I absolutely adore this collection of Fitzgerald's works. Both novels lived up to expectations, and I was delightfully surprised by the short stories. I purchased this book at Barnes & Noble for $7.98, and frankly, I consider it a steal!

The book I'm reading is a collection which claims to contain the following titles:

1. This Side of Paradise [1920]
2. The Beautiful and Damned [1922]
3. The Great Gatsby [1925]
4. Tender is the Night [1934]
5. Flappers and Philosophers [1920]
6. Tales of the Jazz Age [1922]
7. All the Sad Young Men [1926]
8. Taps at Reveille [1935]
9. The Pat Hobby stories [1941]

Each of the short stories has it's own publication date and place. This is a monstrously long collection. I should get bonus points or somet

3.5 stars. One of my 2017 reading goals was to finish this book — although it's really more like four books in one (two novels, This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned, as well as 19 short stories split across two collections, "Flappers and Philosophers" and 'Tales of the Jazz Age"). I started this collection more than three years ago, but according to the sticky note I left stuck in the books, paused partway through The Beautiful and Damned and never came back...until now. As with an ...more

Fitzgerald's writing - his words - have a certain effect on him. Some of his books and stories, if I stop and say sleep while in the middle of reading, I get visions -- dreams -- of the text, with me as one of the characters and usually an updated ("happening today") version. The first time this happened was with the Great Gatsby, the most recent time it was with The Diamond As Big As the Ritz. I started reading it and then after part 2 went to sleep, finished the story the next day to realize t ...more

This is an excellent book for any Fitzgerald fan. The novels are great and the collected short stories are some of Fitzgerald's more mature works, albeit a bit repetitive at times. A long read, but if you like his writing it's worth it.

Got this as a bargain book on B&N for five bucks. Best five dollars I think I've ever spent. This is a collection of Fitzgerald's work, including This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and the Damned, and over a dozen short stories. If you were forced to read The Great Gatsby or another of his books in high school or college, do yourself a favor and reread some of Fitzgerald's work. I was caught off-guard by the many original and poetic phrases I skimmed over (or didn't recognize as brilliant) ...more

What a joy to read some of Fitzgerald's best short stories. Except for a couple, his short stories earned all of the 5 stars that could be given as a rating. "Mr. Icky" was my least favorite. I found the writing style lacking and the storyline a little trite, but Fitzgerald definitely hit the mark with "the Diamond as Big as the Ritz" , The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons", "The Camel's Back", "Jemina, the Mountain Girl" and several others that I read. Reading Fitzgerald is always time well spe ...more

The stories? Exercises in mediocrity, done for money and published in periodicals like the Saturday Evening Post. On the covers of that magazine were illustrations by Norman Rockwell. These are Norman Rockwell quality stories, but then Fitzgerald never claimed they were literature. I got bored with the stories and haven't read This Side of Paradise, included in this collection, yet. May go back to it at some point.

I do audiobooks -- can't see to physically read a text. So I rely heavily on the quality of the narrator. I understand the choice of this narrator, and I'm sure he gets the tone exactly as it should be, but I simply can't listen to the simpering droll tone he affects in order to convey the tone of the idle rich that this author so clearly disdains.

I have picked it up and given up a dozen times. I simply dn't know if I can finish it.

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
