This is the definitive, textually accurate edition of a classic of twentieth-century literature, The Great Gatsby. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan has been acclaimed by generations of readers. But the first edition contained a number of errors resulting from Fitzgerald's extensive revisions and a rushed production schedule. Subsequent printings introduced further departures from the author's words. This edition, based on the Cambridge critical text, restores all the language of Fitzgerald's masterpiece. Drawing on the manuscript and surviving proofs of the novel, along with Fitzgerald's later revisions and corrections, this is the authorized text -- The Great Gatsby as Fitzgerald intended it.

4.5 A quite sad story.

3.0 The Great Gatsby
This is an odd one. The writing is enchanting, and I don't mind Nick, but the other characters are very nasty. Gatsby himself is depressing. He didn't ask the girl who he thought he loved to marry her while he had her, and when she got tired of waiting for him, he was unwilling to give up his drea...

3.0 The Great Gatsby
If someone asked me why I liked it I wouldn't know what to say. Maybe it's a combination of good writing, unpleasant characters, mystery and New York in the 20s.

5.0 "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Life has begun again as it got crisp in the fall (eventually) and I decided it was time to revisit Fitzgerald's masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, prompted by his 120th birthday and an event celebrating the occasion at the Free Library of Philadelphia. I admit I sit comfortably in the choir who sing t...
