    " One book club member came up with the perfect word to describe the feeling while reading this book: "disequilibrium." With every chapter you didn't know where you'd be or with which character. Fitzgerald described this as a "confession of faith." I hope not. "

    " Racist and sexist. And besides that it is not well developed or well told. But I have never cared much for F. Scott Fitzgerald. Skip it. "

    " i believe this book is underrated - read in syd field's book "screenplay" that FSF changed the order of books one and two because he was dissatisfied. "

    " This was a struggle about half way through. While the language is beautiful, the characters don't seem real to me and I can't identify with their actions. Though the book was hugely popular I wonder if it wasn't the attraction of following the rich - like the upcoming Royal Wedding. "

    " i wish i knew how to care this little about this much. "

    " I read this book when I was living in Chapel Hill, NC, in the 70's. It was breathtaking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexander | 3/31/2011

    " A fun read that I designated to weekend-only reading. Simultaneously fun and depressing with a series of sad/despicable characters who are that way by a series of circumstances -- typical of Fitzgerald. I can't wait for the next Fitzgerald this summer. "

    " A lovely book, really emotional. The denseness of it just made it a slow read to get through. "

    " Wonderful. How does anyone ever stop with "Gatsby?" "
