Review: The Great Gatsby

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Daniel J

THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald's snapshot of the decadence and excess of the Jazz Age, is a literary classic that has been frequently and successfully performed on both screen and stage. Although Gatsby has been recorded previously on audio, Tim Robbins's reading is surely one of the best. Robbins excels in giving each of the characters a distinct persona, conveying emotion with an almost ... Read full review

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com

THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald's portrait of the Jazz Age in all its decadence and excess, is, as editor Maxwell Perkins praised it in 1924, "a wonder."

It might just be a bit lame to write a review about a school book, but I did read it so I feel like I should log it for record's sake. I watched the movie first, about two years ago, so I actually had ... Read full review

User Review  - Ankit Goel - Goodreads

Summary: Lots of rich people get together and drink and party all the time, have rich-people problems and then some rich people die. It wasn't a bad book. Just nothing out of the ordinary. More like ... Read full review

This is really a good read ... but I'm not exactly sure why. It's actually a little bit depressing, as the story goes ... but the writing is wonderful. There are some beautiful phrases and paragraphs ... Read full review
