The Great Gatsby

When you think of influential writers, one name that comes up is F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Told through the eyes of Nick Carraway, The Great Gatsby chronicles the lifestyle of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan.

Fitzgerald's writing style is very poetic and flowing. The characters, particularly Nick and Jay, are engaging. Thought the first two are a little slow, the third act is shocking. I really got a feel of the 1920's just from reading The Great Gatsby. Made me wish I was alive then.

My Rating: ****
