あらすじ・解説

"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.

Author mispronounce could several words

Those few words make me wonder—What? Metrpoleee? It’s metropole —and several leaving g out a minor syllable or —The accent on the wrong syllable.For those who notice, it’s distracting

The Better Narration

I purchased this version after listening to another with an inferior narrator. This reader knew how to pronounce French and did the voices better.

Many errors in this reading

This narrator is very talented at varying voices for different characters. He’s easy to follow and understand. BUT he mispronounced many words and even skipped phrases at times. Sometimes what he misread completely changed the meaning. It’s a shame, because he has the potential to be really outstanding.

This??? This is the “Great Gatsby”?!?

I’m 34 years old and never took the time to read this book during my youth. I know it’s a classic. I know it is Considered one of the great books of the 20th century. But my god have I read so much better!!. A great book should leave you a different person from the one that was before you read the book. It should enlighten a transcendent feeling, thought or emotion deep within your being! This book only made me long for it to be over.

Symbols and caricature

Two decades after first reading this supposed pinnacle of American literature, I thought it was time to give the book another try. After all, what do we really know in high school?

Well, I came away just as underwhelmed this time around. The book is one to be analyzed: it's overtly full of symbols and repeated themes, a possibly (but mostly uninteresting) unreliable narrator, and a clear critique of society. But, to my eye, the empty characters undermine the critique. If the characters don't feel human, relatable, real to you - and to me they don't - then the book reads like an unjustified assertion about human nature and America expressed through symbols.

If you want to dislike and distrust America, and enjoy tracking the meanings of colors or eyes repeatedly referenced throughout, then you will surely find this to be a wonderful book. But if you want a book that makes its point with genuine subtlety, that builds empathy with its characters (however flawed), that makes you laugh or tear up or otherwise wonder how an author breathed life into words, you may want to look elsewhere.

skipped words and passages

I read along as I listened to the audio book and there were several occasions where the narrator missed or skipped words or passages. While I appreciate Fitzgerald's writing style, I didn't care for the story very much.

Read it For Literature.

Listened to it for literature. Good story composition, really unpleasant/disturbing content- at least for me. Well read, I appreciate the energy and variance of voice put into this book.

Good story, background noises in the recording

There are some really odd background noises in this recording. It sounds like children playing. The narrator doesn't put in much effort to perform different voice for different characters, so can be confusing at time.

Beautiful story. Mediocre reading. Background noises intruding

The reading is ok - not really capturing the utter beauty of this book, and it has some odd dialogue renditions. But the strangest thing (I thought I was hallucinating at first, but rewound to check the second time it occurred) is noise of children seeping in. A broom cupboard lockdown project? Which is admirable in a way and good luck to them. I did only pay 78 pence, so I can’t complain too much.

If you want just to get through the text for an exam this could work. But if you want an exceptional rendition, true to the quality of the writing, try the Jake Gyllenhaal reading, which I bought instead.
