    Jay Gatsby is still in love with Daisy, whom he met during the war when he was penniless. Having made himself wealthy through illegal means, he now lives in a mansion across the bay from the home of Daisy Buchanan, who has since married for money. Holding on to his illusion of Daisy as perfect, he seeks to impress her with his wealth, and uses his new neighbor, Nick Carraway, (our narrator), to reach her.

    Where does The Great Gatsby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great book! Fitzgerald is not a great writer of women, but the creation of the characters of this era (Gatsby and Nick) are spot on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick is my favorite; he's a non-judgemental observer of this life.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Anthony Heald?

    Yes


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I listenend to it in the car back and forth to work - the sections were short enough to follow the story in short bursts!


    Any additional comments?

    Great classic - short and easy to listen to.

    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

    Great audiobook, but if you haven't read it in a while (or ever) - my advice is to skip the introduction. It assumes you've read the book and basically gives the entire storyline away in 12 sentences!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters are misguided in blindly following the leaders, so the story ends up making you dislike all of the characters...especially the pigs!!
