Publisher's Summary

No one - fictional or factual - embodies the Jazz Age as completely as F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby. First published in 1925, this legendary novel continues to enthrall generations as it serves as a lens to view our not-so-distant past. Many of our notions about that period are taken from this book. Bathtub gin, flappers, and house parties that last all week enliven Fitzgerald's classic tale. Stylish and engaging, The Great Gatsby is also a startling literate portrait of Gatsby's search for meaning in his opulent world. 

With his sharp social insight and breathtaking lyricism, Fitzgerald stands out as one of the most important American writers of the 20th century. Frank Muller's timeless interpretation enhances the imagery of Gatsby's stylish and unfulfilling world with brilliance and insight beyond the printed word.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!

This is definitely one of the greatest books ever written. Its narrator is absolutely superb with inflection tone grammar poise and a speaking style that is second to none. I highly recommend listening to this book especially if you’ve never listened or even read The Great Gatsby. Its a wonder to behold and to listen to.

The Gold Standard

This version from 1997 is the only version you need to experience. The characters voices are expertly delivered with enough differentiation to help through dialogues yet all still connected to the reader’s own delivery. I can’t recommend this over other other versions enough.

Classic

What a masterful writer was F. Scott Fitzgerald. Descriptive passages in the hands of lesser writers nearly always deteriorate into annoying purple prose as these wannabes grope for ever more fanciful $10 words and phrasing; they should leave it to those rare experts who have the gift of writing in their bones. (With thanks to Ernest Hemingway who started the housecleaning revolution with his spare prose.)

My personal opinion is that this novel is vastly overrated in the lexicon of American literature; however, it remains an engaging tale of rich people with too much time and too much money to live meaningful lives.

Frank Muller's narration is, as always, outstanding. We continue to feel his loss.
