Young, handsome and fabulously rich, Jay Gatsby is the bright star of the Jazz Age, but as writer Nick Carraway is drawn into the decadent orbit of his Long Island mansion, where the party never seems to end, he finds himself faced by the mystery of Gatsby’s origins and desires. Beneath the shimmering surface of his life, Gatsby is hiding a secret: a silent longing that can never be fulfilled. And soon, this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.
This is an amazing book but very overrated in my opinion. Because it yes it is good but not as good as people on the internet claim it to be.
This book is in a way a tragic book about a love story without an happy ending which is most perfect love story which could possible exist.
The love story in this book is complete flawless which really made this book so much better for me personally.
This book is one of these unique books which you can read several times, never get bored of it but also with each time you read it you notice something new. Which really shows in my opinion how good this book is.
The plot here is amazing here but I still had every once and a while hard time with fully connecting with the story. It might have something to do with a lot of action happening in a very short time. The plot however was very unique because I never come across a plot which was never slightly similar to this one yet of course.
The writing style here was very old timey but it fitted very well with the plot and how the plot was presented to us. The writing style really felt like we were in the story like a third person in the round rather than reading about it.
The characters here were very good, they felt like real people who lived back in the day and I really liked every character presented in this book. Jay Gatsby felt like the classic best friend neighbour who later turns out to be a drug dealer or mob leader. But hey that’s what it made me like this book so much.
After reading this book Jay Gatsby became one of my top 10 favourite fictional characters because there is something mysterious to him but also something of a hopeless romantic in a way.
I Give This Book 5 / 5
