Lets do the Charleston, dance that is!

Would you consider the audio edition of A+ Audio Study Guide to be better than the print version?

The Audible edition of The Great Gatsby is delightful in that there is music playing, while the introduction paints a picture of the times and creates an atmosphere that puts you in the mood to listen to this romantic love story. The storyteller also gives you a background story about the author, making you think the author is an observer in the middle of the plot. The storyteller then explains how the book was written and how it was accepted when it was first published and how peoples perception of the book changed over time. The storyteller has a very sophisticated voice which allows him to surround you with the feeling of upper class society, and when the story is over, he gives you a summary (critical analysis) of the story and how it all happened, leaving you with something to think about.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I could relate to the story since I have had several affairs in which betrayal took place, leaving me with a broken heart.
