"The Picture of Dorian Gray" tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Espousing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfilment of the senses.

Honey you don't know the meaning of bad books until you've seen the darker side of Wattpad.

Art is useless, but it is also art that gives a little more color to this bleak world.

Truth. All existence is absurd, all meanings are meaningless, ALL ART IS QUITE USELESS.

Its the most intriguing yet beautiful prolouge I have ever read
"It's the spectator ,and not life,that art really mirrors",whoa!That line's a revelation!
If you want a bad book just look at all the cliches on Wattpad.
