Publisher's Summary

Fitzgerald's short stories have themes that not only relate to the problems and culture of the Jazz Age, but also to the promises and despair encountered by the youth, as well as the aging. Love and relationships between two mismatched or unlikely characters are common, such as people who are unlikely to develop a spark of romantic interest between each other.
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.

Do not listen to this while driving!

Any additional comments?

Driving while listening to this book can be hazardous. However, if insomnia is a problem that you suffer from, this narrator may be the perfect remedy.

If Fitzgerald only knew...

Would you listen to The Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald again? Why?

I would listen to some segments again because a well turned phrase is worth keeping.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not applicable in this review

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jay Wohlert?

In what language? I cannot assuage the "narrator's" ego as he simply does not have command of his own apparent only spoken tongue. The English language should seek succor as Wohlert's massacre of non Anglo-Saxon words and phrases reminds one of the "De Güello" at the Alamo. But, no mercy is shown and the slaughter piques curiosity as to which word is to be mutilated and sacrificed next.In summary, I have listened to other narrated Fitzgerald stories but I will never willingly self inflict another narrated by Wolfort.Before critiquing this review, listen for yourself and then respond.GL

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Any additional comments?

Kindly remember that slander is only classified as slander when what is said is NOT true.

Overall rating is adversely weighted by the anchoring albatross.

Poor Scott

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.
