When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby in the early 1920s, the American Dream was already on the skids. Originally based on the idea that the pursuit of happiness involves not only material success, but moral and spiritual growth, the dream had, by Fitzgerald's time, become increasingly focused on money and pleasure - a phenomenon with which the high-living writer was all too familiar.

The classic story!
The entire demeanor characters aren't distinguishable enough and the pace of speech is clumsy and gapped.
Great story but the Shatner-esque speech of the reader takes me out of the story
