really liked it
Read in October, 2011

I read this book in high school and remembered loving it. I was actually surprised as I re read the book to find that I did not enjoy the story or the characters all that much. It all seemed so shallow and fake. Written by a different author I might have rated this book 2 or 3 stars...but this is Fitzgerald. I remember my high school english teacher telling us that reading Fitzgerald is reading poetry in the shape of a novel. His writing is amazing. Amazing!!! I could not put the book down, wanted to just get lost in the words all day. A tragic and pointless story written so beautifully I could read it again and again.
