Publisher's Summary

When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby in the early 1920s, the American Dream was already on the skids. Originally based on the idea that the pursuit of happiness involves not only material success but moral and spiritual growth, the dream had by Fitzgerald's time become increasingly focused on money and pleasure - a phenomenon the high-living writer was only too familiar with.

Good description let down by characters and plot

There is some beautifully rich descriptive text in this, but the characters seemed superficial and unengaging. The narrator was confusing at times because it seems told in first person, but then details are given of situations where the narrator wasn't present and it was hard to figure where the information had come from. It got a bit boring in places, such as the lengthy list of party guests.
