The divide between Eastern and Western culture becomes obvious in this thinly veiled social satire disguised as a romance/drama. Nick travels through WASP social circles accompanied by Tom and Daisy, but he never manages to blend in. Throughout the story he commentson, as if from a great distance, the tedious and insipid behavior of party goers at Gatsby's mansion and the shallow and desperate nature of Toms affair with a dull mechanic's wife. Even his relationship with Jordan (a fellow Westerner) is tainted by the strangely disconnected social norms because it seems that Jordan has become "one of them." Most appalling (both to the reader and Nick) si the behavior of Gatsby's "friends" after his murder; those whom Nick contacts refuse to commit to coming to the funeral, and when pushed they openly refuse to be involved in the drama of the situation. They were willing to use Gatsby for his money, his social connections, and his party-friendly house, but they were too busy gossiping about his alleged past to actually get to know him. The Great Gatsby is often seen as a good romp with a nice twist at the end, but I find it an excellent example of what is wrong with American society, and generally with the world. Shallowness abounds... ( )

One of those books I didn't appreciate when my high school literature teacher assigned it, but after impulsively picking up my grandfather's 1975 copy with a section of glossy photos in the center over Christmas break, the characters, plot, and atmosphere Fitzgerald created made me wonder what our generation would be termed. Are we "disillusioned?" Are we irreversibly, pathetically jaded? Will the term for our generation be cynical? What will it be? Where will we fit in the picture of American history? Do the factors that shaped Fitzgerald's characters differ fundamentally from the world we currently live in? The Great Gatsby was thought-provoking for me, quick enough to digest and experience without getting too distracted from the details. ( )

TWs: domestic abuse, character death, suicide

The Great Gatsby is a novel that I find fascinating from a literary perspective, but fails to impress me on a purely emotional level. It does some quite clever things with its prose. During the course of the story Nick ends up drunk in a man's room, with the guy being only in his underwear, an encounter preceded by a suggestive scene about the same man touching an elevator lever and somehow nobody notices the queer subtext because of Fitzgerald's skill in hiding stuff in plain sight.
However none of the characters clicked with me, and the story felt kind of pointless in some ways, so I can't really justify a high rating. ( )

Grabbed this off the shelf for some shorter reading while I'm sort-of-traveling for work. It feels a little weird writing a review of this that isn't the "ZOMG GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL" blurb that always gets tossed around, but I liked this quite a bit. Fitzgerald's style sits in a good place between feeling old and feeling new, and (as someone who isn't much of a partier) I think he nails the sometimes-weirdness of parties. I guess my complaint is that it feels like every character is painted in broad strokes, and there isn't a ton of nuance to be found here. Still, though, you can see where the praise comes from. ( )

Potentially, I should reread this. I read it at 12 and barely got through it. Then again, it may just not have been for me.

The Great Gatsby is a romance novel that written by American Author F.Scott Fitzgerald.This novel is talk about the New Yorker in 1900s.The Great Gatsby is a classic piece of American fiction. It is a novel full of triumph and tragedy.Nick Carraway is the narrator, or storyteller, of The Great Gatsby, but he is not the story's protagonist, or main character. Instead, Jay Gatsby is the protagonist of the novel that bears his name. Tom Buchanan is the book's antagonist, opposing Gatsby's attempts to get what he wants: Tom's wife Daisy.

The weakness of this book is they using the classic languange and a little difficult to understand.The weakness also about Gatsby affection to Daisy,He spends that money on lavish parties in the hopes that she will show up.When she finally spends time with him, for the first time in many years, he naively believes that she will leave Tom for him but,unfortunately she is not.

However,the strength of this book is the writer are using the unique title so the reader are feel sympathy and curious about it, also the characteristic about Jay Gatsby that teach the reader many lesson.

To conclude,this book is the very recommended book,especially High School students because Fitzgerald’s novel is a portal to the savage heart of the human spirit, and wonders at our enormous capacity to dream, to imagine, to hope and to persevere.

The great Gatsby is truly a romance book like no other.F.SCOTT.Switzgerald describing about the life of New Yorker in 1900s.This novel is very popular many students if high school are required by their teachers to read this book.The narrator of The Great Gatsby is a young man from Minnesota named Nick Carraway. He not only narrates the story but casts himself as the book’s author.As ive read about this book,Gatsby’s personality was nothing short of “gorgeous.”

moreover,the weakness about this book is hard to understand if u are not really pay attention on it.this novel is about a contradiction,Gatsby's idealism makes him blind.He doesn't see that Daisy can't have love and money, just money. Gatsby can't turn back time.He even doesn't see death coming toward him.

However,the strength of this book something quite different from others,it is the charm and beauty of writing,has many important meanings that should be learned early on in life.

To conclude,what i can say is don't be too obsessed just because you have so much money,money ain't last forever.but overall its a magnificent,fantastically, entertaining and enthralling story.

"The Great Gatsby" is in form no more than a glorified anecdote, and not too probable at that

What gives the story distinction is something quite different from the management of the action or the handling of the characters; it is the charm and beauty of the writing.

I find Gatsby aesthetically overrated, psychologically vacant, and morally complacent; I think we kid ourselves about the lessons it contains. None of this would matter much to me if Gatsby were not also sacrosanct.

There is the convoluted moral logic, simultaneously Romantic and Machiavellian, by which the most epically crooked character in the book is the one we are commanded to admire. There’s the command itself: the controlling need to tell us what to think, both in and about the book. There’s the blanket embrace of that great American delusion by which wealth, poverty, and class itself stem from private virtue and vice. There’s Fitzgerald’s unthinking commitment to a gender order so archaic as to be Premodern: corrupt woman occasioning the fall of man. There is, relatedly, the travesty of his female characters—single parenthesis every one, thoughtless and thin. (Don’t talk to me about the standards of his time; the man hell-bent on being the voice of his generation was a contemporary of Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf, not to mention the great groundswell of activists who achieved the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Yet here he is in A Short Autobiography: “Women learn best not from books or from their own dreams but from reality and from contact with first-class men.”)

It is an impressive accomplishment. And yet, apart from the restrained, intelligent, beautifully constructed opening pages and a few stray passages thereafter—a melancholy twilight walk in Manhattan; some billowing curtains settling into place at the closing of a drawing-room door—Gatsby as a literary creation leaves me cold. Like one of those manicured European parks patrolled on all sides by officious gendarmes, it is pleasant to look at, but you will not find any people inside.

Indeed, The Great Gatsby is less involved with human emotion than any book of comparable fame I can think of. None of its characters are likable. None of them are even dislikable, though nearly all of them are despicable. They function here only as types, walking through the pages of the book like kids in a school play who wear sashes telling the audience what they represent: OLD MONEY, THE AMERICAN DREAM, ORGANIZED CRIME.

Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.
All right ... I'm glad it's a girl. And I hope she'll be a fool—that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.
This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens, where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air. Occasionally a line of gray cars crawls along an invisible track, gives out a ghastly creak and comes to rest, and immediately the ash-gray men swarm up with leaden spades and stir up an impenetrable cloud which screens their obscure operations from your sight.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me. "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
I rented a house ... on that slender riotous island which extends itself due east of new york -- where there are, among other natural curiosities, two unusual formations of land. Twenty miles from the city a pair of enormous eggs, identical in contour and seprated only by a courtesy bay, jut out into the most domesticated body of salt water in the Western hemisphere, the great wet barnyard of Long Island Sound. They are not perfect ovals ... but their physical resembalnce must be a source of perpetual wonder to the gullsthat fly overhead.
