The debut novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise takes its title from a line of the Rupert Brooke poem 'Tiare Tahiti'. The book examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Its protagonist, Amory Blaine, is an attractive Princeton University student who dabbles in literature and conveys the book's theme of love warped by greed and status-seeking.

    " Autobiographical romp thorough college (Princeton) and young adult romantic angst. The universe with a young F. Scott at the center. Some wonderfully descriptive prose throughout. Sets the stage for the Great Gatsby. "

    " I began reading This Side of Paradise, fully expecting to love it. Almost three years after graduating from Princeton, I was seeking nostalgia. I guess Amory's world and mine are just too different. I only related to the first half of the book through geography. I actually enjoyed the second half more, and I appreciate how Fitzgerald plays with different mediums (prose, poetry, plays, etc.) throughout. "
