Wouahou... I loved it :) the passage about what the book deals with got on my nerve though... and I can't explain why, the last sentence is just amazing!
But the whole novel is just wonderfully written, you could fill a 'book of quotes' only with this one!


Voili voilo, vraiment très bon! et vous l'aurez compris, la dernière phrase m'a laissé baba, je crois bien que c'est la première fois que je relis une dernière phrase autant de fois :)

J'ajouterai tout de même que le style est magnifique! Franchement, very witty comme on dit!

Bookray!

Reçu jeudi, merci Crevure !
Je connais l'histoire et pourtant en cherchant dans ma mémoire, il me semble que je ne l'ai jamais lu !!
Un petit peu de V.O va me faire du bien !
J'espère ne pas trop trainer...
( merci pour les bonbons :-))

Ca y est j'ai terminé !!
Ce fut un peu long excusez moi...mais j'ai lu pas mal d'autres choses en parallèle pour le MBC par exemple.
J'ai trouvé les dialogues savoureux ( witty comme di Crevure :-)), et quand je comprennais toutje trouvais le livre épatant ! Par contre je pense être passée à côté de pas mal de choses à cause de la faiblesse de mon anglais....mais c'est en forgeant...:-) . Je le relirai certainement dans quelques années en français .
J'envoie à Raph, dés quej 'ai son adresse.

Well well, what is it to be said ... I knew the story from the very good movie that has been done out of the tbook in the the 1950's or so. One must admit that the style is very good, the sentences wonderfully written. I got a hard time getting really inside it though, and got bored quite a lot in the middle of the book, when O. Wilde begins to list us all he knows about pearls and embroideries... The end of the book, as I thought it had to be, is simply excellent, and the idea of the book itself is geniously good. One last comment, is that though this is a novel, and the author clearly express his view about what has to happen of Dorian Gray once his life is lived, the themes developped in the book are very immoral, even a century later. I can easily understand how this book has been a scandal in his time, and find myself bad reading it too...

I'll have it sent to e-marmotte as soon as possible.

Un Ray ressuscité! Merci BGL.

Et bien voilà, plus de 4 ans après m'être inscrite à ce ring, je viens de le finir... pas évident au début de rentrer dans l'histoire, le style, et la lecture en VO est un peu ardue. Mais waow, quel génie! Le livre est bourré de perles, tout est simplement fascinant.

Je dirais juste à propos de Dorian Gray : I don't have to like him to find him fascinating...

Je vais essayer de contacter Jacinta2000, car les autres BCers français de la liste ont tous arrêté le BC autant que je sache...
Merci Crevure.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, 4 years after registering for this ring, I finished it! Not easy to begin with to get in the story, the style, and the English used. But waow, what genius! The book is filled with pearls, absolutely fascinating.

I would just say about Dorian Gray : I don't have to like him to find him fascinating...

I have been wanting to read this book for a long time, so thank you KanaPoutz for sending it to me! :)

Journal Entry 14 by rifter from Isokyrö, Pohjanmaa / Österbotten Finland on Thursday, March 12, 2009
I loved this book! I don't really care for long descriptions, but the idea and plot of the book are wonderful. I also liked the way the book hints at the sins of Dorian Gray, but never really says outright what they are. A fascinating read! :)

Thank you for the books! It's a shame I haven't read this yet but there is so many books to read!

Journal Entry 17 by slipperbunny at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, April 04, 2012
I finally read this! I've seen the new movie of this and of course I new the story before that. It was a joy to read English like this and I'm pretty sure I've never read anything quite like this. There was only one chapter I disliked, it was really boring. Sometimes I had to read aloud 'cause the sentences sounded so beautiful. =)
