It is 1925, and Richard Diver is the high priest of the good life on the white sands of the French Riviera. The Beautiful People - film stars, socialites, aristocrats - gather eagerly and bitchily around him and his wife Nicole. Beneath the breathtaking glamour, however, is a world of pain, and there is at the core of their lives a brittle hollowness. Beautiful, powerful, and tragic, Tender is the Night is one of the great works of American fiction.

    " Depressing and dark yet highly addictive A book I can read again and again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geraldine | 2/14/2014

    " Gatsby is perfect, but Tender is the Night is true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lianne | 1/28/2014

    " hard to get through, and not my favorite "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 1/24/2014

    " Read Gatsby in high school and enjoyed it, but found this at the bottom of the pile a few months ago. Its both uplifting, disturbing, funny, and depressing at parts. Fitzgerald has a way of flipping a phrase that's hysterical and the book really shines in the change of perspective from the three main protagonists. From the idealized heroics of the Divers at the beginning, I never really expected the sad, abrupt ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy | 1/13/2014

    " One of my all-time favorite books, if not the ultimate favorite. I return to this book year after year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Cunningham | 12/30/2013

    " I preferred The Beautiful and Damned. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noel | 12/28/2013

    " good story about mental illness in the privileged class, post World War 1. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Rens-domiano | 11/10/2013

    " I really tried to like it, but the characters just didn't grab me. The story rambled along and often left me thinking I might just skip to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lewis | 10/11/2013

    " An OK read that I felt really tailed off towards the end. The chapters on Paris are definitely the highlights, and it never really reaches those heights again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia Oreilly | 8/11/2013

    " Great writing, storyline trite , poor last quarter and was hard to get through "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Urszula | 11/20/2012

    " This is the only book I could NOT finish.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Francesca | 9/4/2012

    " There was no 'flow' to the story. They were just words on a page. Maybe I just did not enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rani | 7/26/2012

    " My favorite Fitzgerald. Such a great sense of the period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Schmier | 8/2/2011

    " This book goes hand in hand with Keats' Ode to a Nightingale. "

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

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Biskin | 5/2/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Therese | 5/1/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry | 4/26/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jonathan | 4/18/2011

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 4/5/2011

    " 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. "

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

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 3/22/2011

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