Vrcholné dílo z dob největšího flámu v dějinách USA, který Francis Scott Fitzgerald označil za „jazzový věk“ a sám do něj vydatně přispěl mnoha soukromými improvizacemi a pocity „ztracené generace“, přináší milostný příběh z lepší společnosti. Selfmademan Jay Gatz řečený Velký Gatsby i krasavice Daisy Buchananová však v éře prohibice do těchto sfér pronikli každý po svém a...more

I’m not so sure it’s fair to review a book that was still in progress when its author died unexpectedly. One could certainly provide a multitude of arguments as to what Fitzgerald intended or would have added or changed, and some of his notes support these possibilities. With this in mind, my overall enjoyment factor was not very great.

1930′s Hollywood is the setting of Fitzgerald’s biting expose of the realities of the brutal business of making movies. Reportedly based on actual famed producers...more

Fitzgerald's fictitious tale pulled from the life of Irving Thalberg sure does flesh out Thalberg's manner and ways around a studio. I read this at the same time reading Roland Flamini's 'Thalberg' about Irving's life. Reading Fitzgerald was like reading Flamini as both illustrated the legendary producer's life. Fitzgerald follows Thalberg closest with the studio scenes in the book. Otherwise Thalberg's manner is well drawn out, though the personal circumstances noted in 'The Last Tycoon' are pu...more

This is one of those classics for which the status is always being challenged. Given that, I was impressed with Fitzgerald's writing and wit. I also was impressed with how far away that time seems--how much has happened and changed--and yet how much America is still haunted by a similar, strange culture of the rich.

I read a different version which does not appear on this website. It was a standalone version, though it was in a set with the The Great Gatsby. It includes the notes from Fitzgerald's manuscripts.

Když jsem byl mladej, věci à la Gatsby jsem doslovně žral. Dneska mi vyhovuje víc Magnát. Ale F. S. psát umí, o tom žádná, rozhodně doporučuju.
Unfinished but the bits already written were good.
Not particularly appealing characters but similar to Gatsby in that aspect.

Scott Fitzgerald ...: The Last Tycoon 1 1 Jun 07, 2014 04:38PM  
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American writer of novels and short stories, whose works have been seen as evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he himself allegedly coined. He is regarded as one of the greatest twentieth century writers. Fitzgerald was of the self-styled "Lost Generation," Americans born in the 1890s who came of age during World War I. He finished four novels, left a fifth unfini...more
