Who has read “The Great Gatsby”
Very good book.
The place I’m staying at has books you can take home and I found it so i put it in my room was gonna start it today but was wondering if it caught people’s attention and if it was hard to put down for some people.
But then again i got other good books and so do they that I can start today lol
I’ve read it three times. Excellent book.
How long did it take you to read it?
A couple of evenings
I really didn’t enjoy the book. Then I watched the movie. . . . . Excellent!
Hmmm they also have books by Mary Higgins Clark and Danielle Steel too lol along with Clive Clussler lol
I thought it was a pretty obnoxious book…but it’s one that you’re “supposed” to read.
“supposed?” Why is that lol
I guess because it’s viewed as a classic. It does raise a lot of ethical and moral issues.
It’s required reading in a lot of high schools. I faked my way through and read chapter summaries my sophomore year of high school. About two years ago I finally read it all the way through and was really not impressed. It’s considered a classic
Is Dan Brown’ s origin worth the pri e? I bought it today but has some misgivings.
It is not my favorite of his writing, but it is an engrossing story. It is about artificial intelligence.
@Lela which one is your favorite?I have read o only Davinci code.thank you.
I liked both Digital Fortress and Deception Point. Digital Fortress is about NSA and a code breaking super computer and Deception Point is about NASA discovering a meteorite with fossils.
I’ve been wanting to try Nora Roberts too but they don’t have any books here by her that I’ve seen and I can’t spend any money on books.
Brooke, Mary Higgins Clarks’s books are mysteries and are entertaining. I enjoy her. Danielle Steele is a little too “cheesy” for me Lots of drama, etc. The Great Gatsby is a “classic” due to its portrayal of the times and who Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald were. it is supposed to make you think.
I did! It was a great read. Made me sad
It qualifies as literature and not just an entertaining read. The books with real depth are not necessarily an easy read, so I guess it depends on what you’re looking for. If you have to watch the movie to get into it, do that, but then go back and read the actual book. It will stay with you the rest of your life.
Great Gatsby is one of those you either like it or hate it…I enjoyed it a lot my daughter hates it and on some recent list it was the #1 classic book that should be read ..My daughter groaned….
one of my favorite books!
I had to read it in 11th grade for English. I remember thinking it was interesting but I liked to kill a mockingbird better.
I have to kill a mockingbird but I left it at home like a dummy lol
Hate when that happens!
Yeaah I didn’t bring too many with me but I wish I would have brought some of my classics at least haha
At least three times, love it, must read again
i tried…. i can’t finish… got distracted by other books.?
I have that issue sometimes ?
Quick read, but I really enjoyed it.
It seems like it’s a short book lol
I liked it. I hate Daisy Buchanan.
She’s a central character and drives the plot in many ways.
read it back in high school
My fave book 🙂
I read it about 3 years ago and to be honest didn’t really enjoy it very much, as it is considered one of those books that you really should read I was disappointed! Then I went to see the film and have to say it changed the whole book for me! I understood more of what it was trying to say. ?
read it not so long ago, but did not like it. It is overstated
One of my favorites
Read it in my distant youth and quite enjoyed it.
I had to read it for school, so I didn’t enjoy it. I just didn’t care for the characters or the writing style. And plus it was for school so it was difficult to enjoy it. Although I loved the Odyssey, Much Ado About Nothing and the Scarlett Pimpernel. But I just didn’t care for the Great Gatsby. That and To Kill A Mockingbird.
LOVED it! (It’s a bit on the depressing side, but FANTASTIC!❤️)
Me! Hated it in school…hated being told to say what I thought the green light/billboard/etc. meant, and then told that my interpretation of it was wrong…and then I decided to reread it before watching both movie adaptations, and I loved it.
The only book I like better is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Have taught Great Gatsby for A-Level as well. Great book.
I read it a LONG time ago. I think the late seventies. I did not like it. Maybe I’d feel differently now.
Have read and reread it throughout my life and loved it.
an amazing book reflecting the american dream and the roaring twenties
Did. Many regrets. Time I could have spent reading something I enjoyed.
I read it for school. A lot of books I’ve read during that time I don’t think I’d sadly ever read again.
Thought it was greatly overrated.
I started reading it and stopped. I wasn’t feeling it.
A long time ago. Really liked it back then
I read it years ago. I loved it.
I was so disappointed. Especially since it is considered such a wonderful classic.
Me.. I was disappointed also..
I did in high school
It was okay, not sure what the fuss is about.
Me its been awhile though
At least twice!
LOVED it! <3
I just bought that yesterday 🙂
Read it several times. As a teen, it didn’t work. In my middle age, I understood the narrative much better. As an elderly gent, I finally get it and love it. A must read :):):)
Tried to read it a couple of times. I wanted to like itjust couldn’t get into it
My theory of the timing of books says that there is a right time in your life for most books, and if you try to force it, it usually doesn’t work out well. Dip into it, see how it goes; if it doesn’t, put it aside for another day.
Excatly, I tend to reread books I read in school and enjoy them when I am not forced to overanalyze and take 6 weeks to read a book that takes a day to resd
Read it twice. Like it a lot.
Me! Great book, it is very easy to read, and very fast. ?
I had to read it for school
Read it in high school and read it at least once a year one of my favorite stories I love it
One of my favourites from high school
Twice so far
My absolute favorite book from university. Read it 9 times. Reading it was awesome. Studying it was even better ! Couldn’t recommend it enough !!!
Read it did not like it.
Loathe this book
In school didn’t like it
I read it and didn’t really enjoy it. I have a friend who reads it all the time though
currently reading in English class. Nick is just third wheeling lol. I wish we had more time to read it, but because of teacher walk outs, we’ve had to do some skimming to keep on schedule.
I have read it. The last line is perfection.
I read it and didn’t care for it…
I have. And I ended up liking it a lot.
Me. Like it but hate what Daisy did in the end.
Daisy never deserved Jay’s devotion.
Haven’t most people read it? It’s a classic. I had to read it in school but even before it was assigned I read it.
I started it, didn’t get very far and gave up ?
I started it but left it half-read because I was bored. Maybe it was due to lack of concentration, I’ll give it another try.
I did and loved it
Well worth the read!
Read it in high school, I kind of enjoyed it.
