“As nearly perfect as such a work could be . . . The glorious spirit of abounding youth glows throughout this fascinating tale. Amory, the romantic egotist, is essentially American.” –The New York Times

“[A] bravura display of literary promise . . . Fitzgerald’s prose is capable of soaring like a violin, and of moving his readers with understated husky notes as well as with notes of piercing purity . . . Fitzgerald knew that glamour was bound to fail, that there is an ineradicable human instinct for it which is utterly mistaken.” –from the Introduction by Craig Raine

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Education of a Personage 2. Juli 2000
Von oh_pete
Run or click, but don't walk to grab yourself a copy of THIS SIDE OF PARADISE. F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel (published when he was twenty-three) is so glitteringly brilliant you might--I say MIGHT--just like it more than THE GREAT GATSBY. By the Gatsby masterpiece Fitzgerald was cutting back deliberately on his flourishing prose--read THIS SIDE OF PARADISE to see him let it all hang out.
Fitzgerald's protagonist Amory Blaine inherits from his mother exquisite manners, a European sensibility, and a dangerous superiority complex. It is to Amory's credit then, that throughout his prep school and Princeton years he regains the respect his attitude loses for him through talent and hard work. His stunning good looks (a point repeatedly established) position Amory well to lose his innocence as a variety of beautiful girls fall for him throughout his adolescence. Looking back nostalgically later on, Amory is honest enough with himself to realize that he doesn't really want to "repeat" his innocence, but merely "want[s] the pleasure of losing it again."
When I first read this book almost four years ago I shook my head after a few pages and said, "there's no accounting for genius." Much later I read E. M. Forster's ASPECTS OF THE NOVEL where he points out what I said as characteristic of the "pseudo-scholar." Yikes! The truth is that there is accounting for Fitzgerald's genius: it lies in his depth of insight, sharpness of wit and overall "will to bigness," as his narrator puts it for Amory. GATSBY is certainly the book that crowned Fitzgerald an immortal, but THIS SIDE OF PARADISE is a must-read for those who want to know what first made him a star.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unimpressed 1. Juli 2000
Von Jane Pek
I found this a trifle indulgent, not very economically-written. Chunks of it consist of two people sitting down and discoursing philosophy, basically the author putting forth his views directly through his mouthpieces. In one chapter towards the end, Amory Blaine gets into a car with two men - this scene appears to serve no other purpose besides letting him expound on communism to them. Also, this does not have much of a plot, which is something I personally prefer; admittedly, this was a literary experiment and not a linear novel. In general, I'm not saying this is bad; only that it did not interest me much.
I would read this, though, for Fitzgerald's depiction of Princeton life - the breakfast clubs, midnight jaunts, arrogant students, the popularity race. Secondly, for his philosophical insights, which made me think (or try to). Then there are Blaine's romances with various girls, which is the liveliest portion of the book and gives us an idea of high society then. Lastly, for Amory Blaine himself - a memorable, striking character of self-absorption and constant self-analysis.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just didn't appeal to me. 23. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I don't know why. I liked The Great Gatsby. I love Fitzgerald's short stories. But I just couldn't get into this book. It took me months to make it halfway through because I'd put it down and read a few other books before picking it back up. When I realized I was looking at finishing the book as a chore instead of a leisure activity, I moved on completely. I'll just have to live with not knowing what happened in Amory's life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A deep dive into a recognisable world 6. Mai 2000
I give this book 5 stars for several reasons: Fitzgerald puts his characters into words on a level I never experienced with any other author: His descriptions of thoughts, behavior and feelings of the characters are very accurate and colorfull. To this, Fitzgerald adds deep psychological insights. No shallow chatter about puberty and well-known theories, but a real , deep dive with a skilfull instructor is offered to those who read carefully. To me, Fitzgerald was like an exquisite but huge strawberry pie: Every bite is delightfull, but to enjoy to the fullest, you may not eat too much at once. I read a few pages a week, so I could let my thoughts linger on these for a while. As far as I'm concerned, this is the best way to read 'This side of paradise.' As if this isn't enough, Fitzgerald puts quite an amount of magic into his work: the meeting with a girl on a dark and stormy night in the fields, the devil staring at our main character, the mysterious relationship with a religious man, and so on and on. In short: Reading this Fitzgerald was a tiring but rewarding experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr schöne amerikanische Novelle! +++ 9. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Dies ist ein weniger bekanntes Buch von F. Scott Fitzgerald, welches aber seinen großen Meisterwerken an Qualität in nichts nachsteht. Dieses Buch erzählt die Geschichte des „Amory Blaine" und die Entdeckung der Werte. Er kommt aus einem anfangs reichen, später dann ärmeren Hintergrund, bekommt aber eine Top-Ausbildung und Erziehung, erst in Europa dann in Princeton. Er entdeckt die Liebe, entdeckt die Freundschaft und entdeckt das Leben. Es ist spannend, ihn auf seinen Spuren zu verfolgen, vor allem wenn die Ereignisse und Erlebnisse so schön wie von F. Scott Fitzgerald beschrieben werden. Es ist ein tolles Buch, ein sehr schönes Buch, vor allem wenn man es in Englisch liest. Sehr zu empfehlen. (Dies ist eine an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

2.0 von 5 Sternen almost a waste of time
This novel is beautifully written, as are most of Fitzgerald's works, but the story line is disjointed and the characters have a disturbingly narrow, WASPish outlook. Lesen Sie weiter...

Many may argue that the title of this review is nonsensical-I agree. It was a ruse. I found this book to be, most simply, erudite. Lesen Sie weiter...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nice, yes; remarkable, not in the least.
Being a 14-year-old, I thought that I would've probably liked this book - the main character being a young man who's really not sure of anything, as myself. Lesen Sie weiter...
