Title: The Great Gatsby
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Year: 1926

It’s the funniest thing Old Sport…

This book is very short (140 pages). It is narrated by a third party observer, Carraway, who observes the events that happen between Gatsby, Tom and Daisy. Gatsby is a self-made millionaire who is deeply enamoured with Daisy.

This book is set in the 1920’s and shows the extravagance of that age. The parties that Gatsby throws reflect the fast pace industry and wealth of America at the time. There is also a cynical overtone to the book which culminates at Gatsby’s fate.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and I recommend that you read it.
