My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This short piece of fiction is disturbing in all the ways that science fiction should be. I could see what was coming before Dorian could and I wanted to warn him. Then there was another part of me that thought he deserves it.
The title immediately reminded me of Oscar Wilde's classic and as I read this modern Dorian reminded me of the classic as well. He is vain and concieted and totally fine with using the people around him. I don't want to give away the ending, but this modern Dorian find himself shut out of his own life. As much as I didn't like him, I didn't want that ending for him either. However he made his bed, so now he must lie in it.
This is definitely worth the $2.99 because of its entertainment value and its re-readability. I only take away half a star because it is a smidge depressing.
I recieved an advance copy for an honest review. The above is my honest review of the work of a fabulous author.

I would really give it 4.5 stars.
I am normally skeptical of a modern take on a classic novel. This one is well done and there is no need for my hesitation. This one left me wondering about humanity and technology. It left me with a sadness for Dorian as well as a feeling that I just read a very well put together story.
