Description

A true classic of twentieth-century literature, this edition has been updated by Fitzgerald scholar James L.W. West III to include the author’s final revisions and features a note on the composition and text, a personal foreword by Fitzgerald’s granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan—and a new introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

  • Awful and overrated.

    Uses lazy plot devices and coincidences to drive the plot. I feel like this book is only famous because some wannabe English teacher said it’s good.
  • An American classic. Astounding book.

    Read this for English and let me tell you, the language of the book was quite hard to understand at certain parts. I don't understand how this became a classic either, it's just meh. The story/plot is great. I absolutely love the idea. The fact of the matter is that it could have been executed much better. All in all, only read it if you absolutely have to. If you don't need to, I'm sure one of the movies will do a good enough job.
  • A romantic read of a 20s drama

    I’m in love with this book. I’ve read it twice. The characters are unique and intriguing. The book inspires hope and lust for tomorrow by using the romances and cliches of the 20s. This is a good book for a gift or for travel. A must read.
