    (2443)

    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....

    Story
    If you could sum up The Great Gatsby in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, blinding, tragic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a classic. It presents a glaring portrait into the period, love and a man.


    What about Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance did you like?

    Jake Gyllenhaal's performance was nothing short of perfect. It's ironic, I have never been a huge admirer of his acting but having heard him perform Gatsby I don't think any other reader would ever do for me from here on out. I believe another reviewer indicated sometimes you find the perfect narrator for a given novel. Gyllenhaal is definitely that for Gatsby.
