    Feel the texture of Fitzgerald's language as master reader Alexander Scourby, with cool precision, unfolds the mystery of Jay Gatsby. A true classic of American literature, The Great Gatsby celebrates a "heightened sensibility to the promises of life," an American capacity for hope that remains unsullied even by the falsity of what it pursues. Fitzgerald's clean, elegant style evokes to perfection the glitter and charm of the Jazz Age, as well as the falseness of its values.

    Overall

    My sister and I listened to this on our way from New York to Washington and we ended up sitting in the car for almost an hour after we arrived so we could hear the ending, though we'd both read it previously. The Great Gatsby is an incredibly beautiful and lyrical book, and manages to be both a work of great literature and a riveting mystery. This recording is brought to life by Scourby, who is an eloquent speaker and ideal for the role of Nick Carraway, who as a young midwesterner unused to the decadence of New York in the twenties looks on with a careful and unbiased eye, remarking on every telling detail. Highly recommended!
