Believe it or not, I have never read this before now. In high school I always read summary notes for my required reading. I just started to make my way through the classics about two years ago and hadn't got to this one yet. I moved it up to the top of my list though when I found out Leonardo DiCaprio was going to be playing Gatsby in the movie!

Sadly old sport, I wasn't that impressed with the book. I thought it was well written and interesting, but nothing to burn my bra over. I imagined Leo as the narrator and as Gatsby and I think this really improved my reading experience. Haha!

I think the movie will actually be better than the book this time.
