The last time I read this book was when I was 19 years old. I couldn't understand much about it. 36 years later, I read it again. Now it all made sense. I can identify with Gatsby and feel his anguish, hopes, fears and joy. Life is not about living a dream but making a dream come true and when that dream is fulfilled, you realised it is actually a nightmare. It's best to be pragmatic and lead a simple life, even if you're filthy rich.
Я смотрела конечно фильм, но буду читать чтоб , больше развивать англ)
At great times, Gatsby got everyone, but when he needed it the most, the only person who stayed was the person who loathed him right from the start. Life does not give us much of genuine people, I mean those who would stay until the edge. Well, Gatsby had his share of misdoings but that does not make him deserve what happened. He has loved and lost.
Wonderful! Very simple plot, but final is heartbreaking
Read twice, fully understood only years later
There is absolutely nothing romantic about the story
Makes you understand the real sight of people.
Good read sad ending.
The book shows the experience of being in love, in other means, how awfully difficult, messy and complicated it is. But in the end - if you love, you just do. Not being able with the one you love may be crushing.. Fitzgerald's gentle outlook and empathic words show the tragedy of the characters. Worthwhile.
The hypocrisy and self centered society
It was kind of enjoyable to read this book.
If you do not like this amazing book you are a steaming pile of old moldy spaghetti. I do not care what you say, this book is amazing you uncultured burnt spud and also if Tom's brains were dynamite he wouldn't have enough to blow his nose.
Ah, the Jazz age!
please indonesian languages?
It was an okay book, but not as gripping as others. I didn't enjoy it much, as I had already seen the film
Amazing story. Haunting & touching
