The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Barnes & Noble
The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition.
Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age.
Considered Fitzgerald's best work, The Great Gatsby is a mystical, timeless story of integrity and cruelty, vision and despair.
I was completely underwhelmed by this book; thank goodness it was short. The best part was listening to Anthony Heald narrate in this audiobook version.
