our appearance and what other people think seem quite important and reading this book helps to put these things back into perspective, it did for me.

Alexia Bedat, Reviewer, Alexia's Picks

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.
