    Long considered the first great American novel, this delightful classic is brought to life by excellent actor Chris Hendrie, who creates scores of memorable characters. This is a tale of a young runaway boy's adventures on the Mississippi River with his friend Jim, a runaway slave. The unlikely pair survive an incredible journey and become the best of friends, overcoming racism and hardships as they search for freedom.

    After the smashing success of his first novel, This Side of Paradise, written when he was 23, F. Scott Fitzgerald rocked the literary world with his masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, in l925 - a passionate love story about a poor young man's unwavering love for the lovely Daisy, belle of Louisville. Told with extraordinarily beautiful language, Fitzgerald's characters sizzle with vitality and life as Gatsby pursues the love of his life amid the splendor of his Long Island estate by throwing truly amazing parties set to the music of the Jazz Age.

    Scott says: "Great Reading of Gatsby"
    "Wonderful reading of Fitzgerald Masterpiece."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I downloaded "The Great Gatsby" after watching the movie in the theaters. I loved Chris Hendrie's narration. His soothing voice and narration of the characters really brought the book to life. It was the perfect way to spend time sitting in LA traffic...suddenly I didn't mind my hour long commute. Terrific reading, wonderful story...I'd highly recommend downloading this audiobook!


    What does Chris Hendrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Chris Hendrie is a talented actor and narrates the story beautifully. His performance is entertaining and the story really comes to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend downloading this audiobook -- very enjoyable!!!
