    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel of the Roaring Twenties is beloved by generations of readers and stands as his crowning work. This new audio edition, authorized by the Fitzgerald estate, is narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain). Gyllenhaal's performance is a faithful delivery in the voice of Nick Carraway, the Midwesterner turned New York bond salesman, who rents a small house next door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby....

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

    I would definitely recommend this audio book. Story, style and language was exquisite and the narration managed to enhance a classic book.


    What other book might you compare The Great Gatsby to and why?

    Compares to Steinbeck's Cannery Row in precision and pace.


    Which character – as performed by Jake Gyllenhaal – was your favorite?

    J Gatsby of course.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me think.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the book. It's a steal.
