I read The Great Gatsby in college many decades ago and saw the film quite recently. This Connell Guide was riveting - so full of insights that helped expand my understanding of why this novel is deservedly so highly regarded. Just the detail of the 'Getz' name that morphed into Gatsby was typical of the depth of insight that this guide gives. It left me in awe of the skill and art of F Scott Fitzgerald and determined me to read the book again, probably with this guide at my side. My next step will be the guide to Macbeth and I hope that they will eventually do a guide to Henry V - it covers unnecessary foreign wars and their domestic harm and I'd love to see them cover it with the same competence as they have done with The Great Gatsby
