Product description

In The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald brilliantly captures both the disillusion of post-war America and the moral failure of a society obsessed with wealth and status. But he does more than render the essence of a particular time and place, for in chronicling Gatsby's tragic pursuit of his dream, Fitzgerald recreates the universal conflict between illusion and reality.

This is my all time favourite book. Fitzgerald's writing is captivating and poetic and I never cease to be drawn into the world of Carraway, Gatsby and Daisy.
The fact that it's from Nick's POV intensifies the mystery that surrounds Gatsby and paints a romanticised picture of the 1920s and the debauchery in that era.
If you're a fan of literature, or were just wondering whether the movie is as good as the book then definitely give it a go. It's beautiful.
