Not really. It's the story of the drunken excess of the rich. How did this ever get to be a classic? The reader doesn't know Gatsby when the story opens and still doesn't know him when it ends.
Probably Gatsby - I kept trying to get to know him. Unfortunately, that never happened.
I don't believe I've heard him to a narrative before.
The defining moment was when Gatsby learns he has no real friends.
I am not much of a reader AT ALL, so when I was assigned to read this for school I was not that excited. I decided to listen to the book on audio to help me focus and it sure did work. Once I was done with the book I wanted there to be more to read, I LOVED IT!!!! more than I have ever loved any other book. A must read for everyone.
audio narration was so dull that I dozed off frequently. narration was horrible. would not recommend to any one.
Add in some content.
Gatsby. I think he hit the mark on this voice.
I started reading this years ago and could not get into it. I thought maybe the audible version would be better. I did finish it this time, but I seriously do not understand why this is considered a classic.
I read this before in high school and I've been writing a continous story for it online. It's nice to have it able to be listen to. Plus I like the narriator quite a bit.
I do not understand why people like this book, or how they made it into a movie. This has been the most boring story I have ever read or listened to.
