If you are not familiar with "The Great Gatsby" you will probably be confused by this book.

The story is about a young woman who was viciously assaulted a few years earlier. She ends up working in a homeless shelter where she meets an old man with a portfolio of photographs, including some which suggest that F. Scott Fitzgerald's characters Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan were real people. She is on a hunt to discover the true identify of this homeless man and why he has photos of Daisy Buchanan and the rest of her crowd.

The narration is very good but the story just didn't hold my interest.

There is a "surprise" ending that probably won't be much of a shocker.

At first I wasn't sure whether or not I liked this book. After a few days of reflection, I've decided I don't like it very much. This particular plot twist has just worn out its welcome for me. Over all, I don't regret the time spent listening to this audio cd (it made my Atlanta commute more tolerable), but I don't recommend it either.
