Forget the film, and just read the book!,

This review is from: The Great Gatsby (Kindle Edition)
It is nearly 40 years since I first read Gatsby. It was a complete pleasure to re-visit it. It is often described as one of the great American novels. It fully justifies that billing and for those who may not have read it, I would urge you to do so, but please forget the film adaptations which, as is usually the case, do the story no credit. Luxuriate in Fitzgerald's use of language and revel in the Jazz Age with a society trying to come to terms with Prohibition and the aftermath of the 'war to end all wars'. Brilliant!
