65% done with The Picture of Dorian Gray

In the book Wilde tells us Dorian becomes obsessed with, he writes at great length about all the material trappings of opulence and great wealth. At first I was confused why he was going on and on and on about it but then the total obsession of Dorain begins to lull its spell on me, too.

The murder is handled quite nicely and seems so dramatic that it’s almost laughable in how fake it feels. Nothing here is real.
