One of the most incredible books of the 20th century or just another dusty classic on the bookshelf?
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s magnum opus, The Great Gatsby is probably the most influential classics in the English literature. Yes, it was written in the 1920’s and maybe most individuals would be hesitant to pick it up and start reading, but what most of them don’t know is that the reviews of this book are not in the least exaggerated.
Considering what is considered quality reading today, not all of you will be surprised that right now, The Great Gatsby is not such a great read. But well, today, you may decide what the future is going to be like for you essentially. The classics are said to improve your knowledge and your understanding of universal issues and themes. So why not start now with something contemporary, exciting and satisfying?
Great Gatsby is about the mysterious Jay Gatsby, who is known across New York for his gorgeous, fabulous parties where the New York’s elite enjoy themselves. His neighbour and also the protagonist Nick Carraway is intrigued by his character so much so, that he dares to get close to him, be the only friend he will ever have and help him in no ways imaginable. Set in the ever-charming Jazz age, this novel truly captures the meaning of a classic!
This book deserves more attention than it has been granted by the public, and I think we should give it the dignity it deserves!
I would recommend it to anyone and considering I am 18 and have read it and loved it, don’t you think it is a time you tried?
