The Picture of Dorian Gray

I just finished reading the classic gothic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray this afternoon and, while I ignorantly went into the novel thinking that it would be horror, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not as if I was wanting something that would keep me up at night in fear. I wanted something that fit in with Halloween and this book fit in perfectly. The creepy thought of the story is enough to keep you thinking and I enjoyed most of the book. There was a long chapter in the middle that I found myself wishing to be over, but apart from that, I greatly enjoyed the book. It's not too long and it captivates you so it's hard to put down.
