The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby Summary

The Roaring Twenties are in full effect in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s riveting classic. Man-about-town Jay Gatsby seems to have it all, including loads of money and a massive mansion where he hosts wild, extravagant parties every Saturday. But Gatsby’s missing one thing: Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life, the one who got away.

The Great Gatsby explores the impossible, but uniquely human, longing to return to the past and the costs associated with chasing the American Dream. It’s a beautifully written, entertaining read with timeless emotional appeal.

Not worthy reading1 star

None of it made sense to me, and could not persuade myself to go on reading it.15


Love love love5 star

One of the greatest pieces of writing in the history of man55


Wow.5 star

Gorgeous book — absolutely a classic, and for a reason. I’ve never read this novel before but, for some reason, I found myself to be entirely drawn to it by reasons unknown to me. The artistry of The Great Gatsby is so magnificent and it stands as the original “would you rather be rich in cash and loneliness, or poor in money but alone?” I’m going to go cry now. I am in love with this masterpiece.55


Classic5 star

A master of the descriptive narrative.55
