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 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
This is a good book to read it as a play55
Where do I start!!! Rip to the late gatsby. Hey never wait for live. The end25
Only book ever to make me somehow hate every single character at some point.55
I had to read this book in high school English class and I didn’t really care for it then. I decided to give it another try just for leisure and it was a great story! Glad I re-read it.55
A must read. A gripping tale of life. Sad but real. I read it the first time over 50 years ago and it still leaves me speechless.55
