A classic, readable story juxtaposing the upper class with the lower. Fitzgerald shows how the rich act from the perspective of a non-wealthy character. I thought he illustrated pretty well the depth of Gatsby - even though he was a bit envied, he was still a fellow human. Recommended to classic fiction lovers as a light, easy read.

This novel was simply amazing. The ease of reading disguises the deep and meaningful questions sparked by Gatsby's life and the enigmatic title. Few books are truly life changing, but I would put The Great Gatsby on that list. Fitzgerald really highlighted how truly lonely one can be in a crowd, and the ethics of love of friendship as well as the social change of the 1920's in all aspects. The Great Gatsby was a book that I was forced to read for school and became one of my favorite novels, and upon each re-reading I learn another lesson or see a different aspect of this multifaceted, interesting, and well written work.

Fitzgerald is an excellent writer and this novel, which may seem simple in the beginning, is anything but formulaic. While I did not find this text to be one of the best of all-time, I highly recommend it to any reader looking to explore concepts of love, mortality, and morality. Flowing prose and serene descriptions add to Fitzgerald's well-crafted storyline.

I highly reommend this novel.

An absolute American classic and a must read. One of the best lines in the book is when someone notes, "The rich are different"; and indeed Fitzgerald captures this beautifully in his depiction of Gatsby and other characters, all set against the Jazz Age.
