I was surprised to see how well this one held up. The theme of image versus action dictating societal worth feels all the more relevant today. Beautifully written, though it‘s by Wilde, so that should come as no surprise. Everyone knows the story of Dorian Gray (thanks, Penny Dreadful), but few have devoted the time to read the source material. Aside from flagging a bit in the middle, this is a classic well worth returning to.

My Year In Books collage on GoodReads is particularly appealing this year.

115 books read! Not bad.

Christmas time - movie time. As announced watching the Canterville Ghost, but the Patrick Stewart version. It‘s a bit shallow and not as funny as the novel, but okay. #oscarwilde #thecantervilleghost

Finished this one on a single flight. Never knew that a) the Canterville Ghost was this funny and b) it was writen by Wilde. I thought it was supposed to a gothic novel. Next aim: Watch the movie with Patrick Stewart as the Ghost. 🤗

They were evidently People on a low, material plane of existence, and quite incapable of appreciating the symbolic value of sensuous phenomena. 😂
