About the book

image3.9/5.0

“The finest work of fiction by any American writer... No American novel comes closer than Gatsby to surpassing literary artistry, and none tells us more about ourselves” THE WASHINGTON POST   “A curious book, a mystical, glamorous story that's both boisterous and tragic” THE NEW YORK TIMES  “Fantastic proof that chivalry, of a sort, is not dead” LIFE MAGAZINE  It's the Roaring Twenties, and New York City is the place to be. Everything can be purchased, everyone can be bought. But, can you make money erase your past? It's the Roaring Twenties, and it is the time of over-indulgence. As far as the eyes can see and the mind can perceive, there are ostentatious displays of wealth and even more lavish displays of   decadency. Unapologetic decadency. But, does it ever stop? It's the Roaring Twenties, and the great American Dream has been perverted. It no longer stands for anything profound that resonates with people. But, does the Idealism even attempt to stop the Materialism? As more and more people lose themselves to the lure of money, ironically the only person who remains unaffected is Jay Gatsby, the enigmatic host of the most extravagant parties… In this definitive tale on American culture, Fitzgerald pits a chaste dream against the corrupting influences of wealth and comes up with an epic story that can only be defined as ‘A Great American novel’.

One of the greatest books of the time. Really explores the opulence and greed of this period.

Some say it’s the greatest book of all time. I disagree, but it’s still a great book.

Seemed like the author hadn’t had a real conversation with anyone in his life. It’s not awful but it’s hardly relatable in the slightest. Fitzgerald seriously fumbled the bag in terms of dialogue and character mannerisms. Personally wouldn’t recommend.

Timeless. Real. Relatable. An all time favorite.

An iconic, timeless classic. When Nick Carraway steps into Jay Gatsby’s lavish, ostentatious world, it’s hardly surprising that he develops an intrigue in the man behind it that mirrors our own. The Great Gatsby is a journey to the melancholy that often lies behind a man’s disguise, and one that offers much to a wide group of readers.

Gorgeous prose, a love story that transcends time and place, and a narrator that speaks to the soul with his incisive yet empathetic approach. “Gatsby, what Gatsby?”
