The Great Gatsby Book Review

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

            The Great Gatsby By F. Scott Fitzgerald is a book full of adventure and suspense with many different type of characters. There are characters that come from wealth and others that don’t, others that are mean or kind. The setting is in a 1925 jazz age in New York City and Long island. I would definitely recommend this book to others because it is about a man named Gatsby, who is head over heels in love with Daisy, but we find out in the novel, she never was. This may happen to some men now too, and the idea of forgetting about the girl is not an option for them or Gatsby. He had a past with Daisy many years ago, and he thought he can bring back the past and the love she had for him. I personally loved this book because it involved two of my favorite places, that I used to live in, Queens, and now I live in Long Island.  The way they describe the places they go to to party, gamble or do business, all in New York, is well described, that it feels that you are there.    
            The Great Gatsby By F. Scott Fitzgerald met my expectation because it was not just a fictional book of made up places, they are actual places in which I have been to or seen. This book shows the full range of social classes, in which one of the main characters, Daisy, had to choose which she wanted by deciding which man to stay with. All the woman cared about was pride, money and how they were seen. The romance in this novel and the decisions made is much more complicated than it should be, which makes the suspense even better. This book is addictive in reading how their lives roll out to be, and towards the end of the book you realize no one is happy about their life.  Jennifer P. Teen Reviewer
