    Summary of the Book

    The Great Gatsby - a novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald - beautifully captures the mood of the 1920s and the inanity of the postwar American society that was obsessed with wealth and status. The narrator - Nick Carraway - is a bond broker in Manhattan who talks about his eccentric and enigmatic neighbour Jay Gatsby - a self-made millionaire. Gatsby hosts extravagant parties for a “who’s who” guest list, where his guests are unaware of their host. Carraway becomes cynically fascinated and entranced by Gatsby, and they strike a bond of friendship that nurtures many confidences. But, little does Carraway know that the parties were for that one chance for his reunion with his loved one - Daisy Buchanan, who is Nick Carraway’s cousin. Carraway soon learns that Daisy and Gatsby have a history, and arranges for a meeting between them. In the meantime, Daisy’s husband, Tom Buchanan, grows increasingly queasy about Gatsby. Through this tragic romance, Fitzgerald unveils the mentality of the American society in the roaring 20s, social status, wealth and infidelity.

    I had seen a part of movie before I started the book.. so while reading I was imagining all the characters the way I have seen in the movie. the story is set in an era when world war is over and stock market is running high in people lives. a beautifully told story, each character given the utmost importance and once you start reading the book writer takes you on to roller coaster ride into the world which you can only imagine now. I fell in love with Gatsby, confident, smart, handsome, rich ...

    Must read novels like these TWICE at least..

    U might have heard abt "The Great Gatsby" everywhere, listed on top novels of all time and every website , considered as America's greatest work of literature , etc .

    HOW TO APPROACH THIS BOOK:
    Give it a read once , then after the first read watch some lectures on youtube about this book(I watched the Yale university lecture) , there are many professors discussing about this book. After hearing lecture please give it a second read . U'd love it more.

    Don't Buy Harper Collins Edition. Go for Cambridge or Oxford or Penguin India Edition

    Don't buy Harper Collins Edition of 'The Great Gatsby'. It's not worth the money. The paper quality of this edition is very low. Buy Cambridge or Oxford or Penguin India Edition.

    Both Cambridge and Oxford Editions are available on Flipkart itself at the time of writing this review.

    Horrible editing

    I want to make sure that every reader who buys The Great Gatsby enjoys the magical prose of Scott Fitzgerald. However for me reading the 'Cambridge edition' of The Great Gatsby was no less but a pain in the head. There are so many typo errors in this edition that you feel like giving up and buying a new version from some other publishing press. Disappointing. Lovers of literature, please look elsewhere, and try and get the other editions online, cause this one is horrible.

    Indeed! The Great Gatsby.

    The Great Gatsby (1st Edition), by F. Scott Fitzgerald is one book you will love love reading, especially if you have watched the movie with the same title 'The Great Gatsby.' Instantly, I could connect the scenes of the movie as I read through the book, which made it all the more thrilling.

    'The Great Gatsby' is my personal favourite. I watched the movie first and liked it so much that I decided to do this topic for my Masters in English Dissertation.

    The 1st edition of this book, publish...
