    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....

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

    I have only listened to two audio books; one of them was a Hank Zipzer book written and read by Henry Winkler. It's difficult to compare a classic with a kid`s book. I enjoyed Winkler`s reading since it was more animated. Jake Gyllenhaal did a good job overall. He was however soft spoken and monotoned when he wasn't a character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gatsby because I could relate to pining for a lost love. He makes one realize not to live in the past.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jake Gyllenhaal?

    No.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a good children's book try the audio books of the Hank Zipzer series.
