Publisher's summary

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers.

The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession", it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

After meeting and losing Daisy during the war, Gatsby has made himself fabulously wealthy. Now, he believes that his only way to true happiness is to find his way back into Daisy’s life, and he uses Nick to try to reach her. What happens when the characters’ fantasies are confronted with reality makes for a startling conclusion to this iconic masterpiece.

Goodness! Incredible

Charming, dramatic, and clever now and again. Numerous incredible life exercises in this story. One of my best 5 to tune in to once more. Tuned in sum in one day. The storyteller unquestionably made it a simple tune in, incredible voice changes, and not off-kilter. I figure each youngster ought to hear it out. As they go through life ideally they will review how vainglorious practices don't acquire you companions or sweethearts eventually.

American literature can be depressing....

The Camel's Back short story is the best part. Glad I read TGG, though. Iconic.

Continuously an extraordinary read!

I planned to utilize my credit on the other book recording described by Tom Chandler. I choose to keep the credit and get this rendition. I was not baffled. I read the book years prior yet it felt so ideal to return and give it another read.

Annoying voice

I haven’t listened to it because the voice annoys me so much. Would recommend looking for a book with another reader
