Originally, I was forced to read this book for IB Lit, but a few chapters in, it no longer became a "forced book" to read. This book, much different than Buhrmann's film adaptation, is a brilliant piece full of symbolism, romance, and classic "roaring twenties".

Before you see Baz Luhrmann's version of razzle dazzle--3D'd and Jay Z'd--read the original. Fitzgerald's distinctive prose, a wandering romance, the threats to morality from NY money, more and more. The precursor to so many later novels of note, recently O'Neill's Netherland.

It both makes me extremely happy and extremely disturbed that I can get literary art like this for less than it costs for a Big Mac.

In my younger and more judgmental years, I read The Great Gatsby with disappointed indifference. I thought Fitzgerald was a fanciful hack, that the story was weak and the writing was too bourgeois. A few days ago, I found a dog eared copy of the book in a stack that my friend had left behind, and curiously began reading again. This time was markedly different. Reading through the illuminating prose, I often found myself beating on the wall and jumping up and down in jealousy and amazement at just how good Fitzgerald writes. This is a brilliant work, and all too deserving of the spot that it currently holds in the American/Western canon.
