The Great Gatsby – by F Scott Fitzgerald

24 03 2019

After loving Rebecca, I felt more confident and so picked up another 20th Century Classic from my bookcase.

Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this one so much – I persevered primarily because it was only 180 pages and wasn’t necessarily difficult to read, it just didn’t feel like anything was happening at all until about 40 pages from the end! Upon finishing my main feeling was just relief that I could tick it off and move onto something else.

It’s supposedly one of the greatest pieces of American Literature, but I just didn’t get it – not one for me!
