    Oh Gatsby, you old sport, you poor semi delusionally hopeful dreamer with some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life , focusing your whole self and soul on that elusive money colored green light a dream that shatters just when you are this close to it Jay Gatsby, who dreamed a dream with the passion and courage few possess and the tragedy was that it was a wrong dream colliding with reality that was even wrong and deadly Just like the Great Houdini the association the title of this boo [...]


    The Great Gatsby is your neighbor you re best friends with until you find out he s a drug dealer It charms you with some of the most elegant English prose ever published, making it difficult to discuss the novel without the urge to stammer awestruck about its beauty It would be evidence enough to argue that F Scott Fitzgerald was superhuman, if it wasn t for the fact that we know he also wrote This Side of Paradise.But despite its magic, the rhetoric is just that, and it is a cruel facade Behind [...]


    This is my least favorite classic of all time Probably even my least favorite book, ever I didn t have the faintest iota of interest in neither era nor lifestyle of the people in this novela So why did I read it to begin with well, because I wanted to give it a chance I ve been surprised by many books, many a times Thought this could open a new literary door for me.Most of the novel was incomprehensibly lame I was never fully introduced to the root of the affair that existed between Gatsby and D [...]


    After six years of these heated and polarized debates, I m deleting the reviews that sparked them Thanks for sharing your frustrations, joys, and insights with me, goodreaders Happy reading In love and good faith, always,Savannah


    Jay Gatsby, you poor doomed bastard You were ahead of your time If you would have pulled your scam after the invention of reality TV, you would have been a huge star on a show like The Bachelor and a dozen shameless Daisy types would have thrown themselves at you Mass media and modern fame would have embraced the way you tried to push your way into a social circle you didn t belong to in an effort to fulfill a fool s dream as your entire existence became a lie and you desperately sought to rewri [...]


    Over drinks, I ve observed like so many smart alecks that much of The Great Gatsby s popularity relies heavily on its shortness At a sparse 180 pages, Fitzgerald s masterpiece could be argued to be the Great American novella Gatsby, like so many other short classics, is easily readable, re readable, and assessable to everyone from the attention deficient young to mothers juggling a kid, a career, and a long held desire to catch up on all those books they should have read but haven t gotten aroun [...]


    DAISY BUCHANAN IS A GIFT TO READERS EVERYWHERE AND THE HERO OF THE GREAT GATSBY, FOR SURE, NO QUESTIONS, FIGHT ME IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU THINK YOU RE BOLD A Thinkpiece by Meemmareadstoomuch.wordpressI ve known that Daisy effin rocks since I first read this book Fun fact my first read of this took place in the back of the family minivan when I was 13, on a roadtrip to, like, Disney World or something While thoughts of princesses and mouse shaped ice cream bars danced in my siblings heads, I was r [...]


    There was one thing I really liked about The Great Gatsby.It was short.


    Casual, self absorbed decadence, the evaporation of social grace, money calling all the shots and memories of the past holding people hostage from the future that lies before them Yes, Mr Fitzgerald has nailed it and written one of THE great American novels This book was a surprise I LOVED it and all of the deep contradictions swimming around its heart At once a scathing indictment on the erosion of the American Dream, but also a bittersweet love letter to the unfailing optimism of the American [...]


    The eh GatsbyClassic Yes THE great American novel Hmph, so I heard I suppose it should make one interested, or at least feel compelled to read something or re read as is the case here when it has classic and everyone else loves it stamped all over it And has a movie made out of it, though what beloved novel hasn t these days Of course, I originally read FSF s Gatsby because I was expected to for a high school English class So, even though I was never the type to do homework, I read The Great G [...]


    Most Americans are assigned to read this novel in high school Few American high schoolers have the wherewithal to appreciate this novel in full I certainly did not It is on a shortlist of novels that should, every 5 years starting at age 25, return to any American s required reading list.First things first The opening of The Great Gatsby its first 3 4 pages ranks among the best of any novel in the English language, and so too does its ending Both for their content and for their prose, the latter [...]

    The True Value of Monopoly MoneyCapitalism tends towards monopoly No capitalist welcomes a competitor or rival Having attained wealth, the desire is to retain it, not to concede it to increase it, not to share it A competitor is perceived as a threat, and will be treated like a virus invading an otherwise healthy, but vulnerable, body.The Great American Dream The Great Gatsby is often described as a paean to the Great American Dream.This Dream supposedly sustains the average American It offers t [...]

    I just spent three days being read to by Jake Gyllenhaal and it was absolutely wonderful I took Jake with me for long Summer walks, to the grocery store, Trader Joe s, and let me not forget the ten minutes I spent driving around the parking lot of Target, not for a better parking space, but to listen to Jake read The Great Gatsby to me My only regret is that this fabulous experience is over SighI ve read the book and watched both versions of the movie but this is by far my favorite experience wi [...]

    My essay on The Great Gatsby and reificationWhat is there to love about The Great Gatsby F.Scott Fitzgerald s writing here leaves only a little to be desired The characters themselves seem shallow and empty, lacking in morality and you could take all this into consideration and instantly report well that s a shallow book if ever I ve heard of one However it can also be seen that, The Great Gatsby is a scathing social commentary that explores the fruitlessness of pursuing dreams Particularly drea [...]

    Se me olvid actualizar la info de este libro en GR, oops Luego dejo un review por ac , aunque ya expliqu mi sentir en el Wrap up de Los Juegos de Booktube, en el canal.OH, y no estoy segura del rating que le puse al libro, en estos d as pensar si debo subirlo o bajarlo, sigo muy pensativa al respecto.


    I don t know if my appreciation of this should be tempered by the fact I was about three quarters of the way through before I realised I d read it before though I think it was many years ago PLOTIt is mostly set in Long Island in summer of 1922, amongst the young, idle, amoral rich, playing fast and loose with their own lives and indeed, those of others All very glamorous, self centred, and shallow, but the possibility of darker things lurking holds interest and tension CHARACTERSEven if you lik [...]


    i love this book yes, it is a story about vapid and shallow people who live selfish and hedonistic lives and treat other people like playthings, but there is an elegance, a restraint to the prose that manages to discuss, in the same tone, both doomed love and the breakdown of the american dream and it is masterful some may say the great american noveld so this youtube watch v OULhlakes me want to tear my eyes out with my hands and stomp on them forever and everah, you thought this was going to b [...]

    Brian Yahn

    Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan are two of the most memorable characters in literature F Scott Fitzgerald weaves them tragically together in this perfectly plotted masterpiece.Every scene is unforgettable so distinct and unique from the grandest party ever recorded, to the most tense fight ever written, to the most perfectly dark twisted love affair of all time, to the most pathetically sad funeral imaginable.When people say this is the best book ever written, they re not kidding It s so good that [...]

    This is an all right ish kind of novel, I suppose, but I always preferred Fitzgerald s little known prequel The Average Gatsby, although some people found the vision of Mervyn Gatsby, Jay s obscure brother, living a reasonably okayish life as the manager of a carpet and upholstery warehouse in Des Moines a trifle dispiriting I quite agree that The Bad Gatsby was a shameless self ripoff which did Fitzgerald no favours The threesome scene between Warren Harding, John Dillinger and Gatsby was in po [...]


    COS CONTINUIAMO A REMARE, BARCHE CONTRO LA CORRENTE, SOSPINTI SENZA POSA VERSO IL PASSATORomanzo che mi parso molto, molto cinematografico anche se non credo Fitzgerald avesse ancora incominciato a lavorare a Hollywood quando Gatsby fu pubblicato Ma il cinema per gli US e per noi italiani la forma d arte esportata meglio nel corso del Novecento, quella che si diffusa di pi , diventata pi famosa Fitzgerald anche in questo seppe cogliere l aria del tempo e poi restare eterno come solo i classici p [...]


    Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us It eluded us then, but that s no matter tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther And then one fine morning So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past

    Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003.I am a Classics person, but not a Modern Classics reader I prefer the Victorian and pre Victorian Classics and Modern Classics have never really interested me However, even before I began this Reading Challenge I knew that I needed to change that I m still not overly enamoured with Modern Classics though they tend to be a lot shorter than Victorian Classics are, which can come as a relief but I am th [...]


    The Great Gatsby is considered by many to be the zenith of American fiction writing in the last century I won t say that it is the best American novel I ve read but I will say it is probably the most perfect.Along with J.D Salinger, Fitzgerald has got to be my favorite writer of fiction As opposed to Hemingway s bluntness, and Faulkner s artiness, Fitzgerald s prose seems to paraphrase Michael Chabon to rain down from style heaven His style in fact is like the ladies he writes about cool, lean a [...]

    Jay Gatsby, is a mysterious young man, who gives extravagant parties on Long Island, New York, outside his palatial mansion , in the warm, lazy, summer nights That he doesn t know the people he invites, not to mention the numerous gatecrashers, might make it a little strange, but this being the roaring 20 s, anything goes, rumors abound about Gatsby, bootlegger Who cares, as long as the free liquor flows, the great food served, and the beautiful music, continues playing Finally attending one of [...]


    Great.Now I m getting pissed off at classics too I seem to be upping my game.How much shallowness can one person stand.Well, if I feel betrayed, imagine Jay.Newsflash sweetheart, when a man wants to give you the world, the least you can do is send a flower to his funeral.I suppose he would have had you not destroyed him.I ve never respected a fictional character .And the best part is that now, we don t even have the excuse of a battle between the old wealth and the new rich of the 1920s This mod [...]


    Like many people, I first read The Great Gatsby when I was too young to understand it I appreciated the beauty of Fitzgerald s prose and his gift for describing scenes, but disliked quite a few of his characters and couldn t fathom why they inspired in each other the degree of devotion and obsession that they seemed to do I also found the narrator a bit dull and the ending a huge let down In short, I was convinced Fitzgerald was a good writer I actually went on to check out some of his short sto [...]


    F Scott Fitzgerald in his intricately patterned novel, spectacularly draws an enigmatic millionaire and his idealistic passion for a beautiful, but insincere woman in an unprecedented flourishing era Today happiness largely defined by the acquisition of material things has been epitomized by this timeless novel.The Great Gatsby displays Fitzgerald s personal attempt at articulating his colliding feelings towards the Roaring Twenties In many ways, Fitzgerald like Nick Carraway found the Jazz Age [...]
