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.
This production was great and really brought this classic to modern life.45
Overall very great book and was fun to read it55
This edition has typographical errors on every other page. It’s distracting, but it’s free. Beggars—alas—cannot be choosers.55
Haven’t read a book in what feels like a decade. Finished in less than 24 hours. Great read, always loved the movie but the book was even better too my surprise!55
That’s a good book today55
This book may possibly be my favorite book of all time and anything less than 5 stars feels criminal55
Had to read it for school45
This is my second time reading and it’s still as good as before. Gatsby didn’t deserve to die and his murder was all because Tom lied. And of course daisy she doesn’t have a clue what she wants55
You always hear the movie doesn’t match up to the book. I can honestly say this book was incredible! I could picture Leonardo DiCaprio playing his role of Gatsby as I turned each page!55
It’s a classic and an amazing read.55
