    The Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald is a collection of 45 novels and short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald's short stories have themes that not only relate to the problems and culture of the Jazz Age, but were also about the promises and despair encountered by the young, as well as aging. Love and relationships between two mismatched or unlikely characters, such as people who are unlikely to develop a spark of romantic interest between each other, is common.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Fitzgerald's prose was mutilated by the narrator. He mispronounced word after word and his imitations of female and other voices were very distracting. I finally had to quit listening to it.


    If you’ve listened to books by F. Scott Fitzgerald before, how does this one compare?

    Compares extremely unfavorably. This involves his very early work that is not as mature as later works and the narration did a great harm to the work.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jay Wohlert’s performances?

    No
