Summary:

The Great Gatsby: An Exquisitely Crafted 1920s American Tale of Life-Long Obsessions & Ceaseless Devotions

“So, we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

On the prosperous Long Island shores sit the grand affluence of West Egg and East Egg — places where a sinister Gatsby’s mansion, with his mysterious mounds of gold and gin-filled parties, takes residence. Nobody knows who he really is. Or where he came from. No one even knows why he is so sickeningly rich.

And, yet Daisy Buchanan feels like she knows him. She just might.

Critically acclaimed for its pomp and fanfare, of love gone wrong, of dying alone amid insatiable sycophant crowds, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald remains among the modern literary world’s best novels.

In this delightfully titillating audiobook, you will:

• Explore one of the greatest novels ever written

• Sink your teeth into the drama and perversion that permeate the world of the rich

• Walk into an incorruptible dream filled with ill intentions

• And so much more!

As intellectual icon Gertrude Stein once said of F. Scott Fitzgerald, he “will be read when many of his well-known contemporaries are forgotten.”

Genres:

  • Parsha R.

    I read this novel, I imagine like many people, my sophomore year of high school. I remember enjoying it then, mostly the length, but also the story of these crazy people living it up on Long Island.

  • Gambler J.

    Great writing that mostly is invisible, like background music, swelling occasionally to the point where it's noticed as a pleasant surprise. F. Scott is a master at this, with a constant bed of unusual, rich phrasing and images like no one else's.

  • Renaissance R.

    I came away pleasantly surprised as the book was entertaining, very well written and engrossing throughout. Don't worry about what the book is about or what you're supposed to think , just download the book and enjoy. Probably takes most people 3-5 hours, so it isn't too long.

  • Dr A.

    This is the version of the American classic that i recommend, either in hardcover or paperback. Reportedly, the artwork was commissioned before the novel was published, and Fitzgerald was so impressed that he wrote the cover into the story. This classic tale of rags to riches still entertains and informs, although it was written 90 years ago, in 1925.

  • XAVIER S.

    When I first read this book, I wasn't the least bit sympathetic toward Daisy. Now, almost thirty years later, I do have some sympathy, but it is limited. When I first read this book, I didn't even really think about the child, much like Gatsby doesn't. Now, when I have a child, I kept wondering what happened to her. And that, I think, is the genius of this book and Fitzgerald's writing.

  • Toney L.

    The Great Gatsby IS about the Jazz Age. There is strong symbolism in this book -- the green light. And there is quite a bit of foreshadowing (and foreboding) in this book -- "the all-seeing eyes". But there is also layer upon layer of wonderful in this book.

  • Phillip L.

    The Great Gatsby, by Scott Fitzgerald is a book that will forever remain part of who you are. This book is not about glamour, or riches — it's about a soul in pain, about a goal unmet, about dreams and love that is wrongly directed. It's about being human. About understanding and accepting (unlike Gatsby) what is within and what is beyond our control. The beautiful and terrible illusions of the human mind. Read it!

  • Roseline R.

    I read this novel, I imagine like many people, my sophomore year of high school. I remember enjoying it then, mostly the length, but also the story of these crazy people living it up on Long Island.

  • Ethan L.

    I only encountered “The Great Gatsby” as an Abridged Paperback Edition that was part of a prior English Class that my wife was taking in Brasilia. I enjoyed the book but I resolved to read the Full Version in the future.

  • Elizabeth 2.

    This is one of my favorite novels. I've both read and taught it in my college lit courses a number of times.
