The Great Gatsby Review
The Great Gatsby is a novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald where a young man named Jay Gatsby navigates the life of the Roaring Twenties in his wealthy circle all in the name of love for one person. It can be surmised very quickly that there’s a reason this became a literary classic. This is a novel with something to say about the American lifestyle and the struggle to attain a certain goal. It speaks to the larger idea of the American Dream and what it means. While nothing really happens in the novel other than some parties and a few major events here and there Fitzgerald seems to want to say something and one must read between those lines to fully understand the review and what it’s trying to say about the culture of materialism. Gatsby is a really compelling character as is Tom Buchanan and Nick Carraway despite being little more than a narrator and side character does have his moments. This is one of those novels for people who like to dig deep into dialogue and symbolism and imagery among other literary aspects. And at that, it succeeds and when a reader comes into it with that attitude they get the most out of it and really learn more.
