I’m gonna be honest, I only read this because I heard that it was gay 

I do not have the mental energy rn to write an actual review, so this is all you get :)

This book took me a lot of motivation to get through!
Even though I liked the story as a whole, I found some parts of the book a little boring and unnecessary and I didn’t understand why they were that important to the plot to be included in the book.
I guess I’m just not into classics, because every time I try to read one I find myself procrastinating finishing it.
But one thing I must add is that I found some very interesting quotes in this book, especially at the beginning and towards the end.

This book was definitely something different than what I expected before reading it. Although I understand how controversial it was for its time, and I enjoy the criticism of the author towards the British society and higher class, the endless misogyny -especially of the 10 first chapters- made it irritating to read. Once the story starts moving faster into Dorian's sins, it becomes more interesting. The ending was definitely poetic, but, overall, I expected more than I got from this book.

Quit around chapter 5, when the antisemitism hit. The story itself didn’t grip me and detailed antisemitic descriptions put me off of it too much to want to continue.
