See the film, but do read the book!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Gatsby (Kindle Edition)
Go and see the film, but please please read the book also. The film has all the key elements, and despite some of the reviews I enjoyed it, but the prose in the book is such a delight that I urge you to read it.
Also, not sure if's just me, but the chapter where Nick is trying so hard to find people to attend the funeral had me in tears, such was the tragedy of the empty and one sided "relationship" Gatsby had with his acquaintances. I've not seen that well depicted in any drama adaptation.
This is the sort of book to keep and re-read every few years, you'll always be delighted you thought to revisit it.
