5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! An American classic.
It is many years since I last read F Scott Fitzgerald. I had forgotten just how well he used the language. I am amazed that he is American!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite average
Slow and dull reading. Not at all like The Great Gatsby, which I inspired me to read more books by Fitzgerald.

4.0 out of 5 stars I *heart* Fiztgerald, 2 May 2014

This review is from: The Beautiful and Damned (Kindle Edition)
I love his writing, the detail, the slight disgust for women and anything that doesnt fit his ideal. I especially love the period details of live on a shoestring wing and pray before he gets the money. I definitely think I was born in the wrong era, because I love the shoes in the 20's and 30's - period.

I really didn't want to like the main characters in this book, but was compelled to follow them to the end. By avoiding the traditional 'comeuppance' for unpleasant shallow people, FS Fitzgerald enhances the opulent, vacant lives they end up surviving.

Fitzgerald maintains both period and present revelance in his observation of men and women placed in and forced to react to various events and situations

This is an old and well known book by a very well known author. Recently released remake of the film has added the appeal to read the book. Very good read.
