The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald Well.. it was certainly interesting.
I can see why The Great Gatsby has survived time and earned its label as a classic, certainly I can. And it is an enjoyable read, too, albeit lengthy and drawn-out at times. I found the last 30 pages to be either confusing or too brief at all times - whether that was me losing interest or just the way things are, I do not know. Fact is that it robbed the of the star that would've been the fifth, because it is a damn good piece up until the very ending. Which is strange, because that is when it appears to get be the most exciting.
