just not my book
I've tried a few times to listen to this book and never got past the sixth chapter. I know I haven't given it a full chance, and will probably come back to it later, but i am frustrated by it and feel, when i listen to it, that I am being given poor advice by an overconfident, pretentious nitwit. The character of dorian feels like a sounding board for his "wise" patron rather than a full character himself. It is chalk full of bad advice too and pithy statements that encourage the most shallow ways of life. I loved the importance of being ernest, and maybe it's just me this time, but i haven't been able to stick with this book so far.
