GG = Great Gatsby

I never had to read GG for High school or at any other time. I was in the wrong country for that novel!!

I became fascinated by the roaring 20's, back in the 1980's when I discovered Art Deco. I love that art style.

In the 1990's I came across a picture of Louise Brooks. She looked gorgeous and demure at the same time. I used to think that I would have loved living in those times, and in that era.

Now I am not so sure. I hadn't realised just how decadent that era really was. Having done a little research, I had no idea just how much of an effect, that prohibition had on the Roaring 20s but clearly the trade in illegal alcohol was doing wonderfully, no matter how much the cops tried to close it down.

But after reading the GG, I now see that the roaring twenties was nothing but decadence and dreams. It was based on illusions and laviciousness from the rich, while the rest of the population wallowed in the dirt and struggled to survive. This was the time of the Economic Bubble growing bigger and bigger before it finally burst in 1929 and sent the country (and the world) spinning down into the great depression

So those nouveau rich americans, people such as Jay Gatsby and Al Capone, who reached for their dreams on the backs of the poor, and the sales of alcohol, were directly responsible for the great depression.

The booze, the music, the decadence, the lavish lifestyle, free and easy, - take any woman you want no matter if she was married or who she was married to - it didn't matter. The whole thing was almost like a competition - a show of one upmanship - who can do the party, the glamour, the glitter, bigger and better than the last guy...

In the end, the basic story of the GG comes down to it simply being two men in a fight over a girl. And that is it!!!

Gatsby found her first and then went off to war. While he was away, Tom Buchanan snuck in, stole the girl, and married her. So GG purchased the house across the bay from his one true love and tried to woo her back. She chose to stay with Tom.

With regards to the Baz Luhrmann movie, there are some reviewers who say that it was way over the top. I say that it was not. To me, that movie was made in perfect 1920s style, and totally in keeping with the superficial and extravagant lifestyle of the rich and famous of the 1920's - not unlike the Paris Hiltons and Kim Kardashians of the 21st century!!

I remember reading this during the Great Neckian night, feeling each one of Fitzgerald's words foam on my skin like a drop of dew, the chirps of the cicada filling the empty space around me, and then realizing the perfection with which Fitzgerald had described the place. The lackluster grasp of wealth; the richness of the night.

I would bike down to the Point every now and then and look out into the pastures at Gatsby Lane. It seemed so immersing, the experience of living in the same place as the characters in one of your favorite novels—knowing the rhythm of the setting, each dark minutia of the place.

Gatsby is as un-American a book as the Dream is an American concept. This yearning for beauty and wealth could never have been described in such a lulling way, a harrowingly, subtly beautiful way. It’s almost as if the West Egg is an island within Long Island, a small country of its own (and it almost seems like this today.) It’s so easy to see the West Egg as a microcosm of American society, where in fact it is the opposite: In America, wealth is worshipped, and it works—in the West Egg, even Gatsby knows his parties are a pretense.

Like the rumors that the guests of Gatsby’s parties love so much, the novel challenges the outward appearance of people and demonstrates the tenuous relationship between reality and appearance in a variety of delicate ways. Everything here is a facade; everything creates tension between what is real and what we think is real. And like a facade, tension renders all appearances fragile as dreams.

Through language, Fitzgerald conjured in me emotions that I have never felt before. It speaks of decaying beauty and shattered aspirations in such a delicate stream of metaphors and similies that...

I can’t do this. It’s too good.

In my opinion, The Great Gatsby is a very good book. I can't think of one bad thing to point out (except the end, but I guess if that didn't happen we wouldn't learn important things). The author focused more on the characters than on the plot which made the book interesting yet simple.
The main character, Gatsby, was (to me, at least) an exceptional and mysterious individual that lived only with the purpose of seeing his first love again.
Nick Carraway was a very good narrator and throughout the story he remains somewhat passive and observant, having just an important role in the end. I liked Nick.
Daisy was the essence of the story and everything revolved around her. I'm not a fan of Daisy because I think she should have assumed her responsibilities instead of hiding behind Tom.
Overall, The Great Gatsby was an exceptional book that I will certainly be rereading many times. ( )

This is a book that everyone has read in school but has never really "read". I never really "read" the Great Gatsby until now and found it quite enjoyable. The first 1/2 of this book I had a hard time getting into, but once I got into the latter half it gripped me. Fitzgerald is a heck of a writer. His descriptions of the vapid-ness and emptiness of the upper-class east coast life are simply intriguing. The last two chapters are probably the greatest writing I have ever encountered. The moral of the story is the emptiness that is found in pursuing wealth and influence as an end, at the expense of moral quality. In part, this book is a critique of the American Dream and how it had been distorted to the mere pursuit of wealth in the 1920s. Gatsby is the embodiment of that dream and in the end, he only faces tragedy because of his dream. Overall, this is a great American novel that must be read by every American. ( )

I went into this with really low expectations based on what a lot of people told me about the book, but it wasn't as bad as I was led to believe. It wasn't amazing either, but it was ok. ( )

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.
lisäsi Nadilla-Syawie | muokkaaThe New York Times, Nadilla Syawie (Dec 1, 2016)
"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.

Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.
All right ... I'm glad it's a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool—that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.
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.
