Summary

This is a BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, starring Bryan Dick as Nick and Andrew Scott as Jay Gatsby. The greatest book on the fallibility of the American dream, The Great Gatsby, a portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, is by far the most popular classic in modern American fiction.

Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's - and his country's - most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. Gatsby is the man who has everything ... but one thing will always be out of his reach.

A gripping tale of Love, Aristocracy and Identity

Would you consider the audio edition of The Great Gatsby (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

I don't honestly know because I haven't read the entire unabridged or printed version.

What does Bryan Dick and Andrew Scott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

There are far more narrators than those two. This book features an entire cast of readers that adapt to give impressive personalities to the characters in the story. Of course this is also on the account of the writing, but the actors are by no means bad at portraying the characters.
