    Forever amazing!

    Forever amazing. And for what it's worth, I don't even usually like anything written pre-2000s. And that's saying a lot.

    Five Stars

    The first time I read Gatsby I was 14 - I read it because I wanted to start reading classics and there was a movie adaptation of Gatsby coming so it made sense for me to read this. I was extremely disapointed. I expected this amazing, big, extravagant, party story. None of this came, however. I felt as if I'd missed something in the book, because so many people love, adore, worship it. Last week I felt the urge to reread it. And this time I wasn't disapointed. On the contrary, I absolutely love it now! I finally understood the value of its simplicity, the beautifully written sentences! I finally understood why everybody loves it, why it is considered a classic.

    Great Book

    Personally I think it's not one of my favorites, but it has a great message to the audience. I think it is very heavily influenced by symbolism. The green light, the rich dressed in white, the eyes of T. J. Eckleburg, the overly lavish parties, and many more aspects of the book show that morality declines when people become selfish and materialistic.

    Astonishing amazing novel!

    Read this for class, it was interesting; not bad, just unique. It really captures the time period and leaves an impact. The only thing is, it's almost impossible to tell what the story's actually about until the last few pages.

    FIVE STARS

    Found this book hard to put down. It made some interesting points about the lengths some people are willing to go to continue their facades in life in attempts at getting, "what they want". It also illustrates when you get what you want, sometimes, you are left just as empty and unhappy as when you started. I think the Great Gatsby is about the pursuit of something which may be inherently illusory, happiness. Gatsby Tries to recapture his past, yet in the end, Gatsby is only chasing after the illusory illusion of what he remembers his life to have been, which, prevents him from finding happiness and love once more. Gatsby ends up dying in pursuit of both ideas which may make him really great in some peoples eyes or really mediocre, I guess this is a toss up for the readers to decide!
