Book Review: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Title: The Great Gatsby
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Published: 1925
Language: English
Pages: 198
Rating: 5/5


Summary:
This is the story of Jay Gatsby, a man who lives his life around one obsessive desire: to be worthy of and reclaim the woman he loves.


Review:
This is a beautifully written book with really fascinating characters. I loved how Jay Gatsby was this mystery that slowly unravelled, and how he completely lives in the past. He has all these things, and yet everything in his life evolves around Daisy; a character I found to be selfish and annoying, but I don't know if I can blame her or not.

I really loved that this book was quite short, and that there was were little superfluous. I found the ending to be very real and quite emotional.

Absolutely loved the writing style, so I'll definitely be reading more from Fitzgerald.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes stories set in the 1920's, and anyone who wants a substantial but easy read.
