Throughout school, students are often required to read books that they know nothing about. This is one of a series of podcasts reviewing required high school reading materials. This video review is of The Picture of Dorian Gray, written by British author Oscar Wilde. This novel makes its readers question a lot of deep rooted assumptions and ask themselves questions that they normally would not. Anyone considering reading this or assigning it to students will enjoy this podcast and will get a brief but accurate summary.
