Elegant, enigmatic Jay Gatsby yearns for his old love, the beautiful Daisy. But she is married to the insensitive if hugely successful Tom Buchanan, who won’t let her go despite having a mistress himself. In their wealthy haven, these beguiling lives are brought together by the innocent and entranced narrator, Nick – until their decadent deceits spill into violence and tragedy. Part morality tale, part fairy tale, The Great Gatsby is the consummate novel of the Jazz Age. Its tenderness and poetry make it one of the great works of the 20th century.

The Very Good Gatsby
- Ian C Robertson "Eclectic mixer of books of my youth and ones I always meant to read, but didn't."
Yes. It was well read by the narrator, and of course it is one of the best books ever written.
The setting, the tale of unrequited love-- even though Gatsby turns out to be a stalker.
This might sound odd, but his voice seemed to fit with the era.
