    " Fun and fast. Great insight into the 1920s with very curious topics. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 11/8/2013

    " I only read The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but I should really read the others too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 stacia | 10/22/2013

    " Contains "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," which I really dig, and "The Jelly-Bean," also rather dope. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 10/19/2013

    " Thoroughly enchanted by Fitzgerald's paradoxical images of the American 1920's, both glamorous and tragic, sparkling yet hollow. Loved the short stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 7/20/2013

    " After about the fourth short story I felt that the themes, characters, and tensions lacked variety. Fitzgerald's writing always catches me but his characters in the last three stories made dim his artistry. Would recommend but would also suggest sticking to his novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen M | 5/24/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graf | 2/23/2013

    " The jazz age in America -- Fitzgerald in his element. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kalle | 2/22/2013

    " Fantastic short stories, with The Camel's Back and The Lees of Happiness being the highlights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucky | 10/11/2012

    " there is nothing profound in these stories except maybe their triviality. however, i think this boom is worth the read - you'll find yourself feeling very satisfied at the end of each tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith Goff | 10/7/2012

    " Selected by my bookgroup. Still thinking about how to assess the stories. The plots and ideas and even perspectives seem to me to be definitely flawed, but some of the writing is definitely beautiful. More later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 9/10/2012

    " My favorite story was The Adjuster. The other were good, interesting how everyone has all the same issues no matter what decade they live in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 7/23/2012

    " Many of the stories did not resonate with me, but I thought that they were imaginative. "The Case of Benjamin Button" was the original concept for the movie by the same name and interesting in its differences. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate | 6/16/2012

    " Fitzgerald is a master of Short Story, his stories are timeless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bolivera | 5/2/2012

    " Worth another read, individual stories range in quality but on balance entertaining. Short stories can be quite refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 4/2/2012

    " 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 Joanna | 11/11/2011

    " The Camel's Back was hilarious! Quite the cautionary tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 5/18/2011

    " Some very good and just good short stories--I hadn't realized what a sense of humor Fitzgerald had. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 1/3/2011

    " This was a 5 star book up until the last several stories which seemed completely out of place. Definitely an excellent read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valissa | 11/24/2010

    " "It was an age of miracles, it was an age of art, it was an age of excess, and it was an age of satire." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 9/13/2010

    " Another great read on my Droid. Quick read. This was the basis for Benjamin Button. Now I have to see the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 8/29/2010

    " Somw good stories, some not so good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 8/3/2010

    " Some good short stories, some a little dull. Liked best Benjamin Button and My Last Flappers! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 tangled.up.in.blue | 7/11/2010

    " Meh. Stick to Fitzgerald's novels is the lesson I'm walking away with. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 6/23/2010

    " I read several of the stories from this book and they did not suit my taste (of lack thereof) in literature so I quit about half way through.

    Please don't let my opinion of these works deter you from giving it a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 5/19/2010

    " In this short story in this collection - Three Hours Between Planes - Fitzgerald handled this delicate story of first love brilliantly, springing out the surprise only towards the end.

    He certainly knows how to tell a good story.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 5/4/2010

    " Either I don't know enough about the era to understand it, or these stories were cryptic. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and rate it two stars instead of one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 3/26/2010

    " Young F. Scott is obsessed with the terrifying notion of growing old and boring. Aren't we all? The literary equivalent of "Once in a Lifetime". And the Benjamin Button story is so much better than the movie it pretty much hurts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 2/9/2010

    " "O Russet Witch! is probably the best short story I've ever read. Check it out. "
