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.

American literature can be depressing....

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

Dulcet tones to altogether fit the story

In case you're need to tune in to an Audible rendition of The Great Gatsby, yet can't choose which portrayal to go with - go with this one. Tom Chandler has impeccably portrayed this story, with the specific despairing and diary ish tone and feel of the story. This is certainly one of my number one books, made such a ton better with this portrayal.

A Great Story.

This excess parts one of the Classics, and Tom Chandler has an amazing voice for this noticeable structure. A bit of the communicating is barely off, yet deficient , nor as often as adequately possible to be disturbing.

This book is a commendable which is as it ought to

It is stanza covered as organization. Each word has a spot and each mix of words packs inside it a miracle, a critical sharpness, an engaging wantonness that almost fills you with envy for the writer's capacity in utilizing his pen.

Clear, Beautiful, and Exquisitely Textur

I'm a voracious peruser. I consume books (sound, electronic, and paper) by the pound and byte. I RARELY return and repeat a novel I've examined beforehand. It basically has all the earmarks of being a pointless activity, an abuse of an opportunity for another book, another story. The Great Gatsby, in any case, is one of those little bundle of books, those remarkable academic diamonds, where this overall rule is dependably turned and re-broken. For perusers of good composition, this novel looks like hallowed content. IT is something you read to see the value in the page, the segments, the sentences, the words. It steps you back. It frequents future books you read. It assaults you.

Tom Chandler is an amazing narrator

This should be one of my fundamental ten top decisions - it's not possible for anyone to dismiss that this is outstanding amongst other American books anytime created. There's a clarification we all in all need to examine it in optional school, yet dreadfully we're generally too energetic to even think about evening consider understanding it authoritatively at that age.
