I'm nearly done with the play Lady Windemere's Fan by Oscar Wilde.   It's quite good..

Did you start it yet? My cousin, who knows my tastes as well as his own, recommended that to me more than once...I'm going to get it as soon as I'm done with the other two plays in the book.

No I haven't started it yet -- got too much work to do at the moment. But after I finish this blasted paper and get through my midterm on Wednesday, I'll let you know.

Definitely let me know! I'm very interested in it...Have no clue what it's about either, but James said it was his only novel and that I would adore it..

Oh, in that case I can tell you what it's about! There's this guy named Dorian Gray (duh) and he's sort of a conniving, selfish, narcissistic type of guy. He's extremely good-looking (if you've seen The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Stuart Townsend played Dorian Gray in that) and what happens is this guy paints this sort of magical, enchanted portrait for him. He doesn't know it, but every time he does something wrong it manifests itself in the painting instead of in him. The theory is that if you do something *evil* it'll show up somehow in your appearance (like you age rapidly or you develop a smirk or something) but with Dorian he stays good-looking and the painting just gets more and more creepy, and eventually he can't even look at it anymore and he moves it into the attic. That's the basic gist of it -- I don't know what happens in the end. It should be extremely cool though.

Wow, it sounds good! Don't tell me what happens in the end though, when you find out.

Of course not. I would never do that!

I loved 'the Picture of Dorian Gray' and I was reading 'the jealous Suitor' untill the story suddenly stopped.  I actually never read fanfic, but this one was recommended to me twice and I must say I was thouroughly enjoying it. (pssst: PHF/Rhonda, this is a hint  ) Well, I'll get back to Think! then....

Point taken. I am working on it, believe it or not, but I'm also working on an even older fic that I don't want to lose. (Through Time and Space) Don't worry, I'll update it eventually. I won't abandon that story, I promise! And thanks for saying you enjoyed it so much.

I'm currently reading 'Wuthering Heights' - Emily Bronte, 'Othello' - William Shakespeare, 'Jane Eyre' - Charlotte Bronte and 'Everything's Eventual' - Stephen King. I've also gotta start on 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and 'The Canterbury Tales' lol.

I can never read one book at a time, I'm always reading about six, lol.
