The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby is a dazzling social satire, F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece and a milestone in twentieth-century literature, now beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.'There was music from my neighbour's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.'Everybody who is anybody is seen at the glittering parties held in millionaire Jay Gatsby's mansion in West Egg, east of New York. The riotous throng congregates in his sumptuous garden, coolly debating Gatsby's origins and mysterious past. None of the frivolous socialites understands him and among various rumours is the conviction that 'he killed a man'. A detached onlooker, Gatsby is oblivious to the speculation he creates, but always seems to be watching and waiting, though no one knows what for.As the tragic story unfolds, Gatsby's destructive dreams and passions are revealed, leading to disturbing consequences. A brilliant evocation of 1920s high society, The Great Gatsby peels away the layers of this glamorous world to display the coldness and cruelty at its heart.'Not only a page-turner and a heartbreaker, it's one of the most quintessentially American novels ever written' Time'He (F Scott Fitzgerald) was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a "generation"' New York Times'The most perfectly crafted work of fiction to have come out of America' Professor Tony Tanner'The American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers' Washington PostF. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St Paul, Minnesota in 1896. He studied at Princeton University before joining the army in 1917. In 1920 he married Zelda Sayre. Their traumatic relationship and subsequent breakdowns became a major influence on his writing. Among his publications were five novels, This Side of Paradise, The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon (his last and unfinished work); six volumes of short stories and The Crack-Up, a selection of autobiographical pieces. F. Scott Fitzgerald died suddenly in 1940.

Enjoyable enough for audio puzzling. Great performance by Mr. Gyllenhaal, but audiobooks are still not my favorite. The story, while a worthwhile classic, did not move me in any way. I am completely disinterested and indifferent to these awful and boring rich people and their pretenders.

DGRachel I detest this novel. 😂 2w
Exbrarian @DGRachel I can see why it's popular, but I would never recommend it to anyone for any reason. 2w

“The windows were ajar and gleaming white against the fresh grass outside that seemed to grow a little way into the house. A breeze blew through the room, blew curtains in at one end and out the other like pale flags, twisting them up toward the frosted wedding-cake of the ceiling, and then rippled over the wine-colored rug, making a shadow on it as wind does on the sea.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Unpopular opinion: I seriously disliked this book. I don't understand how it became a high school syllabus staple. Fitzgerald sounded like a wannabe poet trying too hard to write romantic prose. If you're after a great novel of the Jazz Age, I would highly recommend checking out Gentlemen Prefer Blondes instead - if nothing else, it's a lot more fun.

TheLudicReader @keepingupwiththepenguins it was more that I started teaching it in grade 12 and that forced me to look closely...and once you start talking about a book, it starts yielding its magic. Or something. 🤔 3w

I feel like whenever someone who has read The Great Gatsby mentions it, they have really strong feelings about it. They either love it or they hate it and there is no in between. How about you? If you‘ve read this book, how do you feel about it? #1920s #letsflyjuly @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

Palimpsest I read it in high school in the 90s and again before the 2013 movie release. I love it. I love the writing, but I did wonder what he saw in Daisy the second time around, yet I think that was part of the point. Gatsby‘s vision was mostly a beautiful dream. 1mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It was required reading in high school and I remember that I liked it but I should give it a reread to see if I still enjoy it. 1mo
Scochrane26 I read it twice in high school & want to re-read because I‘m not sure I would still like it now. 1mo
Lizzybennetgirl The first time I read it I liked it and thought it was romantic. The second time I realized how delusional Gatsby and Daisy were. Then I thought it was really sad 😢. The entire premise of their romance (and the American dream) was based on something that wasn‘t even real. (edited) 1mo
keepingupwiththepenguins Oh, I really did not like this book! I felt like I was the only one who found it disappointing - overwrought, creepy, grasping. Definitely not what its reputation held it up to be! 3w

So the above-pictured books were my favorite assigned books from high school on the Kentucky-dead-white-men tour, both by the same beloved teacher.

Okay, I swear I‘ll stop beating up on O‘Brien soon, but I do love the way this episode progresses the prophets/pah wraiths storyline more than the O‘Brien/Keiko storyline. 🤦🏻‍♀️🖖🏻

”I couldn‘t forgive him or like him, but I saw that what he had done was, to him, entirely justified. It was all very careless and confused. They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made. . . .”

Painted Daisy from The Great Gatsby, was very inspired by the quote from the end of the book where he says: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made…”

This week, in our Bookworm Problems episode, we've been sharing bookish issues that plague us. One of mine (Jen's) is my recent tendency NOT to re-read. As an English teacher for 16 years, there were books that I read every year with my students. I had both a feeling of comfort and of discovery each time I re-read one of these texts, reveling in returning to my favorite parts and rejoicing when I found something new. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod I found (no surprise) that the best books hold up to re-reading, offering hidden treasures that only familiarity could uncover. As I grew older, my own perspective changed--I read Gatsby differently in my 30s, after dozens of tours through the book, than I did as a teenager experiencing for the first time Gatsby's tragic fate and Nick's attempts to understand his friend.⠀ 3mo
UnabridgedPod After I left my English classroom, I didn't HAVE to re-read anymore, and so, largely, I haven't (except occasionally for the podcast!). At first, it was refreshing to be reading only new things, but three years in, I've begun to miss that cherished experience. So one of my goals for this summer is to choose a few favorites and to revel in re-reading once again.⠀ 3mo
marleed I love to reread books. I donated about 2/3 of my library in a recent move and have spent the last year rebuilding my library wall - many are books I had already read. I can‘t wait to dig back in. But then there‘s my Overdrive with new books too! 3mo
UnabridgedPod @marleed That‘s my constant battle—the lure of the new is tough to resist!! 3mo

I‘ll be honest: Early in the book, I was planning on rating it “so-so.” I didn‘t feel like much was happening, and Nick seemed too passive a narrator. But then I hit the drama near the end, and I realized Fitzgerald had been establishing so many threads that, woven together, truly form a masterpiece. This book would definitely reward a second read, and I plan on giving it one soon!

This was ok. I listened to it on audible, so maybe I would have liked it better if I had read it. I just didn‘t connect with why the narrator thought so highly of Gatsby. It definitely paints a specific picture of 1920‘s life/mentality. Not sure if I‘ll read it again or not.

I loved it! I was so prepared to not, I had taken a stab at classics before and found a mixed bag (ie: loved Pride and Prejudice but I detested Dracula). I also had read a lot of reviews, so many people made mention that at many points they couldn‘t figure out what Fitzgerald was trying to say. They also mentioned his wordiness, which I can support. He does tend to be a bit overly descriptive of small details.
