I found this book to be dreary and depressing. First of all, the lifestyle of sloth and alcohol is so wasteful in my opinion. Also, I really did not like the characters of Gloria and Anthony. To me, they were not like other strong characters with tragic flaws. I need to read The Great Gatsby again as this book as left me wanting for better Fitzgerald.
