Review by ElaineRuss
This is one of my all time favourite novels and thanks to a friend, I had a glorious new edition for Christmas.<br/><br/>I've read this novel countless times and it really is a masterpiece. It's been described as 'the perfect novel' and while that is definitely debatable, it remains a piece of fiction to be admired.<br/><br/>Fitzgerald's writing is simplistic yet incredibly evocative. Every word in this, very brief, novel has been chosen to develop the story as succinctly as possible, yet it remains a beautiful and damning portrait of the American dream during the decadence of the 1920s. <br/><br/>A masterpiece of storytelling, The Great Gatsby is not to be missed.
