I am very much enjoying re-discovering the F. Scott Fitzgerald oeuvre through these new illustrated kindle books. This is a fine edition lovingly illustrated with period images, which help bring the novel even more to life than I can remember. Keep 'em coming!

Slow and dull reading. Not at all like The Great Gatsby, which I inspired me to read more books by Fitzgerald.

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.

Until I came across these beautifully illustrated editions of Fitzgerald's novels I didn't realize the degree to which a fresh edition could make re-reading a classic book like a new experience. These editions are like a voyage of re-discovery of Fitzgerald's wonderful novels.

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.

Really long, took me months to get through this and even then I realised I had no idea what the point of this book was. If you're into classics then try it by all means but don't expect any excitement.

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.

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

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!
