it was ok
Read in July, 2008

I didn't read this until I was in my thirties, and I found it pretty disappointing. I am not a fan of the flowery language. "It's like jazz!" Okay, well, I'm not a big fan of jazz, either. Fitzgerald never met an adjective or adverb he didn't like. It was like he was dancing around the point of every paragraph. I prefer more direct writing.
