Thoughts: I am so glad that someone made me read this. I had read some of Fitzgerald’s shorter works in high school and was not overly impressed, so I never bothered to seek out a longer work. I can see now what The Great Gatsby has become a classic. It is very well-written and pulls you in immediately with its very decadent story. It is a bit of a downer, but very well crafted. 
Rating: 4 stars
