One Of The Classics

About to read this in my English class, can’t wait! I’ve heard nothing but good things. Never seen the movie, so I’ll have no prerequisites going in! (:
A bit overrated, I think.
I haven't read many "American classics" so this might be affecting my opinion here, but I have read much better and older books that cover the same topics 'The Great Gatsby' does whilst doing a better job at arresting my attention.
I guess if you are entirely ignorant to the era in which this novel takes place it may be an enlightening read, but if you are already somewhat familiar beforehand (like myself) then this book has little to offer.
'The Great Gatsby' does NOT do a notable job of showing the dichotomy between the upper and lower class of this period; it only offers a narrow insight into the lives of some well-to-do citizens (and lets be honest; spoiled, rich people act the same regardless of the decade, or century).
The nouveau riche gentleman that this book focuses on is interesting—though at times made boring by the narrator's own fickle disinterest.
To describe this title in one word, I choose the word staid.
3 Stars. I don't normally do reviews but I was planning to spend my apple credit on a purchase today, only to be told I had insufficient funds. It was then that I was reminded of this purchase—which I had already completely forgotten about within 3 days apparently. I wish I could have my ten dollars back.
Greatest Book I have ever read. Pure frickin greatness

The Great Gatsby
I love the language used by F. Scott Fitzgerald to describe anything and everything. Great read, the characters must be looked at with unjudgemental eyes.
Greatest character and symbolism work ever
The Truth About James Gatz
By Angela Tampol
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... and one fine morning—
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." - Nick Carraway (Narrator of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby")
An amazing story about money, power, obsession, and tragedy. Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby, or James Gatz, teaches us about the craziness in love and light—that having hope is something worth dying for.
Forced to read

School major grade hate the book but it's not all bad
You can almost smell, hear and feel the narrator's dwellings. My feelings were all over the place
