    Gatsby

    So I read Gatsby the first time and hated it. I mean, I absolutely had to struggle through each page. But back then, my teacher didn't know **** about how to read, she only knew how to pronounce the words and read out of the teacher's manual. But after that first reading, I went...

    Gatsby.

    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!

    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.
