Set in the post-Great War Long Island/New York world of the rich. The narrator, Nick Carraway, sympathetically records the pathos of Gatsby's romantic dream which founders on the reality of corruption, the insulated selfishness of Tom and Daisy, and the cutting edge of violence.
The Great Gatsby Reviews
User rating -
I've just read this book for the first time an i must say that It has to be one of the best books ever written. Someone on this page says that it is shallow - this has to be because the person hasn't taken the time to study the book - it's just about the most beautiful written, profoundest, and moving piece of literature I have ever read- THIS is not a book you read Once - this is a book you must read several times - to seek out the deeper layers- eg. the corruption of the american dream, the longing for new frontiers, the human ability to try and repeat the past - I could go on. I've been lucky enough to read it with a teacher who is deeeply fascinated by it - and this has been maybe THE most important reading experience in my life. Take your time and see how a true materpiece is built and written - THIS MAN CAN WRITE ! - besides from that it is a book that becomes more relevant every day.
