The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Great Gatsby:

Nick's New York adventure with the lives of the rich and famous.

My favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald quote from the book:

"Life is much more successfully looked at from a single window."

Questions I pondered while reading The Great Gatsby:

Does wealth diminish character?

Is it fair to hold someone accountable for your memory of them?

My review of The Great Gatsby:

The fun of rich people's problems.

I love the decadence of that period.

I would have been a bootlegger. You?
