Monday Madness: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Monday Madness is a new bookish meme hosted by Booklover's Teaparty and Bookfever.
You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad.
Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it?
THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.
I have actually read The Great Gatsby, but I have decided to purchase a bunch of different covers of it and this one is my latest obsession and the one I want the most.
