The story we already had read in the news . Now we understand the backstage of this great scoop and huge leak. Fantastic narration, I must add.

I could see (hear, in fact :-) why this book is considered a classic. Deep investigation, great characters, a new way to do journalism - and still valid.

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

Yes. It shows a very different world, a parallel universe, wealthy but frivolous. Despite being a classic about early 1900's, remains actual.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nick. Because he is good at understanding people.

What does Jake Gyllenhaal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent. As a non-american, it's interesting to realize how different are the midwesterns, westerns and eastern characters in the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

classic but actual

Any additional comments?

It wasn't easy for me to fully understand what was being narrated. The outdated style of Fitzgerald, the unused words and maybe the cool narration of Gyllenhaal put me in trouble sometimes. I had to reduce the speed of narration in some segments. Challenging for non english native speaker...

This was my first audio book, and I got hooked! Congratulations for either the writer and the narrator. I loved the french accent and the #$&%$&% dirty words...
