The Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library Classics)

The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde, Jeffrey Eugenides I love books about the British nobility and their lives of luxury. Hunting and horseback riding and going for visits then going to the club, it's all so foreign and romantic. If that wasn't enough, Dorian Gray with his endlessly young face and the creepy, witty Lord Henry with his counter-intuitive morality made this book a great read. It's psychologically and morally challenging but at the same time a lush and witty page-turner.
