It is time for my Memorable Book letter D. My friend Ashley over at Thrifty Bibliophile created the meme Throwback Thursday- Memorable Book That Starts With the Letter…Again, I don’t think I will post these on Thursdays but, I am doing them anyway. I have fun with these even though some of these I can’t remember much besides the name lol.
The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite classic books that I ever read and one of my favorite academic books that I had to read. The symbolism throughout the book was something I loved talking about in class. It was an exciting day when we got to watch the original movie and I was so excited to see the newest one with DiCaprio. Both films were an excellent adaptation of the book. The book was filled with luster and grandiosity which reflected in how Fitzgerald told the story of Gatsby, Daisy, Nick, and others. The story ends in tragedy but I love this story so much.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Synopsis from Goodreads
THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story is of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his new love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s. The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.
Final Thoughts on Book
GATSBY deserved better! Nick deserved better! Daisy needed to rot honestly lol. She knows she was wrong for everything she did. The writing was not my favorite type of writing but it was something I truly loved. I loved and hated so many of the characters but that is a testament to Fitzgerald’s craft as a writer. This is a book that will stand through the ages.
