The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald Bet you weren't expecting this,huh? I've read it! Yes! Finally. And it was great. The beginning made me want to strangle myself but after the first 30 pages I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I am not a fan of classics. I haven't read one since high school. And if I read it before maybe I wouldn't appreciate it as much as I do now. Really well written,even though I read the translated edition. What was that ending? Oh,it was wonderful in a sad sort of way.
