I read Gatsby for the first time in high school, and if I recalled the story line at all, I surely did not recall the intense beauty of Fitzgerald's prose. Not only did Fitzgerald disembowel the American Dream, he did it so elegantly one can practically see it shimmer like Gatsby's garish mansion. DeCaprio's version of Gatsby kept sneaking into my mind's eye throughout this second reading. ( )

“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.”

I read this in high school, and then again in college, and saw the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio when it came out, and here are the only things I remembered before picking up this book:

- a flashing green light
- creepy eyes
- mint juleps

When I saw this new audiobook version, I decided this classic deserved another reread, specifically for the narrator, Samwise Gamgee - I mean, Sean Astin - as I received a copy of this audiobook from NetGalley. Overall, I liked his voice and style. Sean Astin was not a bad narrator. I liked his portrayal of Nick Carroway, the "guy-next-door". He added this sincerity to Nick's voice that was reminiscent of Sam in LOTR. While I overall liked his narration style, sometimes the delivery felt a little stilted, and it did detract from the story a bit.

Even though the story is nearly 100 years old, it holds up relatively well, at least in overall message -- the desire to achieve the American dream. Rereading the audiobook was a nice change, though part of me wanted to reread a physical copy so I could notate all of the great quotes and symbolism like I was in tenth-grade English class again...

Thank you to NetGalley and Dreamscape Media for a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. ( )

I read this for high school. When we read it in our book group, I couldn't believe it--I had no memory of what a great book it is. Hmmm...perhaps I should revisit more of those assigned readings... ( )

I read The Great Gatsby many years ago, probably in my late teens or early twenties. And I have to say that I remembered virtually nothing about this book. Jay Gatsby - rich young socialite, obsessed with some woman, not sure of her name. Narrated by some male character. This is all I could remember. So I was right about those things, but it was definitely time to reread this classic and I'm glad I did.
Of course, like most everyone else, I disliked most of the characters. They are rich, young, self-absorbed people. All they want to do is party. Yes, Nick works in the city as a bond broker, but he doesn't really have to. He just wanted to make his own way in the world rather than depending on his family's money. He is probably the least objectionable character in the book but that isn't all that hard since everyone else is easy to dislike. Even Tom's girlfriend, who is not at all rich, doesn't really care about anything except having a good time regardless of who she hurts.
Tom and Daisy truly deserve each other. He cheats on her and acts as if it doesn't mean anything. She doesn't really want to leave him, she just wants him to stop his little flings. That's why she takes back up with Gatsby, to get back at Tom. It's pretty much a game to both of them. And Jay Gatsby is the one to pay the price.
And of course Gatsby is just a big fraud. He is rich from illegal activities and throws parties for huge groups of people he doesn't even know. All to see if Daisy will ever show up and he can get her back. Then when she does show up, the reality of Daisy doesn't match the five-year fantasy of Daisy. It probably wouldn't have lasted if they had gotten together because he had built her up in his imagination to something she couldn't be. However, even though he is a fraud, he truly loves Daisy and wants to be with her and protect her. He pays the ultimate price in protecting her since he won't let anyone know that she was driving the car when Myrtle was killed.
We aren't meant to like all the characters, we are only meant to see how flawed they all are. Fitzgerald does an amazing job of depicting the phoniness and greed of the era. And how the lives of the newly rich were terribly different from those with the established wealth. Jay Gatsby was rich but really had no class. He wore tacky clothes and had ostentatious furnishings while Daisy and Tom wore understated clothing and had a tastefully furnished house. No one was really friends with Gatsby, they just used him to have a good time. Tom and Daisy would never have let themselves be used in quite that way.
There are so many things to say about this novel that have been said quite well by others. Whether you end up loving it or hating it, it is well worth reading. ( )

I was prepared not to love this book because I was told it was basically a glorified romance novel. Well, that's true, but the "glorified" is what's important here. It's a book of high style written in often lovely prose. I read it fairly quickly but feel like there are probably pretty complex systems of symbols (color, flowers, weather) underpinning it that a second and third read might help me make more structured sense of. The book is so much more about how it's written than about what's written about. I could care less about the people and their inane doings so long as they're written about in prose like this. ( )

The Great Gatsby is a romance novel that written by American Author F.Scott Fitzgerald.This novel is talk about the New Yorker in 1900s.The Great Gatsby is a classic piece of American fiction. It is a novel full of triumph and tragedy.Nick Carraway is the narrator, or storyteller, of The Great Gatsby, but he is not the story's protagonist, or main character. Instead, Jay Gatsby is the protagonist of the novel that bears his name. Tom Buchanan is the book's antagonist, opposing Gatsby's attempts to get what he wants: Tom's wife Daisy.

The weakness of this book is they using the classic languange and a little difficult to understand.The weakness also about Gatsby affection to Daisy,He spends that money on lavish parties in the hopes that she will show up.When she finally spends time with him, for the first time in many years, he naively believes that she will leave Tom for him but,unfortunately she is not.

However,the strength of this book is the writer are using the unique title so the reader are feel sympathy and curious about it, also the characteristic about Jay Gatsby that teach the reader many lesson.

To conclude,this book is the very recommended book,especially High School students because Fitzgerald’s novel is a portal to the savage heart of the human spirit, and wonders at our enormous capacity to dream, to imagine, to hope and to persevere.

The great Gatsby is truly a romance book like no other.F.SCOTT.Switzgerald describing about the life of New Yorker in 1900s.This novel is very popular many students if high school are required by their teachers to read this book.The narrator of The Great Gatsby is a young man from Minnesota named Nick Carraway. He not only narrates the story but casts himself as the book’s author.As ive read about this book,Gatsby’s personality was nothing short of “gorgeous.”

moreover,the weakness about this book is hard to understand if u are not really pay attention on it.this novel is about a contradiction,Gatsby's idealism makes him blind.He doesn't see that Daisy can't have love and money, just money. Gatsby can't turn back time.He even doesn't see death coming toward him.

However,the strength of this book something quite different from others,it is the charm and beauty of writing,has many important meanings that should be learned early on in life.

To conclude,what i can say is don't be too obsessed just because you have so much money,money ain't last forever.but overall its a magnificent,fantastically, entertaining and enthralling story.

"The Great Gatsby" is in form no more than a glorified anecdote, and not too probable at that

What gives the story distinction is something quite different from the management of the action or the handling of the characters; it is the charm and beauty of the writing.
 
I find Gatsby aesthetically overrated, psychologically vacant, and morally complacent; I think we kid ourselves about the lessons it contains. None of this would matter much to me if Gatsby were not also sacrosanct.

There is the convoluted moral logic, simultaneously Romantic and Machiavellian, by which the most epically crooked character in the book is the one we are commanded to admire. There’s the command itself: the controlling need to tell us what to think, both in and about the book. There’s the blanket embrace of that great American delusion by which wealth, poverty, and class itself stem from private virtue and vice. There’s Fitzgerald’s unthinking commitment to a gender order so archaic as to be Premodern: corrupt woman occasioning the fall of man. There is, relatedly, the travesty of his female characters—single parenthesis every one, thoughtless and thin. (Don’t talk to me about the standards of his time; the man hell-bent on being the voice of his generation was a contemporary of Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf, not to mention the great groundswell of activists who achieved the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Yet here he is in A Short Autobiography: “Women learn best not from books or from their own dreams but from reality and from contact with first-class men.”)
 


It is an impressive accomplishment. And yet, apart from the restrained, intelligent, beautifully constructed opening pages and a few stray passages thereafter—a melancholy twilight walk in Manhattan; some billowing curtains settling into place at the closing of a drawing-room door—Gatsby as a literary creation leaves me cold. Like one of those manicured European parks patrolled on all sides by officious gendarmes, it is pleasant to look at, but you will not find any people inside.

Indeed, The Great Gatsby is less involved with human emotion than any book of comparable fame I can think of. None of its characters are likable. None of them are even dislikable, though nearly all of them are despicable. They function here only as types, walking through the pages of the book like kids in a school play who wear sashes telling the audience what they represent: OLD MONEY, THE AMERICAN DREAM, ORGANIZED CRIME.

This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens, where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air. Occasionally a line of gray cars crawls along an invisible track, gives out a ghastly creak and comes to rest, and immediately the ash-gray men swarm up with leaden spades and stir up an impenetrable cloud which screens their obscure operations from your sight.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me. "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
I rented a house ... on that slender riotous island which extends itself due east of new york -- where there are, among other natural curiosities, two unusual formations of land. Twenty miles from the city a pair of enormous eggs, identical in contour and seprated only by a courtesy bay, jut out into the most domesticated body of salt water in the Western hemisphere, the great wet barnyard of Long Island Sound. They are not perfect ovals ... but their physical resembalnce must be a source of perpetual wonder to the gullsthat fly overhead.
