Book Review – The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald

I didn’t like most of the characters in this book as they had too much money for their own good. This is down to the superb writing of course and the setting of the scenes.

Gatsby is infatuated with Daisy who is married to Tom and has a friend called Jordan. The narrator, Nick Caraway, lives next door to Jay Gatsby and gets included in the lavish parties Jay throws to attract Daisy who lives across the waters of Long Island in New York. He becomes friends with both Daisy and Jay and is viewed by Jay as a catalyst for him taking Daisy away from Tom. Jay has been infatuated with Daisy since they first met in Lousiville five years previously. Tom has a mistress whose untimely demise leads to the rather shocking conclusion.

Recommended and on to the next Fitzgerald book in about 83 books time…

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
