Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen | 5/21/2011

    " Fascinating collection of short stories that shows how F. Scott Fitzgerald sustained himself between books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 5/21/2011

    " Some of the stories stick out above others, definitely some jazz era prejudice too but the story telling is good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 5/15/2011

    " my only regret is that this isn't a little longer. :/
    loved the story, and the interesting concept. makes me want to watch the movie again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 5/12/2011

    " Not much to say - I think I liked the style more than the themes though.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 5/10/2011

    " Loved this story. I read it on the Nook app on my blackberry and it was quite easy to read that way. I would have loved the characters to be fleshed out a little more, but the concept is great.
    Now I want to see the movie version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 5/7/2011

    " Quick read, but such a cute story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kylene | 5/2/2011

    " I liked it and didn't like it at the same time. I actually felt sad. The MC was mistreated and misunderstood the entire time and it wasn't his fault! The movie is very different from this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shayma | 4/22/2011

    " This book was so sad, it just gives you a whole new idea of living. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 4/21/2011

    " Reminded me of why I love Fitzgerald - a virtuoso painter of the Jazz Age. His short stories are unique and unpredictable, and he writes beautifully. Although a few of the stories are somewhat strangely abstract, they are mostly absorbing snapshots of lives, told with poignancy and humor. "
