The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald Book Summary

An Apple Books Classics edition.

The Roaring Twenties are in full effect in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s riveting classic. Man-about-town Jay Gatsby seems to have it all, including loads of money and a massive mansion where he hosts wild, extravagant parties every Saturday. But Gatsby’s missing one thing: Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life, the one who got away.

The Great Gatsby explores the impossible, but uniquely human, longing to return to the past and the costs associated with chasing the American Dream. It’s a beautifully written, entertaining read with timeless emotional appeal.

The Great Gatsby. F. Scott Fitzgerald is a phenomenal writer. I loved the depths he dove into when writing. I just hated the relationships in it. It could have had such a great potential with the beginning of the story, but when it ended, I felt deflated and flat. Not one I would necessarily recommend.

Sorry I’m going back to. Sorry I’m going

Gf you guys. For sure if I get to

A real page turner. Read in a matter of hours. Not a minute that was not interesting.

Must Read!!. Spellbound reading of a great classic! So many twists and turns and breathtaking surprises. Beautiful art. Thank goodness! Thank you F. Scott!!

Beautiful example of symbolism. This book is full of symbolism and really encourages you to read between the lines. I love the characters and their relationships, how they change in the story, and how beautifully tragic the entire story is.

To love and be loved as Gatsby loved Daisy. A tragic tale of a man who would reinvent himself to fit into shallow promises of love.

As relevant today as it was then.. Terrific.

Great. One of my most favorites. Re-reading this brought back the joy I had lost in reading

Wonderful!. Great story!

The Marginally Ok Gatsby. Meh.

We will get together for more hours. I’m not going anywhere for my life I have

Great. Best

Overrated. I was always told to read this. I was disappointed by the book.

I don’t think I. I’m not sure

The Great Gatsby. An invaluable lesson of letting go since we don’t always get what we want. Life is short and fragile.

The Great Gatsby. Even better with time. Well told tale of the fickleness of people and the frailness of life.

Interesting, not like I had thought!. Not the way I expected! Very interesting story even though some parts weren’t what I typically read or listen! Tried to find the last movie version and couldn’t get a copy!

Part of the American canon. A frenetic classic American gothic dream.

Wonderful!. Love this book!

A work of art. Fitzgerald blessed us with a book that goes over themes of romance, festivity, and passion. It was simply perfect and it has always been my favorite book since the first time I was assigned to read it my sophomore year.

A gripping story, a fabulous style and bewitching images. Gatsby believes that money will buy him friendship, love, respectability and will erase the lost years. He irritates us sometimes, but we forgive him, because he’s gifted with hope, generosity and a touching naivety reminiscent of childhood. Fitzgerald excels at revealing the criminal flippancy of the poor, who end up paying for their mistakes, and that of the rich, who cynically escape their actions’ consequences. The fabulous style, the bewitching images and the author’s way of showing the emotions in subtle and effective means add to the illusion and lead us, with the hero, into nostalgic daydreams. We let ourselves be seduced by Daisy’s voice, overwhelmed by Tom’s presence and enchanted by Gatsby’s smile. For me, this book is a masterpiece and I can’t resist the pleasure of sharing an excerpt. “A breeze blew through the room, blew curtains in at one end and out the other like pale flags, twisting them up toward the frosted wedding-cake of the ceiling, and then rippled over the wine-colored rug, making a shadow on it as wind does on the sea. The only completely stationary object in the room was an enormous couch on which two young women were buoyed up as though upon an anchored balloon. They were both in white, and their dresses were rippling and fluttering as if they had just been blown back in after a short flight around the house. I must have stood for a few moments listening to the whip and snap of the curtains and the groan of a picture on the wall. Then there was a boom as Tom Buchanan shut the rear windows and the caught wind died out about the room, and the curtains and the rugs and the two young women ballooned slowly to the floor.”

Sorry for being late I don’t. I just want you back

The Great Gatsby misses some beats. For a great American novel, Gatsby misses a few beats in its logical flow. Great novel, nevertheless. Have to watch one or two of it's inspired movies.

Snooze fest. So boring

Great read. Loved it

Classic. Great book I can read over and over again

The Great Gatsby. It’s a challenging well-written read. And in my opinion an interesting illustration of shallowness and “all that glitters ain’t gold”

I knew it was a great decision to read this. I read this because family guy did an episode about it

The Below Average Gatsby. Incredibly over rated. If you are hesitant to read this book, you won’t regret not doing so. No wonder Fitzgerald didn’t receive any acclaim for this book while living. Not sure what changed when he died, but we should defer to the original critics.

The Great Gatsby. Very beautiful words if ideologies are ignored. The main character has a certain subtlety to him, which is amusing at times. Overall, very enjoyable and pleasing read.

An Engaging and Enjoyable Read!. In a word, “The Great Gatsby” is fun. It’s hard to put the book down once you start since Fitzgerald strikes a perfect a perfect balance between descriptive worldbuilding and advancing the plot. The novel’s readability is also helped by the fact that his use of language has aged incredibly and reads like something you’d find today in the New Yorker (i.e. no need for that 18th century Webster’s Dictionary here!). If you haven’t read it since high school, I definitely recommend another read. However, be warned, it will be difficult not to mentally picture that Leonardo DiCaprio meme when Jay Gatsby finally makes his appearance.

.. Good book

yes. slightly disappointed because it wasn’t like the episode story but still good

ok. the book wasnt awful the writings good i just cant help but give it three stars because of how much i dislike most of the characters there area few exceptions here like nick isnt awful and i like jordan. might be a favorite for some people and i can see why its a classic but not my cup of tea

The greatest book in English. This book was incredibly good, read it as I worked out and at school, so many motifs and turns I definitely was not expecting highly recommended any highschool student to read and anyone wanting to get into good read.

Excellent. Great word play. Fast read. Loved it.

Haven’t read. This is filled with bots

Bitter plot about the American dream by a racist author. Need I say more?

I loved this book. While I quite often hear mixed reviews about “The Great Gatsby”, I have to say I loved the book myself. It took a few turns I never expected and toward the end of the book I was on the edge of my seat.

Because I don’t want. Job is that I don’t want

It was a beautiful story. I loved the classical story of course. Beautifully well told. But the writing style, as to be expected of the times, was a difficult read. Just be cautious as to not read to fast or to get caught up on a single sentence or word. It’ll make sense as you read on, until the very end.

Worthwhile Read. It serves as an interesting snapshot of the 1920s. Many of the problems presented are still present (just with different groups) today such as class, ethnicity, and race. One thing that remains true is that while wealth may bring comfort, the price may be too high for us to bear. One thing that brings it down a notch for me is the not so subtle antisemitic stereotypes, perhaps very common at the time the book was written. A lot of references are dated so you need to perform a little bit of archaeological research to understand the context (which can be fun).

I wish I could read it for the first time again. How are you gonna drop that on me on a TUESDAY. I remember reading it In highschool and being like psssh whatever, but like OH MY GOD ITS GOOD. The great American novel seriously. If you’ve never read it it’s less than 300 pages. It’s the book that got me into reading PLEASE BRO PLEASE read it. Like this is art. It’s just Bangar line after Bangar line. The last paragraph, the last two pages are just FANTASTIC. The whole book is fantastic

My experience. It’s a good book and I definitely recommend. I definitely learned about respect and learned to not be envious.

Underwhelmed…. I decided to read this book because of it’s major reputation and it’s place in classical literature. However after having finished it, I am enormously underwhelmed with my experience. Perhaps where was some greater metaphor or message I missed in my time reading it, maybe not, I don’t particularly care to go back and find it either way. Beautiful writing, disappointing book.

Good in 2022. Like

Meh. I hate books that use all these prissy confusing words instead of just getting to the point

Beautiful and Sad. Very poignant look at the emptiness of life without the experience of true love and friendship. I hear Bessie Smith singing the old blues classic “Nobody Loves You When You’re Down and Out.”

🙄. Literally so boring

Very good. Breathtakingly astounding

One of my favourite books ever. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Would definitely recommend it to anyone

Breathtakingly beautiful is Fitzgeralds written word. Possibly one of the most poetically written novels I have ever read. Packed with intrigue, Fitzgerald allows the reader to dive into the star mingled void of the Upper class society of East/WestEgg society. Truly splendid. Thank you to whomever made the decision that this novel should be free for all to read. I think Fitzgerald would have liked that idea.

Gatsby. A true classic. I would recommend to everyone.

Great. It was good
