Publisher's Summary

When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby in the early 1920s, the American Dream was already on the skids. Originally based on the idea that the pursuit of happiness involves not only material success, but moral and spiritual growth, the dream had, by Fitzgerald's time, become increasingly focused on money and pleasure - a phenomenon with which the high-living writer was all too familiar.

Great book but the reader spoils it

What made the experience of listening to The Great Gatsby the most enjoyable?

The classic story!

What aspect of Alan Munro’s performance might you have changed?

The entire demeanor characters aren't distinguishable enough and the pace of speech is clumsy and gapped.

Any additional comments?

Great story but the Shatner-esque speech of the reader takes me out of the story
