Summary

Considered one of the all-time great American works of fiction, Fitzgerald’s glorious yet ultimately tragic social satire on the Jazz Age encapsulates the exuberance, energy and decadence of an era. After the Great War, the mysterious Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, pursues wealth, riches and the lady he lost to another man with stoic determination. He buys a mansion across from her house and throws lavish parties to entice her. When Gatsby finally does reunite with Daisy Buchanan, tragic events are set in motion. Told through the eyes of his detached and omnipresent neighbour and friend, Nick Carraway, Fitzgerald’s succinct and powerful prose hints at the destruction and tragedy that awaits.

The best version of The Great Gatsby

I was going to buy a different audiobook of The Great Gatsby from a friend's recommendation but this one came out much more recently and I wanted to give it a try. Well worth it - in my opinion this version of Nick is much more true to his character and there are very few mistakes, if any!

flawless

Flawlessly narratted - A passionate and moving story that has withstood the test of time - a tragedy - I listened to it in a single session - spellbound from beginning to end.

Good narrator, underwhelming plot

Narrator was pretty good, but honestly I didn't really find the plot all that intriguing.
