Yeah, I read this book a few years ago. It was great!
The really weird thing about it was that even though I know I hadn't read the book before, I knew a bunch of stuff about it, like how it ended. I
can only conclude that maybe I saw a movie about it once long ago or I read another book that completely ripped off the story, or something.
Actually, it wasn't that anything bad would happen if he saw the picture. Dorian was just simply repulsed by the image. He didn't like being
reminded of how old the picture was getting, or after he kills that one person, the blood on the picture. He did sneak into his attic or wherever it
was stored and look at it a couple of times though.
It's too bad Oscar Wilde never did any other novels. He did do some plays and short stories and things like that, but I've never read anything else
by him, since I'm usually more of a novel and nonfiction kind of guy.
