I first found the language superfluous, but after a bit found it to be lovely. =P I'll have to watch the Redford and DiCaprio versions now that I've read it. ( )

I had read this classic in a college English Lit class when I was in my 20s and loved it. I remembered it fondly and always spoke highly of it and of Fitzgerald. Now it's 40+ years later and I just finished reading it for the second time. Surprised at how differently I feel about it now. I think the first time I was influenced by my SFSU professor, Michael Krasny - you may know of him from his public radio show Forum, on KQED-FM. Intelligent and enthusiastic, he wanted us all to like the book as much as he did. I would love to go back to that classroom and discuss the book with him today.

This time around I especially noticed the writing - some of it awesome, but some of it embarrassingly overwrought and pretentious. Additionally, I couldn't believe Fitzgerald has his narrator, Nick Carraway, who tells the story in first person, suddenly mind-reading what Daisy is thinking and explaining why she behaves a certain way. An established, well-regarded novelist just doesn't do that! But knowing what we know of Fitzgerald's personal life - the drinking and reckless living with mentally unstable wife Zelda - it's difficult to separate the writer from the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age in which he lived.

But this is Gatsby's story, according to the title, and I found it to be so sad. Jay Gatsby reinvents himself as a young man before the novel begins, and becomes wealthy through some shady dealings that are never fully explained. He has been in love with Daisy for at least five years, and believes she loves him too. He expects her to leave her husband and go away with him, and he lives as if this fantasy is just about to come true.

Daisy plays a major role in the novel, but no spoilers here. This is a great book for a discussion (or an essay) with lots of themes and issues to debate and analyze. Too much to include in this review.

So despite the uneven writing, it's a book worth reading. And then watch the exceptional 1974 movie with Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Bruce Dern and Karen Black. ( )

I wanted to see what all the fuss was about this book. I knew next to nothing of the story. I thought that it was very good - definitely not the usual type of story I like, but was still very interesting. I'm not at all certain why I found it so fascinating, though; but I did nonetheless.
One interesting thing is that since the book was written in the middle of prohibition, there's no direct mention of that fact, like there might be for a book set in that period but written after it. It wasn't until later that I even remembered about prohibition, even though some people believe that Gatsby is a bootlegger. I guess I just totally glossed over what that term meant. Everybody was drinking all the time, and nobody mentioned needing to hide the liquor from the law. It's a great view into a slice of American history that I don't often think about. ( )

The Great Gatsby is a tragic reminder of the broken great American dream in the Jazz Age. The end of World War 1 and the Allied victory ushered in a new age of prosperity in the USA with an active nightlife. Jay Gatsby a former officer in the US Army with a humble background goes from rags to riches by capitalizing on the bootlegging business in the Prohibition era. Gatsby is known for throwing huge parties and a mysterious aura shrouds his newfound wealth but he is motivated by the desire to attain true love.

Although on the surface, the Great Gatsby may come across as a love story, it deals with complex social issues of the time like the disdain of elite for the poor, pragmatism over idealism as Daisy Buchanan decides to remain in an abusive relationship due to her husband's wealth. We are also given a taste of the crushing isolation of the modern world when people who once thronged Gatsby's mansion abandon it and avoid it as if he was a leper. The shallowness of the high class and their apathy are displayed in glorious nakedness.

This is truly a classic and deserves to be on your Must-Read list.

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.
