Title- The Great Gatsby.
Author- F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Publisher- Simon and Schuster.
Now for my review...
What I thought:
I can't exactly recall what I knew about the Great Gatsby before endevouring to read it, only that it was a classic, written by a vastly well known author and, am I fickle? It had an awesome cover.
But my knowladge of the actual story was lacking...somewhat.
So I don't know if "It's not at all what I expected" counts as reasonable, but after reading it that's all I thought.
It was quite a whirlwind read, talking an amazing and unexpected (I mean, what?) turn with about 100 pages to go.
It could be counted as hard reading, it wasn't a light book, but neither was it a trial; I was mesmirised by the way Fitzgerald kept to the tale of Gatsby and Nick, all three, four, five even, main characters have the feel of having their own small tale behind what is the main one being told, but the focus didn't stray, which was... interesting? Something to admire.
So, in conclusion, I can't say that I wholly enjoyed every moment of the book, the story, but I am glad that I read it.
I am glad that I now know the story of the Great Gatsby.
