This Side of Paradise is the debut novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Published in 1920, and taking its title from a line of the Rupert Brooke poem Tiare Tahiti, the book examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Its protagonist, Amory Blaine, is a wealthy and attractive Princeton University student who dabbles in literature and has a series of romances that eventually lead to his disillusionment. In his later novels, Fitzgerald would further develop the book's theme of love warped by greed and status-seeking. (Summary from wikipedia)

The variety of different narrators sometimes helps. The story weakens in the second half.

It’s Fitzgerald!! If you like to travel back in time when English was still spoken properly, life was thought about deeply, you must read Fitzgerald. He was a brilliant tortured soul, it comes out in all his characters.

The narration made the book so boring and dull.
