Customer Reviews

Beautiful, Romantic, TragicI don't know how I made it through high school without reading this classic, but I'm so glad I get to come back to books like this and read them as an adult. I'm sure I would have learned stuff in high school, but I feel like I'm getting more appreciation out of books like this as I get older.The only thing I knew about this book before I started reading was that it was a shallow love story that ends with the girl dumping the poor, innocent guy....or something. And yes that is the plot, but I think the story can also be about the American dream and who it's really available to. What is the American dream? Is it just getting money and it doesn't matter how? Did we really get away from social inequality? I hadn't really thought about any of that before reading this book. It made me wonder what my American dream is. Do I just want to get lots of money, a big house, and tons of stuff? Or is there more to it than that? Without spoiling the end, I feel like Mr. Fitzgerald's opinion on the matter is that some people are born to live the American dream and some aren't - and there isn't much you can do to change it. The fate of Daisy and Gatsby really brings that tragic idea home.The parties were unreal. I was drooling over the mention of all the food. I couldn't help but imagine the Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey coming to Gatsby's house and being appalled at what Americans called "a dinner party." My mind was buzzing with all the practical details and sheer amount of money that it would take to feed two dinners and tons of alcohol to that many people... But the parties and glamour are just covering up the fact that most of these people are shady, immoral, hypocritical and just plain unhappy. Especially Tom and his wife Daisy.I loved the writing. It was simple, charming, and witty - an interesting contrast to the much deeper story going on. The last line about how we can't escape from the past points out that even though as Americans we say that anyone can achieve wealth, happiness and equality, the truth is we keep getting sucked into the rules of the past.The only thing I thought was overdone was the symbolic Eye Doctor bilboard in the ash valley. Don't let the symbolic Eye Doctor Ad/God's Judgement fall on you on the way out.Overall, a novel that got me really thinking about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the context of a beautiful, tragic, and romantic story.5Literary masterpiece, and a fantastic copySince I read it in 9th grade, The Great Gatsby has been one of my favorite books. Every once in a while I give it a re-read, only to find my reading of the timeless tale of love lost, disillusionment, and new money society to be more relevant than the last. The rich metaphors and symbols in this book are a fantastic introduction to the ideas, and a pleasure for young and old readers alike.After years of only owning this book in ebook format, I thought it necessary to purchase a hardcover copy, one that will last long after my ereader has died, and one that can be passed along to my children and their children.I was initially concerned that this would not feature the remarkable original artwork, the golden eyes hovering in the sky, but I can happily say my fears were unfounded. The book jacket appears exactly as it does on the first two photos for this listing, with the original artwork taking up the entire front, and a photo of the brilliant author on the back.I think this is a must-read book for all, and readers won't be disappointed by this Jazz age masterpiece.5Why is this a classic?I grew up hearing about The Great Gatsby but somehow never had to read it in any English course. I finally read it after college and am confused as to why it's a classic. It's an easy read, that's about the only positive thing I can say about it. I once saw a tweet saying something along the lines of, "I have to assume that anyone who has a Great Gatsby themed party never finished the book." It still makes me chuckle. It's an awful and depressing story with no redeeming qualities. And don't forget the drunk driving! Pfft.1Timeless American Art: An Alchemy of Truth and BeautyI believe the alchemy of time, place and the right talent and drive can create in an author the story and words to compose a portrait of truth and beauty that transcends time; a work of supreme art so rare and splendid that it is revered because our soul longs to be transported to the splendor of a moment in time and desires to be granted the providence to create something so divine that through it we may survive on this Earth forever.As rare and astounding as the art of Rembrandt, Renoir and Rodin, F. Scott Fitzgerald's short novel casts a spell on me in his painting Love, Truth, Mythology and Tragedy in words so poignant, eloquent and gorgeous that I, a mere mortal, cannot do them justice, so I must quote (though I typically prefer not to): The loneliest moment in someone s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly. *** In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars. *** His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete. *** And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. ***This is my favorite American novel.5a novel with themes that reach beyond the narrow limits of its timeThe Great Gatsby is a recognized classic. Interestingly, the book did not sell very well during Fitzgerald s lifetime, and when he died in 1940 he seemed to have regarded the book as a failure. When he died, scholars started to assess his work, and The Great Gatsby was recognized as an important work of literature. Besides its recognition, one must also think about its meaning for us in the present day. The prohibition period that he writes about was a strangely decadent period in America. Furthermore, the catastrophes of the Holocaust and WWII changed much about the U.S. and its position in the world. Since then, too, there has been substantial progress in civil rights, including the rights of women. In this sense, his novel seems parochial, and not very relevant for us today: Too much has changed about the world. Nevertheless, I think that if you approach the novel with an open mind and some knowledge of the historical context, you can see elements that remain of interest today. Fitzgerald was struggling with themes that are larger than his times, and still speak to us today. In this sense, I can recommend this book.5A work of timeless genius!If the Great Gatsby had gone through just one more rewrite, it would be a flawless and poetic novel depicting New York during the early 1920s. Gatsby comes alive on the page through Fitzgerald's masterful command of dialogue and character development. It's hard not to see a young 30 somethin Robert Redford, as Gatsby, a man who through out the story is living a tragedy of unrequited love, creating a life of lavish wealth and parties, in hopes to win her heart.Although this book is one of the greatest works of literature, it seemed Fitzgerald rushed through it too quickly, hoping to get it out onto bookshelves. The story gets muddled by Fitzgeralds historical retellings of Gatsby's past. His descriptions of Dan Cody, the yachtsman who started Gatsby's climb to wealth, seemed too superfluous. Also the chapter start introducing the list of guests who attended Gatsby's parties seemed way too lengthy and unneeded in the story. The ending where Gatsby's father arrives to tell about his son's childhood and his daily routine kind of ruined the ending for me.Next to other great works though, this is superb storytelling!Its sad how underappreciated Fitzgerald was during his lifetime! This guy was the Picasso of English Literature, yet he struggled all through his life just to make ends meet, unlike authors of lesser quality, like Hemingway who were dashing millionaires. Goes to show how underappreciated creative authors are next to art genius. But it's way more difficult to write a novel like this, I think, than it is to paint a Picasso.5Silver Spoon FedThroughout this novel, we are to consider color, rightfully so. In the very beginning we are confronted with a view of skin color as base as it is fearful. The color of skin, the color of grass, the color of automobiles. Perhaps silver: a color drained of ambition and purpose: the literal silver-spoon-borne-illness that welcomes the Daisy(s) and Toms of this world describes a lack of depth and consequence. They are twice removed, twice protected by the soft element 47, the color of the ruling class. Their pearls, mined from the blue-green ocean, abutting the emerald green forested continent, match silver skin bathed in silver threads. And friendships. One is silver and the other gold. The new friend becomes the most reliable narrator, the most crystal lens through which we are all to view and admire a colorful life. "The old sport," takes careful measure of the colorless characters with which he shares these pages and finds that vibrancy died with the Gatsby. Gatsby' obituary is certainly spectroscopic; the silver light splinters and all is color.5A FAVORITE, BUT WHY IS KINDLE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN PRINT?This is one of my favorite novels. I've both read and taught it in my college lit courses a number of times.But why is the Kindle version more expensive than the print version? This situation makes no sense. Every copy of a print book costs money to produce. One copy of an electronic version is all that's needed. Like so many products, there is no tie between cost of production and cost of purchase, which helps explain why capitalism is not the respected economic theory it once was. Corporations that so obviously charge more for less support the move toward socialism and regulation.5Why is this a classic?So I thought I should read some of the classics once in a while, to improve my mind, expand my knowledge, etc.So having now read 'The Great Gatsby", I don't know how it got to be a classic.Bad writing, long run on pompous sentences, totally boring characters and very little plot don't add up to a classic in my opinion.Mostly it's plot, what little there is, involves some rich full of themselves people trying to score some booze and looking for a party during prohibition.What is somewhat interesting is the description of daily life in the U.S. in the 1920s. The technology, clothes, hairstyles, and attitudes. Otherwise I would say why bother, unless you want to cross a "classic" off your reading bucket list.1This Free Version is not worth itIt seems like there is no way to distinguish between different publishings of the book in the reviews. I "purchased" a Kindle edition of The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald (not "F. Scott Fitzgerald" as on the cover of my hard copy) for $0.00. The publisher is listed as The griffin classics (March 20, 2020). I'm not sure what the business model is for The griffin classics, and since the book was free I don't feel like I overpaid. However, I only made it a couple pages before I became too distracted looking for typos. Apparently anyone can publish books that are in the public domain, and the quality varies widely between different versions. I guess this publisher used some kind of software to imperfectly scan in the text. I should have checked out the "Look Inside" feature before ordering; I will next time if I want the best reading experience.2
