From everyone that I have spoken too, this book is like Marmite; you either love it or you hate it. Unfortunately I seem to side with the ‘hate it’ side of the argument.
‘The Great Gatsby’ tells the story of Nick Carraway and his extravagant world on Long Island in the 1920s. However, the glittering lifestyle is not all that it seems.
Admittedly, I never finished the book. It is practically unheard of for me to take such a dislike to a book that I cannot face finishing it, especially a book of only 100 pages!!! However, I have vowed to finish it, so in three books time I might have changed my mind on this one, but for now, it is definitely my least favourite book.
I would love to hear other opinions on this one, particularly those of you who love it – I would like to know why.
