really liked it

What impresses me most about this novel is that Fitzgerald had it published by the time he was only 23. This is a coming-of-age novel, much of it about Fitgerald's own time at Princeton. The prose is rather fluid, descriptive and poetic, a little too wordy at times. But Fitzgerald was still honing his skills as a writer at this point.
