The plots are usually set in the culture of the upper middle class and the elite, with characters either from this social group or aspiring to become part of it. Being inspired by the events that occurred during The Great Depression and the stock market crash, the stories also involve characters who lose wealth, but who are still trying to maintain their opulent lifestyle.
However, Fitzgerald's stories will remain relevant no matter which era listeners are born into, as finding true love and happiness, despite the situation, will always be a common part of the human experience.

I love F. Scott and never mind the readers slow reading style, that's how F. Scott books usually read.
But it became grueling to try and ignore him mispronounce words (WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY). Eventually I found myself looking for the "next" mispronounced word.
Here are a few
impotent, antipathy, imperiously, celtic, modicum, row, automation, erudite, impotency, fatuously, recitation, impudently, sophistry, and 100s more

Fitzgerald's sophisticates are badly served by an un-directed reader who reads out foreign words and famous names like a baby learning its first words. Really irritating.

The worst narrator I have ever encountered
What disappointed you about The Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald?
I have honestly no idea how good the story was, I was too preoccupied attempting to endure the monotonous dravel of the reader.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jay Wohlert?
Anyone who can pronounce basic words correctly.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I tried, I really did, but it was terrible.
Any additional comments?
Do not buy this book.
