Summary

This short story remains an enigma, as F. Scott Fitzgerald once again takes on the aristocracy. The heroine, Ardita, beautiful, rich, and spoiled rotten lounges on her uncle's yacht until she is carried away by an offshore pirate, Curtis Carlyle. Carlyle tells her of his upbringing as poor white trash in a Tennessee town, and his rise to become a successful musician - but one who has never been able to dance with the aristocracy. Until that is, the beautiful, spoiled-rotten Ardita falls in love with him, as much as she is capable of falling in love with anyone other than herself, on the deserted tropical island.

But is this just a dream or fantasy in Ardita's mind? You be the judge, as Fitzgerald's last line, "kissed him softly in the illustration", reveals that this is either a story or Ardita’s dream.

Narrator destroyed it

Would you try another book from F. Scott Fitzgerald and/or Mike Vendetti?

Yes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Vendetti’s performances?

Absolutely NOT.

Any additional comments?

This narrator ruined a very good story. His performance was so bad I don't know how it made it to audiobook. Very disappointing.
