5.0 von 5 Sternen A Bittersweet Love Story That Gets Sweeter With Time, 29. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Great Gatsby (Taschenbuch)
I have read this book every summer since I first read it as part of a high school reading list. It is one of my favorite books in that it takes the reader back to a very romantic, colorful time in history. It profiles the life of a tragic, wreckless dreamer who re-invents himself to capture the heart of a his first love.
I think what brings me back to this book time and time again is the poetic quality of the writing. Each reading brings seems to bring out new ideas and facets to this story. It is beautifully written. One thing worth noticing is the use of colors that Fitzgerald employs throughout the story. The book also captures a slice of life in the 1920s - a period of time which often seems akin to the present in its massive explosion of wealth.
I think the fact that the story takes place in the summer also ads to my enjoyment of this book. When I sit on the beach reading it,I can picture myself on the north shore of Long Island at one of Gatsby's parties, with jazz music in the air, and his beautiful house ablaze with a festive glow....
