    I Particularly Liked "The Pat Hobby Stories"

    I am currently reading a collection of short stories by him, but I have loved everything that I've read by him so far! I would like to pursue more of his novels after I read this.

    The Great American Novelist?

    "The Great Gatsby" is deceptively short and simple for a modern masterpiece,but that's precisely what is is. "Tender is the Night " is rather good too. Erudite but eminently readable.

    I Haven't Really Read It Yet.

    But am looking forward to receiving my copies soon. After watching the movie I just knew I had to read the book. Wanted to get the original book but they are so dear! So have been resorting for something close. Will share my experience soon!

    Gatsby.

    My first experience with Fitzgerald was reading The Great Gatsby in high school. It was a touching piece of literature and reading it felt very natural and very real; it seemed as if there was something in that book that everybody could relate to. Of course I watched the movie...
