Finally got around to reading this classic. So interesting with lots of information onhow cultures affect out actions. Really enjoyed it.

I cannot exaggerate how beautifully this book is written. I am a picky reader and often favor style over substance but Fitzgerald is a master of weaving a great story with exquisite style. That said, it is not overdone -- Fitzgerald is not trying to impress but rather to enchant. And he does a damned good job at that. Overall, a highly recommended book!
