Review by

Good book. I really liked it when I read it, but as I reflect now (a couple summers later), I think that Fitzgerald gets rather tiring. It's 'On the Road' that has done this to me, particularly a quote on the back mentioning that it was closer to Whitman's American Dream than Fitzgerald's. Fitzgerald is a confused boy living in a make-believe world, whereas Whitman and Kerouac celebrate Life. I prefer that. Today.
