I can’t complain about The Great Gatsby – it was a well-written novel with plenty of intrigue, and Fitzgerald did a great job of capturing the atmosphere of the time. I grabbed this book from my old employer – we were sending them out to journalists, and there was a spare one. I’m glad I picked it up.

Fitzgerald was a contemporary of Hemingway’s, and there’s something about their writing that seems similar, which is a good thing. Essentially, Fitzgerald is simply a skilled writer with a story to tell, and whilst there are many layers to it, at its most basic level, this is just a good story with some memorable characters, like Daisy Buchanan and the titular character, Jay Gatsby.

Whether he’s actually great or not will remain to be seen – you should read it and find out, ’cause it’s a classic.
