The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby Summary

An Apple Books Classics edition.

The Roaring Twenties are in full effect in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s riveting classic. Man-about-town Jay Gatsby seems to have it all, including loads of money and a massive mansion where he hosts wild, extravagant parties every Saturday. But Gatsby’s missing one thing: Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life, the one who got away.

The Great Gatsby explores the impossible, but uniquely human, longing to return to the past and the costs associated with chasing the American Dream. It’s a beautifully written, entertaining read with timeless emotional appeal.

.5 star

Good book55


The greatest book in English5 star

This book was incredibly good, read it as I worked out and at school, so many motifs and turns I definitely was not expecting highly recommended any highschool student to read and anyone wanting to get into good read.55


Beautiful and Sad5 star

Very poignant look at the emptiness of life without the experience of true love and friendship. I hear Bessie Smith singing the old blues classic “Nobody Loves You When You’re Down and Out.”55


The Marginally Ok Gatsby3 star



To love and be loved as Gatsby loved Daisy5 star

A tragic tale of a man who would reinvent himself to fit into shallow promises of love.55
